cpu puzzle for ya, got an i5 quad core here keeps crashing (blue screening etc) it runs fine with 2 cores disabled on board one and 1 core disabled on board 2, no signs of overheating (temp is usually 25C), runs fine with all 4 if i set the clock down from 32 to 22 speed stepping and turbo both turned off has no effect.. any ideas?
i used to think two of the cores were damaged now it looks more like a stability type issue, its as though there sharing a pooled resource
comes from a Zoostorm 7877-0095
Intel Core i5-2320 3.0Ghz processor
More about :intel strange behavior runs cores clocked
Might want to look into the PSU. Could be supplying dodgy voltages. Do you know the PSU make and model?
Thanks for your response
its just the stock psu, i believe i already tried this, but ill check again with a better psu, also i figure ill try if i can go with faster with three cores... if i can it would confirm that some shared resource is the cause based on frequency, i would expect it to be stable at 2.8/2.9ghz.. could the fsb to blame... i only changed down the clock speed though so this would be operating at its stock frequency i assume...
