Testing only certain cores?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So if I run my quad as a dual and those 2 cores can run prime 95 at 3.9ghz
then they should run it unlocked as a quad right?
Im gonna test the first two then the 3rd one.
I know my 4th core is stuck at 3.5ish.
I can clock my cores diff settings in the bios so I guess finding each cores limit is kinda cool.
I just have too watch at what temp everything falls apart

...huh?

I'm not sure what precisely you're asking, but I think you can use programs to test the stability of a core by setting the program's CPU affinity in the Task Manager.

Well my bios allows me to set the multi for each individual core, so im gonna test the limits of each one.
But my question, I guess, is each core has its own limit right?
So even if when I set it back to a quad it should still reach its sy=tandalone limit.

yes cores have their own limit, which is why in P95 an unstable OC could show one or more threads crashed while the others are running.
