Cache stress test crashes pc


Recommended Posts

Hello there.


A friend told me Aida64 was the best tool to perform tests on overclocked computers as well as on stock ones, so I decided to test on some old pcs we have at work to recover.

This said, one of the pcs crashes with an instant blue screen when running cache stress test.

I was wondering if this is the CPU cache and if so will the CPU have the same issue with another board?

I just want to make sure it's not the motherboard with some problem.


Pc's a Pentium D 945 3.4GHz

foxconn board P4M800P7MB-RS2H

Hitachi sata 3.0 82GB hdd

using onboard graphics


All other tests alone kept temperatures inside the normal values.


Keep up the good job.

It could be due a number of issues. CPU cache malfunction, CPU hardware failure, RAM CRC error, motherboard failure, power supply unit failure, too excessive CPU overclocking, too strict memory timings configured, an overheating system component, etc.

I'd try updating the motherboard BIOS first, then restoring all BIOS Setup settings to their default values. If it doesn't help, then check the temperatures and voltages both idle under load. If they show no issues, then you will need to try replacing parts one by one. It's not easy to diagnose such issues remotely though :(
