Prime95 custom test shortcuts [SOLVED]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question. As a preface, you are about to see the laziness that ensues after being up 48ish+? hours trying to tweak my 2700k OC , so please be gentle: sleep deprivation = getting annoyed at anything more than 15 keystrokes... anyways... the question:

Are there command line switches to set the min/max fft/allocated memory/minutes to run worker? I want to create three shortcuts; 1344, 1792 FFT for my quick tests, and a blend with 80% RAM allocated. Thanks, you would be making my life 2 seconds simpler. thumb.gif

PS: If you can see workers of prime shifting to the next test when you look at a white wall, it is time to take a break sleepysmiley03.gif


EDIT:

Found what I was looking for in undoc.txt, you can set everything I was asking via the prime.txt file, I'll just make a few different prime folders or do symlinks to a new location with the separate config files. Here is the relevant sections in undoc.txt for those of you who aren't fans of lurking through documentation wink.gif

You can control which FFT sizes are tested by the torture test. In prime.txt
you can set:
MinTortureFFT=n
MaxTortureFFT=m
Where n and m are in "K". The default for n and m is 8 and 1024 which will
run tests on FFT sizes rom 8K to 1024K. Set n to 8 and m to 16 and you will
run only small FFT sizes. These FFTs will fit in the L2 cache and may be
more stressful to the CPU.

You can control how many minutes each FFT size is tested by the torture test.
In prime.txt set:
TortureTime=n
The default value is 15 minutes.

You can control how much memory the torture test uses. In prime.txt set:
TortureMem=n
The default value is the larger of your daytime and nighttime memory settings.
If this is set to 8MB or less, then the torture test does FFTs in-place. This
may be more stressful but could miss memory errors that only occur at a
specific physical address.

Don't be like me and assume the torture test box will magically appear filled in with the values, they are set in the config. Thanks samwiches:

What's not working? I have separate folders with Primes in them so they can use their own prime.txt configs. They work. Just set prime.txt to read-only, and ignore the default looking input boxes when you first load, just click OK.

Ignore this, haven't quite got it working yet. If I do, I'll update.

This is what your prime.txt files should look like (CHANGE RAM ACCORDINGLY!):

1344k
Code:
MinTortureFFT=1344
MaxTortureFFT=1344
TortureMem=5500
TortureTime=1
V24OptionsConverted=1
StressTester=1
UsePrimenet=0

1792k
Code:
MinTortureFFT=1792
MaxTortureFFT=1792
TortureMem=5500
TortureTime=1
V24OptionsConverted=1
StressTester=1
UsePrimenet=0

Blend with 80% of RAM
Code:
MinTortureFFT=8
MaxTortureFFT=4096
TortureMem=6535
TortureTime=15
V24OptionsConverted=1
StressTester=1
UsePrimenet=0

Oh! Derp, it has been working all along smile.gif. I was waiting for the torture test box to magically appear with everything filled in, never actually started a test to look at the FFT size.... lol
