    Hey guys,

    Just finished installing my new motherboard, into the new case. So far so good..

    How long do I let the new thermal paste "bed in" for as it was reapplied when swapping boards?

    Also can I disable "turbo boost" in the BIOS and run my overclock at a set frequency?

    Also to add guys, if I get a stable OC over tonight, leave it running a few days to make sure all is well, can I format and put a fresh install of W10 on and will all my OC settings from the BIOS remain the same??

    Thanks, Zeebedy

    plz read a guide on overclocking, thank you.

    bios settings are stored in the BIOS, not the OS, so reinstalling the OS doesn't do anything to your bios.

    normally, if it wasn't a thermal plate, thermal paste doesn't need any specific time or thermal phases to work as it should. (like make it go hot immediatley after installing, which is recommend for plates I think)

    I never let my pc run several days to confirm stable oc, I tested it with Intel Burn Test and when that was good, observed some games and never had an issue. this overnight bull**** is for extreme tweaking to get the Vcore as low as possible, simply add 10mV and don't bother. that's what I do. make sure to find out what the recommended threshhold is @Vcore and don't go beyond that. just google your cpu and oc, you will find an upper mark for Vcore.

    Thanks buddy, only aiming for a modest oc, and I'm sure the threshold for my cpu is 1.30v

    Hey,

    Just done a modest OC, on my turbo boost, set from 3.6 to 4.2 and the core as standard at 3.4.

    temps on intel burn test peaking around 70-72c at 1.235v

    so will monitor a few days and see how I get on, and am I right in saying that stress test is a hammering for the CPU so gaming or basic computing will rarely test the system the same as a "stress test"

    ^yes games will be more modest @ stress and temps will be lower by far compared to those tests. about 10°C lower in my case, I use a GTX H 80i

    Try GRAW WildLands beta or The Division or GTA5 or BF3,4,5, Rise of tombraider or newest COD from Ghosts on wards, this will show a issue really quick if any,

    sometimes all those brute force L2/L3 cache , floating point unit tests e.g. IBT or prime95 don't stress as much as a modern game.

    Even fhd x264 or windows movie maker that use x264 with SSE4.x and AVX2 pass (both very demanding and good stability indicators) and then it fails in something like The Division by loading screen :grin:

    forget what this guys says, as far as temps go, games don't reach anywhere near the temps you get with a benchmark.

    and passing IBT and crashing in a loading screen is pulling stuff out of your ass, there's an ignore function for people like that.

    I have 50% of the games listed by him, no problemo, of course IBT isn't a guarantee, but the intesne test is a good way to start to see imediate instability, after that simply observe and correct multi down, or Vcore up

    For me personally IBT is nothing but a heat tourture test, ok it can be stability indicator too, but not so much like back in old Core2 days.


    In that time it idk decompresses textures, all 8threads go to max 100% and yeah it failed, while passed x264 heavy encoding earlier from raw fraps avi 20GB data.

    Asus real bench, last two parts mutli and combined are good indicators too and not too hot.


    lol you can now put on ignore if u want xD

    I had to agree with TJ testing stability with pure syntetic benchmark doesn't guarantee 100% stability.
    One time my friend brought his Ableton projects to work on my PC and crashed in 5m ahahaha. IBT / AIDA64 and P95 was totally stable.

    how long did you test it with IBT? What mode? I find that hard to believe, there's a chance that different instructions from a game will give you a crash yes, however you shouldn't exaggerate and put it in such a silly way like tj did.

    a benchamrk can guarantee desktop stuff stability and is always a good 1st step, and mostly sufficient and that's what alot of people say. if there's one game you can always adjust multi and core, but just testing the most demanding game and not a benchmark is just silly.

    btw, I told him that 1st bench, then games, then observe and adjust, so TJ just needs some attention again I think.

    I think i was related with the MIDI keyboard or/and the real time rendering ... i don't know. But i could do like 20-25 loop of IBT @ Maximum without crashing

    I usually do that schema of testing :)

    Hey guys,

    Played battlefield 1 last night and after around 10 minutes it crashed!

    Changing my cooler, new one comes tomorrow and gonna up my voltage a bit as I want around 4.0-4.2 on boost and I will be happy with that.

    If anyone can offer any tips or such that would be awesome. Just t keep things going...and I see to have most trouble from prime95 being stable when testing.

    You will need to provide BSOD code or something if you are crashing.

    Use bluescreenview and give the code, ie 0x101 0x124 etc.

    4.0-4.2 for an average CPU 1.25v will be more than enough.

    make sure your don't oc your gpu while testing your cpu, so you can say for sure that your cpu oc was faulty. then test some more and make sure you can reconstruct the crash and avoid it when setting the mutli down...

    Might be lack of RAM, ive noticed the same issue when i put in 8gb or ram in comprared to 32gb.

    When I had 8GB it would be 100% usage as soon as i enter any given multiplayer game and it would it freezes until i get the Win10 error and when i switched back to 32gb it is at about ~40-55% usage and works fine
