*Note: If you want any programs let me know and I will direct you to the link xD
**Note: I have no clue what the red boxes mean, I have tried to search for it but no answers [checked youtube, internet, ocn and help files], I thought perhaps I was frying my CPU but as you can see everything went okay, any suggestions?

That's not bad.  If you want an even better test of stability, I recommend the 64-bit version of Prime95 v27.7 build 2:

Use the Custom Blend test, have it use about 90% of your memory, and try to get your system to last more than 12 hours.  If it can do that, then you are golden.

I thought about Prime95, a lot of great reviews, everyone uses it however I have heard more better things about IntelBurnTest. Not for every CPU but for IB since it was designed for it. I might though to please Prime95 users and overclockers who will not accept it if I don't use P95. I know how some people are, I might though maybe, this is fine for me. I am happy with it so I am good for the moment.

Thanks for the link

When I was learning how to overclock my Sandy Bridge CPU, I was told to avoid Intel Burn Test because it doesn't use the AVX instruction set and so all it does is create heat without really testing the stability very much.  It's like not using all 8 cylinders or something.  Prime95 v27.7 build 2 does use the AVX instruction set, and it is perhaps the best for Sandy and Ivy Bridge because of all the different kind of testing you can do.  IBT is a little bit limited.  The best Prime95 test for Sandy and Ivy Bridge is the Blend test because of the Integrated Memory Controller.  The Custom Blend test is the very best because you can have Prime95 use more of your memory (90% is recommended), and you can do other customizations as well that can't be done by any other software right now.

 

From what I've seen here on OCN, Prime95 is the #1 stability testing program used by the vast majority.  Some people might say that OCCT is better, but again, Prime95 allows you do customize the test and OCCT is very limited in that respect.  I have other reasons why I don't like OCCT, but I'll save that for later if need be.

 

Getting back to IBT, 15 runs is still not really enough for an overclock like this.  If you were doing 4.0 GHz or something smaller like that, then it might be ok.  I would have to recommend at least 50 runs, but 100 would be better.

 

I've haven't had anyone tell me yet that IBT was designed for IB.  How did you find that out?

I might have gotten some of my facts confused with other products on that last question since I am looking into where I found the information out and finding nothing.

I guess I will retract that statement since it is most likely false, being my memory/brain at fault for that one. IBT is used by Microsoft to test their CPUs, they may not be the greatest at a lot of things [not my opinion] I trust them enough to use their software. If my CPU ever fails me then I will not use IBT again and would redo my testing with P95 with the settings that you have recommended. I will also do the suggestion testing when I have time to kill like that. I will do 8hrs but never 24hrs that crap takes to long and to be honest this PC is my only form of entertainment, 24hrs is too long. xD

If your system is not stable right now (and it very well could be unstable), then there's a risk of data corruption.  If you ever get data corruption from instability, it could be anything from something very minor to a corrupt text file, or all the way to corrupting critical files - or even irreplaceable files, like a family photo that you just opened.  It's like lightning:  it can't be predicted when a system is unstable.

 

Although, the chance of that happening is relatively small.  It's much more likely for eventual unexplained lock-ups or BSODs.

 

If you are going to school or if you have a job, then doing 12+ hours can be effortless.  All you would have to do is start the test when you go to bed, and then look at it when you get home the next day.  If you go to bed at 11pm and start the test at 11pm, then by the time 11am rolls around the next day, 12 hours will have gone by.  By the time 5pm comes around, 18 hours will have gone by.  ;)

 

I would definitely expect Intel to use their own software for testing their CPUs, but it seems to me that the experts here on OCN prefer Prime95 for testing the stability of an overclocked system.  I don't know how Intel tests their CPUs, but I am assuming that they only test their CPUs at stock with IBT.  Worse, if your version doesn't use the AVX instruction set, then it's not much of a stability test because it's not really stressing the entire CPU, in a sense.

The newer versions of IBT do use AVX extensions - I don't know at what point the libraries were packaged in (for a while you had to downlaod them separately), but the newest version available supports it for sure. Should be the same for Linx, but I haven't verified that personally.

4.5GHZ turned out to not be stable and the AISuite keeps messing with my CPU voltage taking it up big time, now I guess I will try to figure out the bios settings for my Asus board. Would be easier if someone had a stable profile for me xD

4.4GHZ seems to be my next option, unless the reason for 4.5ghz didn't work was a voltage issue.

For me i run before IBT and Prime95. After completeing the highest run in IBT, i will follow it by Prime95 custom blend with 90% ram used up. Everything is good and running. Prime95 runned on 19hrs and decided to stop cos i have important things to do if not i would have continue for 24hr ++

Or you could just use it until it crashes and lower the OC like most people...
