My System Specs

Default

For stability, run Linx + Furmark - even if the GPUs aren't OC'd. Sometimes, a perfectly stable CPU will fail when gaming because the GPUs suck enough from the PSU's 12v rail to cause ripple or to cause line regulation deviation in excess of what is required to keep the CPU stable. And you don't have to run it for long - an hour is more than enough. 24hr Prime runs are a thing of the past.
