Setting up 180 Opteron

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
right...

looking for advice on setting up a Opteron 180 on the wonderful 939 Asrock Dual Sata motherboard...

For non OC'n purposes, what should the:
Voltage be set to?
What Multiplie setting to use?
(and any other setting i am missing)

not really wanting to blow the thing up when i switch the pc on!

Overclocking adive would be grand as well!

Voltage should be 1.35, multiplier should be 12, HTT mulit should be 5X.
As for overclocking, if you already know the limit of your motherboards HTT than I would start off by lowering the HTT multiplier to 3X. Than I would start raising the HTT in increments of 5 and testing for basic stability. Once that you hit a wall, raise volts in increments of .05 and contiune to raise the HTT. I wouldn't let the volts go higher than 1.55 on air. As for RAM, you should also lower your divider to the lowest it can go so that you are not limiting your overclock with your memory. Once that you have achieved a stable overclock than I would start to overclock the memory to as close to running a 1:1 divider as possible.

Valllldondo, the 180 does require quite a bit of voltage for a decent overclock. This of course is just from viewing average overclocks. I don't have any experiences OC'ing a 180. Just make sure when you start changing the voltages that you keep your eye on the temperatures. If your budget permits I would pick up an aftermarket cooler.

Don't worry about "blowing things up", that is practically impossible

QuickS, great suggestions +1
