Worker #3, why you failing me? (i5 750) - Page 2

so who cares if it fails after 7 hours. Im so sick of everyone telling my prime test it for long durations. you know what.., mine fails after like half an hour do i give a ****? No, i don't first off who actually plays video games for 7 hours on end? Not to mention even if you did play for that long you would still be fine. Like i said i fail after like half an hour of prime but ive been using the computer for over a year playing games and such with no BSOD related to the processor. Screw all this prime testing.

Honestly though i dont have time either to sit there and prime test it for 24 hours.

I do though. My work is quite time consuming, so I run it while I'm at work.
And I'd like my OC to be completly stable, same for my GPU overclock.

On-topic, the 1.31V VTT test failed after 6 hours (worker 3 again). Backing down to 1.294V.
I wonder what's limiting me to be honest. Motherboard, ram, bad chip? Because as far as I can see, 4GHz shouldn't be too hard with 1.375V VCore.

Is it possible that one core may be sub par or defective?
In any case, I too will not be satisfied until all 4 cores are stable. I always did my overclocks in the long winded way - find max in each component separately and then find a balance.
Sorry, do not have a definitive option for you to try at this moment, but I will do some research to see what I can find.

Cheers mate, appreciate it. Might just stick with my 3.9GHz and wait for Bulldozer

If it's of any help. The core that is failing shows lower temperatures in load than the other and higher than the others in idle. By around 5C or so.

This is everyone's free choice off course. And if you aren't having issues (yet), good for you. But I can guarantee you your chip is degrading slowly, depending on how high an oc you got.

I always sell my chips after a few years, but I'll never want to sell a degraded one.
And I don't see why priming would be time consuming ? Just start it before you go to sleep and let it run till you get home from work the day after ? You won't even notice it's been running for 15hrs or so.

I'm guessing your ram is holding you back. You do have it overclocked a bit, and the standard vdimm voltage may just not cut it. Juice your ram voltage up to 1.60 and test it, OR lower it to BELOW stock to completely rule out memory instability untill you have your cpu stable.

Not sure, its my sig system. How can a chip degrade? that makes no sense..Its not harmful to undervolt a chip just unstable. Besides if temps are fine at 100% load fine. Just a side note, using a chip normally degrades it just like a lightbulb, overclocking just makes it degrade faster, however, who keeps a chip for 10 years anyways?

In my opinion running prime for 24 will degrade the chip, what program do you know that uses 100%cpu for 24 hours? Hell, i dont even leave my computer on for 24 hours at a time because the fans are too loud to sleep.

That's no real proof you know, i can give you the exact pic from cpuz from my chip. just saying...

Prime95 for at least a few hours, take a pic and post it.

Yeah, I'm getting new 2250MHz ram next week. So let's see if that'll improve my stability.

If you're already failing blend test, adding faster frequency memory is actually going to make it worse! You're stressing the memory controller more which is just going to give you a bigger headache.

BTW, try using odd multis. I know 1366 CPUs don't respond well to even multipliers for some reason, don't ask me why. But maybe the same thing could happen on 1156.
