Processor

Hi All,

Im experiencing some random reboots on my machine and was hoping you could give me a hand
I ran test on the HD, and Mem and both passed. I believe i have pinpointed the problem to my processor but am not 100% certain.

Here is some info:
OS: Windows 7
CPU: C2D Wolfdale E8500 3.16GHZ - (Not OC'd)
Stepping: A
Voltage: 1.25 (stock)

I tested it first using Intel Burn Test v2.5
This fails after about 2 minutes states my cpu was unstable and to check my cooling and adjust overclock. I havent OC'd at all. And my temps never broke 52C (using speedfan) during the whole test. So im not sure where it gets that info.

Im now running Orthos and its been running fine for 3hrs now with my temps again not breaking 52c using speedfan.

Is the Intel tool reliable than Orthos tool? Is there a tool out there that is more reliable than the two?

Any info is much appreciated.

  1. It could be your PSU, what model is it?
  2. Hi Tim, thx for the quick reply.

    Here is a link to my PSU
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171032

    About a year and a half old.
  3. Just a FYI i found the issue. I had to increase my memory voltage by .15v. After doing that all tests pass fine.
  4. In all honesty..Pure luck lol.. I couldn't find a single thing wrong wth my CPU. I swapped it into another machine and it passed all tests. Same with my memory. So i just started upping voltage. Bumped my cpu a bit, still no go. Next came mem, and BAM all tests passed fine. I reduce my cpu back to stock and still no issues. How bizarre is that tho?

    Motherboards don't always provide proper voltage, really not that bizarre if you've worked with enough computers.
