WHEA errors (Internal parity error) Do we care?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My 3770k is 24 hr prime95 stable, IBT stable, and has been folding successfully for a couple weeks now. I opened my windows event viewer and noticed WHEA-Logger warnings:
Code:
A corrected hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Corrected Machine Check
Error Type: Internal parity error
Processor ID: 7

The details view of this entry contains further information.

I see ~9 hours of folding with no errors and then about 1 warning an hour for 6 hours. No pattern to the affected cores.

I have never heard of these before. I did some googling but I'm still not sure if us overclockers should care?

It appears that on Ivy chips it is an indicator of partial instability (i.e. not enough to crash, but enough to cause errors). Bumping the Vcore normally makes them go away, so you can try that. We should probably care though, yes.

There's a thread about it here:
