How do you get around the 2600K idle bug? - Page 6

post #51 of 117
Problem is, Linpack was designed to be an internal QA test for binning CPU's, and was never intended to be run for 200 runs. When it came out, you were CRAZY to run it for 50-100 runs, and running it for 10 runs in windows 7 would take over an hour. But now it's become accepted to run it for 150-200 runs? Come on, guys...I think enough is enough. Eventually, we're going to see people say "omg, 200 runs isn't enough! it failed at 180! You have to run it for 1000 runs before you can call it stable, and a week of prime blend!

Now, I DO understand that these cpu's are a lot different than the Core 2's, and it was only necessary to run Linpack for at MOST 20 runs (with the average being 10) on the C2Quads, or you could risk degrading your CPU significantly at higher voltages...but 200 runs?

That's exactly the route that everyone is going...seriously. It's getting downright excessive and absurd now.

If you actually need to run linpack for 200 runs and 48 hours of prime blend, just to prove stability, you're doing something wrong. And doing nothing except feeding OCD, which is a very common, yet very serious disorder a lot of people have.

You'll preserve your overclocked cpu's, AND your electric bill, AND your sanity, if you tone down this OCD and just start using the computer normally. Yeah, no one likes to BSOD in Starcraft, but I'd rather do that, than have my computer unavailable for 24 hours while I run 200 runs of Linpack Better yet, why not contribute and put your computer to good use and FOLD, instead? You can be 12 hours Prime stable and BSOD 0x124 when folding...plus you're helping put those cpu cycles to very good use....

200 runs on IBT with the updated linkpack is complete overkill, a: because temps for me reach over 10c than actual priming, b: it loads a little higher voltage and c: nothing will stress the cpu more than prime so whats the point of IBT? but I just do around 20 runs just for the heck of it. I personally prefer priming for 12hours+ than running IBT for 100+runs but that's just me.

OP don't feel like im targeting you but you have been claiming that your cpu is stable without any proof and well it could contribute to the bsod in idle.

I said I ran OCCT Linpack, not Intel Burn test

I know they are basically the same thing (Both use the same linpack)

And your version I can't get to run cause windows 7 by default uses up some memory (I have a lot of programs installed and running in the background) so I can't use the max memory 14300MB+ option, I can only do the 4000MB+ option

EDIT: I don't feel like you are targeting me, I just feel Prime95 doesn't do as good a job as Linpack does

My last system a Phenom II 1090t I ran prime95 for 24 hours at 1.3000 volts 3.6ghz and it passed, I loaded up OCCT Linpack and it failed within 11 minutes, I had to bump it up to 1.3250 volts to be 100% stable

run it with what ram you have available.

EDIT: that could be your next move, after 20runs of IBT run prime blend for 12hrs+.

@Falkentyne

Just wondering if you have power saving enabled? When I turned off c3/c6 it solved all the idle issues ( I believe ) and now my issues are in middle to light load.

With my 4.8Ghz @ 1.452v ( DVID +0.115v offset) I had no issues with anything at all but I think I'll just tone down to 4.5Ghz im positive there will no difference in gaming and every usage between 4.5 to 4.8

You recon I just should settle with a 1.360v max load at 4.5Ghz and just call it a day w/o looking for the lowest possible Vcore?

maybe you should open your own thread now

I don't get how prime stresses a CPU more then Linpack, when Linpack is also doing calculations to stress the processor up to max load
post #58 of 117
I cant give a straight answer but not all applications stress the processor the same way.

LINPACK just really stresses the FPU and the caches of the CPU. There are other parts that Prime95 can stress more.
post #60 of 117
Prime also runs my cores to 100%, confused on that statement.

Depending on my OC, I use different LLC settings.

For my current 4.7Ghz overclock I use 1.36 set in bios with high LLC, I also turn up the vrms to 140% capacity, it helps keep the idle voltage up as well.

At idle I only drop down to 1.356, at load I stick around 1.36 mostly, however it does go up to 1.37... My chip isn't that great, I could probably fine tune it a bit more but I'm switching out profiles from 4.2 to 5.3 so often right now I just don't have time.
