How long to run TaT to consider CPU Stable?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
How long does everyone here run Intels Thermal Analysis Tool to believe your system is stable?

Thanks in advance for the answers!

Use TAT in combination with Orthos or OCCT. When trying higher clocks, I usually test for about 15 minutes and then continue to clock up with the same vcore until it starts crapping out fast, then clock it down or raise the vcore.

To check CPU's stability, it is recommended to use Orthos.

TAT is just a temp monitor but it also have an option to run your CPU at a % you set it too. Using that option on TAT makes you produce more heat. I think it pushes the CPU way too hard or something.

Just use Orthos as a stability tester. It's recommended running Orthos more than 8 hours. If it doesn't fail in 8 hours, you're stable.

What is your idle temp?
Load temps should not exceed 60C. I limit myself to 55C.

Use Orthos. Follow TaiDihn's link

I think the acceptable time frame is 6+ hours.

Although in my experience, 1 hour stable will get you through gaming.

But also in my experience, it won't get you through gaming and folding *a very CPU intensive program*.

GO *no pun intended, orthos users will understand this lol* for more than 30 min, i would say at least an hour for gaming.

And use Orthos!

With tat or occt, 1 hour is good enough . personally if i pass 30mins,i am preety sure of being stable but i let it run for an hour or more anyways .

E6600 @ 3.6Ghz?
What is your Orthos load temp right now?

.
i lost faith in orthos. when i first OCed my cpu to 3.2ghz i ran orthos for 28hours or so without errors (was all glad to be stable), yet i got 2 blue screens within a period of 20 days after the "orthos test" then i tried tat and occt to see if i would be as stable as i was with orthos. tat caused my system to hang after aprox 30mins and occt after 1m30s... from there i knew i had to add some vcore to get rid of the random blue screens .
