Prime95 running at 92% load?

Recommended Posts

Hey all I'm running Prime95 to test the stability of my 980x on a 4.4ghz overclock.

I started a blend test Im planning to leave on for 24 hours, i noticed it did start at 100% load. When I set it this afternoon temps were fairly good hovering around the early 70's (ambient temp at the moment is hot in Sydney, around 32 degrees tonight). Coming home tonight noticed its sitting on a fairly constant 92% load. What gives?

Is this a sign of just not enough vcore? Test has been running now about 4 hours, 20 minutes.

 

I'll post a pic up with all details, but basically running 31 multiplier with HT on, 143 blck, 1.35V CPU, 1.25 QPI and my Ram at its rated speed. All specs are in my sig.

 

Let me know what you think, im a little puzzled.

could it be that one of the cores has stopped working? (due to high temps or unstable oc)

 

try taskmanager for the loads to see if one of the cores has less activity then the rest.

Your right it did stop working, not a full core though, just one thread. What does this mean? I thought Prime95 would detect this

Sorry didnt mention I did run intelburn test with 10 passes, and it passed.

 

Anyone got some insight to why its dropping a thread as it gets into the test on prime?

10 tests is lame. 20 tests is the minimum for intelburn test.

 

lol like it even matters how long you are running the test >.> if you run it half an hour it should be fine cause no game asks 6 cores anyway.

Lol I know that this might not be stable, I'm just looking for help to get it stable in regard to my setup? I haven't had a chance to up the volts a small increment since I'm working, is this the most likely reason it failed?

Really now. I could easily pass 10 tests on Intelburn test with my old E7200 back in the day. With 20 it would fail. It does matter how long you run tests. Runnin Prime95 for 8 hours will be good for gaming stability, if you pass 30 minutes but fail in 1 hour or even 2 your going to get crashes in games every now and then.

 

Anyways, yes try to increase volts a little bit.
