I think if you can go 20 passes on IBT with max settings and 24 hours of Prime95 then you are as close as you can get. Then it is a matter of actually using the machine to see if gaming, folding, rendering, or anything else causes problems.
i only use cinebench for first look at a oc, when im looking for a vcore for a oc,
it gives whea errors very fast if youre not there yet, or just stops..
when it runs well, i go to IBT and do the 20-30 runs, if that runs
i run prime for a longer period..if it runs,
i go play games, BF3 is very good for stability testing i think,
when i run my computer for a week(s) orso, and nothing happens,
yea, then i call it stable
theres no program out there that can ensure you 100% stability, simple,
you use them to make sure youre very close to it, how many times now we see
peeps run all the programs, like IBT and prime, and still fail if they open a browser, or try play a game Edited by VonDutch - 2/5/13 at 8:26am
