    I only use IBT/AVX Enabled, then some gaming to check for stability.
  • 10% (6)
    I just game and use my computer for my regular tasks to check for stability.
  • 1% (1)
    I use other stress testing programs, like OCCT.

I don't bother as i feel IBT and prime95 etc will only help to degrade the cpu more quickly going by reports of excessive usage by people trying verify their rig is stable. So if my rig does not blue screen if left running for 24hrs under normal usage i know its stable and has proved to be a good reliable test.
Had no blue screens for weeks now since getting bios settings right.

You are completely wrong with your methodology.

Stress testing software exists for the purpose of stability testing.

Leaving your rig running for 24 hours under "normal circumstances" is in no way a sure-fire way to tell if your rig is stable.

It could blue screen within a week, or a month. You just have to hit the right spot, and when you do, you will think "damn, why didn't I stress test".

Just so you know, running a potentially unstable system isn't doing it any good, you know? With time, you could end up with corrupt data or even worse.

If you don't bother with proper stress testing, then don't bother with overclocking.

IBX w/ AVX and some Folding@home (not really a stress test program, but the last choice is the closest to my methodology).

WOW! chill out no need to be rude!, your entitled to your opinion and
I'm entitled to my opinion on this forum without you telling me what i should or should not be doing with my rig.

The point i was making which i made clear in my previous post was that for ME i didn't want to risk degradation of my CPU by running stress testing programs for 6 -8 -12- 24hrs.
i have read about people saying they are suffering degradation with their cpu's due to usage of stress testing programs to verify their rigs are stable and they now need to bump up the voltage to maintain the OC or it just wont OC like it used to and blue screens.
As already stated i have been running at 4.7ghz for around a month now with no blue screens all day an night so my rig is stable regardless of whether i'm gaming for hrs or encoding.
