AIDA64 Discussion Forum

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi, I have never had any issues with my pc in the last 2 years. I currently own a i7-9700k, 32 gb of 3200 Ram, Gtx 1080 ti 11GB, Nzxt Kraken X52, Aorus z370 Gaming 3 Motherboard (latest f15b drivers), 4 120mm cpu fnas for intake and 2 for outake. I currently run my cpu at 4.6-4.7 all cores, no extra OC. PSU 850 80 plus Gold
      So my usual temps are around 35c on idle and 65-75c under load. The other day I notices after a session of gaming that my cpu max temps had gone up to around 85c. It was weird as it had never happened. So I decided to do a couple stress tests to monitor results. So first I tested Linpack and at about 7 min through the test the cpu frequency dropped to 800mhz for a second and went back up to 4600. Cpu was under 100% load and temps where as high as 90-98c.
      So I ran Aida64 and after about 10 min the same thing happened. Only with Aida the temps weren't that high. Gpu temps where stable across the board, no issues whatoever.
      So I am no expert, and I need help as to why this may happen.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help and let me know if there is more info I can provide.

      Hi, I am sorry if this topic is already here.
      About memory card..either internal or external, details in Aida64.
      Can we see details for memory e.g maker (manufacturer), speed, serial number etc? As for now i think we can only see capacity.
      Sorry again if i missed look about that function in the apps, but already check, none available.
       
      Thank you dev for the great apps.

      There are so many temperatures are showing in thermal how can I know that what is my CPU temperature?

      Hello everybody!
      First time posting to the forum, indeed it is my first time viewing the forum.  Ive been using the Engineer version of Aida64 (registered) for about 3 months now, and overall Im impressed with the software.  Its nice to just throw together a few different benchmarks and have them run how and when I want in the order I want.  I was doing all this with macros before
      Ive recently gotten back into building PCs, took a long hiatus back in the late 90s my last system having been assembled was a 440BX based chipset on an Abit motherboard, both of which no longer exist at least in a meaningful way lol.  I was an OC neophyte back then, as I am now, although I do enjoy the hobby/sport(?)
      I decided to wade into the dark and murky waters of RAM OCing, and went down that rabbit hole for a few weeks.  Long story short, I bought 2 x 16GB sticks of G.Skill 3600mhz XMP mem.  Stock timings sucked at 19-20-20-40-500 but I didnt know or care much about timings at the point I bought and assembled the system and so didnt realize their huge impact (relatively speaking) on ram performance.
      I was able to get them to post at 4000mhz 17-22-22-36-485 and ran that for a few months, then last night got the idea to try and tweak them some more, thinking maybe all these on off cycles might have trained them to do better (i dont know if that logic is incorrect or not in regards to training, but its how I justified another sweaty night of swearing out loud and smashing keys to my wife)
      Im now resting at 4000mhz 16-22-22-40-500 but I can feel they have more to give in the timings department.  Frankly, im already amazed at how well these Hynix CJR chips are doing on the OC.  My question is basically, Aida shows me as being first place in Latency, and near top tier in every memory bench, with only quad channel or server boards (mostly) beating me.  Are these results typical for these chips and my rig?  What can I do to push it further if anybody has any recommendations?  And am I correct in feeling a sense of accomplishment at being in the top spot for latency, or is my joy tragically misplaced?
      Thanks a lot guys, and to the Devs, great product and I will continue to use and support you!
