Great 2600k chip or not? ;-) - Page 3

post #21 of 91
The chip is in whatever category you want it to be in...You can go for high speeds if you want, or low volts and use less energy. Most people tend to try and aim for 5ghz and higher.

Try intel burn test though, stress level maximum, threads 8, ram ALL, times to run 20.

If it passes that, thats usually a good stable.

OP, I hope you're noticing the pattern of posters trying to make you realize that your clocks are most likely not stable using the parameters that you used for your testing. Come back with real test results with real proof that has HT enabled next time you have the need to "impress" again.

I'll try the blend mode. And with HT on. But for how long? It seems like this is a VERY randomly pointed out number. 12 hours, 16 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours? Seems like 6-12 hours DO work great.

Stability to me is watching movies, gaming, unpackning bluerays etc. Leaving it on 24/7.

^Or you could just take my advice and run Intel burn test and have result in an hour...?

Sounds like a good idea. :-) I'll try that

It depends on your vcore.

I would NEVER, EVER think of running ANY stress test (Prime, LinX) at all at 1.5v. You're risking destroying your CPU by doing that, unless you're on ice water or sub zero. Perhaps 24/7 folders might, as they're putting all the mhz to use--and, they can afford new CPU's since their electric bills are sky high, but there has already been one report of serious degradation (5 ghz-->4.6 ghz) after 2 months folding at 1.5v.

At 1.4v, try for one hour at least. This will show that your computer is at least stable enough for normal use. If you don't crash, just use the computer and do the normal stuff you do--gaming, encoding, contemplating your navel, youtube, whatever you like to do. The only reason to leave it running overnight is for joining an internet club (which won't give you anything besides ego points). I'd never do a 12 hour run; it would interfere with my game playing, plus, the longest I've slept recently is 6 hours, unless I'm sick.

At 1.3v, run as long as you need to prove stability; you shouldn't have any degradation (beyond any "initial" degradation some cpu's do within one hour of being powered on).

In my own experience, if you can pass 45 minutes of blend, you could be anywhere between fully (not counting LinX AVX, which ALWAYS Takes more vcore though) stable, to stable enough for games. And some people have run for 8 hours and STILL have BSOD's at idle or light load....

Don't prime at 5.4 ghz. NO ONE does that. Such high clocks/volts are used for benching or finding maximum speeds. Haven't seen anyone even game at 5.4 ghz since there's no point to it with the increased vcore, past 5 ghz.

Just like you were saying in a previous post. People don't give a rats ass about others "stuff" on the internet. Like I was trying to say. The system is running perfectly fine at 5.4 although somewhat hot. It runs all the games i throw at it, it hasn't died on me once. Running a stress test for 12-24 hours just to say "Hey look it's stable, and it melted." isn't my plan. I'll just do that intel burn test thing, and if it works. Great. But why HT? The only times I use HT is when i do a lot of compressing with winrar. Probably over 200 bluerays at this point. And it hasn't crashed because of that either. So obviously, it's stable. Depending on what "stable" is for some people.

100% load at 24/7 for 6 years to come? Yes please show me a pic of that

It is about having proof of your claim and you are not providing it.

Here is my proof... 10hours 4.6ghz with 1.272v Ht On

Booting into Windows at 4.8 GHz at 1.28v is quite amazing it self.
