Anyone any idea? Or should I consider 30 minutes of test is stable enough for my GPU.
GPU : MSI GTX760 HAWK
5' per kepler frequency step is enough to get a draft idea if your core can handle the extra frequency. Your stop mark for every 13Mhz oc can be considered the 5' of artifact free furmark round. So after 5' you stop the furmark, you may let the gpu to cool a bit for few minutes and then you may try for higher oc.
When you notice artifacts of nvidia driver crash you have reached your gpu oc limits. At that point lower the core two kepler frequency steps back (-26mhz) and then you may start testing for your RAM.
Finding both core and ram oc limits you can start running unigine valley benchmark for 2-3 passes. If it finishes without issues the proceed to the ultimate frontier
The final judge of finding your max oc is only one: gaming. So play your favorite game and check on which frequency your gpu can perform artifact free with under 80-85oC temps. For sure these speeds will be lower than your furmark artifact free/driver crash findings.
