After an OC Prime seems to crash rather than produce an error like its supposed to. I'm not sure if this indicates instability or not, seems to work fine in games.

Any suggestions?

probably unstable...

to make sure run, run prime 95 at stock speed and see if it crashes. If it still does, then something else is wrong. If it doesn't, then your system was unstable with that oc.

A great stress test other than prime 95 is intel burn test. In my experience it has worked better and has been more accurate for me. Sometimes it takes prime 2 days to detect instability that intel burn test can detect within a couple of hours.
