What do ERRORS mean?

post #1 of 6

In LinX, what does it mean when you get an error? Are these bad? Will they kill your system if you don't fix it or should you just ignore them?

How do you diagnose with the error code what the error actually means?

Well I mean, are errors bad for your CPU/RAM? I've been running everything flawlessly without issues. But if errors cause damage over time, I don't want that at all. So should I fix them?

And when it comes to diagnosing them, how do I know if it's my RAM or my CPU that needs to be fixed?

An error showing up in LinX is a sign of an unstable overclock. The incorrect residual can actually tell you a lot about the error. If it happened within the first ten minutes, chances are it's your core. If it happens after ten minutes and/or the residual is positive, then it's probably your uncore/QPI. Here's a handy guide to get you started on the fine-tuning of an overclock:

Edit: An overclock that seems stable but shows errors in LinX is a sign of silent errors. While these may just seem like occasional nuisances from time to time, they will build up and slowly degrade your OS and possibly your data as well. Do be careful of them, they've gotten me plenty of times.

This is making me quite upset. Can someone help diagnose?

Last night I was getting errors every 8 minutes almost exactly. I increased my QPI and CPU voltage to 1.375 and then I was getting errors around every 40 minutes. I upped my QPI voltage to 1.4 and the error changed to 70 minutes. I obviously didn't increase my CPU voltage past 1.375 cause that's bad news bears.

I don't know what else to do here at this point. I read that if the error was AFTER 10 minutes, it is most likely the QPI/RAM. I read NOTHING about upping the DRAM voltage past 1.65 though (maybe 1.66) having anything to do with fixing this.

So what do I do? Retry underclocking my RAM? Up the voltage past the safe 1.4v? I'm confused and sad.

I underclocked my RAM to 10-11-10-27 (as opposed to 9-11-9-27).

-edit-

Actually, I would suggest trying component by component to overclock. Lower Uncore (maintain 2667Mhz?), Lose Latencies on memory and lowest multi on QPI and then see where the core ends
up with HT disabled. Test the UnCore next against QPI voltages with lowered CPU frequency to identical clock as UnCore or lower and last test the memory and UnCore tight timings -> drop all
highest values up on their respective voltages.
