Got new CPU / Mobo / Cooler put in today, I felt like I cheated somehow.
Installed XP, clicked install drivers and software, open ez tune 1 click and BAM Overclocked lawl :eek:

How long should I stress it for? or should I just play games and see what happens? I ran this little test and it passed after 15 mins..

It's a fairly small overclock for a E8400. Should be fine - yup, i'd just play games and use it for what you use it for. If you get any errors try reducing the overclock. If you really want to test it try Prime 95 or everest

you can downlod OCCT. its EZ to use and stress your CPU. watch temps, run it for 1 - 2 - 3 hours to be SURE its stable. You dont want your game to crash ;)
