Seriously, I'm ok with ditching prime95 but at the very least do 8hours of Realbench if you don't want to randomly corrupt that paper you've spent 3 days on writing.

Yes everyone please overclock your computer to 5ghz and 1.65v and then start writing the most important word document of your life and only save one copy on your SSD. Oh and also do this while you are trying a new setting of 5.1ghz and 1.69v. Yes that is exactly the method I describe for the best overclock.

Yep. Some people use their pc for other stuff than gaming.

If you are going to run Prime for 1-2 minutes, you 're just wasting your time and kidding yourself (click on my signature for examples). Prime is SLOW. If you want "fast" , you get IBT AVX and do 10 runs on Very High.

1-2 minutes of Prime isn't stresstesting, it's illuding yourself. If you want the best overclock, don't run any stresstest. Prime or IBT don't serve for best overclock. They serve for stable overclock. If you don't care about stable overclock, then there is zero reason to run them at all.

I use mem test to occupy all of my cores. and stress for at least 15 minutes or do something while leaving 1-2 cores avalible.
This is a way I find helfull to stress for stabibility while getting more clocks thumb.gif

If getting more clocks because failing stress you aren't stable

Utter nonsense. Most people on this forum want a legitimate, stable overclock. Most people consider "the best overclock" to be a verified stable overclock. So I would say you are in the minority. To each his own.

You stress test for only 15 minutes?
post #59 of 73
For higher clocks. Aka unstable
post #60 of 73
Okay I'm done posting in this thread. Have fun running your guy's stress tests for 168 hours straight. I mean you can never be certain of your system's stability. Meanwhile I'll continue to enjoy my 4.68ghz $500 dollar pc that has been stable for over a year. But I live in constant fear that my computer will crash, any day now...
