See. USB 3.0 is a no-no during Windows install. I think it has something to do with the Windows install software not having the proper driver support for USB 3.0.

Does the UD3 version perform well with all the DIMM slots being used? I've heard some boards don't and I'm wondering how many sticks of RAM to buy.
post #9303 of 12377
I had 4 before I sold 2 sticks, ran fine, good overclock too. (with rev 4)

I switch between 2 and 4 sticks sometimes because BF4 used to stutter like crazy with 8GB RAM. Ran smooth with 16GB. Only thing is the red Mushkins don't match color of build at all and requires more voltage on CPU-NB.

I am somewhat embarressed by the fact that I posted "I have avoided all noob possible problems" yet...3.0 got to me, the actual USB and not port sigh.

Good thing is each day is a learning day!! Thanks to OCN and the community=]

Good to know I'm not the only one who's experienced usb 3.0 issues during OS installs.
post #9309 of 12377
So I have ran the UD3 since October '13 and have not had any issues until yesterday. I was hanging in my room jammin to my favorite drum and bass pandora station and out of nowhere the audio went super distorted and staticky... Thought maybe pandora was screwed up so I closed the app and as soon as I closed the app the OS froze. It wasn't a complete lock up because I was still getting feedback from the SSD and HDD but explorer wouldn't recover so I did a hard shutdown. No BSOD or anything just the windows error saying it didn't shut down properly. Once back in windows I didn't recieve any driver errors or the "windows had just recovers from a serious error".... Nothing. Loaded up pandora again it was fine for hours. Later on I fired up BF4 and about 45 minutes in to a game it happened again. Had to force the shutdown again. After some quick googling, i discovered a few possibilities... The main one I found was HDD/SSD issues... I was confident that wasn't the problem, but I ran some tests anyways. All my storage was legit. Next step was drivers. I uninstalled and reinstalled audio/graphics drivers cleanly. 30 min into my next BF4 session it happened again. So I did some further research and discovered that voltage might be an issue. I'm not majorly overclocked. I'm running an fx6300 at 4.1 which is the "boost" clock for this turd and everything I've read says stock voltage for "forcing" the boost clock is more than enough. But just to test things out I went one step up on the vcore, NB core, and NB voltage. So now I'm at 1.2725 on the vcore, 1.225 on the NB core and 1.125 on the NB voltage. I finished off the night with about 2 hours of BF and about an hour of CS and have had no further issues. The only major changes I've made to the rig in the past few days is completing my WC setup. So I've added a pump/resi and 2 more fans for the 2nd rad. The only thing I can think of is that the power supply/mobo doesn't play nice when adding more load to the psu. I have a cx750 and everything at full load it barely touches 600w. Just wanted to put this out there, and will post again if I run in to more problems in the future. Any insight is appreciated though.

my advice start at the begining, and you need to test your stability

How much experience have you had with overclocking? This attitude is generally reserved for amateur overclockers who have never had corrupted data.

A stress test is running all of your CPU cores flat out for however long you run the test, unless of course a core drops out because your overclock is unstable, I see the need for short term testing say an hour or maybe 2, because it won't take that long for an unstable overclock to show itself, but 24hrs in my opinion is not necessary.

I think you are confused. The error is not found because the CPU is at 100%. A major error, or more likely, many tiny irrecoverable errors, happen at any % of CPU usage. The programs are designed to find inconsistencies as fast as possible, utilizing all resources available to determine the stability. Its not lets see how hard we can squeeze your CPU till it breaks. Is it stressful? Sure, is the stress that causes error? No, that would be instability or heat. Another good way to test your cooling solution too I might add.

There is not a thing on this planet designed to last forever, your precious CPU included when companies like Intel and AMD, guarantee their CPUs for 3 yr warranty time period, they're confident their CPUs will actually go past that time period, however that calculation is based on 3 yrs and beyond of normal use.

They know their CPUs are capable of lasting under normal spec'd use longer than the 3 yrs or they would not warranty them that long.

Not sure why this is even here. This has nothing to do with stability testing, unless you are assuming that all CPUs that are brand new should not be tested @ stock settings? Which a CPU should be tested to ensure its not defective. Rare, but it can happen.
Quote:
Now the cold hard fact is that overclocking your CPU will shorten its lifespan, but we accept that for the additional speed we gain, most of us will replace that cpu with an upgrade before is life expectancy arrives anyway, so taking it out of specifications is acceptable.

Has nothing to do with stability testing. Its about error prevention.

However that's with normal day to day use, surfing the web, audio and video editing and converting, gaming, office documentation Etc, and though serious bench stress testing is necessary to achieve a stable overclock, what damage does stress testing over a 24 hr time period and beyond, actually do to shorten the lifespan of your new CPU.

Why would you even overclock then

For example if you stress test your new quad core CPU for 24hrs, and all 4 cores are running at 100% for 24 hrs, how much normal daily processing is lost, because no daily application uses all 4 cores at 100% for 24hrs, so at least think about that when you overclock your CPU, and use at least some kind of wisdom in your stress testing.

Again its not the stress that creates the error, its stress that finds the error. Errors can occur with as little as 1% core usage. The alternative is to use your computer until one day, your boot sector is corrupted, and Windows 7 repair, can't fix the files as the damage has occurred widespread through your file-system. At this point you are even lucky to recover data off the hard drive. Assuming you are still not using an unstable overclock, recovering data, will most likely keep it corrupt/re-corrupt it.

Because if you don't think you're adding to shortening the life of your CPU, you're wrong!

Stress testing your CPU, if its adequately cooled, is not shortening your hardwares life, its the extra voltage/clock cycles from the overclock if anything. It sounds like you have a ton still to learn / grasp and thats okay. Overclocking has many useful applications, such as a technical server upgrade, gaming, scientific calculations, protein folding, etc. Many of those demand stability for personal and professional reasons. Folding requires 100% accurate data, or its wasteful time for both the user and server, which anyday can provide a cure to cancer (hopefully.) A non tested overclock in that field is extremely frowned upon by many people who dedicate entire machines to just folding.

I am not saying you have to stress test your CPU, or it will die and kill everything in your computer, but you are not going to convince anyone who knows what they are doing that its a waste of time.

I don't get why people are ever against having a fully stable system? It takes about a day if you actually have good settings. Maybe apathy or general laziness, but still, it will create so many headaches in the long run trying to figure out why the computer just doesn't want to work today.
