When you stress test, your checking that the system is 100% fully stable under all conditions. This is important if your going to be running an overclock 24/7. Otherwise it is likely you will experience infrequent BSOD, lockups while in the heat of an online cod4 match when your tied, crashes after working on that assignment for an hour while forgetting to save, etc. Do your self a favor, if your going to OC, follow the advice of the experts and do it right the first time.
