You are way too patient to let a test run that long. There are levels of stable, there is the once a day or perhaps every other day BSOD that I can handle b/c I system is soooo fast stable, there is the I got it exactly right and haven't crashed in months and game hard every night stable, then there is I got it oc'd to X.xx but turned it back half way so I don't burn out my $95 processor but it is still faster then stock stable.

The gap between the first 2 options is very close and usually works itself out over a couple of days. Play with it and use your pc as you normally would, that is the best way to see if your system is stable for you, beyond a couple of quick bench runs between changes when you are doing the initial OC'ing.
