@falkentyne daaayum so how do YOU test stability and when do you call it 24/7 and what volts are you using and what is your overclock? It would be awesome if you actually provided your own ss with whatever your running. Anyways it's your call with what you decide same goes for everyone else. If they want to post a ss then its cool if not, thats not a problem.

by the way go here and fill in system spec. http://www.overclock.net/specs.php

Oh thank you for that link. Never even knew it was there.
For stability, to make sure I'm able to actually run games, I do a 15 minute loop of prime blend. If it fails, +.015v vcore. If it passes, I run games.

After having degraded too many previous chips from stress testing, I just play games. If I BSOD, +.015v vcore

BTW, I'm OCD, so I *easily* get afraid of a chip degrading, and then I wind up repeatedly stress testing it, over and over and over and over....and sure enough....

Here's how I kept abusing my first QX9650, that I had for 3 years always hoping it would pass...and it was precisely THIS abuse that degraded it...(though my 4 pin motherboard didn't help....my 2nd QX9650 (only had it about ONE week; sold both at the same time) that was stable at 4 ghz and 1.375v on my system was stable on the buyer's system at 1.28v after I sold it to him.



Running 50 passes when most people ran 10 or 20...(this was in XP, but I ran the same thing in windows 7...but only 10 passes in W7, since I was able to use all 8 GB, and also took almost an hour to pass...).

Sorry for the cropped SS, but I had a friend's picture as my background (along with the realtemp temps and cpu-z volts), and I don't think he wants me to post it online...

Anyway, my 24/7 clocks are 4000 mhz, 1.25v (LLC off=1.16v load), to preserve cpu life.
My max normal clocks are 4500 mhz, 1.265v BIOS, LLC1, 1.236v load, for safety (only if I need the boost).



Absolute max gaming clocks are 5 ghz 1.445v BIOS LLC1, 1.404v load


Low default VID (1.212 VID @ 3.4 ghz) leaky hot chip; temps get way too hot after the first 15 minute loop (85C +...), after it starts several iterations of the second loop so I stop the test right there.

prime blend 8hrs+ cpuz and realtemp. please follow the rules like everyone else. I do understand that you dont want to degrade your chip, so why dont you leave it at stock and you wont have to do any prime or linx. Btw IBT and lix is overkill.

EDIT: Or do what you feel comfortable with and then post if you want. By the way you have to do atleast something better than a cropped ss.

Rules

1. 8hours+ but would prefer to see 12 HOURS+ of Blend run.

2. MUST have a screenie WHILE UNDER LOAD with your name, CPU-Z 1.57 and realtemp 3.67 ONLY!!

3. List your overclock, voltage, cooling and RAM

Um that cropped SS was from a QX9650...NOT from a 2600k ! I took that like two years ago :/ I was just explaining that I am OCD and will start testing nonstop if I think the CPU is even 99% stable...(and that's what led to my QX needing higher volts)

That's fine. This thread has had alot of useful information, and I read it each day to see how people are doing with their systems.
My apologies for acting like this...(didn't mean to thread crap or anything).

Sb is odd. I can't do 12 hours mainly because I can't go that long without using my PC. Last time I failed at 11 hours because I tried to encode some video for ps3 at the same time Lol. Maybe when I am not super busy I'll do it or if I am gone for more than 12 hours in a day. IBT also will run forever at lower temps than prime. Fun times.

In a recent experiment I found I could lower vcore a bit by raising CPU ppl :/

One of his posts was actually more useful (for me) than this whole thread.

I don't really like running a Prime test for 12/24 hours straight. I typically set it to what is stable for 2 hours or so and then play games. If I blue screen, I bump up 0.005v. Mine appears completely stable (a week of use) at my current settings so I am happy.

My cooler won't let me go past 1.375 volts so I can't be in the 5.0 Ghz club :-(
