Hardware Failure!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I downloaded a program a friend recommended to me to stress test my system....

I got a Hardware Failure! but i cant find out where in the program that tells me what failed! heres a jpeg of it.

I have a Q6600 thats overclocked to 3Ghz and my ram is overclocked from 800Mhz to 1066Mhz

If you need more info let me know!

Thanks!

as scary as "hardware failure" sounds, that just means that your system is unstable. To make it more stable, you may need to add voltage to any of the following: vcore (CPU voltage), your motherboard northbridge, or your ram. Don't just add voltage willy-nilly though, read up about it before you try anything. As a guideline, don't have more than 1.5v on the vcore or 2.3v on the ram.

If it isn't a voltage problem, I would guess that your ram is a bit unstable in your setup; fixing ram instability is as easy as "loosening your timings". What this means is that if your current timings are at 4-4-4-12, try running them at 5-5-5-15 and see if you pass the test then.

Lastly, that test doesn't seem to be a popular one. I use ORTHOS, which is a very popular program for dual cores, but I've heard that running four instances of PRIME95 (one for each core) is the way to go. Good luck!

Yeah, your CPU is heating up. What heatsink are you using?

doesn't necessarily mean that his CPU is overheating, but its a definite possibility if he doesn't have a good cooling solution.

Use Coretemp to monitor your temperatures while you are running...make sure the temperatures stay under 71c (intel's thermal spec for this processor).
