Need a new CPU stress test.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I been using Intel burn test for a while but it seems so inconsistent. I could run 50 tests and get success and then 5 minutes later run another 10 result test and it comes up negative. 2 days ago my CPU was passing @ 1.38v, yesterday it couldn't pass with less than 1.4v. Today neither of those pass. Is there a better way to check my OC in a short amount of time? I don't want to spend 24 hours in prime95. OCCT is ok but it can act the same way. I'll let it run an hour long test and it passes, then the next day its telling me my CPU is unstable.

On another note, I am running ram 2133mhz ram on my 8150 and it runs without any errors, but does running it on 2133mhz make the CPU need more voltage? Or is that all fine?

Also sometimes during the stressing my monitor turns off but not my PC in general. I cannot tell if this is overheating or not. Watching the temps I see it gets to 58c tops and the max is 61c, unless its off by 3c, in which case I'm overheating.

Another thing. My 8150 idles around 44c these days. I don't have the money for a cooler better than my 212+. Anyway to get it cooling like it used to?

I like to use Heavy Load.

I don't see much people using it, but it seems to work well enough for stability testing. It also lets you stress test multiple things at a time. It has a nice little GUI that lets you select what you want to stress, what you don't, and even how much RAM you want to dedicate to the stress test.

OCCT is my personal favorite. I could get my last 2 chips to pass IBT at much higher clocks but would crash within minutes under OCCT and Prime95. OCCT has a very nice GUI and plenty of monitoring tools so thats why I use it.

If my overclock can pass 4-6 hours of OCCT then its 24/7 stable, at least it has been for me and what I use my computer for which is internet, gaming and light picture work. Ill also do 20 passes on Intel Burn Test just to make sure but OCCT is my go to tester.
