How to test if something wrong with my CPU

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I think my clock may have been unstable, when i ran i7-3770k for for a while at 4.8.... I've been getting some funky things happening with my pc, (freezes, stuttering in game like 5 fps for a brief moment) I'm on my computer all day and this happens like once a day. Anyways would like to test the CPU to see if its causing the problem.

Incase, anyone is wondering I am now running the CPU @ 4.6 GHz at a whopping 1.36v (anyone else think this is a little high?) and I'm still getting BSOD's w/ code 124 and 3B

is there anyway to test see if my cpu is still healthy

both errors indicate you have to up vcore smile.gif
i would up it a notch and see if it helps,
rerun some stability tets, ibt/prime..

how did you test stability back then?
youre doing your oc's in the bios? or with software..
did you oc your gpu's too..

your vcore looks a bit high, i can run 4.7ghz at about 1.3-1.305V vcore..

Yes I know I have already up'd the vcore a lot I thought 1.36 was already high just for 4.6GHz..... or am I wrong? is this normal voltage for that clock on a 3770k ?

I just ran prime95 for about an hour, some say thats fine to test for "normal use" but i play cpu intensive games all day and render multiple videos a day.... wondering if I shoulda tested longer.

So the only way to test if my cpu is healthy is to run p95 for like 14+ hours? What if (atm) I don't want to test if its stable is there something i can do real quick just to see if its healthy, as in if there is anything immediately wrong with the CPU.

not really, ibt is a quick one to use, but watch your temps if you do, 20-30 runs on very high, or maximum will do..
yea, to be honest, your vcore is a bit high, but every chip is different, so its hard to say,
mine is a average ocer, there worse, and better see smile.gif

they are right if they say to use prime for 1H or 2 H, for a quick impression if the oc is stable,
but to make sure youre stable, you should run it longer, then 12H at least is the better one,
but i wouldnt only use 1 program to test stability, i use IBT first, its quick, if it runs ok, i go run prime,
if that checks out, i just go play games like BF3, because it loads the cpu different, 35-45% on mine,
the other programs only use 100% load, thats why you can still fail when you use your computer normal,
there not 1 program that can ensure you are 100% stable...but the combination of stability tests sure makes its better

i took this info from anandtech forum,

LinX (Intel burntest) is superior to Prime95 small FFT for determining CPU core logic stability.
Must run with the IBT thread count set equal to the physical core count of the CPU.
HT slows it down and reduces the ability to determine stability. Set to 4 threads on a 2600K.
Set memory to "All".
Stability Criterion: Must pass 5 cycles minimum, passing 20 cycles is preferred (considered gold standard)

Prime95 large FFT is superior to LinX for determining L3/IMC stability.
Must use large FFT, blend is insufficient. <- reports indicate this is false for AMD stability tests
HT is ok for this test.
Stability Criterion: Must pass 2 hours minimum, passing 12 hours is preferred (considered gold standard)

HCI memtest is superior to LinX, Prime (large or small), and memtest86+ for determining memory stability.
Launch one instance per thread supported by CPU (8 instances of HCI memtest for 2600K)
Set each HCI instance to use an appropriate fraction of the memory...16GB on a 2600K means each HCI instance (there will be 8 instances) are to use 2048 MB.
Stability Criterion: Must pass 200% coverage minimum, passing 1000% coverage is preferred (considered gold standard)

OCCT GPU test w/error checking enabled is superior to Kombustor for determining GPU stability. (updated link to OCCT 4.0.0, thanks NoobyDoo!)
Error checking MUST be enabled by the user (check the box), otherwise you are leaving it up to your eyes to detect visual artifacts which renders the test entirely subjective.
Stability Criterion: Must pass 20 minutes minimum, passing 1 hour is preferred (considered gold standard)
