Sorry, but your answer is very convoluted. Basically, all I can say is the GPU has little to do w/P95 stability unless the hardware is faulty (in which case you need to RMA the GPU). But, if it was faulty, I'd suspect you would have experienced crashes when not running P95 as well.

This may sound dumb, but I would reset the BIOS and run P95 blend for 15 hours, just to see if you have any defective components.

Like I said, 12 hours of P95 doesn't = stability, IMO. Also, passing memtest86+ doesn't necessarily mean your RAM is fine.

Also want to note that you might want to give more details on tests you run. "Passing memtest" could mean running one test (which is probably not thorough enough), or running it overnight (which is a good test).

Sorry, I can't help much. But, it's difficult to see what is causing the problem with the little info there is.

For example, this is very confusing. You say can run P95 for 12 hours, but you can't get to 12 hours? After more time, your OC is less stable. But, you believe you can pass P95 for hours on end?

Very convoluted.

I have 3 OCd 9650s and have not upgraded for a while. Although I have read a little about OC procedures. I stumbled across one I thought seemed logical and includes information that may be of use.

Right. That's what I'm getting at. If my GPU drivers are enabled and my CPU is overclocked (past 3.5ghz) P95 can run minutes or 15 hours. It's totally random. If I disable my GPU drivers, I can clock up to 4.5GHZ and run P95 for 24 hours every time.

I did reset bios and did a format and reinstall. I ran P95 for 12 hours at stock everything with all drivers active. No problems. I ran P95 at 4.0GHz with GPU drivers enabled with mixed results, so I ran P95 at 4.5GHz with GPU drivers disabled for 24 hours.

If there are no better suggestions, I will do this overnight tonight. I didn't run memtest more than a few hours, so I will start there.

I don't mean to sound convoluted. I'm only sounding inconsistent because the crashing isn't following any pattern.

I'm wondering if your GPU is just bringing forth your actual system instability quicker...?

Ohh, gotcha! That does sound very strange. I'm assuming you don't have your GPU overclocked? The best test would be to swap your GPU to see if it's the GPU or drivers. But, you may not have access to one, so I would suggest to maybe rollback to a previous driver version (I'm assuming you are currently using the most up-to-date one).

Also, have you ran 3dmark? I would try to troubleshoot your GPU as much as possible.

I have not upgraded from my current 9650's but I have been reading some OC procedures regarding 950s. Please use your own judgement as those who posted before clearly know more than I do.

I found one step by step guide. Well written. See Link below:
Compliments to TECH REACTION. Author: miahallen

http://www.techreaction.net/2010/09/...nd-gulftown/3/

Here is a portion of the guide that seems relavent to your GPU flag:

IOH Core voltage is easy, if you are running a single PCIe card (graphics card), give the IOH Core 1.1V, two graphics cards 1.15V, three graphics cards 1.2V, or four graphics cards 1.25V. If you plan to run bclock frequencies far beyond 200MHz, sometimes it may help for the IOH core to be even higher.

QPI frequency = bclock x QPI clock ratio:
QPI or Quick Path Interconnect is the Intel communication path between the CPU and the X58 chipset on the motherboard. So all devices not controlled on the CPU die itself have to communicate with the CPU via the QPI. The PCIe controller is located on the X58 chipset, all of your storage devices, NICs, audio devices, USB devices, etc….they all have to communicate with the CPU via the QPI.

The thought of swapping crossed my mind, but I don't have a second rig and none of my friends are really into computers. They settle for laptops or pre-build machines. EVGA has approved a RMA, but I don't want to send back a functional card like a retard. I might just go that route. I'm about to break down my hole water cooling loop to clean and upgrade, so I won't miss it for a few days. I've tried rolling back drivers, I even used the disc that came with it. I know those worked great when I first got it. I still have the same problem. I haven't run 3Dmark, I'll do that. If my CPU is below 3.5GHz, I can overclock the GPU or not without any problem. Again, that just adds to the strangeness. OCing GPU, also, doesn't make the system any less stable (that I can tell) when I'm over 3.5GHz.

I'll reiterate this part, again. I really seems to be when the GPU, memory, and shader change their clock speeds. You know how they step down all those when you are just sitting idle? (Haha, I hope that is a power saving feature and not a malfunction that I didn't know about.) That's when it seems to happen. On log in, I'm guessing it goes from low power to full power. Then, if there is no crash/lock up and I boot windows without a problem, I can run Kombuster or FurMark with no problem. If the GPU demand is constant, it doesn't really ever have a problem. I can even play shogun 2 for hours. Once I stop and it cools down, if I open a webpage with a few high rez ads or something on it, then it crashes. I'm thinking this is during a step up (after the cool down from gaming/kombuster) to increase performance for the more demanding stuff, again.

Maybe I'm overvolting it. I'll back down as low as I can and give it a shot.
