Re: Smoother Performance At Stock CPU Speed?
I don't 8.5 minutes of stress testing tells you anything at all.
I've seen unstable systems run Prime95 small fft test for hours on end before problems show up.
What I do when overclocking a processor is run Prime95 small fft test for a few days on all the cores and if it's still running on all of them at that point I consider it stable.
Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on...
