SP2004 freezing on E6600 setup

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

im having a problem with running 2 instances of SP2004 (v0.40.95.13)

i will start SP2004 up (2 of them) and put core 0 on one, core 1 on the other..
what happens is that one of them will run fine the whole time (ive run it as long as 9-10 w/ no errors) while the 2nd one will stop responding at a variable time..sometimes after 1 hour or 6 or anything inbetween..

my system seems to be running stable, and games arnt a problem either.. so im not sure what the cause or fix is

ive attached my cpu-z screenshots. the memory is set to SPD in bios.. although i think i can lower the timings a bit
and i can post all my voltages in necessary
mem is @ 2.1v

any advice is appreciated.
thanks

This issue could be related to that fact that one of the cores is not receiving the correct amount of voltage to maintain the required clock speed, however the other core is. Take appropriate action to fix this issue if this is indeed the problem.

Suggestion: See if this happens with Orthos.

ok i am going to try the orthos edition as i get some sleep

another forum suggested upping vcore as well; i will try that if orthos freezes

The requirement for more CPU Voltage is often the prime candidate for the failure of Prime95.

I do suggest you slightly increase CPU Voltage to ascertain whether this is the cause of the problem, or not.

Stress prime and Orthos place a much harder, and more sustained stress on your system than any game. If it errors in Stress Prime, then it's not stable unfortunately.

Out of curiosity, what are your current settings? As Manual stated, more vCore will stabilize most errors, but you don't want to go too high on it.

ok yay.. i bumped the vcore up to 1.45 in AI Booster while cpu-z shows it at 1.42v. i was able to run orthos for 15 hours w/o an error now.

there was one thing im not sure about..i went under the sensors button, and unchecked MBM (which i didnt do before this test) because i dont use MBM..maybe that was causing the freeze up??

but anyways, i guess that means im stable right? 8D
core temp reading was 55C on both cores at 100% usage.. thats within the acceptable range?

That's AT the acceptable maximum......and those volts are a little high for air cooling and with those temps it's not great, but it's not terrible.

On air you generally want to stay under 1.4v and below 55c load, especially for 24/7 operation and if you want the CPU to last more than 18 months.

ok, i tried orthos again @ 1.4v and made sure to uncheck the mbm sensor again, and it ran w/o errors for 9 hours.

so i guess it was that mbm sensor thing that was causing the the program to freeze.. good to know

time to overclock a little more 8)
