i will try IBT in the weekend when i got some more time tongue.gif

Looks great! I'd consider that stable! With that long of a test and those temps, with 1.2v you look great!

idle temps are pretty good, load temps are getting slightly high but not dangeours. do a P95 run for 8 - 24hours depending on how long you run your computer / day I.E if you fold 24/7 then do a 24 hour test. P95 will ensure stability. good chane you are but best to be sure IMO smile.gif

i see that you have ran p95 sorry, yep it all loooks good thumb.gif

For stability test, I use the strong chess engine Houdini 1.5a and Arena 3.0 as user interface. Both are free and installation is not required. Houdini maxes all cores 100%. I was gaming the pc without problems for a month, until I got 2 blue screens in the time frame of a few days. So I decide to pit Houdini 1.5a vs Critter 1.6 (also free but 1 engine is enough for the test) in an engine match. I got a blue screen in about 10 seconds into the match?! So I did some tweaks in bios, put the engines to play against each other again and took the dog for a walk. I went back 20 minutes later and they were still playing. I stopped the match there, resumed gaming and did not test that setting again. No blue screens after that. Why waste time running Prime 95 for so many hours? If I wanted to do extreme testing I would run my test for 1 hour.
