    im using h100 to cool it though :)
  3. Well your voltage is still pretty awesome :P
  4. How many hours of prime is that? Looks like 21 minutes was the length you tested. That is not testing it enough.
  5. i know not enough testing, but i ran this all day with this voltage in gaming and daily task it was running fine luckily it doenst crash :)
  6. Wanna stress test it, Run F@H.

    As footlong says, use prime or F@H to fully test stability.
  7. Best answer
    if it does everything he needs it to do without ever locking up, its stable enough

    no need to run prime95 for a day

    nice overclock btw, good temps, nice volts. yer set

  10. One hour of prime? Full stability comes with 48 hours, but people usually test 24 hours.

    For a quicker way? Try intel burn test. If you can pass that at High Settings, you can say your stable.

    But prime for 24 hours is your safest way to make sure you 100% stable.
  11. yeah 1 hour of prime definitely doesnt mean you're stable :/ ive crashed at 2 hours 7 hours and everywhere in between with OCs...ITB is the way to go...i can run F@H non stop and have no problems but still fail a itb test on high or very high
  12. unless you are actually f@h, who cares
  13. I can run Intel Burn In Test and Prime95 from 12 hours 24 hours WHATEVER. And I'm STILL not stable when playing a regular Steam Game and I crash and burn. What I do is run IBT WHILE playing a demanding game. Now THAT, will tell you if your FULLY stable. That's my way. And personally I can't see doing it any differently IF you really want to be stable. Who want to be on your PC knowing that at any point in time doing something really demanding may crash your PC?
  14. thats my point, your pc may never crash during normal use but might not be "fully stable."

    running a stress testing program for a day doesnt really matter if your system never crashes during normal use

    +1. Gotta really stress out your cpu. Intel burn test, plus prime 95 and play a game all at once even though your gonna get horrible fps, it will push your cpu to its limits.
  16. why on earth would you want to push your cpu to its limits for a day
