Test for defect Amd 965 BE

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is there any programs that can test CPU for defect? I want to RMA my 965 BE C2 and hopefully to get C3 back. But if they don't find any defect, they will probably send the original back. The reason I want to check for defect is because my computer would just shut down randomly or completely freeze. When it freeze, I can see a few weird pixel colors on the top left corner. I've no idea what is causing the problem.

Thanks guys
George

Is the processor over clocked? If so I would recommend setting everything back to stock and seeing if it still happens. Also have you run stability test such as Prime 95 blend - set your computer so that it doesn't automatically restart with a BSOD and if it does restart check the computer logs to see why it restarted. I would try doing some trouble shooting before doing an RMA

Oh wow! my system restarted under 1 minute of Prime95 blend test. I guess my overclock was done terribly. Now my computer is actually faster than before at 3.7 Ghz . I'm going to test stock speed/stock voltage and hopefully nothing is wrong with it. By the way, does my chip really have no potential at overclocking at all?

Thanks for your advice

Edit: How long should I run Prime95 and how do I know there is defect/error?

Update: Prime95 blend test crashed my computer after 1.5 hours. It is running at stock clock/voltage. Nothing is overclocked in my system. My RAM is set to run at its advertised speed because it runs at lower clock when I installed them. I don't know if that is considered overclock as I am only using the setting given by OCZ to restore its speed. I have ran memtest86+ before this to test out any defects on the ram, but it passed with no errors.

I believe something is wrong with my CPU. Can someone experienced confirm this for me? Thanks!

I have taken a few pictures of the freeze screen. I noticed many weird purplish lines on the bottom right of my screen.

I'm betting that it is the mobo not the cpu.

How do I test the motherboard is faulty? If it is, I want to RMA it.

It's not the mobo or the CPU - that is artefacting, and is a GPU/RAM problem. Reseat the card, reinstall the drivers (download and run the latest ones from the nvidia website, do not use driver sweeper, just select the clean install option from the nvidia setup)

Overnight bootcd of memtest will test your memory good and proper.

Test your cpu in another rig or use another cpu to see if it happens again at stock speeds.

I had the same thing happen on me with that same mobo and it turns out that it was the mobo.

I'm using on-board graphics card right now. So can we narrow down to ram problem?

I just found out that Gigabyte requires SN# for RMA, but my SN# is cut out for rebate so I don't have it anymore.
