Thanks Joe, I will attempting an 6-8 hour stability test in OCCT. I should say that I added a high speed 120mm fan to the BT and adjusted the case flow. I move the HDD to bottom of the case because they do not get all that hot to begin with. So now the intake 120mm is pushing nice open air directly to the Chipset and the CPU. To gain stability to to the 3Ghz with a HT of 376 I increased the Chipset voltage to 1.30v from 1.20v

I will agree with all that case flow is very important in air cooled rigs. I'll post back later with a 6-8hour run if it can do it.

Thanks Anqt. I will say I agree with Joe, However it never hurts to have a spare CPU.

Sweet, G.O.

That reminds me to resume my series on fans pretty soon. Perhaps once I permanently defeat this nemesis known as Event ID 51 plaguing my system.

What fan are you now using on the Big Typhoon, G.O.?

Guardian, what are your chipset temperatures typically at when running Orthos?

Good luck

Good question,I'll have to check when running Orthos. Think it will make a difference if I run Orthos instead of OCCT for this longer run?

Hehe

I'm a fan of that fan.

Am giving mine away to Blitz.

Which reminds me just how big a dummy I am.

(Because I've been forgetting to send the fans away to him! They're in a box in my car's trunk, ready to go! He probably hates me now...)

Guardian, you'll probably notice a temp difference within 15-20mins after running Orthos. The results are pretty quick

Good luck

If testing for OCed stability, I'd say that if you run OCCT for a long-enough time it would equal a 24-hour Orthos/Prime95 run. There's an equivalency formula at work; unfortunately, I presently cannot remember what that equivalency formula is.

If you're reasonably confident of your OC's basic stability, though, I still say S&M v.1.9.1 is THE only game in town when it comes to establishing whether or not your OC is stable. If your rig passes this test on "long" setting, it's certifiably stable.

I would interested to see equivalence of the tests. What settings should I run S&M?

A cursory search of equivalence opinions suggests that the consensus opinion is that one hour of the default OCCT Blend Test = 3-5 hours of Orthos Blend (Test Priority Setting unknown).

For S&M, this is how I test CPU & RAM (I don't bother with HDD tests): Run the program S&M; once it loads up, hit "Wizard," which will configure the testing routines. Uncheck the HDD test (the CPU and the RAM tests should be checked by default). For as thorough a test as possible, select "Long" for test length. Select "Maximum" for CPU usage (again for thoroughness). Check the "Display results when completed" box, then hit "Continue."

There's also a section on how to disable temperature thresholds if you want; you can also set the temperature threshold to a value of your choosing.

S&M is THE most strenuous stress tester I've ever seen, bar none. If your kit isn't healthy, it can break. I've lost a kit of Corsair RAM to this test, just to let you know. But my systems must pass this stress test before I am confident to use them daily. Passing multiple S&M runs on my gaming rig is a personal badge of honor. If your rig passes this, it IS the closest thing you'll get to a stable overclocked system, I'd say.

Do you happen to know what the stepping on the Opteron 180 is?
Nah, my cousin was cleaning out his pc cabinet and found it in the cpu sleeve that it came in. It doesn't have the box anymore, and he offered to sell it for like $100 or so. I thought it would be fun to play around with. Any suggestions for a MB if I am able to get this chip?
