OCCT 4.5.0 Question

Hey all for those of you in the know I've finally worked out how to undervolt my CPU I have it down to 1.010v @3.6 but although OCCT completed successfully it looked like it was stopping through out the test but actually hadn't is this normal or is it a flaky run and maybe I need to up the voltages a little?
Cheers

Are you saying it freezes very rapidly but continues to run? Seems odd. I've used OCCT on every version since 4.1.x. Have not had that issue pop up or didn't notice it. Although I run it overnight so I'm not looking at it. But I'd figure it would fail if it did that.

In your case it could just be a normal situation of the CPU being 100% on every level maxed out and updating the UI is a lower priority so it may momentarily freeze? Seems logical.

Thanks mate not not rapidly just through out at odd times, I had the feeling that might be it the ui loading that is but it doesn't hurt to get extra opinions on it and I'm so chuffed as my CPU temp at idle is 32C/89.6F and under max load the hottest core was 60C/140F and I might try and get the voltage lower yet at another time

OCCT every 7 or so minutes will unload the CPU and change the workload a bit, giving different stresses to different parts of the CPU over time.

So OCCT will load the CPU fully for a while and then stop/change the workload and then start again. This is why it is very important to do an overclocked run on OCCT over long periods of time to ensure stability.

I just followed the guide Tom did on Rushkit and ran it for 30mins but I gamed tonight with zero issues and my game was buttery smooth so really happy and my PC is near silent

Glad to hear it. I personally like using OCCT for 1-2 hours for final stability testing, though if things are going to fail it is usually within the first half hour.

I noticed those OCCT delays too on 4.5. But I'm using it to stress test a Ryzen system, so I'm not sure if those little delays are normal or not. Never saw them in previous OCCT version on Intel platforms though, so I doubt we can chalk it up to OCCT's switching workloads. But I was also using an older version of OCCT on the Intel side.

This is the first OCCT for me so maybe it's just a bug with 4.5.0 if it's doing it to you too
