i use Cinebench as first test, if it runs, and i dont have whea errors, very important to look for when using cinebench
i let IBT run 20x, if thats ok, i go to extended testing with prime,(custom, max ram etc)
but after what we talked about last pages, i dont do the 24H prime runs anymore ..lol,
18H, or like ivanlabrie does, shorter time, 10 or 5 min, instead of default 15 min,
it does shave of hours, and i dont think the results will be less then with 15min, not sure tho..
meanwhile browsing, start/close some proggies, play a game..of course
its in the combination of "tests" that makes a good and stable oc

yea, readings can be off sometimes, just a little is ok.. same here,
my 1.305V vcore in bios reads as 1.308V in program..Edited by VonDutch - 12/12/12 at 9:21am
