I thought you meant top of the line in general
I have two 939 chips...
1. Athlon64 3200+
2. X2 3800+
... I love 939!
I'll give it a shot! Since I got my new PSU I want to try getting a bit more out of my Opty. What are some good memory settigs at cas 3? 3 3-3-8? 3 4-4-8? More?
I would say try 3-3-3-8 if it doesnt hold stabily try 3-4-4-9 . Its worth the try as you can keep the HTT high on that mobo , it helps the higher the ram is. My DFI would scream at 1200HTT and 272 MHz RAM and 3.0 on my opty 170.
<<<<<<-------stats are over here....i just got my 3870 today in the mail.. it is not in yet...as my lady got it off the front porch this afternoon and im at work. TF2 here i come..... (it comes with the orange box. )
It would be cool if I could break 11000 in 3d06. I could do it the easy way with a 8800gt, but that would be no fun.
I still get under 10k in 06 because of my damn GTS.
over in the AMD clocker club is a post from Rick22 running those stix at 300MHz ...it can be done it just isnt 24/7 stable.
I just saw his cpuz shots, now I know his timings. He was running 1 gig in dual channel so he may be luckier than me. I can't get anything to work with the 183 divider?! My best "stable" OC so far is 3.1ghz @ 1.5v's, and about 512mhz on the memory.
Here's my 3d06 score with my htt at 1200 and memory at 500mhz. I figure a run at 3.1ghz, the bump in ram, and a bit higher clocks on the shaders of my 8800, and I should hit 11,000. The thing is, the difference between 3.0ghz and 3.1ghz is a full .1 volt! Not bad for a "old" AMD system.
Here's a 3.1+ run. I think that's as far as I'm taking it unless anyone has any suggestions. I really do have to run the voltage that high! 3ghz and down, barely any voltage increase needed! As you can see I'm doing some "winter oc'ing".
Nice one erocker. I think that aside from getting 4GB of matched ram (I already know what I'm getting) the only thing I want to replace on my DFI is the CPU, I want an Opty
Oh, I will probably be getting a bunch of other stuff, but that is at least transferable to other rigs. Like a Logitech G15 (my next purchase after ram), Samsung 226BW, 2x150gb Raptors, Sound card and PSU.
You can find used Opty's all over the place, here and on the [H].
See Sig all the specs of my S939 rig.
X2 email@example.comGHz, used to be an Opteron firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz before the move to dual-core.
Ram: 510MHz 3-4-3-8-1T
CPU Voltage: 1.52v
RAM Voltage: 2.9v
I have a S 939 to.
3200+ Venice 2GHz runnin 2.5GHz (1000HT)
2x 512MiB DDR400 Kingston KVR crap
MSI K8N Diamond plus(love that mobo so much)
But will loose it in like next fortnight.:-( Have to sell this up to get my new Intel CPU.(I won a Striker extreme so hoping to sell this)
Im looking for a good 939 upgrade for my current system. Currently I have a X2 4200+. Anything still on the market worth buying?
I think most newer Toledo cores overclock well. Ouch, not very easy to find. As I said above, there are plenty of used Opty's for sale around the web.
dual core opteron is the only upgrade worth having....try to find a good stepping or a known good clocker tho!!!!!
Well my current CPU is in fact a duel core 4200+ Is the Opti that much faster?
With a better cooler and motherboard you could find out!
Dude, how do you get it to display those rock-solid numbers? My motherboard is all over the place. Right now I have it set for 218FSB, but it is 218.5, and the HT link and core speed flucutates.
update.. to give you an idea of how much a stock 4800 x2 939 will bottleneck a hd3870...
<<<----- these stats..laid down 127XX in 3d05...i havent run 06 yet.
i have a copy of the orange box im loading up tonight..then maybe some fear extraction point...it should game ok at 1680x1050 with some aa and af. i just hope i can squeak out cod4.....must.....shoot .....strangers ...(on the internet that is)
Dont you hate it guys when someone uses the wrong version of a word?
Its "dual" not "duel". Dual means "two" and "duel" means "to fight".
Just messing with ya.
