Default good 1 day/bad another?

I ran orthos for 8hrs and everything was fine and is fine... ther computer runs great. I decided to run the program again today since we were gone for the day and the stress test only ran for an hour than locked the computer up. What gives??? nothings changed and the system runs fine.... why would it lock up and not give me the same results?

the only change I can see is, I ran Orthos at stress test "1" and I think last time it was at "10".


thanks

Sadly, that's one of the disadvantages of Orthos/Prime95. They can take a looooooong time to hit the bad combinations, and it's entirely possible to get errors in the tenth and twentieth hours and beyond. Or in the first half hour. You never know for sure.

IMO running p95 or any stress testing program for 8 hours is just overkill. Taking the stability test too far. My q6600 @ 3890 won't make a half hour without tossing me an error in any of those tests, yet has never failed on me in real usage, video encoding or 8 hour game sessions. I use everyday usage as my yardstick, not burning up the FPU's in the proccessor.

i ran the intel stress test which they say is the best of the best and the most "torturious" on the cpu's.. Cpu got up to 64 degrees (max).




apparetnly the numbers are supposed to match which they do.... so I dont know...



and could someone please move this thread for some dumb reason i posted it here in the WC section...... im sorry

Yes, it's entirely possible that it's overkill in your case. It boils down to how stable you want your system. For my part, I want at least a fairly strong guarantee that, when I finally run into a problem, I can eliminate my hardware setup as one of the causes.

Point in case: Right now, Far Cry 2 keeps crashing and going wonky on me, and I have yet to verify the exact cause. But at the very least, I happen to know that my system is stable through 24hrs memtest, 6hrs OCCT, 16hrs Prime95, and 6hrs Furmark. So at this point, I can eliminate my system as the cause with a reasonable degree of certainty. Overkill? Perhaps. But it has its uses at times.
