Any luck with intesity and Opterons?
on Sep 4, 2008 at 5:15:27 pm

I have a Tyan Thunder (s2895) Mobo and dual Amd Opterons (940). I just purchase the intensity card to preview my After Effects work on my Sony HDTV and I haven't had any luck installing the card. It makes my system very unstable. Just wondering if anyone has similar settings. I understand the Mobo is not the list of recommended Mobos in Intensity website but I thought I give it a try. Its funny though, they recommend you have the fastest system possible but out of all the Mobos they recommend I don't think they have a single dual CPU Mobo there. I also have a Supermicro server movo for dual 940s that I haven't tried but I have a feeling if the Tyan doesn't work. Chances are the Supermicro will be worst. Well if anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thank you

I have had a number of these boards working with Multibridge extreme, and HD extreme cards and Quadro 4500, but have never tried an intensity. Its a very stable system once configured. Runs everything. BIOS settings are a little tricky, and you need to start with latest flash for this board, as they fixed some issues with PCIe bandwidth share. V1.05 or 6, I kind of forget. Also approved ECC registered RAM is a necessity. If you have done everything right, and instability is an issue, I would suspect a power supply. These CPUs are heaters, and its not going to run on a 400 watt vanilla supply reliably. If you are running VISTA drivers may be a problem.

Thanx for the advice. I do have a 900W power supply and I'm running XP proffecional. I will check on the BIOS since I'm not sure if I have the latest one. But that gives me a place to start looking.
