Prime 95 Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I always run large FFT (two instances) with no trouble. Today I tried two instances of blends and I get no CPU load over 5% on either core and the tests just drag. Anyone else have this problem?

Why does anyone bother with prime95 anymore?

When sp2004 came out...it totally got rid of any reason to use prime95...

Now Orthos is out, and it's sp2004 for multi-core (automatically).

Delete prime95, and download orthos.

It's the same thing as prime 95, but it's got a slick GUI, and does multi-core without changing anything.

TheDuke,

The OC is pretty good. 315 FSB is totally stable. I think my low budget Ultra RAM is a likely culprit. I would have liked to make 333 FSB, but I don't have the cooling for the vcore I would need. I added a 7600GTyesterday for 100 bucks (no rebate), and that made a world of difference in my grafics. I'm still shocked at the difference from my x1300. I'm just gonna enjoy things the way they are right now. No doubt I will try for 3 GHZ again.

Did you get your 6100-939 build going?

I'm working on a fan rig for the N Bridge on the 6100-939 I have
It's now in a case and I need to dig up a HDD for it to get OCing and Folding!
So much stuff going on, my only relaxing time is when I'm in here
