    Well, some say use Sandra, others ram stretcher .. some say underclock and lower volts..
    So I was thinking there may actually be some folks here with oc'ing and burning.. I can easilly drop the oc and burn at undervolts..
    thanks again all.

    What i do is get orthos and lower the volts in the bios 1 step at a time.than stress test all cores for 30+min than keep lowering the volts and stress test it again for 30+min keep doing that till you get an error and when you get an error up the volts and run it overnight.If it is error free than run F@H for about 1 week so it stress test ur CPU and you do some good.If it hasn't had a crash or lost a WU than congrats you have successfully burned in your CPU.
    BTW do all of that at STOCK speeds.not under stock or over.

    i just run a stability test (orthos/OCCT) at stock for 24 hours. its also a good way to see if my new hardware needs to be warrantied from the getgo :)

    i find max oc out of the box, then come up witha happy oc, (usually about 10% less then max, depending on where ram clocks fall, voltages are, etc, etc.) then run it there a full 24 hours to burn in and error check.

    just curious? what is undervolting really spose to accomplish? i guess besides saving u the time of overclocking?

    Well, I have read eight articles and really, since the Science of OC is unknown, and it is ART, the concenses really is, "do what works"
    So, Seems many do either or both, overclock overvolt or undervolt.

    I am now ussing Water bathing my vinal tubing and running two Orthos, going on 15 hours .. amazing reasults by emersing the tubes in a tall jar, one gallon, of Ice water, lower cores 6 and 8 c respectively!.. only problem is it is very temporary and I HATE having water anywhere near electronics.. SIC! but this may help me , with the burn in to go stable orthos for 4.0!...
