The only stability test that matters - whatever it is you're actually doing with your PC. Unless you plan on benching all day/everyday, real world applications will serve better as your stability test. Personally, I initially run 10 passes of LinX, and if my PC doesn't crash or overheat, then I move onto Far Cry 3, Arkham City, or Crysis 3 (since I mainly game on my PC). If I can run those games without crashing, then I deem my PC to be stable. I don't have the patience to have a stress test running for an unnecessary 8-12 hours (or more)....

These are my Hardware specs:

Intel i7 4770K
Asus Maximus VI Extreme
Nvidia 690 GTX
Cooler Corsair H100i

I got to manage 4.5 Ghz @ 1.25V in Bios, suing AIDA64 for 12 hrs with Max temps of 89,84,80,77


I was wondering if this is enough time to stress the CPU, so I can see this is stable.


I haven't tried to lower the voltaje, because this is the first voltage that I've tried. Thank you very much, and I wait for your answers.

Maybe its worth it to explore your CPU a bit more, my 4770K needs 1.25v for 4.5GHz but for 4.4GHz i am fully stable with only 1.18v and the temps are 12cº cooler.

What are your average temps at 4.4Ghz? And is it delidded?

I like LinX too, but is Prime95 better or faster to error out? Or would you guys say x264 or XTU are better options? Also, what are those, lol!?

What stress test have you ran?

Plz tell me more than Aida64

I usually run half an hour of prime. You don't really need more. For CPU, small FFTs ( very high temps, which, for me, are about 15-20C higher than my normal load temps on stock ) and then later, IF I feel like it, ten or twenty minutes of blend.

Alternatively, I use IBT - High - 10 runs. But then I have gotten BSODs while playing CSGO after that, so that's not the best IMO.

I don't agree. I think you should do at least how long you use your computer for. For instance, say I game 8 hours straight every day. I would suggest at least doing 8 hours of testing before calling it stable. Then, moving on to what you normally do and if you get a BSOD up your voltages depending on what the BSOD was.

No game will use 100% of the CPU nowadays for them to warrant stress testing. If they did, the game wouldn't be optimized and the system would crash because Windows wouldn't have any resources. I don't see 8 hour stress testing as anything more than a waste of power.

Also, Prime for 8 hours. If your temps while gaming reach those, you must have either a slow processor ( if you're in this thread, chances are naught ) or the game must be severely unoptimized. Take a look at Battlefield 3 ( the BF4 beta is after all, a beta ) uses about 85% CPU on Ivy Bridge ( first thread I pulled off the internetz ) and then tell me if Prime does the same thing.

Never said a game would use 100%. However, many people have encountered BSODs while gaming when they thought they were stable through stress tests.

Off the top of my head, League of legends, starcraft 2, crysis 3 and battlefield 4 have bluescreened within 5 minutes on an OC that could pass linx without avx, i didn't try playing much else
