Currently I'm trying to get 4. Yes, I do run each test for 12 hours after I finalize my overclock, for a total of 2 days more like 2 and a half actual due to gaps between running tests , but that is what I like to do to give me the best chance of a long lasting stable overclock. What suits you is up to you, but i am not supriced an unstable system, runs the 3 weak test and not the real stuff. Is there one free benchmark that is used and if so can some one please tell me. You're welcome to run them yourself, but respect the when answering questions.
As an analogy, in New Zealand, a person with a certain skin type may want to limit themselves to say 15 minutes of direct sun exposure since they sit right below the hole in the Ozone layer. Because you need some reassurance. Software Thorough and detailed information about startup, installed programs, etc. My previous x58 build ran 4. Let me know if there is anything else that I can provide. Do gaming, watch movies, what ever.
Or it's turbo-boosting a lot and thus allows short bursts of 25W but averages at 10W. Kindly follow the blow methods and check if it helps. Good on you for asking here! I can keep a constant water temperature of 20°C to make all the test results comparable. Hi, different story here, I have R52600 4. Now that I have more time I'm trying to push it further. Any stress test is just an indicator but it can be very helpful if you run targeted tests.
Stability testing to me is to show that at its worst, its stable, and since I will never put it to its worst in my normal usage, everything is great. There is a difference Click to expand. On the left side there are the main categories- Computer, Motherboard, Operating System, etc. Installed programs and Windows updates i. But then again it could be a matter of configuration as Zkal7 said. As the author of the Intel Temperature Guide - - I can fully appreciate how much work went into creating this outstanding article, which has been sorely needed! At that point I can't make the system crash even if I want to : Thanks for all the responses.
I then tried running the test again and this time it only lasted 20 minutes. Once I have everything, I put them all together and do final tweaking. Thanks For my uses gaming, surfing I see no reason to push a component to its power or thermal limit via synthetic tests. I have not found or heard of a real application, even at continuous and extended load,that generates anywhere near the thermal loading that linX can. I would suggest you to refer the below Microsoft help article on How to Perform Clean boot. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Handbrake encoding blue-ray movie in the background - i get reboots after 12-48 hours of this type of loads. I forgot to turn it off when I ran it before when I got the hardware failure message.
Aida64 also works well as a monitoring application, since it can read many temperatures, fan speeds, voltages, clock rates, and power levels. Sadly that is way to common and people quickly mistake it for a failure on prime95 rather than people not knowing when to use a hammer or screw driver As you said yourself you instant crashes due to a different load. It was overkill all it's life, but has reached the point that it's no longer worth stressing with. There's threads discussing and keeping track of scores for most of these. The bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 0xffffd08fc9be4000, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff80934d3d9ca. I had it start the trial version as part of the installation.
But then you run Crysis or Battlefield 3 and you get random lockups and reboots. A final run of 4 hours is enough to lock it in. It is divided into seven sections and they are as follows: a Windows Storage— here you can view a brief description of each device and their properties. You need to give all this information, including changes. Nevertheless, our results are very similar. First errors show up after about an hour and slowly one by one they appear in the log.
For example, lets say your system is arbitrarily 99% stable and this may result in a seemingly random crash for your daily computing every 1-2 days. I don't even know if it would give me any advantage. And typically that meant that if your oc survived linx, you were golden. Are you sure about this? All that does is shorten its life span. I did get a good laugh at the passion though, that's a man that takes his stability seriously. .
For you guys currently having a conniption over his or anyone's 3 hour prime stability test, you do realize their is a reason we as a community suggest 24 hours of prime testing for stability right? I was reading these unreasonable values for overclocking people were getting. As I said there's absolutely no information on how the stress test works so I can't have a proper opinion. Now, of course the basis of any stress testing is to reveal instability in a system that may otherwise take countless hours if not days to show up in normal, real-world loading of the cores. Are you overclocking one thing at a time? In future I'll probably run stresscpu, it's based on the folding algorithms so as far as I'm concerned it's the most useful: I'm not usually concerned about heat because I'm on water with plenty of rads and I'm not pushing crazy speeds. As it turns out, combining two bad tests gets you another bad test. Also, I wanted a one-click application that would spawn all the worker threads corresponding to the number of cores so I could test quickly. This means it produces a pure compute load, rather than falling back on furry cubes or donuts.
Any tips on what I can do to make this more stable would be much appreciated. And of course, as we said, it runs much cooler. At that point, before bed time, memtest+ overnight 12 hours F. Of course more is better. My build was missing a hotdog and its bun. Then some real world usage like games and encoding. By the means of it you can view the following info: raw error rate, temperature, program fail count, and so on.
