Orthos Freezing on Test

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am having trouble with performing long lasting tests with Orthos. After some time running flawlessly but then the system freezes up. some times this happens 2hr 39 minutes after the test started and sometimes 1hr 11 minutes after. I tried it with different CPU and memory settings and the outcome is always the same. It freezes. I am running :

3.3GHz with 1.35V core voltage
1067 MHz Memory (stock speed) with 2.1V (stock voltage)
Load Temps change between 51°c and 56°c

Does this freezing problem constitute that I have instability on my system or it is simply a bug on Orthos? I am running Vista Business x64 edition.

Thanks,
My System

I would recommend 1.4V vcore, but that would probably push you over the 60°C threshold. Try slowly increasing the vcore and see if it lengthens the time it takes orthos to fail.

is there any guesstimate of how much voltage needed to compensate for increasing CPU FSB? like X voltage increase for each Y amount of increase on FSB?

Thanks,

It varies from chip to chip, some chips require more volts than others for the same clock speeds. You just have to see what your chip likes to remain stable. Also, there will be a point at which the required voltages skyrocket just to get that extra 50 or 100MHz. That's the point of diminishing returns, and you'll have reached your chip's upper limits.

Thank you for the answer. Would you please share your FSBa and voltages with me? I see that you also are running an E6600. Also, any ideas that the maximum voltage tolerance of an E6600?

Thanks,
My System

Right now I'm at work, so I can't give exact values. However, I've set 1.5250v in the bios, hovering just north of 1.4v on load after vdroop. Temps are in the low 50s I *think*, as I'm not home to check. I've got orthos running all day today, so hopefully its still running stable when I get home.

FSB: 400
vCore: 1.525v
Multi: 9

ok cool.. I was sort of hessitant to go beyond 1.5V on bios as I did not know what the maximum voltage tolerance would have been. I will try your values. I had tried to boot with 400 FSB yet it never made it to Windows. I did not increase the voltages blindly.

Thanks,
My System
