post #5521 of 10700
I found another good Prime95 custom blend test that's good for checking stability: 4096k. it works well in a custom blend test with 90% of your ram--just like 1792k and 1344k do.

It seems to really stress the cpu, imc, and ram in a sandy bridge system, so it's a good test for overall system stability.

1792k and 1344k are also very good, but I have passed them and failed 4096k on numerous occasions, so I think it's good to use a combination of all of them when checking stability.

So far, if I've passed 1792k, 1344k, and 4096k for 20 minutes each, I've never failed a long Prime95 custom blend, so this can save you a lot of wasted hours on long Prime95 runs that fail hours into the test.

Edit: btw... I've used 4096k on multiple 2500k's, and it worked well at checking stability with all of them, so it seems like a good general purpose test.

I thought about that. smile.gif Still have an hour to go on my 12 hour blend run, but then I am going to try the 4096 FFT test as well, and see how much I need to increase vcore to get that stable.

My first overclock ever:) Used prime95 for 13h and 20mins.

Count me in:)

P.S.1: Since its my 1st overclock attempt do you find my temps and Vcore bad /normal/good?

P.S.2: Cooling --->AIR Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B

I'm pretty sure if you're able to pass a 12 hour blend, you'll pass the 4096 easily. It's actually one of the tests that gets run during a normal blend, but I forget how long it takes to get to that test.

Yeah, your temps and vcore look pretty good.

The only thing I noticed is that your BCLK is lower than 100. Is it always 99.8, or does it fluctuate?

It's not a big deal, but if you want it to be 100, you might need to disable cpu spread spectrum or manually increase BCLK to 100.2 to compensate.

FFT 4096k is the last FFT to run in prim95 in the blend test,a blend cycle takes roughly 3 hours,then starts the cycle again,smile.gif

Ah cool thanks , and yeah it seems like I am doing just fine on the 4096 test so far. smile.gif

Going for a stable 4.6GHz clock before I start posting screenies though. I think my cooling can handle it just fine, even if I need fairly high voltages to get 4.6 (over 1.4 vcore)

Well thank you for answering. My BCLK is rated 100 in my BIOS and also i have already disabled CPU Spread Spectrum.So i dont know why it appears to be 99.8 in cpu-z.Do i really have to tweak it to 100.2 or i ll be fine?? Also could you explain me what you mean when you say "does it fluctuate?" as i said i am still noob in overclocking:)

When I said does it fluctuate, I meant does it stay at 99.8 in cpuz, or does it change from 99.8 to 100.0 throughout the test?

It's not a big deal, that's just why your cpu and ram speeds are slightly less than 4.5 ghz and 800mhz in the cpuz screenshot. I wouldn't worry about it.

To add to your post, the type of cooling is "AIR Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. B" (Just to save others from needing to google whether that's air or water. smile.gif )

Your Vcore and Tmax look just fine to me. Nice job getting everything right on your first time! thumbsupsmiley.png
