stock volts are 2.5 i think? try 2.6 or 2.63. that was the sweet spot for my last pair.

i've got an opty 170, haven't been able to install it yet, it arrived to my old locatlity which is a friends house haven't been able to get over to his palce to pick it up along with my 320GB SATA II 16mb Cache HDD... *anger* i will hopefully be able to go pick it up this arvo and install it and get this baby running, i was under the impression the G.Skill HZ was only able to get to around 280... if your lucky... but people saying 290 makes me feel better, aparently my board is good for it, so i'll pump it as hard as i have to i'm thinking of investing in a Thermaltake Big Typhoon in the next week or so... i've been reading some rather impressive results with these... it will be my middle step before water cooling once summer comes around again i'm already noticing GPU 2-3C cooler than normal and winter isn't even here yet... weeeee

the BT is awesome. good investment. im also thinking of building a custom wc kit sometime in the neat future.

Hey all i just got my Sexy opty 170 installed, clocked it to 250 instantly.. no power uppages or anything else.. booted fine no issues so far, now i need ot get two prime 95's running at once.... that could be an interesting one...

Stepping is:
OSA17ODAA6CD
CCBWE 0551UPMW
1392568L51013

anyone know anything about this stepping.. unfortunately i really really really can't tell you an accurate temperature for this thing idle.... it says 35C, but my old A64 3000+ said 21C idle whilst it was around 28C room temp.. which we all know is impossible...

i'm getting a VL Systems Zephyrus Temp sensor card thingy to sort this one out.. temp probes going under CPU, as close to GPU As possible and on HDDs

I think i'll leave my memory at 250Mhz for now.. maybe clock it up later on i'll jsut get prime95 running for now..

So anyway GO THE OPTY 170's WOOT MoFo's

EDIT:
==============
Preliminary results:
==============
Ok so after getting Prime95 running instant failure (Sumout error) which i was half expecting..
---------
-restarted upped volts (1.35->1.4->1.45) > same problem
-restarted again loosened mem timing (3-4-4-8@2.8v->3-5-5-10 @ 2.8v) > no change (reverted to 3-4-4-8@2.8v)
-obviously not ram, it is made to run at 250 at 3-4-4-8 several people have gotten to 275 or so with 3-4-4-8 @ 2.9v
-up vcore a bit more (now just error halted)
-lowered vcore back to stock, and left loosened timings and moved to 230FSB now priming and Super PI running at once, each on there own core seems safe for now....
---------

-ok so now will changing my HTT multi help me out???
-should i maybe try upping chipset voltage?
-any other suggestions from anyone????

I know much about that cursed stepping, I had that exact stepping and it was awful...Got it Monday RMAd next day...I'm waiting for a replacement...It was barely stable at 2.6

running further down the path of overclocking...

-Upped LDT voltage to 1.3v
-Upped Chipset from 1.52v-->1.59v
-Upped FSB to 240 Priming seems good.. i'll give it till the 800000 iterations then reboot and up the clock a little more...
-Currect Load temp "appears" to be 48C
-Upped Chipset fan to Full speed from 3500-7200 50C Load to 45C =D
-can't think of any other modifications...


EDIT:

GAY... ohh well trust my luck to get a dodge stepping... don't know how sucessful i will be in getting a new one though... i don't think they will let me say it is "faulty" and replace it as they will test it at "stock" speeds and say no problems.. deal with it buddy...

on the contrary i ran a quick search and found this...??? could be shopped no?

well i'm still capping out once i hit 2.5... cooling could be an issue... i might take it back to 2.4, lower all voltage to stock settings and see if it goes... right now i should go to bed.. as i have work at 10am, and it's now 1:40 am weeee

anyway thanks for your knowledge i might see if i can get a new chip anyway... Maybe sell this off to a friend of mine... for... $530 (i got it for $630) and asked the shop what stepping it has before i buy it... that way i can be sure what i am getting... it can't be too hard, you can see the stepping before you buy...

i'll get back to you all if i get anywhere further with this...

you got a 0551upmw for $630??!! i really hope that isnt USD

unfortunately most results ive seen on air is 2.5-2.6 @ 1.55v for this particular stepping.

you might gain a bit by removing the IHS or water cooling.
