Is this testing to establish a benchmark? In that case, limiting the test parameters to avoid instability might be worthwhile. If you want the system actually to run at the speed you mentioned, then consider that some Intel chip functions impose a Vcore increase. This will affect your OC.

Build 6 available for the Mac. It references libgmp contained within the Prime95 bundle.

I just updated the download page for that build.

I'm wondering if or when the Windows Service version will be updated. I have a machine that I would like to update. I also think that it would be beneficial with the way Windows 10 reboots after automatically updating to have the service version running and not losing out on days of work before I notice a machine sitting at the login prompt.

I used the Group Policy Editor to prevent unwanted restarts. To get there, do the following:

1. To run it, press the Windows logo key +R.
2. Type "gpedit" in the dialog, without the quotes, then click OK.
3. In the left panel, there will be "Local Computer Polity" at the top. Below that will be "Computer Configuration."
4. In that group: Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update. Select "Windows Update." In the larger right panel, a long list of items will appear.
6. In that list, find "Configure auto-restart required notification for updates." Highlight and right mouse button click, then select "Edit"
7. Change the radio-button near the upper left side from "Not Configured" to "Enabled." Below that is "Options." Change "Method" from "Auto" to "User Action." At the bottom, click "OK."

After I did this, a message would appear in the Action Center. One of the options is "Restart now." I have had no auto restarts since I set this about six weeks ago. Sorry about all the quotation marks.

I've switched from LL to PRP as I've read that it has a better error detecting method now.

At the same time I've overclocked the RAM (1600 to 2000) which surprisingly works flawless at the same voltage and timings. Ran memtest86+ for an hour which passed without an error.

Question: Would mprime 29.4 report it on the console if it would stumble across a memory glitch?

Yes. The PRP test is able to detect memory problems and it will report, something like this:

[Work thread Dec 14 16:12] Iteration: 61480000 / 75757575 [81.09%], ms/iter: 6.939, ETA: 27:37:15
[Work thread Dec 14 16:12] Hardware errors have occurred during the test!
[Work thread Dec 14 16:12] 15 Gerbicz/double-check errors.
[Work thread Dec 14 16:12] Confidence in final result is excellent.

Unfortunately, some of my machines are running Windows 10 Home, which does not have the group policy editor.

Oh, I see. I'll do some digging and see if there is another way.

I use TinyWall to block Windows Updates (among other things) from accessing the internet.
