setting my Opty 165 CCBBE 0616 to 3ghz?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
well I finally have my opty 165 rig assembled and according to what I've heard about the stepping, I lucked out and it should be able to hit 3ghz on air... however, my last system was the one in my rig so I'm not all too fimiliar with all the new overclocking options....

My rig consists of:
dfi lanparty nf4-d
opteron 165 CCBE 0616
crucial tech 2x1GB ddr500 dual channel
arctic cooling freezer 64 pro HSF

I should have adaquete cooling to hit 3ghz right? and what should my settings be on to do so? Please help

Throw your RAM on a divider and start increasing the FSB, see how far you can get on stock volts

what devider would you suggest? 5:6?
also what volts are generally required to hit 3ghz? should i also move my ram volts from 2.8 to 2.9 or change the timings at all?

Your stock volts should take you to almost a 50% OC. I can post with FSB up to 315 at 1.4V. My current cooling will not deal with the volts needed to go higher, so I am not sure (yet) how high is enough to get me to 3GHZ.

Also, I found as my OC goes higher, my HTT likes to stay at or below 900. You may want to drop to a 2.5 multi if you have problems.

I am interested in seeing your temps and how well your cooling does. I have to upgrade my cooler before I go further.

1.35v should take you to 2.8 GHz (from experience). in order to get to the 3 GHz mark you're going to have to know your stuff. 2.5x HT multi, 1.5ish vcore.

when i had first overclocked to 3 ghz i ran it really hot and really high voltage because thats the only way it'd do it. so i cut off my IHS and now it runs @ 1.48v and about 45c load...

be sure to break in your chip before you do some big overclocking though. run prime for a few hours at stock speeds and voltage.

is it generally a bad idea to break a cpu in at a higher freq? the second i got it, i ramped it up to 2.25ghz (250x9) and primed that for about an hour, then ramped it up near instantly to 2.7ghz and primed that for a good 2 or so hours (was this probably a stupid idea on my part?)

Right now, my cpu is running at 2.8ghz priming...I have my cpu voltage set at 1.45v with a 104% extra allocated (so its actually at 1.475v or so)...

whats the best temp monitoring program to use? I'm using speedfan but can't figure out which temp monitor is which... when I run 2 instances of prime95, it shows temp1 at 48-50ish C, temp 2 at 49-54ish C, temp 3 stays at 42 C, and the core is up at around 53-61C (which scares me)

Is temp 1 and 2 the cores, temp 3 the hard drive, and core the northbridge? I can't imagine core actualy being one of the cores... how could it get to 60C on 2.8ghz and 1.472Vs?
Can someone please define the temp monitors and what they actually monitor or suggest a better program?

what i did was run at 1.8 GHz for a few hours prime. then i upped it to 2.8 GHz just fine.

well, mine seems to be running just fine... except for the temps... can someone tell me what they use to monitor temps? and if its speedfan explain which monitor is which?

I would assume your motherboard supports it as well, but I just use an asus utility downloaded from their site. PC Probe 2
