My new PC is restarting itself in the middle of test 3 on Prime95. Currently, nothing is overclocked. I just finished the build late last night and am testing for stability before I start bumping up the voltages. Here are the two messages I get from the logs:
The PC Build is below. At idle, my CPU runs at 33 degrees, during the Prime95 test, the hotest it got was 50 degrees but mostly stayed around 47 degrees. Im using a thermaltake ultra 120 extreme heatsink on the CPU.
Any thoughts? My first thought is to run Memtest, which I will probably do next.
NB Core 1.23 V
SB Core 1.52 V
DDR2 Term 0.93 V
Memory 1.86 V
I think the memory voltage is low since the website for the Patriot Extreme Performance memory states it runs at 2.2 V, but I wanted to test it before I started bumping it up.
knocked memory voltage up to 2.2 V and it seems to be running Prime95 great. In fact, the CPU temp dropped three degrees under load.
After I let this run for awhile I will probably start bumping the CPU up a little. Any suggestions on where to start and what temp you guys think I should try to stay under for my build? The build details are above.
Bumped my memory voltage up to 2.2 V and ran Prime95 for 14 hours before I stopped it. No errors. Heading out to my parents for Christmas so I will try and overclock the system once I get back from Christmas.
For overclocking, its really just guess and check.
Up clock a little until it resets or you cant Post etc.
Then up vCore until stable and then up again
You can look at Comps. Temp sticky at the top,
I believe yours is good below 70 and dont go higher than 1.5vCore
Can you just increase the voltage without affecting the video card in any way? The reason I ask is b/c I have two BFG Tech BFGR88768GTXOC2E GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP in my PC that are factory overclocked. These video cards are to expensive to burn up.
