recent p95 with avx? avx was introduced 2012 with v27.2
and what is stable IS a matter of opinion. some people dont care if they can pass ~17 hours of p95 as long as they never crash while playing derpaderp. that shows you right there stable is an opinion based on what the pc is used for and is stable at doing that.
first mistake would be using only small and/or large fft not blend. blend runns different/more test than using small then large or large then small fft.
~17 hours to run all 82 fft sizes at default 15 test time. ~14 hours to run 10 minute time. no reason to run 24 hours. if you run 24 you may as well run another 10 hours to say you ran 2 full loops and you really should be using 90% of available ram or it doesnt mean much.
unbelievable but yeah, more vcore to run sli. i was totally stable for a year and needed .010v more to be stable after adding my 2nd 670.

system stability is still really nothing more than being stable while doing what you do. if there is nothing critical to you or the world on your drive and all you do is game, install windows and all updates and EVERYTHING else at stock settings. find a 'stable' overclock. play your games. system and program files stay non-corrupted and your processor is screaming fast to play. some people call that stable.
btw, did you know stressing and failing corrupts your os in most cases? you still need to reinstall your os after you find your stable oc. then you really should be stressing again to make sure it doesnt fail on a clean system wink.gif

Stable:"not likely to give way or overturn; firmly fixed." "not deteriorating in health after an injury or operation." "not likely to change or fail; firmly established." Definitions taken from Google.
Stable is the fact that your system doesn't crash. Doesn't matter how you test it. If it crashes, it isn't stable. A PC crashing once a month or once a day is not stable. It isn't subjective, but objective. Definitions attached- I don't need to say more about that.

Blend uses small and large FFTs at various intervals. Both being for different things. So running small FFT will help you determine one problem over the other. Blend is just universal.

Stress testing corrupting OSs? lol nop never heard and find that utter crap haha

that first bit is exactly what i said so thanks for repeating it.
second part there, go run a full cycle of small and then large fft's and count them.
third part there, i guess you shouldve studied a bit more. it will corrupt it. i thought everyone knew that.

im also not going to argue with you. its pointless trying to tell you anything when you think you know the answer. remember how long it took you to understand what i was telling you about overclocking your 680? you didnt believe me until everyone came in and told you the same thing. you still had to double triple check for yourself to see if what everyone told you was true.

i wont respond to anything else you have to say on the matter.

Don't even fret man. Find something else to do like reviving and med pack dumping or ammo dropping. Some games I don't even look for enemies, just making sure my 4 squad mates are A-OK. thumb.gif

Feel free to add me and we'll have a good time, I promise.

There is some merit to this.
If you simply get WHEA19 errors the OS shouldn't corrupt as the CPU is identifying the issues and fixing them.
However if you continually BSOD the processes in memory can be damaged which given enough time can lead to file corruption.

It really depends on how hard you are stressing the system. Overclocking the memory is more likely to lead to file corruption because the system generally hard locks or resets losing data, sometimes during a write which would leave an incomplete file. The OS can normally recover, but if you do it 10 times in a row in a short span you could easily corrupt a file.

I've had two instances after a long duration where I had file corruption from a Memory clock that was just a hair unstable. A simple refresh of the OS fixed everything, no need for a full re-install.

Yeah I just re installed Windows after settling all my OC values and that helped... for a while. Thinking I will have to start all over and use Prime to find a starting place for CPU/Mem OC. And use BF4 as my "true" test with one component at a time mad.gif
Guess if it was easy everyone would do it...

It's more your manner and way of speaking to members as if the're all "below you" that bothered me (and others even in this very thread)
Heck even others in the thread of me OCing my 680 at the time pointed it out. One even via PM. thumb.gif
The way you reply to people, is exactly how you should be expected to get replies back.

Sure I agree with that, constant BSODs could cause corruption - but if you know what you;'re doing, or at least follow guides, you shouldn't ever be in that position.
As for a "re-install fixed everything" - I have more beliefs that it was something completely unrelated to that, which was making you unstable.

Yeah after awhile I ended up just following squad mates around and dropping packs. Or repairing choppers. Or being gunnar in ships. That's where a big bulk of the deaths but low kills come from. After seeing not getting many kills, I sort of just switched to support mode and not worry too much about trying to kill.

My aiming could also stem from upgrading my monitor. I was on a 1050p monitor and recently upgraded to a 27" 1440p monitor. It's quite a drastic change for me.

So true.

It def helps to be polite. I is working on being less snarky, sarcastic, rude, etc. It hard. tongue.gif

edit: Yeah, monitor plays a big part in SOME, NOT ALL FOLK'S gaming experience. For me, and this is just me, gaming on a 144hz monitor is impossible without Lightboost. Honestly, I feel like I have super powers. Maybe I should start a clan called "True Gamers?" No IPS users allowed. Hah! Kidding! tongue.gif

You make me laugh TD guitar.gif I know what I am doing, and it happened to me, granted it happened in the long term. upsidedwnsmiley.gif

But anywho getting too much off topic.

I got a little play time in on NS today. Maps are a whole lot of fun thumb.gif
