2600k on ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Good point. My finite element software generally puts the CPU usage at around 15-25%... it doesn't fully utilize all 8 threads...only used the main 4 without HT. Thanks for the help

I got a 120mm fan sucking the heat right off these ram chips so they are bulletproof. I don't mean to dismiss prime95, a tool is a tool. I was just telling you guys that if you are passing the intel burn test under maximum settings for a decent amount of time you are golden. It is truly a much more representative form of generating a good idea how your chips are going to run. All the worrying and fretting over prime95 all the time around here and other forums is kind of a waste of hair in my opinion. I don't care if my computer dumps a blue screen after 15 hours of 100% duty on a program I would never use but only once every 2 years or so, I would dump something blue also if I had to do that. You don't want to be pushing that many watts through any piece of electronics that long without a break.
I personally want my system to be as manly as possible.
I won't let my CPU to rest. I make it work as much as it can possibly be.
And lots of people do folding 24/7.
