So, it doesn't matter how confident it made you feel. Our feelings on the matter don't mean anything when compared to the truth.
Well the reason I say it is because my rig was prime stable for 12+hrs and I had no issues with stability. The only thing that I was really concerned with was with the fact that my rig couldn't do one pass on ibt. After some tweaking I finally passed ibt with 10 passes. So you can imagine how much better I felt knowing my rig was just that much more stable.

Oh, indeed. That's what happened to me when my overclock could survive nearly any type of prime test, but then one day I tried linpack and it couldn't last more than about 5 runs. I sat there going "what?!". But once I got it to last about 50 runs, I almost got goosebumps. It was a great feeling!

So yeah: right on!

stable for 50 runs linx, stable for 10 hours P95 small and large FFTs, stable for 8 hrs blend and for 8 passes of memtest.

This is one heck of a stable overclock. Firefox doesnt crash either

I ran prime95 for two hours and that was over a year ago. Have never seen a blue screen nor any hick ups. But then again I know what Im doing. My point is the 12+ hrs people take to test is useless and 50 rounds on linpack is absolutely ridiculious... You have to go in with a specific target and adjust the voltage properly. I see so many people that require the highest possible OC, problem with that is once you add a different piece of hardware you have to start over. Like switching my old graphic cards out on my old mobo I had to redo the OC because I was pulling a lot more power through it (I went from two 7600GT cards to two 9600gt cards), this is a reference to my old P5E-N I had a couple years back. More over I go top down instead of from the bottom up. Most people I have seen keep adding voltage until it is stable, I however started at 1.4v (I think) and reduced until it literally stopped working.

Ah, but like I said: some people get lucky and have it rock-solid stable even though they've only tested it for a couple of hours. But since not everyone gets lucky like that, we recommend such extensive stress testing to make sure.

For example, when I ran a stress test for the first time, it was the Small FFTs test, and it lasted for 9 hours (and then I stopped it because 9 hours was my goal at the time). But, I was still having problems every once in a while, so I decided to increase the stability so that it could do the 12 hours of the Small FFTs, 10 hours of Blend, 8 of Large, in-place FFTs, and then eventually later on down the road, the linpack tests. After increasing the stability for all of that, my problems completely disappeared.

But fast forward to about a month ago: I got a new GTX 260, and as I expected, I now have to get my lazy butt in gear and re-stabilize my overclock. I still haven't done it yet. I'm definitely being hypocritical here. Not only that, but I'm not being very smart since I know using an unstable overclock is harmful and stressful on my system. lol So if I had any intelligence, then I would go back to stock until I felt like working on it.

Its not luck.. You cant run bare minimum voltages and expect everything to be ok. You have to give it some room. Last, on prime95 dont worry about smallFFTs just run the blend test.

I'm saying that those who get lucky are the same people who just happened to have their voltages high enough, as well as the right combination of settings in the BIOS for the overclock in order for it to be rock-solid stable. I am not saying that it's pure luck all the time. I'm saying that some people get lucky and just happen to have complete stability even though they never made 100% sure by doing the stress testing that many of us recommend (the kind that seems extreme and unnecessary to most people).

And regarding the Small FFTs test: that's fine, you can recommend to me to ignore it, but I won't listen. The Small FFTs test is a CPU-only stress test. It's much more stressful on the CPU than the Blend test. I utilize the Blend test more for when I am beginning to focus on the memory's stability. And I use the Large, in-place FFTs when I am focusing my efforts on how stable my system actually is as a whole.

Then I utilize the maximum stress level of the linpack test to further test the stability of my overclock in general.

So, just because you had the experience you had, it doesn't mean everyone will. I've seen way too many people complain of problems a month or 2 after they think they have stabilized their overclock by saying things like, "I am having these problems, but I know it's not my overclock because it's stable. After all, it is able to do 12 hours of the Blend test". But 9 times out of 10, their problems are solved by increasing the stability of their overclock so that it can do 12 hours of the Small FFTs, 8-12 of the Large, in-place FFTS, and even some linpack testing. In other words, their overclock wasn't as stable as they thought. They weren't lucky like you.

So, say what you want: but your experience isn't typical. I'm sorry.

Totally agree, Two Cables.

Some may get lucky, and some will have degradation; without an extensive, diverse, and application specific (Core i7 =/= 486) stability testing regime, you really don't have a clue which.

I don't personally believe that a lack of BSODs is proof that degradation is not occurring. I'm not even sure of the reasoning behind suggesting it, let alone magically knowing it to be true.

I say things with certainty, even when I am just reasonably sure, as much as the next guy, but this seems to be a bad problem with the subject of stability & stability testing.

I guess it is because most people, if they "know" something, don't necessarily feel the need to prove it to everybody (with regards to whether you need to spend more than a few minutes testing).

The stability group / thread that I am a part of, does around 2 or 3 days solid worth of testing, and even that is not "overkill", because overkill is the standard to begin with. We are just attempting to maintain the same signal clarity as the engineers originally intended.

Damn. You really nailed it by saying that we are only attempting to maintain the same signal clarity that the engineers originally intended. I mean, that's exactly what it means to keep the CPU "within normal operating conditions" so as to avoid degradation. Anything outside of that is too much instability. I grant everyone here that all overclocks are unstable by nature. I mean, it's not that I am unaware of this. But I'm taking that fact into account when aiming for "extreme" stability of my overclock. I am also accepting the fact that no matter what, my overclock will always be unstable due to the very nature of an overclock. I mean, I am accepting that no matter what I do, the very fact that it's overclocked means I am shortening the life of my CPU regardless of how stable it is.

I'm actually finally beginning the process of re-stabilizing my overclock after having my new GTX 260 for nearly a month now. It replaced a 9800 GTX+, so you can almost imagine the system is like "WHOA". And I actually have been having some very minor problems here and there ever since installing the GTX 260, so I know it's not stable. So I plan on making my overclock stable enough to do this:
  • 12 hours of the Small FFTS test in the 64-bit version of Prime95.
  • 12 hours of the Blend test in the 64-bit version of Prime95.
  • 12 hours of the Large, in-place FFTs in the 64-bit version of Prime95.
  • 10 passes in Memtest86+.
  • Windows Memory Diagnostic (I've never used it, so I don't know what to expect)
So far, it is already stable enough to do 100 runs in LinX using 3400 MB of memory. I would have used more, but Windows 7 kept complaining about being low on memory. Setting it to 3400 finally got it to stop, but Windows still complained about an hour into the test.

If my overclock can't make it to 12 hours of the prime tests, or 10 runs of Memtest86+, then I honestly don't know what tweaks to make since it's already pretty tweaked out. But I'd like to keep this thread updated anyway.

This is my new replacement for memtest86. Memtest86 has failed me many times. Yesterday I was running some tests. Passed 100 loops of Linx, then went to P95 blended. Failed the blend test 7 hours into it. Ran memtest86 for 8 passes, no errors. Ran the above linked memtest and 12 memory errors. Looks like another D9 stick going bad. Memtest86 has never been good at catching memory errors for me. I've used it a lot and it will passes with settings that aren't even stable enough to boot Windows. I'm about ready to toss the CD.
