Best way to test for true stability in under 3 hours?? see this pic

ALthough it is obviously best to run stability tests for extended periods of time, me in my naive ways thought if I doubled up and ran a prime95 blend with a ITB 10 pass stress test on HIGH stress setting together at the same time, I could pretty close to rest assured that my PC would be stable if it survived the first 3 hours or so. Obviously, at this point I feel like an idiot. But hey, at least I learned something. See below.


Here are some BCcode errors I received subsequent to this and other tests that I would love to know the cause of. My board is ASUS P8Z77-V LK . I also have a Asrock z77-Extreme4 but I switched it out for this to see what would give me lowest possible temps at 4500mhz and so far, it's been the Asus, but with 4 + 1+ 1 VRM compared to the 12 phase 8+4 on the Asrock, i'm thinking I should quit screwing around and put the asrock back in :/ if you can give me any info on this screen errors below, much appreciated. Thanks. - Clint

    Running IBT and prime95 at the same time does nothing. They just cancel eachother out. If IBT detects another high draw on your CPU it doesn't ask as much from your CPU. So it's cancelling it out. The best way to stress test quickly is either run IBT or prime95 AND play a demanding game at the same time. That will tell you if your stable for sure. I've tried it and it's crashed many of my "Stable" oveclocks.
