    SMP Frame time sound right?

    Hey all

    I'm getting used to my new Linux SMP box, and I was curious if 25-30 minutes per frame sounds right for an Opteron 165 at 2.3ghz?

    With Winders SMP, I am getting 27-34 min per frame with my stock e4300.

    it depends on the wu, cpu and @ what ghz
    the more teh cache teh better. some wus kill u in ppd if you dont have a 2x2mb cache one

    I have WinSMP on an X2 3800 and avg fr timeis 28-33 min for just about any wu i've gotten. It seems you're right in the standard range.

    Re: SMP Frame time sound right?

    Which should be faster in a Linux SMP environmet:

    Opty 165 @ 2250mhz

    or

    X2 3800 @ 2500mhz

    Trying to figure out which machine gets which proc

    .



    With most SMP projects, the Opty 165 @ 2250mhz will come out ON TOP because of its double sized L2 cache in ref. to the X2 3800 @ 2500mhz ...


    EDIT: in a good OC environment, that Opty 165 should be able to get to 2500 MHz too !

    I'm limited by the mobo (or so it seems at the moment) by the 9x multi. I haven't had any luck going over 250mhz (or htt, whatever it's called).

    If you are having problems going over 250, try changing the HTT multiplier from 4 to 3 and try lowering the ram divider. If you post what board it is. I'll do some research on it's settings to see if I can give some more specific info on where to make the changes and the terminology that it uses.

    ya know, I never thought to dig further to change much else except for ram divider. The board is a Biostar 6100-M9, and the proc is an Opty 165

    Those are nice boards, but not as overclock friendly as the TForce-6100. Now someone will surely correct me if I'm worng, but on page 14 of the Bios manual it shows the HT multipler settings under "Advanced Chipset Setup". Try setting these to 3X (there should be four entries). What you want is for the HT Multi x the HT bus to be less than or equal to 1000. Some boards will go slightly higher, but 900 to 1000 is the sweet spot for most boards. The default is 4x which will limit you to about a 250 bus. 3X will get you to about 333 in theory, but it's doubtful that board will get that high.

    Also, on page 23 "Power Management Setup" make sure that K8 Cool N' Quiet is set to DISABLED (the default is Auto). This will sometimes lower your OC potential.

    I don't have that specific board, but I do have two of the TForce versions so I have some idea what it's capable of. I was able to get up to 2.6 to 2.7 with Opty 165's on them as they topped out at about 300 fsb. Not sure what yours will be capable of as it has fewer settings, but I'm betting that you should be able to bet a bit more out of it with a few tweaks.

    Re: SMP Frame time sound right?

    well, after dropping all those "4x" to "3x", I'm at 278x9, or roughly 2500mhz! I bumped up the voltage by 0.05 v, just to ensure stability. It gets a little unhappy at stock volts.
