Well if you don't run a minimum 24 hour stress test you could blue screen while playing bf3 causing much rage and frustration.

As much as 'faster is better', rock solid stability is always trump because a blue screen while in the middle of something is the ultimate inconvenience.

The other hand with 'ninja' overclocking a friends machine is that he may not even notice a performance difference while heat and power consumption jumps way up.


On the topic of world record overclocking, stability is not even in their dictionary. If it can get into windows for a screenshot of CPU-Z and bluescreen a nano second after the screenshot it's still good!
