LinX question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i am little bit confused as to why my overclock keeps failing with this tool. i've played games and encoded, never a crash or BSOD. now i am not the type of person to do things for an extended period of time. but whenever i run a test on linx, i get errors within a few minutes. what could be the explanation for this disparity. thanks

okay, i think i pinpointed the problem. i had turbo boost enabled. when i turned it off, the test doesn't give me errors. turbo boost wasn't giving me much of an increase anyway.

Vcore is the most likely culprit, but a slight NB bump may be in order too if you have it set really low. It would help if you listed the bccodes you're getting.

Linpack is pretty much the harshest test there is as far as temps go.

I've covered this here:

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/74...ml#post9515952

In two posts in that thread.

Yours is reversed from the common example, where Prime95 or LinX passes, but GAMES crash the system, but it's a chaotic event, so it can be any combination.

The common error is to assume that any particular application code would prove the system's stability. It can't. People tend to think of the CPU as a monolithic device, but it's a collection of hundreds of millions of components each with slightly different performance characteristics. It is entirely possible that a CPU can perform various tasks, yet fail when a certain combination of circuits are activated which are unused at other times, and if those occasional circuits happen to be the weakest or slowest in the mountain of circuits in the system, failure only happens when they're activated.

Seriously? One i7 owner telling another i7 owner to bump Northbridge voltage?

Seriously. It's called the X58 chipset. You should read up instead of being a troll.

Knock it off. mooch49's motherboard is a P55 motherboard, it doesn't have a northbridge.

Usually if you get errors but not a complete freeze or BSOD it means your vcore is just a bit too low. Try bumping the NB first to rule it out and if it still happens raise the vcore. Also be sure to follow the instructions for how to run LinX in this thread

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...test-linx.html

To make sure you're doing it properly.

Edit: Apparently your board doesn't have a northbridge, I guess I need to upgrade

Oh, I didn't see the OP had an 800 series i7.

But that's beside the point of the troll. He was clearing talking about i7s as a whole, and most people on this board that have i7s have one that lives on an X58 mobo.

So Vcore more than likely, but it could be other things as we don't have much info to go on.
