Round off checking - on or off?
 
I see it is off by default.
I was thinking to use prime95 to test my computer reliability.

What does the round off checking do and should i enable or disable it for my testing purpose?
Thanks.

Wouldn't you rather just run the torture test?

I have now been running the blend (test some of everything test) for 12 hours.
And yesterday i ran the small fft test for 6 hours.

While the test was running i saw there was this round off checking option in advanced tab. It was unchecked..

I just wanted to know what the option does and should it be enabled or disabled when running the torture tests?

Thanks.

I am pretty certain that it is always on in the torture tests. It's aim is to flag pcs(and the tests they do) that won't pass a torture test I think.

Ok.
Thanks for the info.
I wasnt sure since the option for it in the advanced tab is unchecked by default, but i clicked it anyway to have it checked.
But good to know it doesnt make a difference if i check it or not.

Cheers.

It does make a tiny speed difference. On is slightly slower.
