Overclocked 3770k but not on turbo all the time, how to do that? - Page 2

post #11 of 21

The Large FFTs test is almost worthless for Sandy and Ivy Bridge. This is probably why it's not stable. Try the Blend test.

 

Better yet, try the Custom Blend test. That way you can tell Prime95 to use about 90% of your memory.

 

Which version of Prime95 are you using? The only effective versions for Sandy and Ivy Bridge are v27.7 build 2 and 27.9 build 1. These are the only ones that use the AVX instruction set, and that's important.

I use 27.9 build 1 version

Can you tell me the numbers I should be using for Custom Test?

All you really have to do is open Prime95, select Custom, type in about 90% of your memory in the "Memory to use" field and then click OK (or press Enter).

 

Tip:  Press Esc and then Enter to end the test quickly. ;)

I'm just showing you a fast and easy way to stop it. I mean, it's easier than using the mouse. This is also something I discovered accidentally, so I like to tell everyone about it.

OK, I made the testing for more than 18 hours.
Everything seems worked fine, Prime95 didn't crash, CPU-Z and RealTemp either, but i had Win8 warning of low memory to save work and close programs...

I wanted to make a screenshot of these 3 proggies and opened Photoshop, cropped the screenshot and when i hit the save keyboard shortcut Win8 crashed... Probably because I didn't stop the Prime95 workers.

So with this information, what do you say?

I'm not sure, except try Crysis 3 again with C1E enabled. Although, you didn't make any changes, so I doubt it will be any different than last time.

4.5Ghz is a nice balanced overclock, keep in mind that when you push the Vcore past 1.300 that's the point at which the silicon degradation begins. Arguably it won't affect the lifetime of the CPU much as you'll likely upgrade before it dies, however it's worth mentioning.

I'm guessing you're offset overclocking, so make sure you keep an eye on your volts and increase the LLC to compensate for any drooping.
