It's at -.05v right now. It may not be much, but I wanted to do what I can to make it run a little bit cooler and draw a little bit less power. It's also psychologically satisfying to say "undervolted 4GHz"...

I've almost hit the 12 hour mark in Prime95. Soon it will be crunching again. :rockout:

I'm a little torn right now. I've passed the 12 hour mark, but I really want 24 to be really sure... which turns into around 42 hours really, as I work this weekend. If I do that (feeling like I probably will, so I know the rig is rock solid) WCG gets installed no later than Saturday night, given it doesn't crash. At that point though it ought to be good for 24/7 running.
I'm sure it'll be perfectly fine but then the only possible problem you might have is IF it crashed after 23 hours 55 minutes and 23 seconds, would you consider it not stable? I'm all for a bit of overkill, but I think that personally your wasting your time with testing it that long. As mentioned before, I've stress tested things for hours, then would run Boinc for 5 minutes and I'd have work units crashing... Stability can be a funny thing :)

With Prime95, are you running a Blend test or small FFTs? :)

I would consider it unstable then, yes. I'm running the blend test, which is one reason why I want to put such a great length of time on it. It's my understanding that the blend test combines those small and large FFTs together in one test, so I want to give it plenty of time to hit everything, especially after prime95 gave me a BSOD where Linpack Xtreme did not. Also, this is going to be my baseline. I really wanted 4GHz stable, with an undervolt even, and it looks like I got that, but these are now tried and true settings to work off of in the future. While I'm thrilled with 4GHz, it's a very low overclock for a 2600k. There's room for more later on if I ever want to push it.

While we're talking about testing, I'm thinking about OCCT again. I'm not interested in the Linpack test, because Linpack Xtreme is probably better (especially with the bootable Linux option) but the regular CPU test. I'm sure it's fine after Linpack, bootable Linux Linpack, and prime95 forever, but it's in the back of my mind...

There's the 24 hour mark. I'm gonna launch OCCT before going to bed, then work, so that should be roughly 16 hours of that. I expect it to pass, but I also expected Prime95 to pass after it passed Linpack Xtreme... just want to cover all the bases here.

So I've had the rig for a couple days now and put it through its paces. It passed everything I threw at it. I don't intend to spend a month throwing every stability test ever created at it, so I'm giving it my stamp of approval after it passed a bunch of Linpack Xtreme (both in Windows, and some in the Linux bootable), 24 hours Prime95, and then 16 hours OCCT. WCG will be on this machine within the hour. :toast:

That said, how many hours of testing have you done with the CPU? :)

And when is the upcoming challenge? Know I seen the dates on here but I'm to lazy to try and find them again. LOLOL


Edit: Oh wow, just realized I received my "long service" badge! Must have been yesterday. :peace:

Probably 50 hours or so... maybe a little more given that prime95 did crash during my first attempt. Needed a tad more voltage, but it is still undervolted.

Could have just tried it crunching for 50 hours ;) But I get the idea of wanting to make sure it's completely stable :)
