Rules

Also PLEASE read the small print between each RULE


1. 12 HOURS+ STANDARD BLEND or CUSTOM BLEND with ATLEAST 90% of YOUR AVAILABLE RAM used

***Check with task manager/performance tab/physical memory for how much AVAILABLE RAM you have***
***To do Custom BLEND and JUST change the amount of RAM from 1600 to 90% of your available***
***All workers must be visible (hit the windows tab between options and help in prime and select tile)***



2. MUST have a screenie WHILE UNDER LOAD with your OCN name (notepad etc), CPU-Z 1.57.1+ and REALTEMP 3.67+ ONLY!!!

***REALTEMP must show the duration of how long it's running!!!***
***Z68 GIGABYTE MUST ALSO SHOW EASYTUNE6 (last tab - hwMonitor) or HWiNFO FOR VCORE***
***EVGA USER'S MUST USE THE EVGA E-LEET UTILITY FOR VCORE READINGS***


3. LIST YOUR COOLING (notepad etc) and provide screenie of RAM, VOLTAGE, MOBO INFO via cpu-z and TASK MANAGER.

***TASK MANAGER only if your running custom blend, make sure you show Prime95 process.***



4. Must have a mild overclock 4ghz+

All submissions must follow a similar template like this!!!!
(This is mine before a few rules got amended)

IF YOU ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE RULES PM ME OR POST IT HERE


*****************Standard Blend VS Custom Blend Stability***************** (Click to show)

Stability is hugely subjective, for example leaving a 20/30 tabs open and playing bfbc2 with fraps will surely drain the available RAM, that for someone could be everday usage.

Taking that into account I find that being able to stay stable for scenerio's like that, decreases your chances of getting any kind of bsod, therefore 'MORE' stability, which might be overkill to some but desirable for plenty of people.

On that note, those that have passed the blend run at 1600mb are stable for how they run their rig, for example, gaming 24/7 bfbc2 with no problems, however, it 'may' not be stable for high ram usage scenerio's which could be unlikely for some as they won't be running fraps and have 20/30 tabs open in the background because that's not how they run their rig.

Once you have done a 12hour+ blend whether it be custom or standard blend, there won't be a need to run it again and im pretty certain that you won't get a bsod that relates to unstability of your overclock.

There will ALWAYS be different opinons about this whole stability issue.

This is JUST the stable club, whether you go for, a standard blend or a custom blend you should be stable for what you use it for, stability is stability for your own use. If standard doesn't work for you, then go ahead and do a custom blend, that's the way I see it.

This is the stable thread, that's means general stability and extreme stability, both are included, however those with 8gb+ should really want to be using custom blend rather than normal blend (1600mb)
BUT ITS TOTALLY UPTO YOU!!! biggrin.gif

Ok and assuming that the 12hr+ stability test goes fine, can you give me some tips on switching over to offset mode? I'd prefer to have it on offset to save some electricity but i'm not exactly sure how I should approach it.

Ughh, was running prime95 custom blend set at 1 minute per and 45 minutes in, worker 8 stopped and the rest continued. Any ideas on what I should do?

Leave the voltage on manual and work your way up slowly until you're happy with your overclock then you can move onto Offset voltage. Here's how offset voltage works:

Leave manual voltage and read the load voltage with cpu-z (example - 1.355v needed for your overclock)
At the same time read the VID under load with Realtemp (reads 1.375v)

Now the offset required in that instance it would be a negative value from the VID to obtain the load voltage you need, it would be -0.020v (1.375 - 0.020 = 1.355v)

There you have it, that's how offset works.

Hello all.

Yesterday i got a freeze while i was browsing on youtube and ofcourse there was no event log for that since it wasnt a bsod. Even if im running my cpu on 4.5ghz i have it stable and passed from all phases of stability tests... Before that freeze i had 2 times nvidia's driver crash within 3 hours. Freeze came after some minutes of the second driver crash.

**My graphics card is at stock clocks!**

Usually i get a driver crash every 3-4 days but yestarday all sudden there were 2 of them?!
This is a known issue from nvidia drivers on 560 ti's which they will fix.... (thats what they say at least)

Im willing to blame the 560 ti and nvidia for their crappy drivers...

BUT (there is always a but) i thought that it might be my CPU (which i give a 10% possibility). So i want to ask if there is anyone out there that got a freeze generally speaking from an overclocked CPU. I was only getting BSOD when there was something wrong but freeze? NEVER!


Thanks in advance

Firefox! With the hardware acceleration on default (ON is the default value i think)

Also forgot to mention that the driver might crash even 10 seconds after i enter windows. Its completely random event and the whole nvidia community is shouting for it... Its a shame because this GPU costs alot...

Yesterday was the first time i got a freeze and also the first time i got two times an nvidia driver crash at the same day and in such a close period of time between them

The worst part is that if someone (including me) has made an overclock to the CPU there is a big possibility to blame the CPU for that freeze instead of blaming the graphics card...

First of all, turn the hardware acceleration in both FF and Flash to OFF (in Flash it is right click and somewhere in the settings/options)
Try reverting to 266.66 drivers. Those are the stablest ones for the 560Ti.

Well i want to play BF 3 tongue.gif and i dont think its possible on 266.66

EDIT: disabled the hardware acceleration mode on FF but i cant find it for flash. Its not on flash player settings listed on the control panel...
edit2: nevermind i found it
