Stress testing info needed

I'm using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and Stressing for 1 Hour would that be enough time to deem it to be stable so i can find the lowest voltage and settings before stressing for 8 Hours

Thanks for replies in advanced

Stress testing can be tricky. Some use Prime, some IBT. You can pass one but not the other sometimes. I have not tried the stress test from XTU. I use IBT (Intel Burn Test). That puts stress on your cpu real hard. Then if you pass that, try to do other things, like your favorite game.

Newbie question my stock max CPU voltage is 1.176 with turbo enabled

I am still working on my overclock. CPU Voltage 1.170 @ 4400mhz is it safe to keep decreasing CPU Voltage until unstable once again sorry for the newbie question and thanks in advanced

I will stress test with Intel Burn Test and if it passes that, I will stress with AIDA64 for at least 12 hours IF I'm happy with those settings. What you can do is find where it is unstable by using Intel Burn Test and then bump it up just a tad and then do the 12+ hour stress test.

Yes, just take it slow and go down in small increments until it won't pass Intel Burn Test, then bump it back up until it will, then let it run either Prime95 or AIDA64 for 12 hours.

This is the one area where I fail - stress testing for long periods of time. I usually go an hour, and if all is good I call it a day. I'm also of the attitude that there's really nothing in normal everyday use to push the system like these stress tests do so I see no need to run for them 12+ hours. On the other hand I don't try to push my system to the edge so my method works for me.

My backup system is a Q6600 (2.4gig) system which has been running at an overclocked speed of 2.83 gig since 07... on air. When I first stress tested it using prime 95, I just let it run for an hour. That's it. Yeah, it wasn't a huge overclock, but 7 years, and still running. That'll work
