Oh an my voltage is only 1.38 with LLC set to extreme and 1600mhz ram in bios

Prime 95 tests a broad spectrum of calculations that a CPU will encounter on a daily basis. It does not matter how long one specific program is at 100% load, since it is not about that. It's about testing the worst case scenario (high temps / high voltage) and still being able to do the job, which is what prime95 does.

When I have the time I leave mine running for 24hrs. When I don't, 4hrs is stable enough until I have the time to test some more.

But for anything close to 99.9% stable you'll need to test for at least 12hrs.

Voltage increments of .025V should be fine, but you're almost at the thermal limit (61 Celsius), so you might want to get that in check first. As a reference, I will get about 38 degrees Celsius after 10 min under load with 27 degrees ambient. This is @ 4.3GHz and 1.36V.
What rad, pump and tim are you using?

Radiator: RS240
Block: Rasa
Pump: XSPC stock pump built into res
Coolant: Distilled water
Tubing: 3/8id,1/2od
Rad fans: 2xAP-15's in push/exhaust
Thermal Paste: MX-4

I have always thought my temps seemed high even at stock clock and voltage. I have re-seated the block once and the temps remained the same, maybe 1C difference.

And as far as the stress testing goes my idea was to just verify that it does't crash for 5 min or so. And then once I get the temp and clock i like I would run a full 24 hour run to check for stability.

no need to run prime for 24 hours, just fold on it for a while. I was 36 hour prime stable but failed stability when folding...just FYI.

We'll fix your stuff this week thumb.gif

Isn't thermal limit for FX 70c? You still have heaps to go mate, keep going, next time can you upload a picture of your temperature with Core Temp which will be easier to read.

Hmmm... Could it be that u have inlet and outlet hoses reversed on the water block? Do u have a big picture of your rig?

Im sure the chip can handle those temps, but AMD recommends <61.

61C is max for fx. and what is Core Temp everyone talks about? HWmonitor has core temp but it dosn't really work.

Actually no, the point of stress test is to put CPU in worst case scenario and making sure CPU does its job correctly. 30 minutes to 1 hour is no where near enough to gauge a system stability. Prime95 uses wide variety of computations that people encounter in daily basis, and does it slowly. 8 to 12 hours is the minimum for Prime95.
