prime95 and 2600k o/c

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
HI guys when you overclock how long do you run prime between clocks
like if you start out at say 4.5 how long do you run prime be for up your o/c to say 4.6 and so on.
and do you use blend mode when you do this.

It's better to use the blend test cause it will test the CPU and the RAM. Smalls FFT test only the CPU.

How long you must run it is a matter of personnal preference. Some ppl like to run it for 24hours, then you can say your CPU is 24 hours prime stable.
I like to run 8-12 hours.

You can run 20 passes of linx or Intel burn test, and see if your OC looks stable. Then you can go for a good 12 hours of prime.

so you mean you run prime 12 to 24 hours between overclock, so if you start at 4.5 and you want to hit say 5ghz . you run it for 24hour 5 times

and i ran linx and i cant pass 2 runs but i can pass 14 hours of prime blend.
but i here linx and the sandy cpu don,t like each other.

LinX or Intel Burn Test will just stress your system much more than Prime blend will. I wouldn't recommend running Prime 24+ hours for each test, as it wastes so much time, electricity, and (very) slowly degrades your parts.

LinX/IBT: 20-30 runs with max RAM used

LinX is a much better stress tester, you will know very soon if your OC is stable & good, the key is to ensure that all GFlops & Time to do the test are very close. I simply hate running through 8 hours of Prime 95 only to run LinX 10-30 times and see it error out..

This tutorial can help you further

This is not true with sandy. The best stress test out there for sandy in prime95 blend. i Can pass 200 passes of linx with lastest pack only to find out that it crashes within a minute in prime95 blend. This has been discuss 100s of time here with sandy bridge.


Run linx or IBT (same has linx) see if you can do 20 pass max memory. Jump to prime 95 blend (which will probably fail) for a few hours. Give it a little more volt if it does fail. Watch your temp while increasing the voltage.

You don't have to go 4.5ghz, 4.6ghz, 4.7ghz and testing stability. If you want 4.8ghz start from there see if it is stable with the right temp and right voltage stay there or go a little higher. if not then move down to 4.7ghz and so on.
