Prime95 question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've tried running Prime95 at 4.5GHZ (Both Blend and Large FTT), both times I set it and forget it. Both times I have come back and it appears that the computer has restarted (Prime95 has disappeared). I ran a Blend at 4.3GHZ for 8 hours and this did not happen. One of the times I checked back about 2 hours later and it was still going. Also want to mention even after 2 hours of Large FTT the temperatures were only around 50C.

If 4.5 is unstable and the computer BSOD'd, wouldn't it just shut off, not restart? Or is it possible that it's restarting after failing?

Thanks

hmm...when mine BSOD's, i think it has restarted every single time. i hate to speak in absolutes, but i can't remember a time my computer BSOD'd and did not restart, so i would say that's probably what happened to yours...

Hmmm... interesting. It seems to me after I see it BSOD it hangs for awhile and then shuts off... and then I just turn it back on. Maybe I'm not waiting long enough and it'd restart on its own?

Bummer. I can't wait around and watch the thing for hours at a time frown.gif Why isn't there a performance log lol.

there is a performance log. tbh, i have no idea where it's at, i've never used it smile.gif But yeah, it stores all the information it gained from your test so you can check the error numbers and determine what the problem with your OC was.

To stop the pc from restarting do this so you can see the bsod message:
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/ht/automatic-restart-windows-7.htm
Also the program BlueScreenView from NirSoft can be used to view info about the bsod/crash
