Stability testing OC's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have overclocked my 2700k to 4.5ghz with 1.34vcore using my msi z77 to keep my idle clock at 1.6ghz using the turbo boost OC method. While stress testing for stability i used prime95 for around 6 hrs with no problems and around 60-65c core temps.
The question is i know people run this for 24hrs+ but i do Rendering in Autodesk maya so i thought i would setup an old scene for a long render. Basically i rendered for over 24hrs my temps where around 60-65 again and i had no crashes, rendering uses all cores at 100% and uses hyperthreading and this scene used over 12gb ram. So my system is stable right?. this was around 3-4 weeks ago and have still had no crashes/bsods.

In my opinion your stable. You could even try backing down the vcore little by little and continue the testing process.

Thanks for the reply Spin Cykle. Yeah i was thinking it was stable. I have rendered hours with some complex scenes and it takes it easy. I was wondering if there is any worthwhile cpu upgrade over my 2700k thats i can use my msi z77 socket 1155 motherboard. I think this is kinda the best i can have in this motherboard. Any advice would be great.

The summer is here and my overclocked Graphics cards are reaching 75c while gaming, looks like i gotta back them down to stock until its cooler again.
