You guys have asked me, WELL here it is. GOLDEN 2500K - Page 9

post #81 of 147
Personally, I think it's silly to stress a chip for 20+hours. What is that proving? I've read where tests have failed at 20 hours. I have to agree that it's just needlessly stressing the rig. I run 2+ hours of prime and OCCT linpack. When my rig(s) have passed that, I usually never have a problem gaming, rendering video or even virus scanning.

More power to the guys that want to spend hours and hours punishing their rig. I hope it gives them piece of mind. Me, I'd rather be playing a game and stressing it that way thumb.gif

Well obviously we dont stress test for 20 hours for the fun of it..its to test for stability. Clues in the name. FYI gaming is a crap stress test, sooner or later you will get a BSOD.

Exactly bud. If it passes a few hours of various test and doesn't fail, your pretty good. Then it runs for 3years with no issues still, seems very stable to me. Hell, not 1 of the i7 920 C0's that I pushed to there max of around 3.8ghz have came back or started showing signs of instability yet.

With SB, things were a little different and we all started liking the Offset way of overclocking and I did too, but there's a lot of issues with the voltage jumping around and getting lockups and idle bsod's. That's why I've changed my method of overclocking SB and it's working out a lot better. I don't use offset anymore, I use manual and still have the cpu drop speed but volts stay the same. My idle temps are lowering to the same as using offset as I have the C3 and C6 states ENABLED now and not on auto. Speedstep is enabled and C1e can be set to auto or disabled and things work very well. you will also notice how the cores are all sitting at the same temp instead of being 3-8c different.

I know a lot of you wanted to know the different way I was doing things with SB and have asked me a bunch. I just wanted to see for a few months that I wasn't going in the wrong direction, but things are working way better like this for me and a bunch of pc's I've built in the past couple months. Gaming seems to be smoother this way also with not having any issue due to the cpu voltage dropping during gaming.

Stability to run what may I ask? I used to stress my rig far longer only to start a game and see a BSOD. Unless you're folding I can't think of any program that will stress your rig more than the items that I listed... gaming, rendering video or virus scanning. You don't compute on a benchmark

I stand by what I said and it's due to (my) experience. I don't slam anyone else for their belief that hours and hours of stress-testing makes for a more stable rig. I have not had a BSOD in years from using my rig in normal, everyday use (i.e. gaming, video, virus scanning) aside from overclocking of course. I have (2) X58 rigs running 920 and 960 i7 processors (4.2ghz ea.) and a SB i5 2500k running at 4.9ghz (1.355v BIOS)

Good deal! That's how I am overclocking my i5, with manual volts. I may try the offset but at my current OC of 4.9ghz and Vcore (1.355v) I don't see that as being too high to run 24/7

Nice chip BTW thumb.gif

I hope you changed the other voltages that are needed too and raised the current capability so let you do it tongue.gif
