Best way to test FSB stability

Hi all,

I'm currently trying to establish my max FSB. I've been cranking it up, and using Orthos to test.

Is this the best program? Or is there something better?

I prefer OCCT for crash testing, tends to pick up problems quicker.

Prime95 has a beta release that does multiple cores now using a later revision than Orthos, find it here: http://mersenne.org/gimps/ (current latest version is p95v256.zip for windows). So use that instead of Orthos if you prefer it.

Cheers dude. So, I take it general CPU tests are good for testing FSB overclocks?

It's just that I've got my FSB up to 515MHz with no dramas. I've been testing with Memtest and Orthos. It doesn't feel right for me to have such a good overclock.

Yeah, pretty much. RAM ones as well if you're reaching the limits of the RAM.

Sadly there really aren't any chipset stressing benchmarks I'm aware of, wish I knew of some but they just don't seem to exist, even in the expensive professional bench/burn packages.

OCCT looks good, but it sucks how it is not getting my clocks/multipliers right.


Thanks again.

there is a server grade stress test you can get from intel called linpack, trust me 10 mins of this and your computer will be begging for mercy.

i remember a while back when my chipset was at its limit stress testing didnt show it but it would crash in ~15-30min of playing hl2
so if memtest and cpu stresses fail to find anything it ends up coming down to how stable it is for your pc use

Yeah. I tend to use OCCT for a very long period of time (about 5 hours is probably suitable...10 if you're really that worried)...

8 minutes of Linpack = 40 hours of Prime95 LOL

Can you run Linpack on non xeon processors?
