Hardware fail Only-
Tweak posted a topic in General DiscussionHey everyone, i have a rather basic understanding of overclocking, and stress testing so let me just start with that. To start off. I run a 750 power supply MSI Gaming pro carbon 270z i7 7700k MSI GTX 1080 TI Gskill 32gigs @2117 Water cooler blah blah blah. When i run a stress test on Memory @ Stock Specs (for everything including GPU) everything passes and nothings unstable. MSI has this nifty "Gaming mode" in its BIOS which Clocks my CPU 4.8 Max and my RAM @2800 (which is the advertised speed). Once i run a stress test on the Memory in said Gaming mode i get "hardware fail" from ADIA64. This is rather quickly after starting the test, 10 seconds top. once i push everything back to stock and reboot everything runs stable which makes me believe my RAM isnt "bad". Now i can't for the life of my figure out if i have "bad ram" or i don't have the correct voltage.. or... i can post logs if needed not sure on what information is needed here. Computer skills: New overclocker Any help would be amazing
First post. Love the product and the active support community! I *think* I have a stable system: Ryzen 5 1600 3.8 GHz @ 1.3375v MSI Tomahawk B350 16GB Corsair LPX 3200 RAM running at 2666 @ 1.36v EVGA GTX 1070 SC with a +100/500 overclock GPU/memory Plenty of clean power via an EVGA Supernova G2 750w PSU I've run AIDA64 for hours without failures with the ^^ settings after some failed tests made me pull back my memory clock and increase my Vcore. Most recently I ran FPU by itself without issue (76C max temp on top-down air cooling in a "meh" airflow case...weird, right? I'll save that for another post), then all the subtests (minus GPU) at once without FPU, then finally added FPU to the mix for the last hour so that all subtests minus GPU were running at once. At multiple points during my stress testing my two monitors went black for 5-10 minutes at a time. The pointer was visible and movable, sometimes with a spinny wheel, sometimes not, but at no point could I get control of the PC back until it decided to come back on its own. I assumed this was going to be a failed test but the progress bar was still chugging along and no failures had been reported. I've gotten the black screen on a GPU only test before and assumed it was because I was stressing the graphical interface beyond its ability to send info to my monitors, but in these recent tests I omitted the GPU from testing. I've read up as much as I can find in these forums and around the web but haven't seen this as a problem. Any feedback would be appreciated.
If I run the system stability test on my system, and add the GPU, I get severe lag. Basically the screen appears to refresh every 1 or 2 seconds, and so the mouse jumps around the screen. It made clicking the Stop button pretty tricky. Anyway, I know its designed to push the GPU to its limits, but I haven't experienced lag like that when benchmarking in Heaven or 3DMark. All the benchmark scores in Heaven and 3DMark are pretty much on the money for my card, so I'm just wondering why I'm having issues here? My card is a Zotac GTX 1070 Mini (no OC). Or is this behavior expected when running the stress test?
The System Stability Test
Dragolar posted a topic in General DiscussionHi, I have but together a new PC, so i thought i would find the over-clock limit of my old PC I finished some stability tests after over-clocking my old PC. I tested it with Intel Burn Test and Prime95, both went without any errors. Both have been going for several hours each. So i thought i test with Aida64, but after 7 min. with Aida64 System stability test, i got BSOD. if i lower BCLK the Aida64 Stress test goes just fine. (I don't dare increase voltage anymore) If it's unstable, shouldn't both Intel Burn Test and Prime95 detect that? I also noted that the temp got a few degrees higher with Aida64, than the two other tests. 65C. After 7 min of Aida 64, vs. 63C on both Intel Burn Test and Prime95 after hours. (read all temps with Aida64 if that matters at all, not that 2 degrees DOES matter ). So I'm left wondering if Aida64 is better to test stability and temp than the other two, or is it just that my PC don't like the Aida64 stress test? I wont bother trying to get 12h of Aida64 stress test flawlessly, if its just some weird hiccup from Aida64 (get BSOD every time i try it, and only with AIDA64) Or if they have just made the best torture test, my hats of to the Aida64 team Or i just have to conclude that my computer have developed a sense of humor, and wants to fu** with me And if Aida64 Stress Test is better, should i just skip Intel Burn Test and Prime95 in the future? Everywhere i read people recommends mainly Intel Burn Test or Prime95 and a few others. Never seen Aida64 been recommended. Anyone else noticed any of this?
