Prime 95... tricking with my PC? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Thank you very much guys for insuring me about CPU health :-)
I will stress my memory as well. Still I am not sure, if memory could cause problem of instability, because I didn´t stress it as you can see...

Just one thing... I started use Prime 95 few days ago for the first time :-) So I am not sure about "immediately hitting custom after hitting blend". Is it impossible to run only custom without starting blend before? Because even in custom there is a choice to run torture test, isn´t it?
You see... IB test is much more easier to know than Prime 95 (a lot of choices here). So I am not very sure, how exactly to set options at Prime and... if it is ok to run blend and + start custom when blend is running simultaneously... :-( Thank you for possible feedback!

PS: pioneerisloud... have you please any advice, how to check RAM? Is there any program to allow me this checking of memory? (my RAM is bright new + copper cooler on it - Kingston 1333 MHz; no overclocked)

You checkmark "Blend", but don't hit start. This will force the Blend features to be used in your Custom test. Then you checkmark "Custom", set the memory usage to 3/4 at least of your total RAM (6144 for 8GB), and then hit start testing. You're only starting the test once, and with custom settings. I'm having you hit "blend" first though, so it forces the blend tests to be ran....just with more memory is all.

And if you want to check that your RAM is functioning fine, this won't "stress test" it, but will check it, you can try out "Memtest" on an overnight run. It's a downloadable .iso file, that you burn to a CD, and boot from it. Once it boots, it'll start running through the tests. Just let it run for at least 8 hours. That'll tell you that your RAM is fine or not.

Great! Thank you very much for your tips! I did check web for memtest, still there are many testing programs available. May I ask you, which memtest do you use (for x86 architecture = 64 bit system, 8GB RAM)?
Thank you for possible advice.

just fyi, intel wouldnt put throttling on a SB cpu at 95ish for no reason, so let's say your real max is at high 80's.

x86=32 bit

people say u can either use the memtest u boot into or use windows 7's memtest

Oh... I suppose, that SB 2500K is 64-bit architecture compatible, right? Well, when Memtest is 32-bit compatible, where can I get 64-bit compatible memtest?

Or did you mean, it is no difference, so I shall use memtest86 (32-bit version) on my PC?

I know you hard core oc'ers don't mind running your chips at insain temps, but most of you won't have your chips very long before upgrading again.

I give "conservative" temp limits to allow a person new to oc'ing to make mistakes and get the most out of their oc experience without immediate risk.

Yeah, ok, Ile give high 80's might not kill his cpu in 5 seconds, but 8 hours of ~1.40v and ~90c could very possibly damage his chip.

Think of it this way: The Titanic could fill with say 10'000 tons of water before sinking, but why would you fill it with 9,999 tons of water to get some small benefit when a small wave could easily swamp it at that load.

Please don't advise a new oc'er to call intel's "bluff' on their own chips.
