Intel Core I7 2600K - BSOD after 1 month of stability - Page 5

post #41 of 53
as far as games are concerned, bad company 2 is about as stressful on cpu as any game out there, its a pretty good stability test.

that said, 1 month of bad company 2 could be a couple of hours of gameplay, or it could be 100, makes a big difference

100 hours straight of bad company 2 without a bsod is a pretty good indication of stability

I only test my chip for no more than 4 hours. After that is a waste of time. At least for me.
Thats because i use my rig only for random gaming and stuff. And i don't think is necessary to run blend for endless hours just to prove is stable.
But if you use it for work or you have an OCD and you need 100% stability thats OK.
But back to topic.

Maybe you should play with another voltages in BIOS before touching the Vcore, you should try lowering the timings or even the frequency of the mem.

Another game that is CPU demanding is GTA IV. It has peaks of 98 CPU usage @ 4.7

If your playing a game that is CPU intensive, doesn't it make sense to stablize the overclock first, even if it takes a few more hours of priming?

gta iv and bad company 2 are the most stressful on cpu that I know, gta iv shows about 60 watts being drawn, bad company 2 draws about 65 watts, where as prime 95 draws about 90 or so watts

If that's the case, isn't it a better idea to run prime just a little longer? I mean, if your not going to be gaming on such games then yeah you could get away with 2/3 hours priming but in the long run your likely to face issues just like the OP is facing.

If your gonna be playing CPU intensive games or any games for that matter, stablise your overclock first. If you do 1/2 hours of prime blend and can game for 8 hours straight with no problems day in day out then awesome good for you, but I really doubt that, especially on a cpu intensive game. Either run Prime for 6+ hours plus, 12hrs even better or try running IBT/LinX with AVX and updated linkpack with 40/50 runs and you should be good to go.

I prefer to stay away of IBT/LinX, generate to much heat under unreal condition. Probably Munaim1 is right. If blend fails after 20 seconds then you have a problem, but i think that there is a point when i think there is no diff between failing at 6 or 8 hours.

But the thing is that is not only that, probaly you will spend a whole day of priming. To test your OC.

1° run, fails after 4 hours, re calibrate vcore.
2 ° run, fails after 6 hours, re calibrate vcore.
3° run succesful pass 8 hours.

Time spended 18 hours. I repeat if you need complete stability thats fine. And necessary.
But i simply refuses to run prime95 hours and hours, adjusting voltages to reach a certain point.
But thats it's just me. If i reach 6 hours fine, but i conform with 4.

your right I personally don't like using LinX/IBT because of the heat it generates.

4 hours is cool like I said but if you complain that your bsoding after a month then that 4 hours doesn't look that good does it. Im sure you get what im trying to say, each to their own when it comes to stress testing, prime it however long is good enough for you or for what ever your using it for, but when it's not good enough you should maybe try stress testing longer.

Agreed.
Maybe i leave blend running tonight to see where i can get.

this is my little target 'thing' I use for stability.



Prime 1-3hrs, think your stable, play a CPU intensive game = BSOD= FAIL

Prime 1-3hrs, think your stable, play a CPU intensive game = happy gaming for hours = EPIC WIN but very doubtful.

Prime 4-6hours, think your stable enough - play CPU intensive game = maybe happy gaming again for a couple hours then = BSOD = FAIL

Prime 6-8hours, think your stable enough - play CPU intensive game = hapy gaming for hours but a small chance you might BSOD = NOT FAIL but not ideal ( you might crash 1 out of 30 games of bfbc2).

Prime 12hrs+, should be stable - play CPU intensive game = happy gaming and a whole lot more and a VERY small chance of BSOD = For ME that's an EPIC WIN

Don't take a chance, especially when your doing awesome on bfbc2 and suddenly bsod, that's a fail on your part if you run 1-3 hours prime blend

To be as close to 100% stability try running a little longer in the end it's all about stability. I wanna be able to run fraps aswell or do some encoding in the background if I want to, that's how stable I would like my rig to be, it's not just the plessure of gaming aswell you know!!!



Some may not agree with me but each to their own, I don't think you'll find me posting a thread anytime soon regard bsoding lol well not on LOAD that it is. lol

Prime is just totally useless to me honestly. My theory is, run IBT 20 times and if it passes max, its stable. Then, if I do get a BSOD later, just up VCORE a bit (if its x101 or x124) and move on with life. Not that big of a deal to me and I avoid having to spend an entire weekend stressing and degrading my chip...
