Yup looks good, what are your temperatures?

Also, have you ran Prime95 for 2 hours+? It might not be as stable as you think, a good stresses is also F@H

I have a 212+ and temps are between 32c-35c idle. I haven't run any stress tests yet though.

Please run the tests AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

If you are not stable, then it will obviously crash, and might corrupt files and awfull things can happen

Alright, I just started to run Prime95 and temps aren't exceeding 65c. I'm still running it. wink.gif

Just because temps don't exceed 65C doesn't mean its stable. You'll want to at least do a good 4-6 hours on Prime95 to check for good stability.

I'd also suggest using IBT (Intel Burn Test) before doing a long P95 run in order to test for short term stability, i.e. if your voltages seem to be proper enough and whatnot. Then run P95 for a while to test for full stability if your voltages and temps allow you to pass IBT.

Will do, thanks for the tips. thumb.gif
