Windows 7: I think I found a stable OC!!!

Would seems its the part of the CPU that does 3D then, the test for 3D in Sandra Si etc will not stress it enough.

Some games simply do not like overclocks even if they are stable on other games and stress programs.

Physics, but it's also many other factors. Some games work the L2 cache more, and when I unlocked two of my processors they had bad L1 or L2 cache, either way some games crashed some didn't. it's really how they program the game/app to use the cpu. Some are just more cpu intensive! Since the cpu has various parts, everything might be fine except x part, and if that x part is weak and gets hot it might "fail". =P Either way it's not worth finding out why, it just means lower the speeds. lolz

What you really need is some good watercooling kit...

Naw, she was only running 40C then, I'm thinking though they lowered the temp shutdown on the die because anything over 45C I believe and it shuts off (thank god for die protection! lol). Anyways a copper heatsink should do the trick.

A long winded post.

L2 is stressed by the Small FFT in Prime95.

Yeah that's the test that would never pass on all 4 cores.

I have an Intel but I know if it fails on the Small Test its normally the CPU, so it needs more VCore or PLL Voltage or even CPU GTL's adjusted.

If it fails on the Large Test its the Motherboards NorthBridge/Chipset and it needs increase to the NB Voltage or NB GTL needs adjusted.

There is more variable's than above but you get the picture.

I would say your looking at the CPU side of things but it can be any part really.

Well nothing fails when the 2 locked cores are disabled, but once I enable them.... So I'm pretty sure it's just the cpu side of things but yeah I get what you mean.

Are you saying you unlocked cores ?

If so that's the reason, most if not all are locked and downgraded to lower CPU's as they have weak cores.

It does not make sense to lock good cores but does make sense to not throw away CPU's due to bad cores.

Welocme to the world of overclocking addiction. I can't tell you how many hours I've spent overclocking, finally I decided well that was intresting and now just do a minor OC and have learned to live with it. Best of luck and enjoy.Fabe
