You can run 12+ hours of stressing and still have issue's, and by running Long stress tests you also risk damaging Your mobo and/or other hardware.

Don't believe me....Head over to Extremesystems and check out there threads.

Yes there are some that run long stress tests, but the majority do not (AMD side).

Stability is in the eye of the owner/operator.

But NO where in this thread is it required to run over 1 hour OCCT....So do not criticize any one here or on this Forum.


Have a nice day

PS...

AIpha nice job

STABILITY IS NOT IN THE EYE OF THE OWNER. Unstable... is well.... Unstable. You cannot make a stable system out of an unstable system. Most stress test 8 hours but some don't deem it stable there. Some run 24 hour stress test.

LOL, 1 hour OCCT does not deem a system stable. Any overclocker knows that.

I do not want to beat you down on this but REAL overclockers run stability test for 8 hours. NOW YOU CAN SAY IT STABLE. Until then most GOOD overclockers view it as unstable. So your system is UNSTABLE until proved otherwise.

If you knew about overclocking and your mobo temps and processor temps are good, YOU WILL NOT DAMAGE ANYTHING. Where do you come up with these things???

I am criticizing you. You are a novice. Go to extreme systems.

Have a nice life!

stability is in the eye's of the beholder... in gaming, benching whatever your never going to hit what occt, prime95 or orthos does too the proccesor.
I'll run occt for an hour if it passes after that hour it might as well be stable because no game or benchmark is going too push it that hard.

overclocking is pushing your hardware as far as it will go and see what you can do hence why there's people here that will do extreme overclocking, running a cpu at 6ghz and running a stability test for 8 hours too show thats its stable to run a benchmark is unpractical(going to cost a fortune aswell). real overclockers push there hardware and prove there better then everyone else

Thats a good one! I love crashing a half hour into Crysis.

Glad you enjoy having crashes

I have never had a crash that a Driver/and or I didn't cause


Personally Jimibgood I don't really care what you or anyone else deems stable... What works for me works...and thats all there is to it.


PS....

My one 1hour stress tests do not crash in crysis LOL


Also quit your ranting and complaining on stress tests

why has it not happen to me then? I've always overclocked like that and I've blue screened more running stock then my overclocked systems, sure there's boundaries but generally if it passes 1 hour of stress testing its most likely not going to crash while gaming especially with my 3 hour crysis war matches.

but we will leave it at that I'm just in a bad mood from lack of sleep so i don't want to be starting a flame war, are opinions are a bit different but I've seen your other post and your a helpful guy so its done flame wars will only hurt us both.

You guys act like I am starting a debate. This is not new stuff. Maybe you guys are afraid YOU WILL NOT PASS A 8 HOUR STRESS. Just leave it on overnight. If it passes... bam your good. Why are you guys arguing what the vast majority of good overclockers do. I did not come up with this theory.I crashed many times 2-3 hours in. just cause you passed a 1 hr stress and "MAY BE STABLE" doesn't mean others will. To me, giving this advise is not the "Best" advise. If a new overclocker joins our forum, I feel the correct answer is, "Make sure you pass a 8 hour stress. This way you will be certain you do not crash when gaming or doing certain applications."

Let me ask you this....... Are you 100% certain you can play Crysis for 4 hours on your overclcok and not crash? If the answer is maybe, then you may not be 24/7 stable. ALL EXPERIENCED OVERCLOCKERS RECOMMEND 8-24 HOUR STRESS TEST WITH 24 HOUR BEING THE BEST.

BIGGUMS, you are most likely stable but maybe not....... Take the challenge!

So continue your 1 hour theory.... IT IS WRONG.

I will make a bet that most high overclockers that say there system is stable on a 1 hour Stress, fail an 8 hour stress and are not stable.

I will gladly show you my benchmarks at 3.81GHz which are smoking. I benched 19,677 and have gotten 19,750+ on 3DMark06 but its not stable so what good is it? I hold the #4 spot WITH 1 VIDEO CARD in this forum and 24 overall. Low 18's Super PI 1M(18.25) There were no requirements for stability.

Jimibgood, if you're going to give advice at least be polite about it. It wouldn't have been a big deal if you simply suggested a different method of testing.

Everyone has there own process of testing. Mine is OCCT 1hr and then Orthos (priority 9, blend) for 24hrs. I've had several Orthos 24hr tests pass after a 1hr OCCT test...not always but majority of the time OCCT has proven it's success.

In my opinion nothing is 100% stable

Good luck
