Failed Orthos Test, what does it mean?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just brought my E8400 up to 3.8GHz and was running an orthos stress test... the short FFT type.

After about 30 minutes or so, the test failed and printed this:

1:FATAL ERROR: Final result was BFA99CC4, expected: ECA55A45.
1:Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
1:Torture Test ran 32 minutes 48 seconds - 1 errors, 0 warnings.
1:Execution halted.

Although i cant seem to find a stress.txt file... So what does this mean?
My temps were running just fine...52-54C, but also just after restarting the test, i noticed my Vcore suddenly drop to 0.30V, for a few seconds before resuming to around 1.30V...

Are either of these events normal?

Thanks

That's perfectly normal, it just means you need to tweak your CPU a tiny bit to get it stable. Raising the volts by the smallest amount you can should probably do it.

Okay, thanks for the quick response...Should i try 1.31V then? Would that be considered a smallest amount?

Lets start here: What is your VID and what voltage did you set in bios?

Edit: I must type really slow or something :/

Yeah, whatever your bios lets you do. 1.31 will probably do it, if not then on to 1.32.

Hmm looks like the BIOS setting and my probe / cpu-z reading differ by about 0.12V...
So I increased my BIOS setting from 1.300 to 1.315, and now the probe reads 1.30V.

Again, the V core just dropped to 0.45V for a couple seconds...Hmm, shall I increase to 1.330V?

I read up a bunch on Vdrop and Vdroop...and found that i have a 0.045V total loaded drop.. So i increased my Bios Vcore up to 1.3250V, and my loaded Vcore is now 1.280V... But is still crashing Orthos.
Am i meant to just keep upping the Vcore? My probe shows 53 C temps, which agrees with Real Temp 2.5, but Core Temp 0.99 is showing 63 C, if core temp is right, thats about as hot as i want to go right now.
