    IBT recommends to execute 5 or more tests - my question is, is 5 enough?

    Would trying 10 or more tests mean more stability if passed 100% or will it not make a difference?



    Thanks

    if its for the first time-I'd recommend 10 tests with all the amount of ram

    but to check for stability after u OC- 5 tests would be ample enough-cuz it stresses the CPU by a good length:)

    on my striker i usually went 5 to see if it hardlocked then 20 and if it passed i assumed it was stable :p

    I use LinX instead, but it's based on the same calculations (linpack) so it should be the same. I normally use between 30 and 40 rounds as the last check to make sure it's absolutely stable. 5-10 rounds is more than enough if you're just trying to progress your OC (testing new settings, voltages etc.)

    Yup I run Linpack testing 30-40 times as well. I have had errors after 30 times before, (never after 40) so it's a good idea to run it at least 30 times overnight.

    Then another 24 hours of Prime95.

    Maybe.. But no one gave a link.

    Thx for the link Death_LV.

    Good app.. Got my cpu 10C hotter then prime95 could.

    What was odd even with my cpu at 70C asus Q-Fan thought it'd be fine to keep my fan at like ~1500 rpm (it runs at over 3000rpm in full 100% performance mode)

    Stable none the less.

    Just a hot board I guess.. Even the northbridge runs at 60C all the time hehe.

    It actually ran cooler when I first got it.. But despite its low temps it was really unstable, then I sent it to asus for repair, got it back and it runs hotter but perfectly stable at least =)

    I would seriously consider sticking a small NB fan on that. My chipset never goes above 43C
