this isn't directed at anyone...just quoted to continue the conversation across pages
stability is a bit of a pipe dream anyway... even at the manufactures defaults there is an expected error rate on every component... software and hardware alike actually... so stability is more or less subject to how stable you want it to be.. .otherwise what would be the point of ECC ram and raid arrays in servers... not to mention gpu's that offer double and quadruple accuracy in compute tasks... is really a question of how stable you need/want it to be... most just want to be stable enough to not impact performance or corrupt windows... and that actually takes a lot more than people think... but in general.. if you can pass IBT AVX on very high and at least an hour of Prime blend you'll be ok... if you really can't stand to lose your OS or data... consider more drastic tests.
btw.. I'm aware that there are those who passed those tests and still had very bad corruption... but understand... I had very bad corruption on a computer that passed 24 hrs of prime 95 blend... turned out to be the hdd lol
