Prime95 Concerns

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was putting my CPU through a torture test in Prime95 in order to see how high my temp would go. In the process though i noticed that a while in to the test I recieved an error. I have a P4 2.8Ghz, right now it's clocked at 3.15Ghz. Should I be entirely concerned over the error? My Cpu temp under heavy load reaches 47C, which means I have more room to OC, but will my CPU be unstable?

You may need to raise your vDimm or vCore. Prime95 treats every single error the same, so you know that not everything is 100% stable. Run memtest to see if it's your memory or your CPU that is causing the error, then you'll know what to adjust, whether it be vCore, vDimm, or your memory timings.
