If you mean stability testing so your computer doesn't BSOD error after overclocking the CPU,then it is a good idea to run tools such as Prime 95,Intel Burn Test,or Linx.
What cooler are you going to use btw?
The water block is an apogee gt but the thing didnt come with the amd bracket so that's on it's way so im just playing with the stock cooler, my c2 chip was a dud before this wasnt even stable at stock, but at 1.21 volts this thing was running 50 degrees on the stock HSF after a couple of hours on P95 and some F@Home running at the same time so I have high hopes for a decent overclock once I get the loop put together,
