    With LinX or IBT if your not using MAX memory your not fully stressing the system. If it pass with only 1gb or 2gb of ram but fails when using 4gb or more then the system is not fully stable yet.

    check this link out on how to properly use LinX/IBT How to run LinPack stress test(LinX/IBT)properly-an explanation(maybe a guide)

    See this link as for when to change voltages when using LinX or IBT. x58 i7 Voltage Guide [stickey please]

    Voltage guide should still help with your system they are similar.

    ok, I am getting errors whenever I test LinX at 4096........1024, 2048, and 3096 test without errors for three passes.

    Should be 3072 :)
    Lets Stick to 2048 for 4 threads and 4096 for 8 threads.
    Try Adding vcore, if you have EasyTune installed you can do it without reboot, but you will need to set the value in BIOS later. Not sure about the DVID option though.
    If possible, change the value and click the green "set" button, re-run LinX/IBT

    ok, a couple of questions.......first of all, when you say add vcore, do you mean increasing the dvid,? and if so, to what value......i think u had me at +.03125 at this point with the next available option +.0375......... and no, ET doesn't let me change dvid.

    secondly, when u say test for 4 threads and 8 threads.......do you mean....... "test for 4 threads" = HT off (only 4 threads available).......and "test for 8 threads" = HT on (8 threads are available)..................OR do you mean..........regardless of HT on or off, choose the number of threads tested from the settings menu of LinX and IBT ?

    sorry, this stuff is all new to me.........sometimes I am confused (my friends will tell you more than just sometimes ;) )

    With HT off make sure only 4 threads are set in LinX.
    When HT on I wanted to see the difference between 4 and 8. If 4 threads or 8 threads will yield same score as HT off then we can test with HT on.

    If ET6 don't kt you change DVID you can change to static vcore instead normal+DVID, so it's possible to change in ET6, and at the end see what DVID is required.

    WDIT: but still use 512MB per thread weather you run 8 or 4.

    ok, got it, much clearer......thanks ;)

    so, with today's OC , ibt just tested fine with 2048mb, 4 threads, HT OFF....cpu vcore=normal, dvid +.0375v,, qpi/vtt 1.27 , three passes, 51.9, 52.4, 52.4, and temps cool

    so, now, i will see what happens when i turn on HT and test 4 threads vs. 8 threads........
    (with 2048 test for 4 threads, and 4096 for 8 threads)

    Run both 8 and 6 threads with 4096MB, will be better comparison.

    with HT on, all other settings the same, LinX three passes of each.................4 threads, 2048 =48-49 GFlops............ 6 threads, 4096 = 51 GFlops............. 8 threads , 4096....47 GFlops on first two passes, then ERROR........so, increasing Vcore Dvid is next....I guess....?...back shortly
