    NF-M2 nView & Opty 1210

    It doesn’t pay to have spare parts lying around! Those of you that know me, know I'm a sucker for fleabay. Back when I smoked my abit NF-M2 nView I went shopping and ended up picking up two of them off of the bay. Don't ask me my logic but somehow ended up with a 2GB set of OCZ PC2-6400 (OCZ2P800R22GK) and G. Skill PC2-6400 (F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ). Then I ended picking up a zalman CNPS8000 (only God knows why!). So that left me with a mobo/hsf/memory but no cpu!! What to do???? Couldn't afford a 5000+ BE, already played with a 4000+ and 4400+ Brisbane, ah yes fleabay to the rescue! One each AMD Opteron 1210 AM2 @ 1.8GHz.

    So…..

    Mobo: abit NF-M2 nView
    CPU: Opty 1210 CCB6F 0750EPMW
    HFS: zalman CNPS8000
    Memory: G. Skill F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ PC2-6400

    Anyway just dropped everything together and fired it up to see what happened. At 03:20 I hit the power button…. IT WORKED! I'm still looking over my shoulder to see who set me up...it was just too d#%n easy. The initial bootups were FSBs of 225, 250, and then 280. Then started playing with ClkGen with the idea it wouldn't take long to bomb out and I could go to bed. WRONG!! That 1210 is a beast!!!!! Was doing my usual 8M runs of SPi and finally went down to 4M runs as it was taking too long and wouldn't crash. So I'm tired and got to think about work and it finally finished an 8M run at 360 x9 = 3.242GHz @ 677 T2 http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=355121 !! Was happy, said that’s it, and needed to go to bed.

    As usual my oc’ing has a shotgun pattern so thought that if I wanted to max (stable) this puppy I needed to do this in an organized manner – whatever that is. I’ve “locked” my setting as follows awaiting any suggestions to try for “improvement”. Heat should not be an issue in the final scheme of things as this may replace the 4000+ Brisbane in DCv2 and be water cooled. These setting gave me the following results:

    Using ClkGen and SPi (only do 8m runs) I was able to pull 361.67 X9 = 3.255GHz @ 677 2T http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=355523

    For a “stable” run did a 6 hour run of OCCT for 353 X9 = 3.177GHz @ 677 2T
    http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=355794

    The OCCT run showed Core1 fluctuated between 50C – 53C, Core 2 49C – 51C, and my Vcore averaged 1.52v. In bios Vcore is set to 1.475v but I’ve notice this particular board kinda “overvolts”.

    One thing I really had to get used to....the high values when running this thing as I kept thinking 939 Opty! More than one I had to go back and change the 2 to a 3 when doing the FSB in bios

    These newer Opty's are Great. I think they are the best Price/Performance chip in the AMD line up

    Agreed! If I didn't like the 4000+ Brisbane I already have and having thoughts of a HTPC I'd get another!

    Re: NF-M2 nView & Opty 1210

    Even though this is going to be a for sale setup think I'm gonna "upgrade" the hsf........while the 939 Opty heatpipe cooler is doing a good job for the CPU, the NB and Mosfet coolers aren't getting that much air. Have an older Zalman CNPS7000-CU LED that I think I can change over from 939 to AM2 with a bracket swap.

    Situation Normal........can't do a simple build even if it is for sale!

    Well that's too bad, jedi .... that is some good ram!

    I'm not sure where you could find a single stick, but I know someone who has a set....

    The best 800s I've ever had for sure and whom might that someone be???

    Would be tempting if I was going to keep the build, however.........

    While I was able to update to AM2 and does a nice job of cooling the cpu (a lot quieter than the Tt Smart Fan) there is not enough flow to cool the NB & Mosfets like I wanted.

    G. Skill was there usual fantastic and had the new stuff in the mailbox 7 days after sending it (Fri to Fri)!!

    Been playing with it again and all is cool, however did some switching again the HZs are now going into YsSMN v3 (up for sell) and it is still amazing!

    Right now the 790GX XE / 720 BE at 1.45v ran 24 hours of Prime with the mem at 800-4-4-4-12-2T at factory 2.1v.

    The for sale version of BHrDx v4.0 is getting a set of F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ and have had to dial back the overclock. May start something in the mem thread to see what help I can get.
