I guess you guys are totally correct...
I am trying to pass those tests because I've read dozens and dozens of threads and sources during the last days on how to stability test and what is considered stable, and many people recommend different stuff and all.
There is no scientific stuff I need to do. Gaming mostly, game development and some rendering in the future. So CPU stability is an requirement, but not in the edge-case area.
I shouldn't worry so much on passing every test... It's just that my last pc crashed regularly with BSOD and I want to prevent that from happening.
Guess I will throw away the idea that the Linpack test has to pass. I can't even get it to work on 5.0 GHz, so it's a total waste of time.
I am following your advice now,
, (again), you seem so helpful through all the different forums and threads I have found.
Starting with the Cinebench r20 tests, because they've proven to weed out instable OC's quite fast for me, and than I will evaluate again if 5.1 GHz is possible for me, otherwise I'll go down to 5.0 GHz and try this one.
Got both softwares installed already, so will be quick done tonight and tomorrow during my workday.
Will get back with feedback on how it went (:
