as long as i have my Threadripper System i am suffering from unpredictable instabilities on my AORUS Master… Blamed it on me first, then Mint, but no… i dont think so anymore.
I have run Memtest86 and got indeed memory errors (running 4x 16GB 3600MHz 16-16-16-36).
I then switched to stresstesting via prime95 (
stressapptest -W -s 360
I cant get prime95 stable… even with memory crippled to 2133MHz and the cores at 2.4GHz without XFR and precision boost and giving the core/soc some 50mV additional voltage, there are still cores failing. Those cores which fail, i have taken offline via
echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu8/online
and with all failing cores disabled, stressapptest actually completes successfully.
The thing is still… i mean… come on… 2.4GHz and still unstable?
Can anyone test if prime95 is stable at their system and maybe give me a hint on what to chase for? (MoBo, CPU?)
I am pretty sure the memory is ok, since the instability is unrelated to memory clock and i have tested different permutation of stick-arrangement, tried 2 sticks only and one stick only. still the same problems.
I also have reseated the CPU several times, however i have seen change in affected cores, there is a certain subset of failing cores that is always failing…
Please report your Prime95 results
