  1. Depends on the amount of OCing you've done.

    People say do a prime95 test for a couple of hours, but personally, play a game your into for as long as you like, or if its a working machine (for like CAD or non gaming) then do some of the work you'd normally do and see..

    I would just do your normal activites on the PC and test that way, but thats me personally.
  2. I did a stress test for 77 minutes, And it was succesfull does that mean my graphics cards overclock is working fine, i also played a handfull of games.

    Kind of, My suggestion is to play/work on your PC by doing your daily activites on what you would normally do. This would suggest better than a stress test IMO.
  4. Yep i did, I played l4d 2 and tf 2 both for 1 hour, seems like its quite stable.
  5. stable now, but it damages your graphic card. its life can be reduced by 2-5yrs depending on what games you play and how long you play

    ALOT more then you wouls think, as most of the time only Hardcore gamers upgraded in the 2 year time scale.

    Most people i know buy a system to last 3-5 years, 3 years being Minimum at best.
