he is using Motherboard Monitor 5. settings for NF4 boards can be found here:

http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6798

sometimes errors can be caused by heat. i dual primed one time and 1 core stopped after 7.5 hours and the other was good for over 20 hours. i primed it again and it was fine.

I think there is a difference between stable in absolute terms and stable as in stable enough.

I would guess that, even if your o/c was stable after 24 hours, if you ran it for a week it would error at some point and if not after a month, or year, or decade. It could be that, if you ran Prime95 with a CPU at stock for a year, or even a month, you may see one error, as ambient temperatures fluctuate and heat can cause processing errors. A 10% o/c might be stable with an ambient temp of 21°C (room temp) but at 26°C it might produce an error.

If you are looking for stability in absolute terms, no amount of Prime95 testing may ever be enough. The reality is, for many users (like myself) 24 Hour Prime95 testing is just unnecessary. How often does the average overclocker run their system at 100% full load for more than 6 hours? Most 3D games wont even use 100% of the CPU whilst running and things like web surfing, e-mail, DTP and HTML programming wont even use 50%...

I consider that, if my o/c will pass 1 hour of Prime95, it is stable enough for my uses. If you're the kind of person who run's their CPU at 100% full load 24/7 however, you may find that even 24 hour Prime95 testing may not be enough for your system to be considered stable, in absolute terms.

It's all relative, but the argument that 24 hours of Prime95 means your o/c is stable and that any less is meaningless, can be applied to 168 hours of Prime95 means your o/c is stable and any less is meaningless, which is tern can be applied to 730 hours of Prime95... and so on and so on... 24 hours of Prime95 does not mean your o/c is stable, there are too many variables.

Personally, I'd rather do 1 hour and then wait and see if any problems crop up when using my PC, but for those that think that 24 hours is the magic number, I'm sorry to say your are mistaken. Who knows if the 25th hour would have produced an error..?

personally i will run an oc if its stable for over 8 hours and see how well it runs with my normal load and use.

i found that 2.8ghz wasnt as stable as i thougt it was as my system crashed randomly a few times, but managed prime95 for 8 hours ok

also games are a good test of stablility, my mates 3200 would be ok normally but in cod:uo it crashed

cpu's are finicky if it failed after 9 hours to tell the truth that could mean many things. Could be a fluke, could be major instability and could be a minor hicup. If it stayed stable for 9 hours use it everyday like you normally would monitoring your temps then try prime again a week later. If it fails quickly you arent stable and start tweaking again If it goes the same amount of time and you havent noticed anything going wrong then you are good to go. just mo.

couldnt agree more. No amount of prime95 will give you TRUE stability.

HOw much load does Prime 95 put on the CPU?

is it 100%? or can you choose how much load Prime 95 can put on it?

reason im asking is because if i run Prime 95 for 24 hours and is stable. Will my CPU be stable on EVERY game? and no matter the load?

there is always the possibility of instability because we are using the processors above thier factory established values. No way you can be absolutely sure that it will always be stable but you are almost never going to run a cpu at 100% usage for 24 hrs on everyday usage. Prime i believe uses between 95-100% its never constant 100% but OOCT will tell you.
