    Default Orthos and prime 95 not real world tests for "stability" for some

    I've been playing with my system for a long time and the usage patterns of what I do, versus that of Orthos, prime 95 and Intel's thermal analysis tool, process data in an unnatural way for everyday use patterns.I can overclock higher and get errors in orthos or prime 95 (not immediately) and have everything else on my system run fine, when stability break's it's a matter of temperature and stress on (usually) certain parts of the cpu, if you monitor the temperature over time for you're actual usage patterns and compare them to things like orthos, Prime 95 and 3DMark, there is a discrepency.For some people they may actually not need perfect orthose/prime results to consider their system 'stable' since the temperature range never gets into the zone where it will create errors.

    Thats true in one way. But i bet youd still get more regular crashes. The rule of thumb is if you fail stress tests then eventually your system will crash in real world applications. Also there needs to be a benchmark for oveclocking. Suppose we could call it a quality control test. Also an overclcock should always be in the safe temp range to be considered a safe 24/7 overclcock. So a failed stress test shouldnt come down to high temps.

    Have you tested your theory and tried to run an overclock in real world applictaions. which isnt prime or orthos stable?

    Would be intersting to see the results.

    It's always about temperature, there's a temperature zone when monitoring the cpu when it gets to a certain temp for a period of time. I've been using my system for a while above the regular gamut of orthose, prime and other tests and not had it crash in ages. I also do heavy duty gaming (supreme commander/Forged alliance), as Crysis and Call of duty, no crashes.I use Intel TAT to record a CSV logfile of temps over time while I use the system, even when doing hardcore gaming the temps never break into the "crash zone" (i.e. calculation errors) because they simply do not use the cpu the way the hardcore stability apps do. So they are not truly representative of usage patterns for I imagine quite a few people.

    If you run other processes (for example open control panels for graphics card ) and other minor things then the calculation load put on cpu during testing with for example occt is reduced from 99.xx% to maybe 97.xx%. I guess if you want to tailor your testing to your usage some variation of the above could be made to work
