X79/Hexacore Owners - What games peg your CPU hard?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am doing an experiment for myself.
I know what my voltage requirement is for Prime95 stability @ 4.8Ghz. I just want to re start my OC using only gaming as a stress test. I know it's weird, whatever.

So what games are very heavy on the CPU?
Bonus points for games that have caused Prime95 stable OC's to BSOD!

I know that after 48 hours of P95 about 3 months ago can cause my CPU to be stable at stock speeds, but I go ahead and restart just once and every game crashes within 3 minutes of opening it and usually caused a BSOD. tongue.gif I just had to restart my computer 2-3 times without launching a game to get it working properly. Then again, I have a first gen Intel i5 and a OEM ASUS MB.

Farcry 3 worked my 980X really hard, I got a few bluescreens running at 4.8 with Tri Sli 680s that stopped once I back the CPU back to 4.4.

Only thing that has caused a BSOD on a prime stable (36 hour run) was folding...I've never had a game fail an OC.

As for CPU intensive, Crysis and GTA

Ever since I folded on my EmuPAD in the Chimp Challenge this past March it hasn't been able to run DeSmuMe games, LOL, I guess it was a pretty bad idea though.
