Linx Crashing PC, Intel Burn Test and Prime95 Do Fine?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN! I have been having a lot of problems lately with battlefield 3 and my SLI configuration lately which are described in excruciating detail HERE (btw if anyone helps me with that i would be SUPER HAPPY and +rep). Since i have been having these problems i have been messing around with benchmarking and stability testing etc. I have been doing tests on my CPU today and notice that 5 runs of Intel Burn test come back clean, 9 and a half hours of prime 95 came back clean, but 15 seconds into Linx and i get a crash. I have attached pics of the settings i am using in intel burn test and linx. It is also worthy to note that this behavior is occurring both when i am overclocked and when i am at stock. I have also attached a picture of the error i am getting in event viewer, as I am not actually getting a blue screen. my computer simply freezes, and i have to press my reset button.

Before this i never had any problems with anything processor or memory wise. This just started happening randomly. Build is less than a year old.

Any ideas are welcome! Thanks!

That's odd, because LinX and IBT are supposed to be pretty much the same thing.

Exactly. I have no idea why this is happening. And it makes no sense. Would i be getting an actual blue screen if it was processor or memory related? because the nature of the error i am getting leads me to believe that it might be my PSU

Because intel burn test is way more demanding than prime 95. It does what prime does in 24 hours in a few minutes. It is also highly demanding in the amount of wattage it uses. your PSU may not be able to supply enough power to the whole pc and your OCed CPU. When i look at my wattage use it is so much higher in IBT than prime95.

His PSU is plenty for his rig, even OC'd. Unless it's faulty.

I'd try downloading another copy of IBT from another source, just in case it's a bad copy.
If that does the same thing, then try a selection of other tests.
If you get continued troubles, then RMA both the PSU and the motherboard.

+rep and thanks for the reply!! How do you check your wattage by the way? U have an external piece of hardware for that? Also this is happening when i am at stock as well. Not just when i am OCed

9.5 hours of prime blend?

And did prime complete a full loop? (come back to the very first test you ran)

That's funny, because I have been in situations where I've passed LinX for 12 hours + and failed Prime95 in minutes.

IBT does not do what Prime does in minutes. Did you write the programs?

Prime stresses different parts of the cache, cpu, and ram. You want Prime to run though all blend tests because some instructions sets don't touch ram and only jump back between cache and cpu, others jump from cpu to cache to ram, etc. IBT runs the same test over and over and over. It's good to test cooling. But if you like running IBT over and over, then go ahead. But games and computations change constantly.

BTW, IBT and Linx are the same thing. Just like orthos and prime95 are the same thing. The "engine" is the same.

I run 10 hour prime95 blend and if that passes, then it is good.
