If you're happy with 4GHz then you can run prime95 overnight, and that's a good sign of stability. Myself though I will run Prime95 for about 10-15 minutes to determine preliminary stability, then if everything looks good I knock it up another notch of OC, rinse and repeat until you are either at a place where CPU fails Prime, you are satisfied with your OC, or your temps get to a place where you're not comfortable anymore.

If Prime fails or temps get too high, then you scale it back to your last stable OC and run Prime overnight, then do some gaming and what have you to check that everything is ok.

12 hr stress testing is the old way and very exhaustive. I have been using intel burn test on high and have found that if it passes that then I am stable. I am always completely stable with that test as it is much more of a stress than prime. prime takes so dam long lol
