Since v30.3 my computer bank is completing only 75% of the PRPs that it did in v29.6. They spend a large amount of time doing other peoples CERT work. Is there a setting to ask the server for just...

I don’t understand how the AMD 3900X has a faster FFT benchmark than my Intel 9800X (see benchmark thread) considering the 9800X has quad channel memory and the 3900X has only dual channel.

The 3400 is definitely faster than the 2666. Maybe it is enough. Perhaps I should have gone for the outrageously priced 10-core at $1000 a pop! 🙄

Overclocking RAM doesn’t seem to do anything

I have DDR 3600 in my Intel 9800X. It’s an 8 core CPU with quad channel memory. I have the CPU stable in Prime 95 LL doublechecks at 4.0Ghz (with AVX512 enabled in Prime95 v. 29.5 build 9).

Oh my gosh. You solved it. I moved all my systems back to build 9 (with the RAM still slightly underclocked like what it took to pass AIDA64) and they are all STABLE.

The quest is complete.

Yes, I've tried starting from scratch many times. My Prime95 stress test (blend) is now going on 11 hours with no errors, but within 5 minutes of starting a LL DC it still errors Invalid FFT. So...

So this is peculiar. I am three hours into a blend torture test and everything looks great (perhaps temps get a bit high at times - 85C). But if I try to run a LL DC it very quickly errors out with...

I'm still having major hardware troubles with the 29.5b10 release. I was able to successfully get it stable with AVX512 tests on AIDA64 (all I needed to do was keep the RAM below 3600 Mhz), but when...

Double checking PRP with build 10 on my “bad PRP” machine. Had to turn off Gerbicz verbosity 3 because progress had advanced just 0.74% overnight. Turned it off and speeds returned to normal.

They had problems before lapping the IHS. I lapped to try and get temps down (and the temps did indeed lower but the errors remained). I have lapped many times. No problems ever.

I’m dropping all the speeds. I keep an eye on CPU Z and even with all speeds @ 3.8 (incl AVX and AVX512 @ 3.8) I cant get a stable system. Failed at 7.5 hours. Trying now with 3.7 ::shrug::

I can search the machine for logs, and if they don’t exist, do another PRP doublecheck and make sure to save the logs this time (or enable more verbose logs if P95 has that option).

I think AVX512 should maybe only be an *option* in the next release of Prime95, since some people (like me) will suddenly not have stable default systems.
