Late night fun
I've got myself an Opteron UP146, an ASRock 939-Dual SATA2, some BH-5 and a X800GTO, so of course I needed something do with it all. First off was of course some WXP-install and stuff like that, then I had some fun with the BIOS, which didn't allow me to go past 275HTT. But flashing it fixed a whole lot. Broke 3GHz on air, and some other goodies as well, have a look.
And of course every system needs its dose of 3DMark, so I had to run it. Shame on the oc though, I never got it stable above freq's above stock, roughly.
Then I found myself having a bit of trouble with the memories, ol-skool BH-5, they don't seem to like running in dual channels above 250MHz, so I decided to just check what they handle individually. The first one was a bit disappointing to be honest, reaching "only" 270MHz 2-2-2-5 Memtest stable, but the second one... Oh yes. See for yourself.
At what voltage you ask? Got shocked myself when I first discovered, it was supposed to be 3.8V, but I guess I must have hit the knob on the booster just enough when changing the RAM to make it what it was in the end.
But the best part undoubtedly was the temperature of the module. It was a bit warm, but not hot. You were easily able to hold your finger on it.
All this with only a 120mm Delta blowing towards it.
Gotta say I'm quite satisfied after all, with a system that cost me ~4000SKR, about 500USD.
Man, or woman, or both?
