System Stabilty Tests Error During "Stress FPU"

Recommended Posts

Howdy, all.  I've been having some unexplained game crashes, and have spent the last two days digging into things.  All hardware tested good, so I rolled back my Nvidia drivers and thought all was well.  But I had a few more crashes, so bought Aida64.  I started the System Stability Test and it instantly failed.  Working the options I narrowed it down to the "Stress FPU" test, which throws a "Hardware Failure" error within seconds (see image).

When I tried to confirm this with the Intel Process Diagnostic Tool everything passes, including the floating point tests.

Does anyone have advice on different tests where I can confirm Aida's results?

Update - seems most "gaming" motherboards enable some kind of overclocking by default.  When I disabled the "ASUS Performance Enhancement 3.0" I was able to complete the Stress FPU test.

This still does not explain why Aida64 was the only tool to diagnose any kind of FPU error...
