Hell I am passing 10+ hour tests on 1.285V and 4.6GHz right now. Might even pass on 1.28V - but it probably wouldn't last 5 minutes of Realbench or x264.

Definitely real bench and x264. Heck if it was me I wouldn't be happy unless I could do a few hours prime. Thats just me though.

XTU cpu test seems pretty crappy. I did however find the Memory test in XTU to be very good for detecting unstable cache.

Might I suggest giving another quick look at the stress testing spoiler?

There will soon be a patch for the latest release ASUS bios that addresses the issue you noticed. thumb.gif

cool, how did you know? And any eta?

Btw: my current OC just passed 8 hours of realbench, running 30 loops of x264 now

Edit:
passed 8 hours of realbench 16GB, IBT high x10 and x264 16T x30! Thanks for the great guide OP!

Don't get me wrong, I have read your entire guide (probably a dozen times) and even have it printed out for my reference. I know that XTU and AIDA64 (Full) are on the 'Easy" list. However, AIDA64(FPU) is on the "Medium" list with x264 and RealBench. From what I have seen it looks like AIDA64 (Full) is actually tougher to pass than AIDA64 (FPU) - this is just from the half dozen or more tests I have done with AIDA64. Both tests seem to very easy to pass though.

Anyways...I just wanted to get your guys' opinion. It sounds like maybe I should be verifying my OC stability with x264 or RealBench - not AIDA64 or XTU. I can tell you right now that in order for me to pass x264 or RealBench for 8+ hours I will be at probably 1.3V or more compared to 1.285ishV at 4.6GHz. Seems like I can run really low voltages for AIDA64 and XTU and pass.

I know your recommended test on here is x264 and it looks like most people abide by that. I just want to get the best OC possible with the lowest voltage and wasn't sure if x264 or RealBench was overkill for my needs.

Handbrake is an interface to allow easier use of encoders, usually x264. Realbench uses x264 as one test, the x264 test is just x264.

Quick question. My board had a BIOS update and now, with the setting on Auto, the PCH voltage 1.1V, but before it was 1V.

What's yours? I've noticed slightly better stability, i can now substract around 10mV to my previous stable voltages, but this can be due to the PCH voltage increase or increased stability due to the BIOS update

Yea I noticed that - I suppose I could just use x264 as my main stability test. I found that the RealBench Benchmark is great for testing initial stability...if I can pass about 3 loops with that then I move onto the RealBench Stress Test - which like you said is just like x264 test talked about on here. I might just forget about AIDA since it appears to be really easy to pass and may not be a good indicator or true stability.
