My PC changes to themes when I run Prime95 Tags: CPUs Windows 7 Last response: January 17, 2013 4:15 AM in CPUs Share andy_pandy January 16, 2013 11:51:27 PM I was running Prime95 and 30 min into the test the Windows theme changes from Windows 7 Aero theme to Windows 7 Basic theme. Than, it changes to Aero to Basic. Vice versa... Is this normal? Does this happen to anyone else? I don't get any errors or warning ... This is the setting my running Prime95 under: Toture test settings: Min FFT size(in K) 128 Max FFT size(in K) 5000 Memory (in MB) to use 6000 CPU: AMd FX 8350 4GHZ ( Stock, not overclocked) GPU: AMD 6870 (not overclocked) RAM: 8GB Corsair Dual Channel Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 PSU: XFX 450W Samsung 830 128GB SSD 500GB Wester Digital OS: Windows 8 More about : themes run prime95 | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Reply to andy_pandy Register or log in to remove ChilledGrease January 17, 2013 2:27:55 AM Yeah, it is normal. Windows automatically shifts away from Aero if it thinks there's a shortage of RAM | Report abuse Reply to ChilledGrease twelve25 CPUs Authority January 17, 2013 4:15:15 AM The default is to have windows automatically pick the display settings for best performance. If it bugs you, you can go in and check adjust for best appearance and it will stay there. | Report abuse Reply to twelve25 Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>My PC changes to themes when I run Prime95> Related ressources: ForumHow long to run prime95 ?
