Hi guys
I am new here, I have Opteron 175 with DFI Expert and I was thinking about getting a VapoChill, but someone told that opty 175 is not good with VapoChill something about a cold bug @-10 what is this and is this true? Need your guys pro opinion here. What does this cold bug mean exactly?

Thanks in advance,
JK

you might have to try a forum like this

I don't think many of us here are worrying that our CPU's are running too cold /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />

All I am looking for is an explanation on what a cold bug means and will it affect it if I get a VapoChill?

Thanks,

Ok from what I read it seems at very low temperatures some cpu's won't boot, calling cold bug sounds a bit dubious.

I would think this a suck it and see kind of situation, not all cpu's encounter this problem at a certain temperature.
However most people who do encounter this "bug" are using liquid nitrogen cooling at around -20C.

I would think a Vapochill system probably won't reach these temps without a bit of help, but adjusting your lowest temperature will probably allow you to avoid the bug if you encounter it.

And really do try the other extreme overclocking forums, cause they are the only kind of forums you are going to get help on this kind of stuff. Becasue those temperatures are completley undocumented, untested and unsupported by AMD and will only every be encountered by the people in those extreme OC'ing fourm as you can see from the overwhelming response you got in this forum

But do report back on far you do manage to overclock your opty
