How long to let Orthos run? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
That seems like pretty bad advice... even though you are not having problems at the moment, you could well do in the future if your running at 80c or something.

you dont need to do an orthos test to realise you're in trouble if your CPU is that high

That's not true. OS are intelligent enough to distribute workload and clock cycles. Running Orthos and something else should not crash your system. Orthos does not require 100% of the CPU and anything else would make it go over. Orthos will just try to use as many free clock cycles as possible and the OS provides them if possible.

Time division multiplexing right? Just learnt the term in computing classes!

I slept through my OS Design class. I just remember something vaguely about Dining Philosphers and A Busy Barber...

I've had dual instances of Orthos fail after 8.75 hours (you can imagine how pleased I was about that).

Once you've found an OC you want to keep your system stable at I would recommend running Orthos for at least 12 hours (does your computer really have anything better to do?).

While searching for the right OC I'll run Orthos for about an hour, if it passes I'll bump up the FSB a little more. But once I'm happy with where I'm at, I'll run Orthos for 12h+.

Play games, surf the net, burn a DVD.....do what ever you want while Orthos is running. Don't tiptoe around your computer, if it's stable it's stable, if it's not Orthos will fail no matter what your doing on you computer.

I can't understand though how i ran Prime95 on both cores for like 12 and a bit hours without fail, and then i run Orthos for 5minutes and it throws up an error.
