New Opty 165 not stable at stock speeds - Page 2

post #11 of 26
The newegg specs have the stock voltage as 1.3 - 1.35, try giving 1.35 volts a shot.

THIS IS THE INFORMATION FROM AMD WEBSITE FOR OPTY 165

Integrated Memory Controller 1.8GHz
Core Voltage 1.3 V/1.35 V
Case Temperature 49° C to 65° C
Wattage 110.0W
L2 Cache Size 2 MB

The official voltage is 1.3 to 1.35....
Should I still raise the voltage?

or should I flash the bios (even though the version I have is the same as is on the DFI Website)??

Try raising the voltage, that will almost undoubtedly fix the problem.

Chill.


If you used winwhatever, yes use a floppy and make sure the bios is all there, if it's corrupted (that program stopped at 38% when i used it, BIOS chips are hard to come by.) it might set things wrong, hence, instability.

I'm bettering it's something simple like that.

thats usually the problem. My ram is supposed to be 2.6 - 2.75 but it won't even work until you put 2.75 in it. Max reccomended is usually best for any comp' part (if you can cool it)

BIOS can't detect ram voltages, make sure you set them right or higher then spec'

I have no idea what my ram voltage is supposed to be.... I guess I could check corsair and find out...

Which would you do first, or rather, in what order would you do the following

Adjust CPU voltage upward
Adjust Ram Voltage (assuming it is not already correct)
Flash Bios

Btw, thanks for the help so far....

just do the first two first

1.4v on the CPU ( I can hit 2.8+ with 1.4v so stock speeds should be a breeze)
and 2.8v on your ram.

I had a very similar problem and it was down to a currupted bios settings. I cleared the cmos left it to clear for 5mins and it sorted the problem out.
Hope it helps

Kaks: Clearing the CMOS made my Opty stable for 3 or so hours rather than 3mins to an hour.

Technotub1, Paradox & Reberto: Upping my vCore voltage in the bios to 1.34 and setting the memory voltage manually to 2.75 finished the job. Opty is now prime stable for 9+ hours.

Thanks a million guys!
