First of all, i love AIDA, as this a thing from my childhood, which i was use with my Athlon 900 and i don't even remember how much years ago it was... I would like to thanks it's creators for this pure masterpiece
Testing my 6600k OC modes i was running few popular stability tests: Prime, OCCT, Linx -- all of them burn my CPU quite well and using top clocks i always get an errors or reached temperature limits (i have only performa 10).
When i'm doing AIDA Stability Test, my CPU heat is far lower, than with "guys" from above, somewhere around 60-65 C* and without any errors! So it is possible to add more MHz's and make voltages lower a bit, then i was needed for OCCT and others.
so, my question is: can i rely on AIDA stress test and keep my OC boundaries higher, than i'd reached with those hellish apps? If you gonna ask me, i use my PC just for games and browsing.
I understand, that software from my example designed for ultimate testing purposes, with abnormal CPU overloading which gonna never happen in real life. BUT... if my CPU is ok with AIDA stress test, may be this means i could play any games being OC'ed without risk to receive BSOD or having some of my cores "lagging" at the background?
ps: i think AIDA is not using AVX instructions when stress testing, no,?
Please, help me figure out with this one.
please, don't kill me if this thread already exist somewhere
