    Stability Testing

    What programs do you guys use for stability testing these days?

    I used to use prime95, but that likes to melt my 7820x, and throws errors/crashes while neither memtest86 or Aida64 stability test show any errors.

    Is prime95 stability a thing of the past, or do people still run prime95?

    For overall system stability, ROG Realbench.

    For DDR4 stability, Google Stressapptest for Linux.

    You can use Prime95 very well still, but remember that new ones support the newest AVX instructions so it might be a good idea to disable the AVX instruction support in the config file before stressing (or use older version Prime95 26.6). Remember there is an AVX offset setting in the UEFI to scale down the clocks when use of AVX instructions is detected.

    Thanks for the replies, RoG RealBench worked great for stressing the AVX instruction set. It crashed while Aida64 did not, and I think I have all my settings stable now.

    I have yet to notice any of my stress tests accessing the AVX-512 instructions...

    Is there a program that specifically stresses the AVX-512 instruction set, so I can verify the "AVX-512 Negative Offset" is good?

    Prime95 version 29.1 or later supports AVX-512.

    Do you know which test uses the AVX-512?

    I tried using the default torture test-blend, but I don't see a difference in temps between -6 and -9 AVX-512 offset

    My temps are insane with version 29.3 of Prime95... With Aida64 and RealBench my max core temps are 80-85C. With the first test of Prime95 my temps are ~75, then with test 2 they hit 90-92C, and with the third test starting around the 4 minute mark, they hit 97-101C!

    I didn't see any errors, but it only ran 4 minutes before I stopped it in fear of melting my CPU

    Use a mix of rog realbench, hci memtest, Google stressapp. You can throw in aida 64 to hit the cache hard if you wish. Be systematic so that you know which voltages need tuning at each step.

    Are you planning a write up for overclocking with the Skylake-x, Raja?

    I would second this request.

    I did find this video covering basic overclocking on Skylake-X on an ASUS MB:

    RVIE X299 System:
    Windows 10 Prof 64-bit | Intel Core i9 7900x | ASUS Rampage VI Extreme | Corsair AX 1200i PSU
    Corsair 900D | 32 GB 3200 G.SKILL Trident RGB Series | EVGA GTX 1080 in SLI (x2) | Nvidia 2D Surround Set-up
    Samsung 840 PRO 256 GB | Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB | Intel 520 SATA SSD 240GB HD | 2 & 4 TB WD Black Hard Drive
    Creative Sound Blaster Z | Logitech THX 5.1 speaker setup
