More about core stable enough
  1. Prime95 should be run for at least an hour to check for stability, and most people would recommend at least 4hours of testing.
    10mjn will usually give you max temps but isnt long enough to check for stability.
  2. +1 1 hour in prime is not enough, the longer the better to check stability, you can also use OCCT
  3. ok i did an OCCT test and left it on auto 1h it passed
  4. Normally it will hold, play some games also, but i recommend stress test for at least 3-4 hrs prime
