mostafa Posted October 16, 2014 Share Posted October 16, 2014 Hello, I hope you are doing well. I recently updated my system to a X99S system. Ofcourse as any one who owns an extreme processor, I tried to Overclock it. While doing the stability test, I was getting very bad temps using Prime95. A lot has said the Prime95 is not the right choice when it comes to Haswell/Haswell-E. So I downloaded and bought a license for AIDA64 extreme edition. Running the stress test at 100% usage CPU and almost memory as well, I get very acceptable temps stock or overclocked. Now my question is, How reliable is the stress test using AIDA64 ? and how does it compare to Prime95 ? And how long should I keep the stress test running to confirm the the stock or overclocked system is 100% stable ? Thanks and regards, Mostafa Hijazi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
