    i have corsair xms3200xlpt at 230x2 at it passes super pi, should i assume this is stable


    cpu is at 37 C
    MB is at 28 C

    all on air idle.

    No. SuperPi isn't really a stress test. It only calculates Pi and doesn't use the full intruction sets of the CPU.

    You should run a bunch of different tests to assume stability.

    Prime95, OCCT, Sandra, PCMark, 3DMark, then try some games if some of those pass.

    32M is usually a fair indication that a system might be stable,

    but bbvdd2 is right, its not a stress test.

    of all the benchmarks 32M SPI is the hardest to pass, so most benchers class 32M as stable (fully bench stable).

    i can do 32M @ 3080Mhz, cant SP2004 much over 2970 @ the same vcore.

    What I've started to do is use superpi as a kind of preliminary stability checker. Since it is relatively quick, I go in extremely small increments using clockgen until I get an error. I then roll back maybe 10 MHz and then stability test that using 3dmark01, memtest, and a day or two of Prime95. If I can pass all that, I generally consider it stable.

    not for stabilty,

    best way to know how good something is for stablity is how long it lasts.

    to complete a test your comp only needs to be stable for that length of time.

    not a bad sandra score, DDR2 isnt that fast due to its high latencies, but they are improving in both speed and timings and it is the future.
