So what do I do now, just increase DRAM voltage?

whats your ram voltage at? maybe up it by one notch at first...then up qpi by a notch

that's why i like linx...it's faster and more accurate in my opinion

what's your qpi voltage set to?

my bad, it's called IMC on your board...bump that IMC up to about 1.35 and you should be much more stable

Don't know, will check if it fails again. And no I'm not posting from the computer I'm overclocking, in case you were wondering tongue.gif

What size did you use on your LinX test? Because theres no way I'm going to get 25 passes done in 8 minutes.. I just finished the first pass at 6 minutes.

mem size of 1024...then again i have an i7 so it's a bit faster with 8 threads...lets call it 20 passes...but it'll be much more stable based on those results...

Oh well you didn't tell me that tongue.gif
I was doing all memory and a huge problem size. Got my first pass done @ 18 seconds with 1024 memory size. 56 GFlops average

lol you must have nothing open...i was doing mine with like a ton of gadgets open and some other stuff, like music >.> lol!!! tongue.gif

yeah that sounds a lot more like it!

still do it for 25 runs, then do all mem once you mess with RAM...you might wanna go up to 2048 as well for a good 25 runs too just to make sure

My RAM is @ 1600MHz and 1.625V while I'm testing tongue.gif Finished the test @ 9m41s with no errors.

that's fantastic!

try like 5 runs using all mem and if it doesn't fail or suddenly your system is recognizing less ram then you're doing fantastic!
