Burn-in and stability test....

Run OCCT or a small fft prime95 torture test for 12 hours... Then run a large fft torture test. Do a few 32mb super pi's and you should be good to go if you can do all of the afformentioned tests w/o errors.

If you pass all of those then bump up your volts and your OC! Obviously make sure to keep your temps within optimal operating zones.

Whats the TCaseMax on that chip of yours? (If it supports it).Quote
