Question MSI afterburner not showing 6gb usage during stress tests for 1060 6gb.

Hello

I'm kind of new to overclocking I've done it in the past but that was a few years ago.

When i'm trying to stress test my gpu on a new clock MSI afterburner monitoring shows only 1/2 gb of mem usage I can go in a game and it usually pops to 6gb depending on the game.

My question is if it's only using 1/2gb of the memory to do the stress test is it still a legit stress test that I can trust my system will be stable using those settings?
