How long should AIDA64 run for a clock to be considered "stable"

post #1 of 3

I know it's way more intensive than prime since it uses different instruction sets, so I'm assuming it's less than 6 hours.

Admin on AIDA64 forums recommends, and i quote, "a few hours". so I'd assume 6 should be more than good.
Quote:
1) If you would like to stress your system to reveal a potential hardware flaw or instability, then enable all tests in the System Stability Test window, and press Start. Let it run for a few hours. If it doesn't display any error messages, Windows also runs fine, and your computer doesn't reboot, doesn't lockup and doesn't shut down, then your computer is considered very stable.

2) If you rather want to stress your system from a thermal point of view, to reveal potential cooling issues, then only enable the FPU test in the System Stability Test window, and press Start. Let it run for a few hours. Watch the temperature graphs, where the motherboard temperature should stay below 55-60 Celsius, and your CPU temperature should stay below 80 Celsius. In case you have an Intel processor, then should also watch the bottom graph where the Throttling activity should stay at 0% all the time. If the Throttling graph shows any non-zero activity, it means your processor is overheating. In case your computer restarts, shuts down, locks up or throws a BSoD while running the thermal stress test, then your computer is overheating.
