Prime and Linx determine stable overclocks, not suicide runs.
I will put them up as proof that, even if only briefly, the chip has achieved the overclock claimed, but may not be stable. It is good if people want to show Prime95, OOCT, IBT, etc pics in their posts to show stability, but a bit hard to show that in the list?

When u do a CPU-Z validation, plz put your Overclock.net name in the "Name" field instead of your "Computer Name".
