BSOD playing CSGO and stress test with prime95

Q: BSOD playing CSGO and stress test with prime95


At first thank you for your time.
I am getting crashes when playing game like CSGO or when stress testing with prime 95(blend test/torture test threads =4).

While playing csgo it sometimes just freezes and then csgo isn't working anymore, if i then check the system log file i get WHEA warningslike: A corrected hardware error has occurred. Reported by component: Processor Core.
But sometimes it also freezes my whole pc and then when i check the windows-system logbook i see this error:
Your computer restarts, and a critical error message that resembles the following is recorded in the event log:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Event ID: 41
Level: Critical
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

And when i Stress test with Prime 95, it will test like 5/10 minutes and my 4 cpu's get to 91 degrees C, and then it will crash. And on the next startup i have this error:

BCCode: 3b
BCP1: 00000000C0000005
BCP2: FFFFF8000339DFE4
BCP3: FFFFF880086EE920
BCP4: 0000000000000000
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

I have also uploaded my DM LOG, please help me because i really can not find a solution myself, thank you

Preferred Solution: BSOD playing CSGO and stress test with prime95

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hmm, this is really a failing CPU. This could be a bad cooler or a failing CPU. I'd try to replace the cooler and see if that works.

I've been getting BSOD the last couple of months, lately much more frequently.
The error code is 0x00000124 and ntoskrnl.exe+75bc0
I used to get it only once every 2 weeks or once a week. Lately I've been getting it more, maybe once a day. But been playing more Battlefield 4 also compared to before.

Thinks I've tried to fix it:
Tested Memory with Memtest86+
Tested Memory with Prime95 Blend
Tested Memory with HCI
Tested Graphics Card with Furmark
Swapped Graphics card with my dad, he got the same one as me 7970, still bluescreens.
Used my PC with only a single memory module, tried both modules, both time still BSOD.
Drivers are updated (motherboard, soundcard, videocard)
BIOS is latest version.

Temperatures are okay 75-77 celcius while running stress test, nothing is overclocked.
I don't know anything about voltages so I never touched that.
I just made a picture with my phone of my voltage settings in BIOS

When I run Prime95 with small FFTs I get a bluescreen within 5minutes. So I'm thinking motherboard or CPU. When I play Battlefield 4 I can play for 1-5hours till I get one, sometimes more, it's random.

Would be awesome if someone could help me out.

Here's my specs also:

Gigabyte p67a-d3-b3
2x Corsair XMS 4GB DDR3-1333 (8GB total)
i7 2600k
Club 3D 7970 RoyalKing
650W Be Quiet! PSU
Creative XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro Soundcard
Samsung 840 Pro SSD 250GB
Samsung 1TB HD
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Thank you.

A:BSOD during Battlefield 4 or Prime95 small FFTs stress test

I ran some more tests with Prime95 today. Ran all 3 tests (Blend, Small FFTs and Large FFTs), each for 15min. No BSOD but I get in all 3 tests a error: FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4

Edit: Sorry, should've edited starting post instead of a reply.

I remember about two months ago I was doing stress testing just to test the stability of my computer. Whenever I did a test that tested a lot of RAM, the test would fail within minutes and it would say "Execution Halted.."

Just recently I did an RMA with kingston and they sent me 2 brand new sticks of RAM which I installed. I just now got around to testing again but the test still fails within minutes - I am stumped.

Is it possible my memory controller / motherboard is bad? The RAM is brand new.

I've been having blue screens for a long time now and I'm clueless at this point. I have replaced my hard drive, GPU, Motherboard, RAM and my OS. My most common blue screens are "a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" and "an uncorrectable hardware error was encountered". I play a lot of Dota 2, and it usually BSOD's within 1-2 games.

Ive tried updating all the drivers to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Some of the things ive done thus far are a reimage, ram test, tested video cards separately, and run a whole slew of stress test that blue screen and point to video or some other driver causing the video to crash I think. I've included the SF tool zip.

Hello guys,

I was doing a prime95 test to see if my system is stable or not and it errored within 5 minutes of the test and then I received a BSOD saying IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I am not sure what the values are but I checked the event viewer and it says

I ran memtest86+ for 24 hrs and got no error.

I've look around in the forums and google and can't seem to locate what the problem really is. I did not overclock anything in my computer.

I also tried running prime95 small FFT test, and no errors was presented after about two hrs. When I tried the blend test again however, it errored very quickly and another bsod showed up saying:

I have a gut feeling you may have a bad stick of ram being the blend test works very closely with ALL of your ram in your machine.

have you had any issues with ram not being reported properly?

Basically this is a new system, however it does not come with a modem - the modem is required because they use dial-up. So my customer purchased one of his own, ever since the laptop has been experiancing a 0xA bsod. When the usb jack is not plugged in we still experiance the bsod.
The jack is a Zoom 56K Modem Series 1063 - we installed the 64bit drivers seeing as we have a 64bit OS here.

I debugged the dump files myself and received two process names:

- Windows 7 Pro x64
- This is the original Acer installation of Windows

- What is the age of system (hardware)? System was purchased on Feb. 1st 2012
- Age of installation is fresh - barely even a month old

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Iv been having problems with running certain steam games over the last 6 months, the problem has been bad as of late. Im afraid it might be due to hardware failure as a stress test I was running with Hot cpu lite ended up in BSOD after 4.5 hours. Below is the dump file, If someone who knows what it means can tell me if I need new hardware I would much appreciate it.

A while ago my computer started freezing when I was playing games. What happens is that my monitor loses video feed and turns black, the sound starts stuttering, and I have to restart. This happens with games like Bad Company 2 and the Crysis 2 demo. With Crysis 2, it freezes within 10 mins of gameplay every time. Memory dump indicates a 124 error, which is traditionally a hardware problem.

I've run a variety of stress tests on cpu, gpu, and memory and there are never freezes or errors. Nothing is overclocked. If it is indeed a hardware problem then I don't understand why it doesn't show up during stress tests. Could it be some kind of driver issue or something to do with memory that only happens when gaming?

Other things I've tried:

Opened case for airflow
Fresh windows install
Increasing voltage to cpu or memory
Removed sound card and used onboard sound
Uninstalled antivirus program
Flashed motherboard bios
Installed earlier video drivers

My specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate edition 64-bit
Core 2 Duo E8400
Asus P5Q Pro
Radeon 4870
Asus Xonar Dx

Anyone have any suggestions short of switching out parts? Thanks.

Hi all, can someone help me "decode" this BSOD I got while stress testing under Orthos? Seems my CPU won't let me overclock to 3.2-3.4 even though people have got higher FSBs than I did. Hoping this BSOD will tell me whats the problem...thanks, sorry for the short post, I'll reply when someone answers.

A:Overclocking Stress Test BSOD?


Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Read other 1 answers

Hello all! I've been getting random crashing/freeze's while gaming since I bought this pc. I did some research and it took me to prim95, I got the same BSOD error I do when my pc is under heavy load. "CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT".... I've looked into this error and read it could be the cause of a faulted core in my cpu. I've a i7-5820K cpu "not over clocked in anyway, 3.3 max" and a gtx 980 to match. 16gb of ram. Not sure on the ram sticks but I could find out, though I don't think it has anything to do with my ram. It worries me that doing the stress test my pc crashed with that error in less then 15-30 seconds. Could this be my cpu? I've specy and my temps, even under heavy load are normal. I don't think it's temps make my pc crash. My cpu is watercooled. I'm new the fourms and I may not have posted this post correctly, I'm just desperate fellas. Spent around $2500 total on this rig. I need help! Thanks you. -conx

A:Computer crashing immediately after stress testing with Prime95

If you ran the Prime95 Blend test, then it's most likely a RAM issue (although the CPU cache and memory controller are stressed to a lesser degree)..
Try running MemTest86+:  http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html
Also try running the rest of these hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

I installed a new monitor and problem starts when "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" issue constantly appears. So I updated my AMD Catalyst Control Center and the issue stopped. I tried playing a game (CSGO), then after a few minutes, BSOD occurs. Everytime i start windows normally, after a few minutes, BSOD will happen. I uninstalled my AMD CCC (including the display driver) then BSOD stopped. But when i reinstalled my everything, BSOD happens again and again. Need Help Thanks!

I've had this build for over a year and have been playing both CSGO and GTA with no problems for quite a while. The first BSOD came whilst using the shadow play feature that Nvidia offers. I turned shadow play off and did a fresh install of Nvidia Experience and updated the drivers for my GPU (Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 ti). This seemed to work for about a a day or two and then I had another BSOD. Since then I have been experiencing BSOD irregularly. Sometimes I can play any game for hours with no problem, other times I have BSOD as soon as I start the game up. I've checked for memory errors, updated the GPU driver, scanned for malware and I'm still at a loss. Would greatly appreciate any insight. Thank you

A potential power surge crippled my PSU, and so I replaced it. Later discovered that a fan was dead on my GPU and the hard drives were potentially dying. Replaced both of them. I've now reinstalled windows and will have BSODs whenever I am stressing the system. I've checked CrystalDisk, and all seems to be well there. Recently, I also lost the use of my Ethernet port. I'm wondering if more hardware needs to be replaced?

Attached are my crash dumps and PC build.

Hm.. well you should be able to hit 3.6 GHz decently easy.. and with less volts than that. I can hit that with my Quad on those volts. I know all chips are different. but you should be able to hit that..

Have you tried loosening the RAM timings.. have you done anything with ram to Rule the RAM out first? changed Divider or something.

Hi guys,

I am new to the forums and I hope that doesn't stop me from getting help from you guys. I have been on this BSOD case for 2 months now and today I have tried many things to stop it from happening.


MoBo: Asus P8Z68v pro gen-3
Core: Intel i7 2600K (OC'd to 4.7ghz)
RAM: 16gb G skill ram (4x4gb)
Video Card: EVGA GTX680 2gb
PSU: Corsair GS800 (800w)
Cooling: Corsair H100
Standard DVD drive (sorry not sure what it is but it might be in the report, ripped out of my old PC)
SSD: Corsair Force GT3 120gb
HHD(s): 1tb WD caviar green and WD 650gb (sorry unknown type, ripped it out of my old PC)


I built this PC from scratch about a year ago, and it recently started to BSOD more frequently, prior to the last two months I had probably about 2 BSODs through out the year. This did not concern me as errors do occur and they were not frequent. However as of late, I had BSOD's on a daily base while gaming, possibly from once a day to maybe 4~ a day. I have deduced that it is a hardware error BSOD, and it only happens while the system is under a heavy load.

Hey all,

So lately in the past couple weeks outta nowhere I've been not being able to play CSGO because it will just crash and BSOD after a while of playing (like 10-30 minutes). However, while playing any other game like Overwatch or Rust it doesn't crash at all and the BSOD issue doesn't occur. So I just decided "fine, I won't play CSGO", but now it just happened whilst browsing the internet a couple weeks after CSGO bsod became a regular thing. I have the dump files and this is a formal request for help, so thanks to anyone that reads the files and can give me any info on what I can do. Thank you

Hi, I'm new to this forum so apologies for not providing all relevant info right away.
The issue I'm having is that my computer will BSOD randomly while playing games such as CSGO, Civilization V and Europa Universalis IV. The time I play before a BSOD occurs seems random, although its usually before 30 minutes of gameplay.
In other instances, my computer simply turns off without warning, and then restarts itself without even presenting a BSOD. Attached is the BSOD file I've been instructed to upload. Any help would be much appreciated

If I need to provide any other details just say the word.

I've been getting a BSOD on this machine pretty sporadically for about two years and trying to get to the bottom of it. It always seemed to be when I was working on Photoshop or some other resource intensive application, and fairly rarely. But today I got the BSOD three times.

I'm thinking it may be related to inadequate power, but not entirely sure.

The stop code is: 0x00000124.

I've ran the following tests:
Chkdsk /r on the 4 drives
RealTemp looks good

I've checked to make sure all drivers are updated, and looks good there. Only thing left I can think of is that it's not getting enough power, but not sure how to test for that.

I attached the memory.dmp, but unable to interpret the report from Windbg (pasted below). Any thoughts on how I can fix this once and for all?

Appreciate the help in advance.

My PC started crashing suddenly after installing Windows 10. I obviously thought it was fault of the OS so I reinstalled 7 Ultimate x64, yet the crashing kept on happening. I haven't done any changes to my PC and it's been stable for months. Last change was GTX970 in May. i5-3570K is overclocked to 4,4GHz but it's been rock solid so I doubt it's the cause of issues. I'm honestly completely out of explanations.

Setup: i5-3570K (4,4GHz @ 1,32V), MSI GTX970 (Stock, was OC'd before), ASRock Z77 Pro3, 2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz, Samsung 840 Evo 250GB, Kingston 60GB SSD cant remember model, 1TB HDD.

From what I can tell, the issue shouldn't be GPU, Memory, PSU or SSD/HDD drives. I doubt my OC'd i5 would suddenly start acting up as it's been stable and temps have been good (I'm running AIO water). I'm pointing the finger towards motherboard as it's been acting up once in a while, but I'm not sure if that makes any sense.

I've tried:
Reinstalling clean Windows a few times - crashes and BSOD here and there keep on happening with nothing installed apart from standard drivers, Steam and CSGO.

Reinstalling Windows to another SSD - no effect.

Downgrading to 3 different Nvidia drivers and been using 353.30 - maybe little bit less crashes, no real effect

Running Memtest86 for 8 hours - 0 errors

Running 3Dmark on loop for 2 hours while overclocking the card - stable as a rock, TDP 110% so PSU should be fine

Taking another memorystick out - no effect

Since around 2 months ago I started having my first BSOD and it was just once so I haven't really thought it should be fixxed. I could never be more wrong :P. So I went ahead and didn't do anything about it until now, since this week I get almost every day 4-6 times a BSOD while playing Counter strike global offensive. No other game I get BSOD except this one. After the PC crashed it will give me the error of atikmpag.sys not sure what it meant, tried to google it and tried the fixxes but none worked so far.
So here is my question to you is someone here able to help me out :?

I have recently played Counter Strike - Global Offensive and encountered a BSOD that never happened before. I'm running the latest Radeon Drivers 16.3.2 and played CsGo at windowed fullscreen mode if that matters. All spec same as in my profile info.

On some forums I have read that this can be RAM related, but I don't know for sure since the BSOD might obviously have many causes.
Dump attached. Hope we can figure this out

Thanks inadvance!

Hi guys,

I've been getting random BSODs since two weeks ago. At first, I thought it was my hard drive that was faulty, however, I bought a new one recently and it's still happening. I still get about 5-10 BSODs a day when I'm browsing the internet and playing games. I have attached the dump files below. I hope you can help me with this problem.

Thank you,

New fresh install of windows 8 updated to 8.1 with all my motherboard drivers etc up to date. Display drivers are the newest Omega drivers from AMD.

I installed steam and decided to install csgo to my ssd/C: drive since it's my most played game. Now I can play the game fine but after a short amount of time the game and display drivers will crash giving me a black screen and sound loop. I let it sit there for a while so I could get a bsod and crash dump to happen.

Since then I also updated my ssd to the latest firmware and reinstalled my AMD drivers and the problem still persists. I have no other games installed at the moment so if you wan't me to check if the crash happens with other games let me know.

Hi everyone,

I just finished my first computer build in 5 years last night (my previous one being an Intel Q6600 first-gen quad-core build), installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64, installed all of my core motherboard drivers via Gigabyte's website, updated my BIOS from version F3 to F7, and installed prime95, CPU-Z, and hwinfo. Please note that I installed nothing in addition to the aforementioned software (not even Windows updates). I then started a prime95 "Blend" torture test last night at around 9 PM. I periodically checked on the machine every couple hours until I went to bed around 1 AM. I then checked on it at 9 AM before I headed off to work and it seemed fine (at the 12 hour mark of the torture test). When I got home this evening, the machine was sitting at a logon prompt, and after logging in the machine told me that Windows had recovered from a serious error around 11:15 AM (the 14 hour mark of the torture test). I then checked out the Event Viewer -> System Log and found a 0x00000124 BugCheck.

Additional Hardware Info:
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S with a second added Noctua 140mm fan at the back

I've been getting frequent BSODs when playing games. There is never a problem at other times.

I spent a lot of time trying to solve this but I can't seem to figure it out. I have tried a few different drivers for my graphics card with no effect. I tried running furmark and prime95 to stress the system and it doesn't crash.

I assume all the information you need is included in the attachment.

Hello guys and girls,

Every time I try to play games or do something that's cpu or gpu intensive I get a BSOD. I've tried finding the faulty driver but to no avail. If anyone could help me with this problem I'd be very appreciative. Thanks in advance.

p.s. I think that the problems might be caused by overheating but I'm not sure. I haven't cleaned the fans in my laptop in a while but I while try that asap.


In hindsight, I realized I could have added more information. So far I've tried switching memory sticks. That didn't work. I've tried driver verifier and it did point out some conflicting drivers, but installing and reinstalling the proper drivers didn't stop the BSOD's. Also it seems that I'm getting BSOD's only when I'm stress testing my gpu (not overclocked) not my CPU (which heats to 92 degrees Celsius max, too much?). I tried underclocking both my CPU and GPU but that didn't work. I've updated my BIOS too. If you need more info please let me know.

Welcome to SF Halleluja .

A little more information would be even nicer .
Please follow the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Now as to the three dumps uploaded, they are all 0x7F with a the first argument being 8
That means that the OS had already started processing a bugcheck (BSOD) and while it was doing so
a second bugcheck occurred which it can't handle and we get the Double Fault
being that we don't really get the real cause of the bugcheck.

How did you go about stress testing the GPU?
What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:

Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

It is not mandatory to run both tests simultaneously, although possible as long as the temperatures are under constant monitoring.

Hi all,

I've been getting BSOD and freezes a lot more frequently now. It can either happen when I'm play a game like Shadow of Mordor or Diablo III or when I'm doing homework with Pandora or a YouTube video playing. The screen will freeze and then a buzzing noise will come through my speaker or headphones. The BSOD stopcode I seem to always get is 0x00000101. All my drivers should be up to date except my BIOS driver since it crashes when I tried to update so I just reinstalled the BIOS from a backup BIOS with a jumper. I considered just buying a new CPU, motherboard, and a proper internal hard drive 3.5".

Things I've tried:Ran prime95 for around 30 minutes, temps reach around 80 Celsius.
Ran MSI Kombuster for around 30 minutes, temp reach around 80-85 Celsius.
Ran Intel's Processor Diagnostic tool with a passing test.
Ran Memtest once per RAM stick overnight with no errors.
Updated Sound drivers and a clean updated nvidia drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller.
Upgraded my power supply to a more reliable Corsair 850 watt.
Ran a chkdsk /f
CrystalDiskInfo says both my SSD and HDD is in good condition
Ran Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware scans

My specs:Intel i5 4570(Non K-edition) with stock CPU cooler
AsRock H87 Fatal1ty Performance motherboard
EVGA nVidia Geforce GTX 760 2GB

Added SF diagnostic file.

Not sure if this is correct forum but I got the link from here for hardware diagnostics for BSOD issues (from Usasma - Hardware Diagnostics )

I tried the blend stress test for Prime95 and the CPU temperature on both cores hit 100c within about 5 minutes so I stopped it. Idle CPU temp is between 40 and 45.

I have Lenovo X201 with Intel i7 M620 CPU @ 2.67GHz (not OC, all standard) with integrated Intel HD graphics and 8GB RAM. I've recently taken it apart to clean so I was wondering if this test is unsuitable for my laptop or if 100?C is OK or if there is some other issue I should worry about. I don't want to damage my laptop especially as I think my issues are probably due to driver support at 8.1 rather than hardware.

A:Acceptable temperature for Prime95 test

According to Intel's website, the maximum temperature that CPU can operate at is 105 degrees, so obviously 100 degrees after 5 minutes is getting very close to that figure.

When you do a stress test with Prime 95, there are 3 things you're looking for: -

1. Temperatures.
2. System stability.
3. That none of Prime 95's tests fail.

The test is designed to stress your computer, putting the CPU at 100% load, to make sure that it's stable and that there's adequate cooling. Most of the time you wouldn't be maxing out your CPU, although there may be certain occasions when you do, such as if you're doing multi-core video encoding.

So, in your case, I would say that the temperature is too high under load, but with a laptop, it's difficult to do anything about that. With a desktop machine you could buy a better CPU cooler, add more fans etc.

With a laptop, there's basically only 2 things you can do: -

1. Make sure that the the system is free of dust. If there's dust blocking vents, that can stop hot air escaping. Also, dust may clog up the fan and prevent it from working properly. You can use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out.

2. Reapply thermal paste. This involves taking the laptop apart, removing the heatsink from the CPU, cleaning off the existing thermal paste, then applying some fresh paste and putting everything back together. Incorrectly applied thermal paste can cause temperatures to be higher than they should be, and the type of thermal paste you use can ma... Read more

My computer also locks up when playing Civilization 4, for the same reason it locks up during Prime95 blend test.(its actually only when FFTs are written out of place that it locks up)
So I tried disabling all the services I could, and also ending all the tasks I could and it still locks up, but in safe mode it completely fine.
What else can I do besides ending tasks and services?

A:Prime95 blend test locking up, but okay in safe mode

Did you use msconfig selective startup to disable services and clear up "load startup" items?

Does the system locks up if you choose the option "enable VGA mode" during boot up by pressing the F8 key?

I currently have my laptop connected to to a 34" high definition tv set via HDMI it is controlled by a remote keyboard & mouse from a USB infra red dongle. I was wondering, since the graphics and audio are onboard and have to share just 4GB of system memory will this setup be likely to shorten the life of the relevant components particularly as I intend to continue with the present setup? I should add both audio (Realtek) and Intel HD4000 graphics do an incredible job projecting video to a relatively large screen.

Hello there gervaise,I wouldn't worry that much,about them "relevant components".They are meant to "operate",work to their full potential,up to the level they are supposed to support.Unless "overclocked",under-maintained or mishandled,they should keep up for at least "ages"!Keep your machine in reasonable temperatures,dust-free,not a thing to fear of...

I was running some tests on my computer to see the Min-Max temperature , so i wanted a good program that stresses HD, Ram, GPU and CPU. Just like ORTHOS ( But orthos only stresses CPU And RAM ).

Oh, and is it possible to Undervolt GPU's? ( I think it is a dumb question, but..).

And if anyone know cooling solutions such as Undervolting, please post together with the program.

A:Stress Test

Hi for the stress tests your best bet is to use 3dmark you can get a trial version from Futuremark

The 3dmark test would put most stresses on the CPU and GPU. However the CPU and GPU should be the only real producers of heat in a system. The Ram should produce only minimal amounts of heat as should the hard drive.

As to the second question about undervolting GPUs yes it is possible. I only know from an Nvida point of view but the both Rivatuner and The Nvidia Bios editor would help and the process is mostly overclocking in reverse. Reducing core voltages and then testing stability, you may need to change settings to lower the performance of the card to accommodate the reduced voltage.

Are you worried about temperatures and if it is the system in your Profile be aware that laptops usually run pretty hot. Are you experiencing graphic errors or shutdowns due to overheating?

I wanted some expert opinions on what program would be the best to use in order to test if a CPU is 100% error-free. If there is no way to be 100% sure, then whatever will get me closer to that percentage.

I have been using Prime95, but I am now reading that it's "known" (to who?) to have some issues, therefore a CPU that passes, say, 4 hours of Prime95 torture test, may not be 100% reliable. So which test would be in your opinion the most thorough to test my CPUs (intel x86)? I don't care about it taking a long time (if it's less than 2-3 days).

For each CPU that I test, I run Prime95 for 24 hours. Is there anything more thorough than that? Some people mention SuperPi, but what do you think?

A:Best software to stress-test a CPU

Prime95 is pretty much sufficient... Use OCCT in addition if you want to be 0.05 percentage units more sure about stability.

Trying to run a stress test to see if my 3.5Ghz overclock is stable 100%. Prime95 is not using all 4 cores at 100% or even close, should I take this as a good thing as in my overclock is fine and prime couldnt even crash it or should I be worried.

Not good, you want it at 100%, cos you're looking at stability, try running 2 stress programs, its the same thing.

A:Solved: CPU Stress Test

Read other 6 answers

Hopefully I'm in the right forum for this question as it pertains to overclocking my CPU. I haven't overclocked it yet as I am still reading up on it and researching before I do anything and understand that the best way to find a stable overclock is to do it a little bit at a time and to run some kind of stress test program to make sure it stays stable or if I need to bump up the voltage.

So after a little bit of looking, I learn there's quite a few of them out there. Some of the ones I come across are Toast, Prime95, Orthos, SuperPI and 3DMark. I don't think 3DMark is the right one because that's more for graphics, right? So which one is the best one? Please keep in mind I am running a Core 2 Duo and would need to stress both cores, of course.

does anyone know of or can recommend a stress test application.

reason for asking.
installed new motherboard to desktop computer and it drops out occasionally. see new motherboard - windows 8 resets randomly for details of issue.

I want to run some tests before looking at new purchase of windows 8 OEM.

The issue seems to be when running games (high res) so maybe issue with GPU or processor.

many thanks in advance.

A:stress test application

Hello ascomputers,

I would suspect a possible GPU issue right off the bat because of the gaming issue. With that said, I would start off by downloading GPU-Z and monitoring my idle and gaming temperatures to see in any issue arise in that area:

Just download and run. Right click anywhere on the GPU-Z screen and select "always on top" when running. If you notice a high temp condition, maybe start off with a general cleaning but I would avoid any stress-testing software at this point to avoid permanent damage.

Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.7.3 | techPowerUp

Good luck.

I've run Prime95 a few times lately with no problems but last night one of my CPU cores failed after about 3 hours, which may explain the occasional BSOD during heavy gaming. The advice in stress.txt is that, unless you're overclocking - which I'm not - it's probably an overheating problem. I know that's not the case, since even after an hour of Metro 2003 on high settings the hottest any core has got is 57C. My Zalman cooler works a treat.

The zip file might help but it doesn't seem to offer any other solutions. Even though my CPU never overheats, is it normal for one core to run 6-7C higher than the rest? It's only like this at start-up and all 4 temps level out after running a while. Apparently it's core 1 that failed the stress test, which is not the same as the warmer core in the Word file attached.
