Attention users of Opteron 165, do you have voltage reading problems in Windows?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Of course my board was not designed for dual core, they never are. So I have the latest bios update but this stupid voltage problem is giving me a headache!

When you have raised the VCORE to 1.45 does AMD power monitor still say 1.35? I can't tell if the voltage is still at stock or if there is a problem with the sensors working with Windows programs.

I can't figure out why the bios voltage monitor gives me the correct voltage (1.45) but every single program (AMD Power Monitor, Cpu-Z, Sandra) all say 1.35 volts even under load.

I need to know if I have a :turd:motherboard or if this is "common" problem

I'm currently at 280MHz X 9=2500MHz and I can't seem to go higher even though my temperature is low and I *THINK* my coltage is at 1.45 but who can really tell. Blame the chipset? Maybe blame it on the fact that the motherboard is not doing what I tell it to do when I raise the vcore in the bios. I bought this motherboard because it could "overclock".

The NF chip set is the one of choice.
Your 800Pro is known to be a bit finiky, they didn't get the PCI lock right until the 880

Bump your multiplier down too 8x and stick 5x on 3x. Then you should achieve 300+

330 is about 3GHz at least on my board.

I almost bought an NF 939 but there is a rediculously high demand for them on ebay. (it's the only place I could have found a socket 939 with AGP with an NF) I guess I should have just bought a better one.

Thats about the lowest you should go, just go ahead and try what I told you. I wouldn't guarantee 3ghz+ unless your using a x2 512. But as long as you bring that multi and stuff down you should go beyond 280MHZ, if you can't then it's your memory at fault, not the motherboards. Also take the fact into account that you are not using a NF4 board as mentioned previously.

I'll try it although I suspect it's the high FSB that's causing the problem to begin with. What I don't know is isn't an apg lock an agp lock to matter chipset it is?

How will a HIGHER FSB make it any better. Isn't the lowest FSB possible better?

There's a burning smell from my MOBO! Oh wait, the neihbor's burning wood.

theres'a a clicking sound from the pc speaker everytime I type, not to divert from the topic but this is odd.

The NF series perform better and have a solid lock on the AGP/PCI or PCIe/PCI.. MB dependant, where as the 800Pro never got the AGP/PCI lock to work 100%.. the 880 did though.
