Consequnces of not stress testing an OC?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my 920 to 3.8 and I don't feel like staying up and monitoring my temps for 10 hours, what is the worst that could happen if I don't stress test and it turns out to be unstable? Will it just freeze and crash? Cause I can deal with that.. Any help would be great

Hell I never stress test...



I just wait for a freeze or BSOD or whatever to happen, and if it doesnt? yey!


So far none yet on my current OC.



It will most likely BSOD and restart.

You get a BSOD while playing a video game and people kill you, or your team loses as you add more voltage on a reboot.

Fine with me, as long as it still boots so I can change the settings it doesn't matter to me. Thanks

I have only stress-tested an OC a few times. It's not required, but it's helpful in determining if your OC is really stable. Thing is, I've had OC settings that ran games, movies, encoding, etc just fine and never have an OC-related BSOD or freeze-up, but when I go to stress-test, it fails.

Stressing it isn't necessary, but sometimes it helps.
