If you want to you can try to lower the vcore, but yeah you want to run the stability tests again when you lower it, that's how you see how low you can go.
Ive got mine set at 1.305v right now but i might try to lower it.

also i just looked at your screen there and there are two voltage levels that look a little off to me. first, that program is not detecting what some of those values are for, you might try to find another program or an updated version of that to see what they are for, but your 5V is above 6V which is a little high, and then there's another that's reading 2.16v that looks a little high to but not sure as it doesn't read what that voltage is...

Check this program out then it's the MSI control center, the power consumption is a bit... weird though.. tongue.gif

Baaah I got a rounding error when running blend for 8 hours.

I set the FTT run time to 5 minutes so I guess that runtime would be somewhat equal to 24 hours?

I am stuck, what do I do?

i would try raising vcore if you want it to show complete stability. otherwise you might be fine. i tried lowering my vcore to 1.3 and vdimm to 1.63 (after taking my 3GB ram set out, leaving the 6GB kit) and all the threads but 1 in prime errored instantly. i raised it back to 1.306/1.64 and it was completely stable

I ran blend test for 13 hours..

this is why i do 16-24 hours. just when you think you got it stable, bam an error right at the 13 mark. but when you get an error that far in you should only need 1 more notch of vcore.

Someone else told me that my vcore was "extremely high", which made be doubt my OC a bit.. Is being at ~1.3v to 1.34v for 4GHz a lot?

Just do 50 runs of Linx and call it a day:thumb:

Some of these "you should run Prime95 for 3 years and then ITB at maximum for 1000 runs" comments from people when talking about stability crack me up.

Interesting is that Prime did give me errors after some hours, you would still call it stable after 50 linx runs in IBT?

I would. When I first started this last year I would run prime 95 for 24 hours and then Linx etc. That is just overkill in my opinion. I never game for more 24 hours so....

I think if you can run 50-100 of linx using max memory you should be good to go. All I do is game and have fun with benchmarks with my computer. I do not fold anymore.

Anyway, I have only had a non-mac PC for a year but I have learned a lot from this forum but this stability thing gets out of hand on here sometimes. It becomes a pi#$ing contest about how "stable" someones computer is because they did a million runs of Linx and Prime95 for weeks. All I see is wasted gaming time:thumb:

I am also not going to argue about this when someone sees my post says my computer isn't stable unless I do Prime95 for 24 hours or 200 runs of Linx.

Good luck and take my post with a grain of salt, I am still pretty new. This is just my opinion.

EDIT I just saw you had errors after some hours. Some hours like 2 or 20?

Anyway, try 50 Linx runs and report back.

Haha, I do agree with lost gaming time. But I do more with my computer than just that, I do video editing and such which can take a lot of cpu / memory over a long period of time.

But imho, running IBT 50 runs is stable enough for the above. smile.gif I've tried setting my BCKL and multiplier to something else and raised the vcore a bit, let's see if this holds up.

I'd hate to go back to stock.
