Few questions, if you guys don't mind enlightening me...

1.Does windows seven ultimate 64 effect stability? I ask because i have been stable at 4.7 with vista 32 and could not get past prime 95 at 4.8 longer than 30min until i upgraded to ultimate 64. I am currently on prime95 for 4hours on blend, trying for at least 12hours.

2. My VID is 1.3861v and vcore at 1.456v. Are these too high? My temps are 68.72.77.70 and have gone up as high as 83 but not for very long.

3. why would windows vista 32 be so much different than windows 64 in terms of stability for overclocking? Could it also be that i updated bios on mobo to the latest one?

4.How do i join >>The Official ASUS P8P67/P8Z68 (GEN3) Series Owners Club>>?

Any info would be much appreciated. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Depending on you knowledge this should be pretty obvious. But not for everyone and even I cant confirm 100% of this.

A 32 bit os will not make use of x86_64 instructions there for very likely not using many transistors that otherwise would be in use. Another less likely point is the data bus which is 64 bit is only being utilized at a 32 bit length. But the reason I think this is probably not even related is due to from what i remember 32 bit length data is padded to 64 bit for the sake of simplicity.

All it takes is one transistor out of millions not switching properly at the set frequency to bring the machine down.

1.456V is a bit higher than the recommended 24/7 voltage, but is it at 1.456V at all times, or does it dynamically adjust according to the CPU usage (like, does it go down when the system is idle)?

I think that it might only be because of the BIOS update.

When prime95 errors out does it just stop processing those cores and/or just shutdown the pc if I have major errors? I want to stable my system but I don't want to screw up my cpu/mobo. So in theory my pc or prime should stop running or shutdown if any fetal errors occur such as overheating, or a prime95 worker receives an error on a core?

I'm assuming people run prime95 all the time to attempt to get there systems stable? I've ran it about 5 times already and haven't had great success(1 with fetal error on core 4, another with my stupid Asus suite error mobo overheat error) and a few where stable for an hour or two but didn't feel comfortable running for 6-16 hours before I could check it again.

i don't think you need a 2.1 edr dongle your broad as already got bluetooth
just double click the bluetooth icon in the task bar.you will get a box pop up

click on the add device and just let it seach for your item and then follow instructions
but also make sure you have enabled bluetooth in the bios.

It varies. If the voltage is too low, then your computer will either freeze or BSOD. If you encounter an error then increase your voltage a smidgen and retest.

That is why running Linpack (LinX, IntelBurnTest) is so much easier as you don't have to run it for 8-12 hours, you can do it for 25 passes using all RAM which comes out to 1-2 hours (more if you have 8GB+).

First, don't use the Asus software.. it sucks. Second, if you're encounter temperature issues then I would opt for a better HSF or check that yours is seated correctly.

Just run it overnight or when you're going to school/work.

It went up. 11hours on prime95 and vid is at 1.4011 with vcore at 1.480. Are these ok? My temps have gone up to 87 until i turned on the air conditioner and is sitting on 73-82.

It passed 12 hours on prime95 blend

but when it's idling it's vid 1.0007 and vcore 1.040

When a "worker" in Prime95 fails, that core stops being loaded and it just sits there idling. If two workers fail, then both of those cores just sit idling.

If the system locks up, then the entire system just sits there idling.

If you get a BSOD, then it will either reboot automatically and then just sit there at the desktop idling, or it will keep the BSOD up until you press the Reset button on your case. Either way, the system just sits there idling. Also, whether or not it automatically restarts depends on your setting in Windows.

In other words, there is no risk of screwing up your CPU or mobo.

If you want to know whether or not there's a risk of overheating, then run Prime95 for about 10 minutes: your maximum temperature during that time will be only about 1-3 degrees lower than the maximum temp during a 12-hour test.

Prime95 is a program that's used to check how stable a system is at the current settings in the BIOS or UEFI.

It's like building a bridge and then putting a ton of weight on it to test the bridge's ability to be a bridge. Prime95 is that weight.

Well, since it's idling like that, then I would say it's up to you. Personally, I wouldn't enjoy watching my load voltage go that high, but there are many who think I'm being a wimp.
