    What test have you ran, Blend?
    Open Task Manager(right click the taskbar and select "Start Task Manager"), click performance tab, see ho much available memory there is. This value minues 50-100MB is max you should set in "Memory to use (MB)", if blend set it to more click customize and set it manually.

    A strong cup of coffee is needed, you just a bit confused of all the signatures, the original thread title is "GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200" and that is what being tested, sorry for creating confusion when asking about the E8400.

    Cool Re: GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200

    Hi Chike guess I have to follow the instructions found in the readme. Sorry for my mistake as I have not used PCs all my life like some young people growing up nowadays. :) Here is instructions that I found ......

    MANUAL METHOD INSTRUCTIONS
    --------------------------
    1) Visit PrimeNet - Account to create a userid for yourself and
    Manual Assignment - PrimeNet to get an exponent or two to
    work on. Copy these exponents to a file called worktodo.txt.
    2) Run prime95.exe. You will see 3 dialog boxes:
    2a) In the welcome dialog box, choose "Join GIMPS!".
    2b) In the second dialog box, fill in roughly how many hours a day you leave
    your computer running. Click OK.
    2c) In the third dialog box, uncheck "Use PrimeNet to get work and report
    results", click OK.
    3) Disable screen savers or use the "blank screen" screen saver. If this
    is not practical, consider raising prime95's priority to 4 or 5.
    4) When done with your exponents, use the web pages again to send the
    file "results.txt" to the PrimeNet server and get more work.

    The "Start at Bootup" menu choice (on by default) will run prime95
    every time you boot your computer. The "Start at Bootup" choice
    became "Start at Logon" starting with Windows Vista.
    UPDATE: Still having trouble running the tests so I am checking for errors in my work.
    1 wanted to check and Download the latest version for my particular system Win XP 32bit, but IE was still having problems. I decided to reset IE8 to default settings, done. After failing to download P95 yet again I installed getright download helper. Finally got the download to work and have the v27.3 build 1 installed and running. I choose to round off checking as ProffJim suggested and tried to run. I choose the large in place FFTs option 2 and it ran. Still testing at the moment BTW. Not sure what effect my AV program has on all this but I will investigate as soon as have time to read thruogh the manual.
    Will report any updates as needed. Still running all same settings and 2 sticks of ram in default slots. will change ram to other slots later as well....coffee time Guys
    Trying to run Prime 95 without the account and do a torture test as advised. The first test ran and then stopped with a error (see screenshot) I tried to get the report results by opening the link and saw that there is a file containing a report as well. Can not find the report just yet.
    Also checking if windows needs any updates as well. Windows only needed non critical updates (some were recommended by MS) there is a hardware driver needed for my lan but thats not relevent here.
    Prime95 update: P95 ran for three hours this afternoon with a max temp on C#0 of 75 C. There were no errors to report other than the one this afternoon.
    Memory was swapped to the slots colored in
    REDThats where they will stay for a few hours more then I will try one stick at a time. all memory setting are the same and BIOS settings are the same. Will post a screenie soon.

    Hope this helps anyone else out there trying to run Prime 95...
    Max

    Yes, if they want to prticipate and find mersenne prime numbers.
    Your reading should have been finished at 2 as ou should press the "Just Stress Testing" in the first dialog window.

    Right, I see thanks for your help, Chike. I was able to run through some stress testing after I got some bugs out of my setup. I have a screenie of prime 95 coming up shortly.
    I reset IE8 to help with the download problems, and installed getright as well I can download now after having problems again.
    Any ideas why I got an error or does that just happen some times???

    This is too hot for Prime95, you better not overclock it, unless you going to swap coolers with the E8400.

    Yes, and I may also use some better thermal compound as well. The combo of thermal compound and a better cooler will ensure a cool running rig. I have also heard about "lapping a CPU" with sandpaper, maybe 320grit or similar to allow better heat transfer. I have not researched this topic in depth just yet. keeping in mind to keep any shavings away from the pin side of the CPU.
    I also ran memtest again this morning with no errors for about three hours(using the #5 test)
    I am going to read through the BIOS setting guide so I can at least get some basic settings other than auto. Also, as I said before I will lower the MCH core a bit to test that as well (1.16 to start then raising if needed.)

    lapping the CPU may at most lower about 3c. If this will stand in the way between 3.3GHz and 3.5GHz it may be worth it.
    Lets see if we can get it to 3.1GHz first.

    Thermal paste is very important and may result in 2c difference even between a good TM and a better one.
    See what's good and available where you live:
    80-way Thermal Interface Material Performance Test - A: Excellent Performance
    Thermal Interfaces Roundup: Retail Products. Page 12 - X-bit labs

    There is no need to force ">>" in MemSet, if there's difference between channel settings it will open by itself.

    I ordered some paste now that I got paid :) I did compare and found Artic Cooling paste to be best product offered in my area. Here is a link for the product that I purchased Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound
    It should arrive in about one to two days.
