Burn-in - in relation to memory (given the location of this thread ) is particularly useful to push the MHz wall of BH / UTT / CH type modules.

Use memtest and set the low latencies and a high Vdimm for a particular MHz, and run tests #5 or better #8, watch the errors - if there are too many back off the Mhz and/or bump the Vdimm - the idea is to have a few errors and eventually they will stop.... allow them to rest - cool down and retest.. it takes time but does work.

Good one on ya m8! Single handedly "directing" the site! There should be a ncsa thread so you always get your answer straight off!

Anyway,... uhm,... so burn in doesn't work well with TCCD?

You're talking about memtest here,... right? Fairly clear really, just maybe not for everyone.

Correct TCCD does not benefit this approach and more than likely will kill it as they are best kept under 2.85v, given their design spec is 2.6v. Of course that does not stop those who wish to break some CPUz record showing high HT but with a low CPU multi

And the tool to use is Memtest as it hammers the memory and you see the results and there is no chance of corrupting your OS as you do not go near it, Prime will just stop on you if there is an error with no feedback - use this later on.

prime is for CPU burn in. once you have your memory where you want it, jack your proc up until its not stable. once its not stable at a certain voltage, knock it down one notch to right where its stable and run Prime95 for like 8-12 hours, then keep on going up (be careful though because eventually it'll kill your PSU unless you have a good quality one which you do).

Go fold at 100% for a couple of weeks, the stress cycling will be useful

And you won't be wasting electricity for no good reason.
