6900 WU unstable?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Eh guys...

Just wanted to throw it out there.

I'm currently running a 980X and been tweaking the OC on it a little bit. I have grown through 4.1 which seemed rock steady even to the WUs.

However- though I seem to be able to get 4.4 (33x133) steady on every testing platform I can think of... I can't seem to tweak it to the satisfaction of WU 6900 (Bigadv).

With that being said, I don't want to blame the WU- but anyone have any idea what "PART" of the OC is unstable for the purpose of the client? I've been getting windows errors that the core is crashing... client core communication failure C0000005 (can't remember how many 0s).

I see that it's referenced to OC instability- I'm just not sure which part of the OC to fine tune? If I were depending mostly on bclock I could see where there might be cause for more tweaking but I'm basically just on the multiplier. Much of the rest is in stock form (except voltages of course.)

I have lots of voltage headroom- but I don't want to turn that up any more if there could be cause somewhere else.

Thanks fellow folders!

When that error occurs it is usually due to unstable memory.
Give one of the stress programs a try using as much ram as possible and see if you pass.

Not sure if you have done plenty of bigadvs before but if you have and this is the first time it errors out then it was probably just that unit.

Thanks! I'm still ironing out some kinks. Most of my efforts have been targetted at the CPU because the RAM is all running at stock- but not to say there's not something wrong with it!

Regards and happy new year!
