Quick orthos question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When people say you should run atleast 9-12 consecutive hours of Orthos to test stability, is that on priority 1 or 9/10? As im presuming on priority 10 the program would get a lot more done in the 9 hours than it would on priority 1.

Also if Orthos reports an error, does that definately refer to instability regarding the overclock? E.g i wouldnt think so, but just to eliminate, could something like faulty ram be a culprit?

Cheers!

I run all my Orthos test at priority 7 or 8. If you have it at 10 you cant even move your mouse...or monitor your temps.

There seems to be some personal preference as to what level priority people run at.... I would think that if you're running 7 or above, it should be a good test. I run mine at priority 10 for final stability check.... but a higher priority does not make it go faster or get any more done. And if an error crops up, it does mean that there is some instability in your OC.... such as faulty ram(definitely could be a culprit), not enough voltage somewhere, some setting(or settings) not right, etc.

Ah thanks for that, im wondering if theres something faulty in my system in that case i.e ram. Maybe i should run memtest...

The reason im saying this is because im having trouble stabalizing my system at 3.0Ghz. Whenever i play a game, on any random occasion (sometimes after 2 hours of play) the sound cuts out and a loud screetching sound emits from the speakers, the games themselves never crash.

Orthos reported an error about 4 hours in to the test. Ive upped my vcore from 1.35 all the way to 1.42v and still experiencing the same problem. Im gonna lower the vcore and up the nb voltage to see if this helps but ive kind of tried this previously and it didnt, so im just wondering whether its another component in the system causing this..

Just cause you get a failure doesnt mean your oc is unstable. You gotta start from scratch if you run orthos before doing any oc and you come up with errors you could have a HW problem. so i suggest you do that before trying to get stable at some OC. You could always fail and never took the time to stress the hardware from day 1

If you dont oc run stable orthos for 10hrs then oc and then get an error yes its related to your oc

So my best bet is drop back to stock levels and run orthos, if no errors then my hardwares fine. Then OC again and if orthos reports errors then i know its to do with the OC?

I think so. Just to be safe. How quick does it fail. When i first started nmy oc mine would fail or reboot in seconds.

it was my vcore.

as far as the prority thing ahh I knew nothing about it. Does that mean im not stable or something? I ran the blend test cpu and memory not sure what the priority was stock(default) i guess. Not trying to jach your thread or anything.

I would thing you gotta start somewhere. So knowing it can run without failing from stock is a good starting point.

just saw your ram in the sig . how is that setup a 2 gb and a 1 gb ? Not sure if you have 3 chips or something . Not sure if that plays a rols but it might if you have 3 or 4. I know for sure it stresses the chipset more . providing voltage to all the modules

Yeh its 3 seperate 1GB sticks, i only just got the third stick though, previously it was two sticks and the problem was still there.

The last time i ran orthos it reported an error back 3-4 hours in to the test. Im running the test again right now so ill see how long it makes it this time. BTW, im running the test on Small FFT's, that is correct right? or do i need to switch to to blend..

If you're suspecting the ram, it would be a good idea to run Memtest to check them out individually. On Orthos, large FFT's will stress the ram, and blend stresses the ram and CPU.... I believe small FFT's stress the CPU.
