If you get an error message in the AIDA64 System Stability Test, then your system is not stable :( We usually recommend to run the test for at least a few hours to make sure all your system components are heated up to their maximum temperature.

i tryd runing the stress test again this time at 4.3 with 1.12 cpu volts. during the test i started gettin graphicl artifacts on my screen my computer became very slow but still responding.my cpu max temp during the test that was reached was around 72 c about 25 mins in and The test lasted for aproximetly 2 hours and 18 mins but insted of a crash my computer just turnd of and i could not turn it on again at first.Tryd switch of power supply waiting a few seconds then turnd it back on again and my pc turnd on again. I understand that this faild but considering the other time i tryd the test at 1.105volts and crashed at 25 mins must meen that im not to far of from finding a stable voltage right? but why did my pc turn of sundly like that..can u tell me what that could meen and if the artifacts on screen is normal when runnign this test. thanks

Graphical artifacts and sudden power-off are both critical issues that reflect the instability of your system at the settings you used. A sudden power-off is usually due to overheating: the BIOS senses one of the components (usually either the motherboard or the CPU) is too hot, and it powers the system off to prevent fatal hardware damages.

thats strange because i monitor my tempratures and none were close to the max limit. hotest was the cpu witch was 72c i no ivy bridge gets hot but that was still within safe limits. can it be over voltage on a component like powersupply or somthing? if so what do i need to look for. i use hardware monitor and asus thermal monitor
