      Intel Burn Test on maximum stress level for CPU testing. Although, this was only done on my dads office machine to ensure it wouldn't crash on him. I only OC to benchmark stability levels.

          I use none of the above, i just run Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool, and then configure it to my own preferences using the configuration program supplied.

          https://downloadcenter.intel.com/con...&Dwnldid=19792





          (above picture IPDT was run with a default configuration)


          Its good because it also tells you how far under the max temps you are, and it also stresses the imc.

          My theory is if intel's own tool, designed to test its own cpu's stability says its stable, its stable.. (in my testing, every overclock that passed the IPDT stability test has been 100% reliable till the date of selling/upgrading the hardware)

          for amd i just use prime 95..

                    I use Memtest86 for memory then when it passes that it has to complete 50 runs of Intel Burn Test with ALL available RAM tested....

                    I've not got the patience or the time to let prime95 run for for 24Hrs...

                    I've always used Intel Burn Test and never had any issues with stability doing that way.

                          Nothing like a good burn in test from LinX/IBT.

                            Depends which CPU.

                            AMD - Prime95 blend 8hour run at the least - prefer 24hours
                            Intel - IBT max - 10 runs is usually enough followed by 8 hours prime

                              Just wondering, no one has mentioned AMDOverDrive for AMD chips

                              I wonder though, surely that's the best for an AMD chip? It's built with AMD in mind.

                              Something to ponder about
