Memtest question......

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. At the momemt I'm running 4 instances of memtest....at 97% being tested, all 4 cores at 100%. However, the PC is running super slow....everything, down to me typing is lagging.

All my other settings are at stock(voltages, cpu), Ram is at 1600(which is safe for this board, and the ram). And temps look great (47c on air). System is 33c.

Is the lag due to all the ram and CPU being utilized for this test??

IF so..I guess that would explain why the 9 year old pc with 2 gigs of ram/athlon 2400 got super slow after Windows XP service pack 3.....

If all the 4 cores are at 100%, there's not much room for other calculations, is there...

I would assume so, however, with Prime95 running before everything was just as fast as normal...with all cores at 100%.

Gotcha...

When I run HyperPi (SuperPi on all cores), my system experiences similar largely nonresponsive lag. Yeah, it's just intensive.
