So anyways, he's got a new 939 Opteron, he claims he overclocked it to 6GHZ! Also, he said that he raised his voltage from its stock voltage of 3.3v (I have no way of knowing if this is true, can someone please clarify) to 17v! He also said that within 5 minutes the temperature went up to 88 degrees fahrenheit, so he purchased a water cooling system (For \$150) which then brought it down to 12 degrees celcius! Now... I don't know if hes right, seeing as how he has like 300 million certifications and he onced worked for microsoft, so thats why I'm asking you guys. I really think, personally, that hes lying! __________________

As for the other statements you listed I have no idea. I helped my buddy oc his 64 3200+ (2.0ghz stock) to 2.7ghz with stock cooling, which is a 35% increase. If you equate this to what AMD rates their processors, then: 3200 * 0.35 = 1120 1120 + 3200 = 4120 Which may not be as accurate as how AMD rates their processors, but this is the only way I could make sence of what he might have done. Based on my example he would have had to double the clock speed. 3200 * 1.0 = 3200 3200 + 3200 = 6400 Obvisouly he didnt haev this cpu, but that shows you what he would have had to do. My buddy's pc, will only allow him to oc it by 1ghz, based on the ram fsb fractions. that is only and equivalence of 4800. __________________ __________________ Member of the right wing conspiracy theory.

I'd do the same exact thing... tell a bunch of school kids a bunch of blatant lies... smile and say, "I want your 1000 word essay on my desk 1st thing tomorrow morning!" CLASS DISMISSED!
 11-08-2005, 07:17 PM #6 (permalink) Ultra Techie   Join Date: Aug 2005 Posts: 765 Thats what I thought. When I asked what stock voltage on the opteron was, he replied 3.3v and I'm like :| REALLY? What kinda stock cooler came with it? "A big hunk of aluminum with a fan on top."
 11-08-2005, 07:37 PM #7 (permalink) Monster Techie   Join Date: Apr 2004 Posts: 1,842 Well that wouldn't even be proper cooling for a normal overclocked computer. I'm gonna have to call a BS on this one. __________________ The Stargate MMORPG
