Or if OP wants to get it done quick and dirty just take a few runs of IBT (Intel Burn Test) and attempt to go from there.

Or do a custom test in Prime of 1344 of 1344 and use ALL of your RAM except for 2.5GB of it. (ie 8GB Total use 6.5GB)

If you can pass that with NO errors for up to 30 minutes, then go for another 30 minute run of 1744 of 1744 and once again use ALL RAM except for 2.5GB of it.

Usually if you can pass these 2 tests with 30 minutes of each, gives you a indication that your system is stable, then you can run a few games and such to see how it performs, then run your P95 12-Hour Blend test and see if it's rock solid.

However at such a mild OC, you shouldn't really NEED to test stability for 12 hours, because in all honesty, in my personal experience I've never had stability issues until I hit like the 4.5/4.6Ghz range and unless your going to be gaming for 12 hours straight, it's not really needed.

You can also use games like Bad Company 2, StarCraft 2, Crysis 2, Metro 2033 or the Benchmark for that game, 3DMark 06/11, and Heaven to test stability too, although it's as intensive as Prime or IBT, but can get you some quick results.. And to top it all off, you test your GPU with ALL these except for maybe StarCraft2 because it's mostly CPU dependent.

will give the custome prime a go then report back

cheers!

edit* do i check run FFTs in place?
and how long do i want to run each FFT size for

No don't check it and run them for 20 - 30 minutes.

Ok here's the update guys



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This was after just over half an hour of prime at 1344 custom. I'm afraid CPU-Z doesn't read correct voltage on my board so it appears in HWMonitor where it says CPU



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This is what i got when i tried to run 1744 ?

next steps?

That is incorrect, it is FFT 1792

Now your good to test on Blend for about 12 hours or if you feel it's stable we can jump into Offset voltage.

Edit: Maybe 12 hours is not really needed. If you feel the same way I would recommend downloading IBT and doing about 20 runs on that on the Maximum memory setting. If it passes your good to go with setting your Offset voltage.

wouldn't mind looking at offset now i can always go back if necessary. already been gaming on this setting today and plus the 2 prime tests we just did.

Edit* ok will try a couple burn runs!
