Prime95 bug?

Last response: in Overclocking

I'm running the "Blend" test in Prime95, and after a long time, the program crashes. The test doesn't fail, <i>the entire program actually GPFs</i>.

The system is stable. Memtest86 works fine for over 70 hours straight. Every other benchmark I've tried runs fine. Running the In-place large FFT test in Prime95 runs indefinitely without error. I've tried rolling back the system to conservative settings: 200FSB, default voltage, 3-4-4-8, no PAT, and yet the "Blend" problem still occurs.

There's no way I can believe that my system is not stable at nominal settings. I'm thinking this is a bug in Prime95. What do you think?

I understand there is bug which afflicts those with ram 1024, like you. I've also heard there is a newer version of Prime95 to take care of said bug. Since I only have 512, I haven't paid too much attention, but if you're not already familiar with it, you may want to check into it.

Good Luck

Wish I could help....I have 1GB of RAM...but I can never get the program to run for more than a few minutes usually. If your system is stable, don't worry.

Maxtor disgraces the six letters that make Matrox.
