What is a quick stability test to run?

Ive been using aida64 to test stability and if it passes 20mins, i call it stable enough for my needs. What is another program that i can run to check that only runs for a set amount of time and can give me an idea if its stable?

I like OCCT as well, also play some of the games you like, in some cases you can have an OC that's stability test stable but unstable in certain games.

Occt sounds good, forgot about that 1. Thanks

What i call stable might not be what yiu call stable, but if it plays my games and pc does everything i beed it to and not give me 1 single error, to me that is stable enough for me. I find it rediculous "stressing" a cpu for hours upon end when my pc will never be loaded down like that. Unrealistic for my needs.

that's what me and probably most of the people here on OCN consider stable, but it doesn't change the fact that a quick stress test isn't a stress test.

play BFV or Apex for an hour (or any game that uses AVX2 instructions), it'd be more useful than an hour of x stress test.

...emphasizing 'quick' with all its qualifications (ie above), and also assuming that there should be a mix of CPU and GPU (re. gaming) I would use all of these:

1.) 3x consecutive runs of Cinebench R20 (supports AVX, AVX2, and AVX512 instruction sets)
2.) 8x concurrent instances of 'memtest' / 2200 MB each for 30 min (assumes freebie version limited to 2200)
3.) Aida 64 Extreme Stability tests (CPU, FPU, Cache, RAM; perhaps GPU) for 10 min
4.) 2x consecutive runs of 3DM Firestrike Ultra
5.) 2x consecutive runs of 3DM TimeSpyEx (and PortRoyal if RTX)
6.) 4k, 8K Unigine Superposition

Other folks may have a different recipe for 'quick stress test' combo, but if your system passes all the above, you're on your way to finalize settings for the full-meal-deal stress test.

ive already done #1 (5-6 consecutive runs), #2 I did to check my ram OC using my 64gb ram, #5 ive also done back to back... so im almost there already!

Just run Asus Real Bench stress test for at least a couple of hours loading as much RAM as you can.

Totally agree with the other comments regards a 'quick' stress test is not a stress test

I start with ASUS Real Bench stress test like Mongoled. Even after your standard stress tests, I've still found games that bring a system down, so that seems to be the hardest thing to test for other than playing.
