Never saw the reply to the whining sound
How long to run the 1344 FFT
post #52 of 69
run it for 15-20mins, then run 1792x1792 for same amount of time. If you can do both, you should be good to pass a 12hour p95 blend.

I wrote that before I saw the message about the whining sound, thank you for that information by the way
How long should I run the 1344 FFT, I've ran it for 25 mins now is that enough?
To start with it was doing 2 tests per minute now only one
post #54 of 69
yes 25 mins should be enough.

Your P95 should look like this:

Custom, 1792 - 1792, RAM - 2500MB (If using 4GB), 1 min cycles for each test. Do that for 20 mins, and report back.

quick tip also, i have realtemp 3.60 andcpu-z open at the side of p95 so that I can monitor temps and voltage drops during testing, might be worth getting those downloaded too!

Yh I have coretemp, cpu-z and hw monitor up already to do them
Thanks for your help, I'll let you know how it goes after 1792 run

good stuff, also dont forget to note down all your bios settings and any changes you make, makes it hell of a lot easier to record your results that way as apposed to guessing when your pc crashes!

You don't understand how many post-it notes are scattered all over my desk, fully covered in BIOS setting and oc's varying from 4-4.7ghz, all unstable unfortunately, even at high volts it just seems to be unstable
I've been trying for quite a while now which is why I'm kind of annoyed by it now I'd be happy with 4ghz

Have you tried re-flashing the motherboard's bios, or perhaps updating it?

It could be something wrong with the motherboard as well.
