ASRock Dual SataII + Opteron 146 :) :) :)

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just picked up both the ASRock and Opteron 146 Cabye 0540FPBW. have not installed it yet but Will tonight so stay tuned and I will let you know how this combo goes.

So far the Opty seems to be the good one here.
I had it on my cousins MSI Neo2 Plat and results were impressive.
THIS IS OPTY ON MSI NEO2 STOCK AMD HS/F COOLING

BTW this is my first AMD EVER as well as my first AMD overclock, been an intel boy for 10 years. After seeing the Opterons and reading on them for a month, just had to do it.

Once my XP-120 is on this opty, I think it will do wonders The only thing thats going to hold me back is my crappy ram .

I think at 2.5-3-3-8 it only does like 250mhz

What I noticed on the MSI was that it had THE MOST STABLE vcore i have seen. very little fluctuation and I think the stable vcore really helped me over the edge.

Will do a little review on the ASRock and compare the over clock experience to the MSI.

MSI was unbelieveable amazing to OC. I dropped in the Opty, went to bios, made a few small jumps in HTT(HTT goes to like 400+ or something) and once I realized that CPU is gonna take it. Went staight to 250HTT, then 275HTT and 300HTT. Did not have time to check stability because cousin wanted his board back. But it was just amazing how the cpu kept going on stock air and never even glitched loading into windows

Tell me how it goes, I'm hoping to get this same combo for christmas lol if I could even get 2.7ghz out of it I'd be happy and that seems to be a pretty easy task, maybe If I get water later I'll reach the 3ghz mark or higher Yeah for Opterons! the only problem with this board is that it has a max v core of 1.55 I think, but there are mods to let you push it higher

its 1.55 after the mod I believe. But there are MORE mods that you can, mods are mostly hardware configurations. (change the resistance, Yay for VR resistors )

Ill keep you all posted

I used to run 2.86 ghz on stock air with stock paste on my MSI. Do a little research and you'll find that the MSI is extremely close to the DFI in OCing ability. There's a reason that both the Neo2 and Neo4 series have won so many awards......

I don't doubt that one bit sccr. MSI neo2 (the one i had a chance to play with) is a WONDERFUL board. Everything was just nice and smooth on it. I know I can hit 3gig stable with that board. Love the board.
If ASRock fails me, MSI for sure.

Hi, sorry if this is random but I saw you have the same board as me (ASRock 939 Dual SATA II) and was wondering if you could tell me how to change the HTT multiplier? I've looked through all the options in BIOS 1.4 and I can't find anything other than the RAM timings, CPU multi, Bus speed, and some options for NB and SB frequencies (ranging from 200MHz to 1000MHz). You obviosly know what to do, can you help me out please?

You should start your own thread if you need help, but the option that you're seeing to change the Northbridge frequency from 200 mhz to 1000 mhz is changing your multiplier for you. Let me guess, your choices are all multiples of 200? If so, 200 = 1X,400 = 2X,etc)

There aren't any "jumper mods" all the volt mods require conductive paint or soldering. But they arent that hard to do.

Make sure to use a beta bios , or bios 1.2official. Anything else will suck for OCing. GOod luck have fun
