Was just really curious on your temp differences between cores at load. Mine loads at 44/48c on stock volts.

Before my sig rig went down (which has an LCB9E 0652WPMW Opteron 170), on a very hot day (circa 95 degrees F in my bedroom
) the cores would be at 51 - 55 degrees C at peak (no spikes). This is also with less than stock VCore.

How hot it would've run with its IHS still on, I can't say; this chip went topless as soon as I decided to take it out of its box!


Hope this helps.

Yeah im too much of a wus to take the ihs off. Now my hotter core is 50 and the cooler at 43 been orthos testing, and this is with 24c room ambients. Its wierd though the core thats hotter at load is 6c cooler at idle.

I just lapped mine but I am still debating wether I should remove the IHS!

I was kind of suprised at the temps myself. I was expecting idle in the mid to high 20's with a good lapping job on the Tuniq, CPU and AS5 applied, but I wasnt even close to that!

These LCB9Es are strange creatures.

Based on reports I've read in lots of places, they overclock quite well (comparable to the legendary CCBBEs), and many do so on less than stock volts. That is certainly the case with mine.

Furthermore, they also tend to run very very hot, no matter what clocks or voltage they're set to.

This prompted me to ask about sensor calibration a couple of weeks back. It also makes me wish we had some other way to really measure temps (like, with a thermal imaging camera).

Oh well. As long as it doesn't cough up the magic smoke, I'm fine...

txtmstrjoe,
What do you have your vcore set at in the bios, and what is displayed in CPUZ and speedfan?

Thanks

Well mine is set at 1.3 in bios, and bounces between 1.328 and 1.344 in cpuz, trying 2.75 @ that vcore at present.

Well, before my motherboard decided to get cranky, the VCore was set at 1.1V; with VCore Overvolt enabled, the actual output was 1.3V.

CPU-Z and Everest confirm that the setting was at 1.3V.

See screenshot for confirmation.

(I miss my sig rig... looks like my NB got KFCd in the heat. RMAing will try my patience...)

The one I'm playing around with is definately not that OC friendly. I have it at 2.5GHz because at 2.6GHz, I have to up the vcore over 1.35v. This is my brother's PC so it has to be 100% stable, hands off. He wouldnt know how to do any minor adjustments. So I cant push it to its limit!

@ txtmstrjoe what bios revision were you using?

@ ericeod what kind of motherboard does your bro have?

For the A8N32-SLI Deluxe, BIOS 1303.

Well, if it's any consolation or help, it really wasn't all that difficult, to be honest. Just do it slow and steady. And be careful; you don't want a sharp blade cutting up things you don't want to (like a fingertip, let's say...).


There's lots of material available online on the subject. Reading up will allay your fears a lot. That's what happened with me, anyway.


Good luck, dude.

cool I have the same board, Im giving the beta 1405 a try out.

edit: @ txtmstrjoe, Im giving your suggestion of the 1.1 with overvolt enabled at 2.8. @ hours into orthos loading at 41/45.

This was the stock cooler at the time and it had a very big gap between the cores at idle, however when under load they became pretty even with each other. My A8N32 wanted to run a little warm sometimes upto 50c under load, but I think that is the common place for these boards.

I'm using the DFI NF4 UT Ultra-D motherboard with the SLI Mod.

I have the equivellant ASUS motherboard just sitting here collecting dust (A8N-SLI Deluxe), but I think the DFI is setup with the RGONE settings from DFI streets which are supposed to be very OC friendly.

Yes I would stick with the dfi. Well I tried what txtmstrjoe had for settings, and I got 2.8 15 hour stable, then I stopped orthos @ 1.3volts.
