AMD Ryzen Motherboard Thread - Page 291

post #2901 of 3270
So people are recommending AGAINST Prime95 again? Could this be why I am seeing erratic voltage numbers under load? I will investigate because I can't reach stable 4GHz w/ Prime 95 unless I am at 1,435v.

Prime95 was never good for AMD platform despite all offsets etc. I always preferred AOD or OCCT. First one because it was more appropriate and second for adjustability and more details.
post #2903 of 3270
from what i read, prime95 is stressing parts that are normally not under load no matter the circumstance.
this means it pushes the chip's load over it's intended design, and furthermore messes up the power delivery within the circuit.

in other words, prime95 is literally acting like a power-virus.

I'm gonna start using OCCT then. Previously, I used IBT/Linpack but my issue isn't heat it's stability.

Did you adjust soc/nb ? At default prime would crap out a thread at a time.

It's a stress test. We have members who run them for long periods. 24 hour prime custom . Hard to argue about stability .

If the stability test works for you, go with it. Prime finds stability issues faster for me. If someone damages their silicon running it I suspect they dialed it up to 11 without doing proper testing at lower clocks/voltages first. Impatience is the problem

So general consensuses is you test with OCCT?
post #2907 of 3270
OCCT is pretty weak. You can test it for hours only to encounter a black screen when encoding.

X264 Stability Test used by Intel folks is even faster to force a black screen than OCCT. Even Realbench is faster.
post #2908 of 3270
The recent version of OCCT claims to have augmented their stress testing

Guys what would you do get a pretty good board most likely a gigabyte k7 and a 1600, Or get a 1700 with a cheaper board most likely tomahawk? Im on a strict tight budget cant have both worlds lol..

Kinda leaning on the 1600 and k7 cause it probably have best support for future cpus.. but idk...

1700 all day or wait it out and save up some more and get a x370. That MSI board is fine though. Just don't expect to ever go SLI.

Here's a 1700x on sale for $320. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-AMD-RYZEN-7-1700X-8-Core-3-4-GHz-AM4-Skt-95W-YD170XBCAEWOF-Desktop-CPU-/262900101141?hash=item3d36113015:g:T9YAAOSwzgBYzQ5C
