Is it normal to freeze durring stability stress test?


Recommended Posts

I was overclocking x3440 (1gen i7 basicly on lga 1156) Cinebench runs went fine, so i went to aida64, and while doing it i tried to use chrome and browse the net, but the system would freeze and i needed to restart, played with voltages and downclocked but still, so i cleared cmos went to default settings, run aida and started browsing on chrome, but the mouse would freeze for 20 sec, and than unfreeze back to normal (didnt crash like before with OC).

Am i supposed not to touch mouse durring stress test? Is it normal to freeze? Or it shoudln't freeze/crash in any case meaning my system is unstable?

Freezing, in case it's not due to a system lockup (system crash) is normal when you have the memory stress test enabled and you've got 32 or more GigaBytes of RAM installed. Windows can get quite busy and unresponsive when a certain running program is allocating almost the entire system memory for itself.  As soon as the memory is fully allocated, the freezing should go away though.
