Hello,
I just installed two stickes of 8 gb of Corsair 1333mhz ram. I ran a stress test using Prime95. I ran for about 30 minutes and one of the worker stopped working. Here is the log.
[Apr 20 18:49] Worker starting

Also i am running a Alienware M17x with a 2630k intel i7 cpu.
Please help me as I am in need of an answer.

Thanks

That would be the processor overheating.

Just curious why would you run such a stress test on a laptop..The cooling isn't all that and your running a mega hot cpu

I have an M17x R3 (same laptop as the OP, I just have a different CPU). The cooling in the R3 is as good as it gets in a laptop, there is something else at work here

far better. They are also twice the price, are much bigger, and have a power adapter the size of a small child
