intel burn test

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi

I am using intel burn test. I did 10 times with 50 % of the available memory and now 5 times with 75 % of the memory tested. Is this enough?

Yes...it should be fine, ppl will say no though. If you really want to strain the cpu and ram, run it at least 20 times @ max ram and 8 threads. Try to keep the temps below 85C.

Prime 95 is a better tool for finding unstable overclocks imo

As Sean mentioned, you should be fine; with that said though, him and I both know that there are countless examples (even within this one forum) of system instability after the limited testing you've done so far.

This is probably one of those things where it depends.

My experience was the other way around. I was seemingly stable for over a year (including numerous hours of Prime 95, at least twice overnight and then some, plus hundreds of gaming hours), but apparently it wasn't totally stable, as it crashed during, of all things, The Sims 3 one day. I asked around, someone suspected the CPU, and had me try Intel Burn Test, which I heard of but never used. That caught instability in minutes. I use it primarily now, and will use Prime 95 during longer tests and as a secondary/alternate option.

I usually run it for 15-20 minutes straight. By the sound of it though, you should be fine.

In some ways yes, Prime95 puts a constant load on your CPU and can find problems Linpack won't. Linpacks short pauses makes the CPU clock down again and usually provokes errors faster than what Prime95 does in my experience.

The best stability test is running the computer for a while and see if you get crashes. Prime95 and Linpack are good at detecting load errors, but idle-bugs can be alot more difficult to provoke.

Harpsi,

I can see that this is quickly going to devolve into bickering about the minutiae of stability; I'll save you the time:

1. 12hrs. Prime95 blend
2. 50 runs of IntelBurnTest/LinX utilizing the AVX library

Edit - Just for the sake of clarity...these aren't ran at the same time, but entirely separate. If you're able to successfully pass both, then consider your setup (excluding the GPU) fully vetted.

I oc'd my athlon x2 250 to 3.75ghz and tested it with intel burn in test and it was successful on maximum stress level...its awesome

I do 20 passes of IBT with ALL RAM tested at maximum. But, I still experienced 000x124 BSODs after when using Firefox, 2 as a matter of fact. Now, I am 99% stable. Those stability tests do not mean a 100% stable system, they just mean that your system is more or less stable for extreme CPU usage.

Actually they are quite accurate..ok you maybe experiencing random restarts due to other factors including low vcore voltage which may happen at anytime,or even by high temps which causes your processor to heat up and as such it begins to gurgle. As you know electricity flows better through cold wires than heated up hot ones,its the same for the processor. It may not happen when its on 100% load but even while performing normal tasks. Another reason may be with regard to your ram if you have overclocked it. Yes the error your getting is one which is generated by your processor,namely the overclock. Try raising the vcore voltage and the cpu nb frequency.
