But you could test for 12 hours and it might crash on the 13th hour had you let it run.
Stability is hugely subjective, for example leaving a 20/30 tabs open and playing bfbc2 with fraps will surely drain the available RAM, that for someone could be everday usage.
Taking that into account I find that being able to stay stable for scenerio's like that, decreases your chances of getting any kind of bsod, therefore 'MORE' stability,
be overkill to some but desirable for plenty of people.
On that note, those that have passed the blend run at 1600mb are stable for how they run their rig, for example, gaming 24/7 bfbc2 with no problems, however, it 'may'
not be stable for high ram usage scenerio's which could
be unlikely for some as they won't be running fraps and have 20/30 tabs open in the background because that's not how they run their rig.
Once you have done a 12hour+ blend whether it be custom or standard blend, there won't be a need to run it again and im pretty certain that you won't get a bsod that relates to unstability of your overclock.
There will ALWAYS
be different opinons about this whole stability issue.
This is JUST
the stable club, whether you go for, a standard blend or a custom blend, 12 or 48 hoursyou should be stable for what you use it for, stability is stability for your own use.
If standard doesn't work for you, then go ahead and do a custom blend, that's the way I see it.
This is the stable thread, that's means general stability and extreme stability, both are included, however those with 8gb+ should really want to be using custom blend rather than normal blend (1600mb) as it'll stress RAM and the IMC of the chip BUT ITS TOTALLY UPTO YOU!!!EDIT:
Will update the Spreadsheet in a few moments, thank you for your patience.
