i play a relatively non-demanding game called Mabinogi by Nexon

i have 960T running quad core

cpu is at 3.28 ghz @ 1.26v
cpu-nb is at 2.84ghz @ 1.26v
HTT is at 218
8gb Ram is 1460mhz

i pass 7 hours prime on blend. and 200% on HCI memtest.
passing 200% on memtest means ram is ok right?

However, gaming on mabinogi will sometimes crash me...

i've tried upping or downing cpu speed with significant voltage bumps, but still same results.
is there any specific way i can test to see if cpu-nb is the culprit?

gamecrashes aren't always due to the GPU or the CPU. Sometimes it's just bad testing on the game's part.
Like for me, I know there was nothing at all wrong with my hardware but yet sometimes Skyrim crashes to the desktop without a warning or anything.

dm22, i read (i think it was 2thAche who said) that vantage is a good tool to test the cpu/nb. and yes, at 2800MHz your voltage is kinda low. test first at current settings. my system needs 1.4v! for a 2800 cpu/nb.

btw, at that small amt of oc, you prolly don't need 2800 on the cpu/nb. try 2600.

EDIT: that mobo is built for oc'ing.

i also just passed LinX 20x pass with cpu at 3.3ghz @ 1.25v
dang this cpu runs pretty fine at low voltages

too bad it doesn't scale that way when adding voltage for high overclocking...lol
i ran cine yesterday at 4GHz 1.36v (llc on) . . .

453

i tried Linx and temp went past 60C and i had to shut it down. winter is definitely over.

EDIT: how stable is your gpu?

Some games just will do this, Fallout 3, you had to disable two cores to get the game to run right in a quad core or better, because
it would corrupt auto or quick saves after a while.

i love the GPU,
Unlocked 6970 shaders
Overclock to 970mhz core clock @ 1.17v
stays under 85C when mining BitCoin
stays under 80 C when running OCCT / Furmark / Kombustor
Stays under 70 C when gaming crysis 2 / Batman Arkam City
fan is kinda loud over 40-60% speed range though....

I think LLC allows the voltages to be bumped over what you set in the bios,
if i set the voltages at 1.36, and turn on LLC,
when i prime /linx, the voltages will go 1.36 + 0.06v = 1.42v under load.
then when i i'd, it'll sit at around 1.35v
It's a good power saving feature for me, cuz my CnQ doesn't lower voltages, only multiplier
