1:50pm It sems that Prime95 hanged ("Prime95 Stopped Working"), How do I find out how far into it that it stopped? The Max Temps it hit were 75C

FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
I doubt you need more than 6Gb of RAM. My quadcore has 6gb and even with over 100 processes running & 20 web pages open, while transcoding a video, it peaks at 5Gb used. If you want to add 6Gb more, that's more than enough, so $60 & be done with it. As far as V core, doesn't your board have a setting for offset voltage instead of fixed, or dynamic? Works best here when I offset +.3 volts to stock. Voltage is dynamic & when CPU needs it, it gets up to 1.46 volts, but when not under load, pulls less & creates less heat.
Yeah but I def need more ram, I will look into another 3x2GB I guess... I could go 3 x 4GB
Not Sure maybe Kana knows about the dynamic... Anyone know
? So I will up the Vcore a bit and see if that changes anything.

On my 920 I had to up VRAM and VTT voltages for 6 sticks vs 3. HOWEVER, that was 2000+ Mhz and much more stressful on components than 1600... not to mention on a quad core. @ 1600-1800Mhz the only issues I've see on the 920 is when using larger capacity sticks (4GB+) and 6 of them.
I am assuming here: Given that servers tend to run MUCH more RAM than the average power user (all be it @ 1333Mhz vs 1600+), I think the Xeon's IMC would be much better with driving more (and larger) RAM modules than the 1st gen i7's did. That is an assumption though because I cannont test my x5650 yet
. I have two sets of Ripjaw 1600Mhz (6 sticks of 4GB) and that will be a good test for the hexcore. My 920 looses RAM modules when I try anything more than 1760Mhz no matter what kind of voltages and tweaking I do.
Wait you have extra ram then? 6 x 2 and 6 x 4gb? Shoot me a message I would be interested! :-P
6 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 24 GB of system memory(Note 1)
Dual/3 channel memory architecture
Support for DDR3 2200/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules
Support for non-ECC memory modules
Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules
Does this mean I cant get 8 x 3 gb? Right now my timings are 7-8-7-22Edited by dpoverlord - 3/5/14 at 11:10am
