    What CPU stability test are recommended?

    I have been using Asus' Extreme Tuning utility (Intel) for stability testing of my OC. Works well for me. If the machine is not stable, I usually know within 3-4 minutes. What test is recommended? How long do you test? I know some applications aren't recommended. Thanks.

    XTU works well for testing non AVX workloads. Between this and Realbench are the main two utilities I use personally. The tests should ideally be run for 1 to 2 hours minimum.


    The other alternative for AVX is the x256 benchmark available from hwbot. This lets you assign multiple encoding instances.

    Prime 95...and by 95 I mean 95 hours straight! If the CPU survives that you know it's going to be stable for the few days it lives afterwards

    I like the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool 64bit. I am not a fan of Prime95 its load is not very realistic and hard on the CPU. And Windows Memory Diagnostic to test my memory. I don't like the Intel XTU for either but a quick 5 minutes test with it (memory and CPU) will tell if you are wildly unstable very quickly. A weird test I also like to do is Disk Cleanup while other disk intensive operations are going on (Crystal Disk Mark for instance). I have had what I thought is a stable OC and had my system fail with that disk test. But I run VROC RAID 0 too that fortunately also benefits from OCing.

    BTW-I noticed handbrake will crash the PC if not tuned correctly. I actually used it to hone in on the correct Vcore for this sample.
