I disagree with that.
I have a celeron 1.0A on an abit ST6. When I first got it, it took 1.65V to be stable at 10x133 ([email protected]
hours), with the retail heatsink.
After I'd had it for a week, my AX-7 came in the mail. The first thing I did after I installed that HSF, was drop my voltage to 1.6 and try prime. It failed in 10 minutes, so I pushed it back up to 1.65V, and left it there. It ran fine, for a little over a week, with something always running in the background (prime95, cpu stability test, burnp6, etc). Just tonight, I noticed my temps weren't as high as they were a week ago (but my case air temp was the same 30C it's always been). It kinda reminded me of some burn-in stories I had written off as mumbo-jumbo a long time ago. Anyway, I dropped my voltage a full .1V (to 1.55V), and began to run prime. so far, it has run for 1hr:33min. If prime is going to fail on me, it has always done it in the first 30 minutes. If it's still running when I wake up in the morning, I do believe I'm going to have to become a believer in this burn-in "voodoo-magic"
Is there anything else I should run to test my cpu for stability? I usually consider it stable after it has run prim95, burnp6, and cpu stability test (each individually) for 12 hours. Is that good enough, or should I do some more tests?
UPDATE: I may have spoken too soon...prime failed at 1 hour, 51 minutes...I'm gonna give the voltage a .025 bump, and see if that works.
