How many of you overclock (stress test) while gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
You want prime to hog all the cpu resources.

When you game and bring up dx, windows gives priority to gaming. So prime may be running, but not stressing cpu to the max.

And then I try some benchmarks like 3D Mark 11, Heaven, Metro 2033 benchmarks, etc.

And then I game.

I always find my rock-stable OCs like that, no problems.

I only get errors after 3+ hours on Prime95 I would definitely run more than 1 hour. BSOD usually happen right away though.
