Stable under stress testing, but.....

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Alright, I'm about ready to pull my hair out. My CPU went up to 4.0GHz like it was nothing and passed stress testing. It seemed to run fine, but it still has random crashes under normal use. It passing stress testing like nothing. I debugged and the BSOD codes I keep getting are 0x124 and 0x116. I know those can be vcore codes, but they can also be QPI/VTT or IOH codes. It feels like a graphics card issue by the nature of the crashing and due to the fact that is breezing past CPU stressing. 0x124 can mean bring QPI (and/or vcore) up or down. 0x116 is a graphic card issue, so increase IOH? Hell, I might as well list everything.........

vcore 1.300v
multi x21
Bus speed 191
DRAM 1.65v (which is within it's rating)
pll 1.88
ioh 1.2
ich 1.2
qpi 1.30

I just brought qpi down from 1.35 because I felt more comfortable trying to lower it first. Right now, I'm just waiting to see what happens. Anyone seeing any glaring issues I'm missing or need any info I didn't list? I'm stuck.

I've pulled this guy out of a dump also. A common Nvidia problem a year ago, but don't see much on it lately.

No one has a comment? Alright, how about this one question, then. Is it even likely to being over volting (vcore, qpi, or ioh) at these settings or is it more likely I'm not using enough?

What stress testing are you doing? (e.g. P95 blend 10 hrs, IBT 20 passes)

What voltage do you get at idle and what do you get at full load (according to CPU-Z)?

So I'm assuming you just used P95 Blend 10hrs, which is not long enough IMO. 24hrs if you are using blend, 10 hrs if you use custom torture tests (depending on the tests you are running). IBT 20passes does not = stablility in my experience. It is a good starting point.

IDK if you already did this, but I would definitely test the RAM first using memtest+. The goal is to try to narrow down what's causing instability.

This.

You need to really make sure it's stable under load. P95 blend for 24hrs is more realistic. 20 runs of IBT is only a quick check, not a sufficient test for finalizing an overclock or calling anything stable. If it's truly stable under load, then we can go from there.

Sorry, I thought I answered the question. That might have been vague. I have run memtest and my memory is great. I can run P95 for 12 hours if I get there. After a little more time, my OC is seeming less stable. It seems to be the video card and graphics related, which is why I believe I can pass p95 for hours on end. Here is a post I put up recently in the Nvidia section because I though the instability was my video card dying. That might or might not be the case.......

25% of the crashes are on window's loading screen when it says "loading desktop". It either crashes, pixelates (then crashes or sometimes recovers), or on rare occasions it boots perfectly normal. If it boots, it will crash anywhere from 10 seconds later or 24 hours later. I can do anything from kombuster to gaming and cannot cause a crash. It's totally random.
It turns out that I clocked my everything down to stock and the problem goes away. I start moving up past 3.5GHz and the video becomes unstable. I pump up the IOH to 1.26-1.28, but it doesn't stablize it. I am under the impression any more IOH is a bit much with out after market cooling on them. I thought that was the proper step. Upping the vcore doesn't help, either. To me, it seems that when my video card changes it's clock speed (up or down) that cause the crashing. I assume this is a power saving feature. Is my video card really the wall I'm hitting or is that just the way it looks to me? If I disable the Nvidia drivers or just uninstall them (converting the card to a basic VGA card), I can OC up to 4.5GHz (with a little more vcore) which is completely stable. No crashes, no BSOD, no nothing. I ran it like that for 24 hours with out a single incident. I have done a format and re-installation of everything with the same results.

Right now, I'm sitting at 3.5GHz
