    RealBench and power supply question.

    Would running the bench with moderate OC's push or continuously draw power from the power supply to such a degree that one could use it as a test to make sure power supply stable? or enough of a stress test to see if power supply does something weird?

    Not sure how much RB stresses PSU at high clocks, but if you really wanna stress your PSU, use OCCT.

    This morning starting playing BF4 as usual with no problems or crashes until now. When playing the crash makes all my system devices loose power until restart. When upon restart a BIO's error states that power surge detected and shut down or restart (forgot). Please enter setup to continue. SO I switched to BF3 for a while then it happened again.




    I just used OCCT. I selected the PSU tab and clicked to run the benchmark. I left it on infinity. I used Logitech G19keyboard with display and used the cpu/ memory applet and EVGA precision to monitor. On the 65 sec mark I noticed memory usage peak to 99 percent that's when it did its thing. Now that I seen what happened the power supply didn't loose power nor did the M/B or CPU ect. What did loose power was all external usb devices and it locked up where I had to restart. This is also the event log from this morning
    all events are the same. This now has became a thread I don't believe belongs in here. im using sabertooth x79 board. memory @1866 FOR 3960x at stock speed. Where is best place to move this thread. If you have any advise on my issue fill free.

    I would try to eliminate other hardware and see what is left.

    Start with the memory please. Follow the guide in my sig and run Memtest86+ follow each step as listed and if you have problem tell me where you where in that process.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    OK, this morning I ran memtest86 version5.01. one pass took 2 hours and 3 minutes. Pass completed without errors running at 1866 Mhz.I took a pic of test results. Im not surprised due to the issue only comes up on BF4/BF3 and only when I ran PSU stress test in OCCT.

    I do have another power supply to use. It will take me a hour or two to switch out. After I do that ill try to play it again. But im worried I might screw that one up. My AX1200 now and HX1000 after that it too risky right? I can use my phone to respond to this thread. In event viewer all the critical errors are kernel power. If changing the PSU doesn't resolve should I try Microsoft tech support to see if its a windows thing or think its M/B maybe the VRM?

    If you want to stress the PSU the BEST current option is RB2 stress test. Nothing else comes even close.
