thanks,

I am not so lucky though with the qx9650 it will pass hours of orthos but when I try occt it fails withing seconds. I was getting random bsods at 4.25 and I dropped to 4.1 and still kepted doing it so I droped to 4.0 and so far its good, I really really hope it doesnt bsod again or it might be a problem with the mobo or something. its these dang 9800gx2s

with my e8400 I could run 4.4 almost and be stable with my 9600 gts but as soon as I put in the 9800 gx2s it was only stable to 4.28

I'd try OCCT for stability testing. It will often stress harder than prime95 does should see temps increase a few degrees on the cores, and will often detect an instability in 10 minutes than prime95 cannot detect in 12 hours.

Download Link: http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/index.php?Download

If you want to stress it even more so download Linpak64 from Intel, it's what they use to stress test by solving a large set of linear equations... be warned tho this will increase your temperatures MUCH more than prime95!!!
