Best processor on Octane 030-0887-004 board

Unread postby JacquesT » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:23 am

I've read somewhere you can't go above dual 300 cpu's on a 030-0887-004 board, is this correct? If not, what is the fastest CPU module the Octane 1 boards can take?

I assume also that a V6 and V8 works with a 1.3 XBow and V10/V12 need XBow 1.4 as long you have a Cherokee PSU for all VPro cards...

Thanks.

Granted, that's an 030-0887-005 mainboard, but AFAIK the '887' boards take up to 400MHz, and the '1467' boards take the R14K CPUs as well. The exception is the 270MHz R12K which requires the '1467' board also.

I've got an Octane running an R14k 550 on an 0887-004 board, haven't had any problems. Hinv here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4912

Thanks both. I cannot remember where I read the 0877-004 boards go as high as R14k 600 Mhz for single CPUs but less for dual cpus.
