Hey guys, I just finished running my 120th pass on OCCT and guess what......Bad news

<<<It failed on the last 117th test>>>> Looks like there's no answer of the most stable one after all.........

Runs?

Are you doing GPU: memtest?

either that or cpu test... gpu test doesn't do iteration... still 117 passes isn't bad at all with no errors... with that many passes you'll probably do fine gaming. gotta test that gpu clock though...

So I ran COD : MW2 and in the middle of the game, it suddenly it blackouted for 1, 2, 3? secs and everything went back to normal.........I'm pretty sure something is not right with my overclocks......Help ??
post #16 of 16
this is how i found my max overclock...

set max voltage that MSI Burner would allow 1.087v

isolated the GPU from the Memory by leaving memory at stock speeds
set my GPU clock to 950mhz

loop
tested oc with OCCT GPU test for 15min and watch the artifact ticker for any artifacts...
if i got artifacts i would end the test and drop the clock in 5mhz increments
repeat OCCT test...
/loop

once i could pass OCCT GPU test for 15min with no artifacts i deemed it stable(not necessarily stable) @ 905mhz

then i isolated the memory from the GPU by reseting the GPU clock to stock.
set my memory at max that OCCT would allow
downloaded MemtestG80 that i got from F@H https://simtk.org/home/memtest/

loop
dragged and dropped the exe file into cmd window
set it to run 50 iterations
ran it and watched for errors... as soon as i got an error i would stop it... drop my memory in 10mhz increments
re-run MemtestG80
/loop

once i could pass MemtestG80 I deemed it stable(not necessarily stable) @ 2170mhz

finally i set my GPU at the max clock from the GPU test... and set my memory at the max clock from the Memory test...
Set OCCT to run for 15min and checked the artifact ticker for errors...
Success... No Errors...

After all that i dropped my GPU clock from 905mhz to 900mhz and my memory from 2170mhz to 2160mhz to get what i deemed stable(folding stable for over 24hrs)...
