First here's a pic.



Opteron overclocking to 3ghz is pretty easy.As u see in the pic i used those settings.With vcore of 1.55 i hit 2.95ghz, imagine a vcore of 1.65 ill proly hit 3.1ghz with air cooling. Opty = insane cooling.


Timings ( defualt = 2-2-2-5 )
Timings (2) 2.5-3-3-7 2T
Vcore 1.55 ( MAX, here comes the climax of all this overclocking thingy, if i can hit 1.6vcore i would've got 3ghz easily)
HTT x3
FSB 268
MEM MAX CLOCK 333MHZ
multi x11
Vdimme 2.85
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
My point is, any kind of stepping for opteron is Overclox well, so dont let the forum guys yell at u teling u ( u mite get crap stepping they rall good
). However, opty is proofed by personal experince its cooler than the Venice 3500+ . I advise anyone who wants a good overclock and good cool cpu, i suggest an opty.Once i get new MoBo that allows me higher vcore ill post my results with 3ghz hopefully
. For now iam going to start to look for a mod for this Mobo.

Thanks.

good stuff! i got mine running at 3.0 @ 1.6v.

im waiting on my new memory so i can run 1:1 on my 273 x 11 setup


im gonna try for 3.1 maybe. and yes...that TTBT is a PAIN to put in! took me 2 tries =\\

if yours is a CAB2E, it might be a 5405 CPAW like mine. or u can tell everyone that so u dont have to take the TTBT off, lol

dude, dont use a divider with your memory...that memory can run 1:1 with your FSB. You are losing performance by running it the way you are.

you know that memory tab you show in CPUZ, that is your memory speed.
You want your memory divider to be 400, and not 333.
You want your memory timings to be 2.5-3-3-6 1T 2.7v

umm...yes it will...that's very excellent TCCD and doesn't like high volts. I wouldn't go over 2.7v.
That memory should be able to run close to 290mhz 1T 2.5-3-3-6. So this leads me to believe, you are setting something wrong.
