When do you consider an OC stable?  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I run about an hour to two hours of Prime95, then call it stable. I was wondering what sort of stress testing other people are happy with. So, what do you do to consider an OC stable?

i consider it stable until i bluescreen. sure, maybe 32 hours of looping haven benchmark will bsod, but i will never do that. if i can do whatever i want, and not even worry about bsod, thats stable.
