If you have the money and like the 5-year warranty then it's very good for the price bracket. I'd recommend updating the BIOS as soon as you get it though, as I've been getting a lot of OC errors with the older version.

Thanks for your reply.

Could you please tell me what video card are you using and which Windows version?

I'm trying to find the solution to something that's been bugging me for a while.
In short, I find myself in the situation in which I can't figure out what a "blank screen" during RealBench StressTest means.

The monitor just shuts off and won't come out of that state,(running an nVidia 980ti videocard with latest drivers, namely 368.39 and mainboard BIOS 3101).
I must add that with past drivers and BIOS 2101 situations were alternating between LuxMark giving an error and testing continuing and/or blank screen.
I find it to be independent of overclock settings, be it of the CPU, memory or GPU.
Also, clean installing drivers using DDU, installing only certain components of the drivers package or JUST the drivers doesn't change anything.
Down-clocking the GPU or switching between Adaptive and Performance mode in nVidia Settings also brings no correction to this behavior.

Tried installing a different card (though the same maker & model) and still no change for the better.

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.


P.S.

By blank screen I don't mean a crash that generates an event being recorded in Windows dump files.
It's just that kind of a blank screen that won't go away, keeps the fans (& presumably the load at 100%), thus requiring a soft reset.
Most times soft resetting won't work and the power button has to be used.

P.P.S.

The dreaded "blank screen" may occur after 10,37,85 minutes or 2-3 hours.
I couldn't find a pattern.

Most likely GPU related. I had similar problem with my Fury X playing Fallout4. If I dial back GPU overclock or increase GPU voltage the problem goes away/

I disable my GPUs if I'm just trying to find CPU stability. You can just uncheck them when the stability test starts. Most likely your graphics drivers are crashing and unable to recover. For graphics card testing I use OCCT, Heaven, and the new 3DMark has a stress module apparently.

I was on the quest of finding a voltage sweet spot but having GPU frequencies dialed back on nVidia's stock values is the absolute bottom...is it not?

Also, having every new version of nVidia drivers documenting an unresolved problem with LuxMark is not really helping in this matter.
I would maybe try to find an ATI card at one moment, just for the fun of it. tongue.gif

P.S.

With regards to nVidia only, my intuition points me into a driver-related problem (in Windows 7, though the driver documentation lists LuxMark issues under Windows 10 only).

I was more trying to find out what causes RealBench to give a blank screen (being already 95% inclined to believe it's GPU related problem --- namely drivers) and find a solution.
I went from tweaking the installation method to modifying Windows registry but no good result so far.
As I said earlier, I find it to be completely independent of CPU/GPU & MEMORY frequencies and/or voltages.

You are correct about that though, in older driver versions there would be sometimes a driver crash error, instead of a blank screen.
They "fixed" it now, in 368.39 driver version it's only the blank screen. biggrin.gif

I may be a bit obsessing about this issue but having the following stable:

- 12h+ OCCT LinPack 90% Memory & AVX Enabled
- 12h+ AIDA (everything selected but the local disks)
- 8h+ Prime95 Blend+Furmark simultaneously
- 24h+ Prime95 Blend
- 32h+ HCI Memtest
...alongside many others like Memtest86, Heaven, Valley, Kombustor, Cinebench, 3D Mark, Intel XTU etc. (many of them in combination with Prime95 Blend, Small or Large FFT) for the minimum 8h+
... and having random blank screens in RealBench is....nagging me.poke.gif

In any case, is there any way to disable GPU testing or parts of it in RealBench, maybe in command line mode?
If I could isolate certain GPU tests, I could send my reports to nVidia to maybe aid them in fixing this LuxMark shadow that's been lurking in their drivers.


P.S.

It could also be a conflict between RealBench and various apps running in background, like hwMonitor, Afterburner etc...it's not really unheard of.
I'll have to try testing on a clean Windows install (drivers only).If I find anything relevant I'll come back on this.

Use DDU to completely annihilate any graphic driver then install a stable fresh copy. Sometimes old conflicting driver does cause blank screen too.
post #1398 of 2033
Thinking I may need to update the BIOS on my board, have been getting the 'overclock failed!' error every time I boot up, even after resetting to defaults and having nothing except XMP changed. Anyone had this issue on older versions?

I had that happened a lot in 1801 BIOS. 1901 and 2001 still happen sometime. 3101 now and problem free. Never crushed in 1 month and counting.biggrin.gif

Oh good! I'm on a mid-2xxx bios that came with the MB so I guess I'll update this evening after work, hopefully things go much better!
