Poll: Which system is more FS stable?

Recommended Posts

Since I can't post an actual poll on here I will have to ask that you post your comments and system info on this post. Basically what I want to do is to see which system, if any, crashes more often...AMD or INTEL.If your FS crashes on you, locks up on you, restarts your computer, etc., more than 1 out of 5 flights, then please post your info. Please include your system's cpu type, video card, system ram, cpu temp when your using the sim, and if your overclocking or not. Thanks..---------------CPU:Video:RAM:TEMP:O/C:Comments:--------------Mine...CPU: AMD 1900+Video: Ti4600RAM: 512MBTEMP: 60cO/C: Not overclockingComment: Seems to crash more when my temps go above 58c[br][br][div align=center][br][link:members.cox.net/fstimes/wetimage.html]Click Here For Weather Image of the Day!

You might want to look into some better cooling. 60 is pretty hot. What kind of heatsink/fan do you use? How many case fanse? Did you use thermal grease on the cpu?Mine:CPU: XP 2000+Video: Geforce 3RAM: 512MB PC2700Temp: 40 idle, 48-49 under loadO/C: FSB @ 140MHzComment: No stability problems.Matt

Specs (I've added some other essentials).---------------CPU: P3/800O/S: 98SES/C: SB LiveVideo: Visiontek GeForce 2/TIRAM: 256 MegsTEMP: 35 Idle 39-40 under loadO/C: NoneM/B: Iwill BD100+Case: Antec Gemstone with cpu exhaust fan, 250W power supplyJoystick: Kraft 2-axis serial joystick---------------Comments: I've run FS2002 up to twelve hour sessions with no lock-ups. I've seen gauge related lockups when switching views--perhaps once a month, and with specific panels. But I've never--repeat...never--have had a lockup in any phase of flight where I was just flying along or on final approach. FS2002 is the most stable simulation I've ever run on my system.

Did you use thermal grease on the cpu? >I am using a Volcano 7+ (I think) and yes with thermal Artic Silver II. I have four 80MM case fans, one fan on the power supply, one fan for the cpu, one on the mobo cpu, one on the video card, 8 total. Yeah I know its runing a bit hot...and I have been looking into a better cooling method.

Man...you either may not have applied the cooling device correctly, or you may well have a bad CPU....I leave my system on 24/7 running Seti@home--CPU hog...plus run MFSF2002 at the same time....AMD 1800+ 512ram, only the 2 exhaust case fans, and the AMD supplied cooling fan...my CPU never goes above 43 degrees.No locks, crashes, or anything else

>>>FS has crashed twice since I installed it. Once when saving >a flight and once when trying to fly over the north pole. Will it crash if you fly over the equator???Sounds like you have a negative temperature coefficient going on or something

I've never had it crash during a flight though. It's very rare that FS2002 crashes on my system.Rob

I've never tried crossing the equator. But I think FS has a problem with the north- and south poles, there was a thread about it some days ago. Doesn't bother me that much, I usually fly over Europe and the US, not over the North Pole :)

If you're asking me..I'm not sure what my fan is...but its the one that came in the CPU box...the AMD retail version 1800+. I've heard they are usually not all that good, but my chip stays pretty darn cool...maybe the sensor isn't working :)I do have a fairly large case---very open...although my room is pretty warm--81 f. right now...actually, I lied..my CPU is now 45.The fan on there is actually only 4500rpm....maybe I'm just lucky. 2 hard drivesGF3 Ti500

CPU: P4 2.26 @ 2.64. FSB = 155, 1.65 volts Heatsink: Swiftech MCX460 w/ 80MM DeltaPSU: Enermax 430W dual fanVID: Leadtek GF4 Ti4600 running at stock (Only a day old..)RAM: 512MB XMS3000 @ 207Mhz 2,3,3,6Tem: 50c O/C: Yep :-hahOS: Win XP ProI experience crashing in MSFS when the FSB is set to 166Mhz, I can run benchmarks just fine at that setting, I think it has to do with the memory timings, I still need to tinker with it. Hopefully some XMS3200 will do the trick. Otherwise it runs just fine 24/7 running folding@home

Like you Rob, I've never had a crash with the P4. Solid as a rock even at 2.72Ghz - a 500Mhz OC on the stock Intel HSF. The P4 Northwoods are an amazing chip.
