I think most people call "stable" the ability to run for anywhere from 6 hours to 24 hours without errors, depending on the program. I always use about 8 hours for most any program. If you are showing errors in any program, I would say that you might have to go back to do some tweaking. Of course, I've never used Vista, so I can't speak to any testing programs running under it. Anyways, good luck.

what do you do if you want to OC your cpu? 6hours to 24 hours is too much for me >_>

Unfortunately that's what you need to do if you want to ensure that your OC is fully stable.

I do 1 hr primes as I'm trying to find max OC, followed by 2 Hours OCCT, then several 3dmark runs, and finally at least 8 hours (it's usually 16+) of prime to finish it off.

Once that's done, I start folding (or boincing) and if I can get a couple of weeks out of that without errors I figure my job is done. :)

There you go. If OCCT stable for 2 hours, then you're good to go.

Much better.

how ironic--the process of making your computer go faster is slow and arduous...
