IntelBurn Test - Your Overclock Temps

IntelBurn Test 2.54

http://majorgeeks.co...Test_d5987.html

Only use this program if you are an advance overclocker and have full confidence in your system stability and have a well-cooled, ventilated system. Unfortunately topic this isn't for troubleshooting and you would be better served seeking advice from your processor manufacturer. Think of this as FurMark for CPU, it's going to push your components to the extreme, you shall take full responsibility for any issues that arise from using IntelBurn test. Another good alternative for testing systems stability/temps is Prime95 in torture test mode. Usually I'd run that for 8~12 hours on a new system build.

Note: Core Temp will show your cores higher than your CPU temps, your core/s may be reported as 76°C when in fact the 'normal' CPU temperature is 20% lower. If you have an Asus motherboard (I'm sure other manufactures have their own versions) you can use AI SUITE II to find your true CPU temperature, in test CPU temp was reported as 62°C.

You should know your processors thermal limit or TCase limit, for this processor that limit is between 95-100°C before it shuts the system down to protect your components. Older systems may not have this protection which is why you should at the very least run Core Temp - link below - to monitor the processor temps as it's running - this is only as a guide and will not provide 100% accurate results.

Mode: 64-bit

Stress Level: Very High (requires 4GB free RAM)

Times to run: 50

Result time / max temp: 4890.91 / 76°C.

Notes on run:

Ambient room temp was 24°C. Remember actual CPU temperature was 62°C.

Ran with Intel i7 SB 2600K 8-threads @4.6Ghz on triple-rad with 1.375 vcore, Extreme Load-line calibration, Extreme VRM phase control.

Used Speedstep hence multi drop tox16, try not use Speedstep for benchmarking to maintain system stability.

Useful free utilities I used:

CPU-Z

Good alternative Software (also be used for reading temps amongst various other useful features):

Nice topic SMiThaYe, when i have my PC back, i want to share my OC experiences.

I use and recommend Prime 95, because it´s more sensitive to unstable OC than IBT, but IBT is better to check cooling efficiency.

I can hit 4ghz for benching, but that is my 24/7 OC right there.

Smith, I just noticed that you didn't run IBT at Max Stress, that is what I recommend for really checking an OC stability and you don't have to run 50 passes. If you check our times, it took me longer to run 15 passes at max than it did you to run 50 at Very High.

You're correct! I didn't run Max Stress due to max other 2 RAM modules being defective but I will certainly correct that and run it again with the new overclocked 24/7 2133MHz DDR3 RAM.

I will run it once at 15-passes tonight - for yourself ZoSo - then once again at 50-passes overnight for posting tomorrow as a comparison to my earlier result. With the slightly faster RAM, it should be faster still.

I was just telling you in case you didn't know, it wasn't like a challenge or anything :P

Would be cool to see it though

I wish others would post their results..

Not managed to do the test yet because I've been quite busy lately with a million things to do and hope to get it running soon.

I'm quite the benchmark fan and won't let this fall flat. The bandwidth of a quick single-run showed 105GFlops speed on 2133MHz RAM, still not to be sneezed at.

Haven't even bothered to use the more expensive Vengeance 1866MHz RAM I used originally that was RMA'd. I have four modules that are technically identical but the two that were replaced are newer 8.16 versions, the other two are older v5.11 which is quite a jump. Well if anything happens to the older stuff it can be easily replaced ;)
