I recently built my new rig and I am running some stress tests on my system to ensure stability. Everything works fine when using Asus' ROG RealBench software but when I use AIDA64 I start running into issues. The first time I ran AIDA64 I ran the stress test with stock preferences and settings for the trial version and the CPU, FPU, Cache, Memory, and GPU boxes checked. The test ran for 4 1/2 hours before a hardware failure was detected. I then tried running the test again and this time it only lasted 20 minutes. I then unchecked the 'Stress GPU' box and tried again, and it only lasted about 20 minutes again. I am now running the test without the 'Stress Memory' box checked as well now (leaving only CPU, FPU, and Cache left checked) and it's been 2 hours with no faults yet.

 

My guess is that it has something to do with my RAM, but I have no idea as to why or how. And if it is my RAM causing issues, is it a fatal error or will I be ok and I should just move on? Is there anything I can do to fix this? I am including some screen shots of my system specs and numbers.

 

On the picture with the red circle around my RAM speed, just ignore that, my memory is actually running at 3000 (I am using G. Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3000 RAM) as you can see in the CPU-Z pics. On the screenshot of my BIOS settings, on the line for my DRAM Frequency, that has also been changed to Auto instead of [DDR4-3000 30x10...]

 

Let me know if I need to provide any more info. I do not really know how to use AIDA64 so this is new to me.

 

 

 

UPDATE: The stress test on the CPU, FPU, and Cache has been running for 11 hours now. I am now fairly certain that my hardware failure had to do with my memory during it's stress test. Will this cause a problem later on or should I just leave it alone?

 

 

 

UPDATE 2: Sadly the stress test failed at 11 hours 28 minutes. I'm not really sure what I should try next. Screenshots of failed test is now also attached. Any tips on what I can do to make this more stable would be much appreciated.

You can try the following to resolve the issue, which seems to be related to the memory or cache subsystem:

1) Update the motherboard BIOS

2) Re-check all memory timings to make sure they match the values G.Skill recommends

3) If none above helps, it may be best to lower the memory clock and/or to use more relaxed memory timings. Sometimes a simple change like upping the Command Rate (tCR) from 1T to 2T can do magic ;)

I personally would never trust a setup that generates hardware failure errors in any stress test software.

      I am using the latest AIDA64 Engineer 5.99.4900.
      My motherboard model is ASUS Z10PE-D16 WS,the sensor type is shown as Nuvoton NCT6779D/5535D (ISA 290h),this is correct, but the fan speed cannot be read and the motherboard temperature and CPU temperature display errors(In the BIOS, the temperature is correct and the fan speed is displayed normally).
      Specific as shown.

      Hi guys don't know if this is the right section where to post my problem but i'll try
      I have a server that few months ago has started to gave me the attached error on the event viewer under te system registry(event error.PNG); the error says "The FinalWire AIDA64 Kernel Driver service failed to start for the following error : The driver loading has been blocked"
      the problem is as you can see on the program.PNG image i don't have AIDA64 installed on this server.
      i've tried to look for the C:\program folder ; the services; on the regedit ; on the task scheduler and on the statup program but i haven't found it anywhere.
      Thanks in advice for the help

      Hi, I've met a issue with the FPU stress test, the system would crash instantly when I click the "Start" buttom
      it was ok to run a solo CPU stress test over 2 hour, but I just dont understand why it went wrong when conducting the FPU test. Any Ideas?
      many thanks!
      I've attached a AIDA64 report of my mobo

      MOBO:R6A
