JEDEC lists PC6400 memory to run at email@example.com volts. I suspect he is buying JEDEC complaint memory but the motheboard is not liking what it is seeing.
A BIOS update may be in order if there is one available and it offers better memory compatability.
Been running D2OL now for over twelve hours and it seems to be jumping between 46 and 48 degrees. Now that I know everything works I will pull the chip out and lap it down to 1,500 grit and use some AS5 on it.
Quite the opposite in fact, all AMD Athlon MP CPUs save for the 2800+ were 256Kb parts, just like the Sempron.
Regarding the voltage, you are giving it way to much for the clocks speed it is running at. Assuming you have a B0 stepping T-Bred core (which you should have) you should not need...
I picked up the same combo for a friend of mine last week, got a 32-bit cpu.
You got a D0 stepping, which is a Winchester based Sempron. Origionally these were 32-bit only but AMD flashed the CPUs to be 64-bit and repackaged them. The Venice based Semprons were 64-bit enabled from the start...
I doubt there will be any Socket 754 SLI/Crossfire boards released. Socket 754 at best is a value oriented platform which by definition is not going to receive this type of technology. Besides Socket 754 will be heading out the door soon as Socket AM2 (DDR 2) comes into being and Socket 939...
That is not an AMD 586 CPU, rather the 5x86. The AMD 586 class CPU was the K5.
I had a couple of the AMD 5x85 133 CPUs clocked at 160MHz via a 40Mhz FBS. They were certainly faster than a 75 or 90MHz Pentium CPU.
O and you do realize that Evergreen was just an upgrade CPU company right?
A week ago I started to play with one of my old Celerons again. I had a certain limit on the amount of voltage I wanted to give it so I ended up being stable at 3.96GHz, but I did get a run of SANDRA at over 4.0. :)
One would think that the reason we use thermal transfer compound would be to fill in these irregularities. If there were no irregularities and both the CPU die and the heat sink were perfectly flat there would be no need for any thermal transfer compound.
Also any irregularities on the CPU...
This is the silliest thing I have ever heard of, and you not conceding to the facts only makes your arguments sound dumber.
You complain about the quality of the heat sink included with the X2, yet AMD has sent you a heat sink that is obviously been tested with said CPU and has found to be...
My God you guys make cleaning off thermal compound to be a task. Wipe if off with a paper towel and finish off with some isopropyl alcohol on another piece of paper towel. See, was'nt that easy.
If you are talking about the bubble gum TIM applied to chipsets and GPUs then I can see using...
Why? These CPUs should of never of been offered to anyone but VARs from the very beginning. Selling these CPUs to us is a loss to them and they are loosing money left and right over it. The whole point of the Socket 939 Opterons was to get the likes of HP and Sun to have an entry level...
Ordered an Opteron on Friday and paid for ground shipping. It went out that afternoon two day FedEx and I had it Monday, a day ahead of scheduled delivery. :)
Cheers to Monarch and FedEx.
and why is this in the AMD Processors forum? :confused:
um ok. Since this is your first posting in this thread how exactly was I suppose to know these things? Bitching at a suggestion when you did not ask for the suggestion is just wrong. Much less I don't really care what kind of card you have, the thread started asked for a suggestion, I in turn...
Seems to be stable at 2.5GHz with 1.38 volts as reported by MBM5 on an Asus A8N-E. Temps were maxing out at 53 degrees running two instances of P95 x64.
Trying 2.6GHz now, but it is taking a bit more voltage. :(
Ordered an Opteron 170 OEM from Monarch on Friday for $356.00, should be here Tuesday. Unless the wireless ISP site survey guys actually install the hardware Tuesday I should be able to test it that evening.
Replacing the Athlon 64 in the sig.
The reason why no consumer Socket 939 board is allowed to offically support an Opteron is because AMD will not let the motherboard companys do so. Socket 939 Opterons are marketed towards low cost but high uptime workstations. AMD will allow only certain boards to officially support these...
