Opty 165 - 2.9 @ stock volts, air cooled

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Naked CCBBE 0615EPMW running under a Thermalright Ultra-120. Before it could only do 286xMHz with 1.35 but after I remounted with electrical tape covering the caps, it got a bunch more



3GHz next, 3.1 hopefully after that!

PS the Prime95's are uneven because I decided to play some CS:S in the middle of testing.

edit: I also have an LCB9E 0704TPMW with the top still on that does 2844MHz with 1.35v, same cooling.

Zomg!! Why isn't my 0615EPMW doing that! I need at least 1.425v to make it stable(or so I think ).

Very nice and with low volts to...Congratulations...Let it burn in there for a little bit and I bet you will hit your 3 easy...

Sorry for bringing this back up but I'm amazed. I'm running 300x9 at stock volts as well. I probably would have never thought to lower the volts had you not brought this up since we have the exact same chip.

Hope that DFI treats you well into 3.0. I can't hit it because this board caps out at around 320 FSB which is ~2.9GHz. I've set my RAM to it's lower divider, raised the voltage a bit, and kept my HT multi at 3 but no dice.

Friggin sweet either way man.

The 165 CCBBE 0615EPMW is a great stepping, nice work

One thing you can try to get it past 320 is set your Max Async Latency to 9 and Read Preamble to 6.5 or 7. Hope it helps!

I know I'm gonna sound dumb, but why the need to put electrical tape on the caps?

Forgive my ignorance, please...

First, if the heatsink touches two at the same time it could maybe cause some problems, second, it makes it easier to balance the monster heatsink when mounting it. For some reason I magically got like 30 extra MHz when I remounted with the tape vs without - previous max at 1.35 was 2872, which dropped to 2863 once the heatsink moved around.

Anyway, 2952 with 1.4v is right on the edge of stability, it failed on Core 0 after 8 minutes but then ran for 4 hours with no problems. Core 1 failed after an hour and a half before I rebooted to change LDT voltage to 1.3.. hopefully it helps

Ah...

Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense, actually.
