Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 53

post #521 of 4289
I think it was Hondaguy that said running the ram at 800 with tighter timings yields much better results than the 1066 at the looser timings... I can say that is true in my experience as well.... You don't have to run the prime95 for me... i am going to stay at the dual core and work with that... i need my pc to be as stable as possible as it will be my main pc when it is all tested....

Fantastic. I will be picking up a DK ASAP then! I need to pick up a side intake fan as well then, because that does sound like a good plan. Thanks again for the info you two

Memnoch_thedevil, not sure if you did mention this already but were there problems with the memory when everything was at stock settings? Issues with P95 may indicate an unstable overclock. Did it pass stress testing at stock speeds? Did you verify with memtest that the memory was in fact faulty/failing? What number tests did you run in memtest?

Good luck

It failed memtest inside of Windows, not the regular version of the test. With everything at stock and the memory at 800 it was fine, but at 1066 it failed. Until the new ram gets here, I am going to just keep working on the undervolt/overclock phase, and then when the new ram comes I am going to test it first via boot memtest to make sure it is good. I just got the video card back today, so hopefully the ram will be next and soon.

For whatever the reason P95 doesn't like me. I can run OCCT and IBT all day long with no errors, but I have always had issues with P95. I have had success with P95 before, I think my longest run before I shut it off was 5-6 hours or so, can't remember, I have the results on the PC somewhere.

I am going to be running it tonight when I go to work, so I will post those results in the morning.

But like I had said before, if i can encode 7 movies to DVD format at the same time that my wife is playing a flash game in firefox, while streaming a movie to my TV in the living room, I don't really think there is a stability issue

Also, a 20 pass IBT on max is pretty reliable as well. That is the latest one I have passed. Perhaps it was my OC originally, I will know for sure when the new ram arrives, because the only thing left that could be causing stability issues when heavily oc'd is the processor..so kind of a process of elimination hehe

I'm trying the undervolt right now.... 3.2ghz (200x16) @1.216v (cpuz) 1.25v set in bios... p95 has been running for almost 2hrs now.... so we might have a winner! Temps are only at 33c at full load...my ambient temp in the room is around 76F.

its nice
i made the mistake of not waiting for the alcohol to dry off completely after removing the old stuff. it was a pain to get on. when i got it finished it was on a little thick. not too thick. but it oozed a little out the sides. any worries?

Probably could stand to be cleaned up a bit if it oozed out the sides
