  1. I used whatever the Prime95 torture test is at by default, the thing is it can pass Memtest86 at these settings as well, which hits the memory harder than PCMark.
  2. Well, I can run the main test fine, but if I run the memory tests I get a blue screen or frozen pc. It passes MemTest86+ and Prime95 and whatever else I throw at it, it even handles the read portion of the PCMark memory benches, but when it gets to the write parts, it BSODs or freezes. Should I consider my system stable and that this is just some sort of anomaly? TIA.
  3. true, plus for some reason the best stability test ive seen for my pc is the code creatures benchmark, if that runs i know im stable, if it doesnt i know im not. The funny thing is ive prime95'd for 24 hours before but would get blue screens after 2 days on the pc, so then i ran codecreatures and it wouldnt run, it froze. it seems that 256 1:1 works 24+ hours prime95 and passes code creatures where 256 9:10 didnt pass cc so im staying where i am.
  4. Alliteration aside, my question is which would it be better to run at, 256 FSB 1:1 memory divider with 2.5-3-3-8 timings with a CPU multiplier of 10 or 256 FSB 9:10 memory divider with 2-3-2-6 timings with the same CPU multiplier of 10.
  5. Well, I am stable at 256*10 for 2.56ghz which is fine with me, especially since I'm down to 1.54v vCore from 1.62v.
  6. Another thing I'm concerned about is the CPU voltage I'm running, 1.45v * 113% so it is around 1.62v vCore. Is this a problem? Compared to most people I seem to have a low OC for such a high voltage.
  7. I'm beginning to think it might be the memory controller on this chip, I got a really bad overclocking chip and the memory controller sucks. Im gonna try at 255*10, if this doesnt work I may drop back down to 236*11 and try to decrease the latencies on the RAM.
  8. and this time i got 2 and a half hours. damn it all.
  9. Ok, new BIOS, 704-2bta and new Prime95 gave me 8 hours, gonna lower the FSB to 259 and see what I get.
  10. I used the settings on OCZ's forum and I also memtest86ed it and nothing came up for the RAM.
  11. Well, I got new RAM after my board killed 2 sets of VX, I'm now running OCZ PC4200 Platinum and running it at 260*10 for 2600 mhz or about what my CPU could handle with the VX. My problem is that I cannot run Prime95 for more than 5:30 before a fatal error occurs whether I am using the 6-23 BIOS or the new 11-14 or whatever it is BIOS. I even bumped down to 259*10 which is 6 MHZ lower on the CPU than what ran stable on Prime95 forever. Any help is appreciated.
  12. Well, just so I can cover all bases is there anything else anyone else who has experienced this problem?
