Opti OCing Adventure Started!!!! Pics!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody. I have finally got my setup up and running with a temperary PSU that i borrowed from someone. I have been experimenting with my DFI board that has more options then i know what to do with! So i have just been messing around with the memory and CPU speed and at stock Vcore i am now at 2.8ghz solid. Screen shots are attatched.

I am running 28 degrees C at idle / ~37C at load.
I am new to AMD and this is the first time overclocking them so i do need a little help. Where I change the CPU speed, there are several different voltages too, but I cannot seem to find the Vcore which I now need to bump up a notch or two. Can someone with experience with this bios give me some help as what to change? I also need help tweeking my memory as it is DDR500 and I have room to grow.
Thanks

There are about a ton of posts on that... it's all in the core stepping and the luck of the draw.

Now back on topic

Ok thanks guys for the posts, and with this Opteron I got, I would really recomend them. I am absolutely amazed at AMD now. At stock 2.2Ghz, my Opti was noticly faster then my old P4 650 at 3.4 Ghz.

Anyway back to the topic, Duke : I have to change all of those 3 settings or one of the three? Also, what does VID stand for?

*EDIT* and if anyone is wondering, my opti is nothing special, Cab2e 0545 stepping which is nothing to brag about, yet I havent even raised vcore and i am over what a 37SD can do, I highly recomend these chips before they are sold out and out of production!

You might want to run some stability testing before making a claim like that. I've heard one's foot does not taste all that great...

shortfuse, after my mobile died and I decided to move to Socket 939 I was in the same boat as you. I went for an Opteron 148 because it was the same price as the 3700+ San Diego and maybe on the off chance I'll get a good one. And even if I don't, it'll still be just as good as most San Diegos. You don't have anything really to lose with the Opteron, and possibly more to gain if you get lucky.

Testing....
But really, what is the deal with the vcore, on my last motherboard there was just a option for vcore and you would change it from 1.2-1.7 but these are very different, can someone explain?

Also, here is the deal with my memory.

I am at a 5/6 ratio right now.

I am wondering why Everest tells me I have "Dual PC3100" when i have DDR500... Is it the ratio?
