yeah i quit using IBT been using Linx but IBT on 8 threads is the same as Linx

but Linx you dont have to worry about setting it to 8 threads

will passed 20 passed but at 1.313v load 1.32 going to try for less


what settings are you using BD24 ?

I see what you're saying. I just tried IBT and manually selected "8" threads, and it does indeed stress it harder than "Auto". Doing so, actually required me to bump up my CPU Voltage as well. I haven't used Linx before, but, I just pulled it down now and will use this tool as my new baseline for testing OC's, using:

- Problem size: 26055 / Memory to use: 5200MB / Times to run: 20 -

Stay tuned for new/updated settings.

PS: It'll take awhile, so don't expect instant information! Hehe

You may need to select 16 threads rather than 8 with IBT... read somewhere there with the 8 thread setting. Not sure if this was ever fixed or not. I had found P95 large FFT / blend to be a more stringent stability checker than IBT, but now give the nod to LinX - it fails earlier than P95.

I've done some long LinX runs and have found instability well beyond 20 runs; eventually it will probably error on any machine. But for day to day use, 20 runs with 25,000 problem size is adequate. You may need to stop some unnecessary processes/services to free up enough memory to do 25,000+ problem size which requires 4766kb RAM. With IBT the 'very high' setting stresses only 4096kb RAM, which is about a 23,188 problem size with LinX.

Hey guys, any tips on which mid-level RAM to buy? I want to get 6gb (for my P6X58D Preminim) and don't want the worst or can afford the best. something off newegg that I can't OC a D0 up to a stable 3.5 for folding with. Thanks

See post #835. But I'm using power saving features, so you'll have to adjust your voltages accordingly if you don't want to use C1E and speedstep.

With IBT the 'very high' setting stresses only 4096kb RAM, which is about a 23,188 problem size with LinX.
The reason why I stress 5200MB (actually 5400 would be best, but its really difficult to free up enough memory) is because since these beasts have an integrated memory controller, you aren't really loading up the processor unless you pound the IMC with a lot of memory. That's why it usually takes a few notches more vcore to run 5200mb memory instead of 768 or 1024. Its really pounding the processor because of the IMC load.

Here's how you can verify this yourself. Just for a test, bump up your vcore about 0.07v higher than it usually needs to be, and then disable loadline calibration and watch how much the processor voltage droops under load on a test like hyperpi32M x 8 vs. a program like Linx 5200MB memory. For Linx 5200MB memory my system sits at 1.272v, under hyperpi32M x 8 it'll sit at 1.288 or even 1.296. This is a good indication that although hyperpi is using 100% cpu, it is not hammering the processor hard enough to get it to droop all of the way. The only way you can do this is by stressing the processor with a lot of memory at the same time. A guy like xmisery who has 12GB of memory should probably me Linx testing at around 11,200 MB of memory to be completely thorough.

So prime95 and IBT 4096 memory don't mean much to me any more, at least as far as my testing goes. I still feel that hyperpi32M x 8 is the best to get things close as far as QPI and DRAM voltage goes, followed by tuning with Linx 5200MB for final stability. On this board at least, I have yet to see a situation where I pass Linx 5200MB memory and still have stability issues.

How much do you want to spend?
post #877 of 6378
I just noticed something weird on my P6X58D while stress testing 4.05ghz (21x193) I was using OCCT as it seems to stress it a little more than Prime95 and I noticed that the Bclk would change. Sometimes it would stay at 193 and other times it would drop as low as 182. As far as I know, I disabled all the speedstepping and throttling settings in the BIOS. This doesn't happen with Prime95. Does anyone have any ideas??
post #878 of 6378
I've seen similar things in everest. I'd like to think its my tweaking ability, but probably just a glitch in the way the software is reporting

post #879 of 6378
I used xmisery settings to hit 4.2 GHz HT On. Didn't work for me but gave me a super good starting point, only numbers I´ve changed are CPU Voltage and QPI/Dram Core voltage. Here are my results from LinX.

CPU Voltage: 1.29375
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.123125
LinX: System crash after 40s

CPU Voltage: 1.31250
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.123125
LinX: Stopped after 3m 47s

CPU Voltage: 1.31875
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.25000
LinX: Stopped after 3m 45s

CPU Voltage: 1.35000 (big jump I know but Im going to work it down from there if its stable)
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.24375
LinX: Stopped after 4 passes (15m 22s)

CPU Voltage: 1.35635 (1.344 in windows)
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.25635
LinX: PASSED 20 times!
Temps: 76 - 73 - 72 - 67

Managed to make 1.35635 / 1.25635 finish 20 times. I'll check tomorrow if I can bring it down..
