Hope someone can help with my o/c.
Setup is an Asrock Dual Sata mb, Opteron 146, 2 sticks of PC4000 in dual
mode and Hiper 580w psu.
I have an Opteron 146 which is 15hr Prime stable at 2.92Ghz at 1.4v.
Getting past this speed is proving impossible though.
I've bumped the voltage to 1.425v and 1.45v and the only thing going up is
the temperature from 46 to 52 under priming load, max o/c stays the same
Also tried changing fsb and mulitplier 292x10 to 325x9 and above, no help
though, as well as relaxing memory timings and memory dividers.
Do i need more than a 1.4 to a 1.45v increase to continue o/cing (mb needs a
volt mod to go past 1.45v) or is something else holding me back?
thanks for any help,

You can try upping the chipset and ldt voltages. I also found that
loosening the RAM timings can add to the instability.
I don't know why, but tightening the timings actually helped me gain
stability at faster RAM speeds.

Unfortunately this mb doesn't support chipset and ldt voltage changes, just
memory and cpu:(
Which memory timings did you tighten to improve your o/c?
thanks for the help,
