New Build Failing Blend Stress tests. i7 4770K @ Stock BIOS settings. Please help!
Yesterday I was done assembling the most basic components of my new build. I will be done pretty soon after my WC parts arrive on Tuesday. Till now I assembled my computer pretty well which was very unexpected. I thought I will run into a lot of problems but it seemed to go okay throughout the whole assembly. After I was done installing OS and drivers though, it is a different story, I decided to do a few stress test with my stock CPU cooler on. I just wanted to very basic standard tests to make sure everything is working fine. Till now my computer passed the memtest86 and the intel burn test in standard mode. However it is failing the Prime95 Blend Test immediately after turning it on.
What I wanted to know what this means right now? Is it okay for the processor to fail the blend test with stock BIOS settings and stock CPU cooler? Is there something I am doing wrong? The only thing I changed in the BIOS is that I loaded the XMP memory profile.
I really will appreciate some feedback on this guys!
Here is my link for my Build Log:
And here is the list of all the components I am using in my build:
Case: Corsair Obsidian 750D Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell -
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87
GPU: ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit x 2 SLI
RAM: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133
PSU: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W SLI Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Fully Modular
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive
HDD: Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
Try a different version of prime95..
disable xmp in bios and run prime 95 again.
post cpu and gpu temp charts.
If it passes Intel Burn Test, it's good. Prime95 is known for causing the system to freeze on certain configurations.
