  1. How long do you guys usually run Stress Prime when overclocking? Also, what test do you do, Memory, Cpu, or Blend? For how long? Thanks.

    Any system that can run 16-24 hours without errors is stable IMO.

    When you're trying to find your maxĂ­mum cpu speed you normally would set your RAM at a low divider so your memory won't be holding you back.

    There are also alternatives to Prime95 like SysTool.

    Alright good my computer is now Prime stable. CPU test = 19 hours, RAM test 23 hours. Thank you for responding.

    I usually do it when I'm about to go out early in the day, so it runs for at least 20 hours(I sleep long).

    I run the CPU test, as I do not overclock my RAM in the slightest.
