When I enter in to use 90% of my available ram (or even smaller or larger number), my memory use caps out at like 5.2GB, even though I have 2 4GB sticks. Earlier when I was trying the same thing for 4.5GHz I was getting it to use all the memory or nearly all of it, but now I can't. Windows memory diagnostic said my memory was fine though, just now.

Go into task manager > performance tab > and where it says 'available', enter 90% give or take of that value in prime. smile.gif

Before and right after I clicked run test. Mobo is Asus p8z68-V LX.

Looks okay to me, run it once, stop it, exit out, run prime again and then increase the value you input in prime.. By the way download the latest realtemp from here: http://majorgeeks.com/Real_Temp_d6098.html

But why isn't it using up the value I put in? If I math is correct, I'm only able to use about 3.5GB (maybe its a per program thing?) Because when I ran it as soon as computer started, mem usage was 1.5GB, ran program and it went up to 5GB and flatted out.

Ok, ran 1 of the 1-minute tests under the custom 1344 thing, stopped prime, exited it, this time I input 6000 instead of 5500 into the box, memory still capping out at same value as before.

I just tried running Intel Burn Test while Prime95 was running, everything seems to be working ok with my memory, the usage is slowly climbing to 8GB.

Fixed it... I'm just really dumb. Turns out when I upgraded to prime 26.6 I downloaded the regular version (jnstead of the 64bit). Now it works.


NOW I;m going to probably need some help with regard to overclocking... for example, I see a lot of stuff in this thread say that for an Asus mobo I should be disabling EPU POwer save, setting VRM Freq to 350, and setting phase/duty to extreme. I don't have the option to adjust any of those... is that just because of my mobo (ASUS v8z68-LX). If so, what sort of guide or options are available to me to get to a stable OC at 4.7GHz? Right now I just want to reach a stable value under 1.4V... right now though I am having a hard time being stable at 1.34V for 4.5GHz =\

Bummer man....

I'm running my first 12 hour blend test ever, before I've run it about 6+ hours but never a full 12 hours. I appear to be stable on my i5-2500k @ 1.288V @ 4.5GHz...I'm 5 hours in the test. Going from 4.4Ghz to 4.5Ghz was quite a bump in voltage. Going from 1.248V to 1.288 I thought was alot. My motherboard allows me to change power saving modes (c1,c3) but I don't have control of CPU duty, or even PLL voltage... So basically all I change for overclocking is my core voltage and multiplier...lol Seems to be working quite well so far.

I'll have a skewed temp reading on my 12 hour blend test. My roommate took a nap so he closed the door and window...ie room got hot, a good 75F in the room. I was hoping to be <65C but I don't think that'll happen seeing how my max temp on a core is I believe 66C...

Really I don't see any need for a CPU faster than 4.5GHz...now for some motherboard cooling mods and I'm all set.

So I went in and did as instructed:

Multi at 45 (I'm hoping the Multi I'm changing is the right one, Turbo Multi right?)
PLL Overvoltage Disabled
Memory set to 1600 (default)
LLC is on Ultra High
VRM Freq: 350
Phase and Duty control to Extreme
CPU Current Capability is at 140%
Manual Voltage set to 1.32
CPU PLL Voltage set to 1.7

Still can't boot into Windows. Gets stuck at that same spot in the splash screen. Maybe I got one of those sweet ass CPU's that needs extra love and care.

Could it be something with Windows actually? Maybe I should reformat and remove my RAID 0 or something. It boots completely stable though at 4.2 with stock voltage. Bled test ran 15 hours and BF3 was running champion like smile.gif
