How do you guys stress test your CPU overclocks?

I've been hearing talk here and there that using stress tests with AVX is not a good idea because it achieves temperatures you can never achieve in any other situation. But if you don't stress test the AVX instructions, how can you be sure the AVX component is stable? Is there a way to test AVX moderately? So that it is still used, but at lower temps?

Do you guys not stress test with AVX at all? What's your workflow?

That said, most people here are morons who say Prime95 AVX is "too severe" or "unrealistic". The whole point of a stress test is to work the CPU as hard as it can possibly be worked. If the CPU survives that it's sure to survive any vidya games, kernel compilations, photo rendering, or anything else you want to throw at it. Do P95 blend - latest version, with AVX - for 24 hours straight to validate your final overclock.
>>
All you're doing is hammering your CPU with floating point shit that literally no other application does to that extent. If you want to burn test your CPU with "that" version of prime95 and use small FFT mode, you're just proving that your CPU can handle running prime95 in small FFT mode.

You can compile, render 3D art, encode video, and play 3 games simultaneously and your CPU will still never get hammered with floats the same way prime95 will.
>>
>>61130948
OCCT and Prime95 Small FFT for quick testing
Prime95 Blend for 12 hours or so for bulk stability and thermals testing
Throw in some IBT Very High for memory and IMC testing
Round it all off by running some distributed computing applications (SETI, Einstein, Milkyway, Collatz, and Asteroids) for up to a week and see if any workunits come back as invalid.

If all of the above passes cleanly, then i consider it stable.

Hey /g/, so I heard mining bitcoins is a thing again, how safe are mining clients? how do I know if my machine isn't also being used by other user to mine his bitcoins? is there any chart/website where I can find out how much money (USD) I can make out of mining a specific cryptocurrency with a specific GPU? Is the GPU wear still relevant if you keep mid/low temps?

The difference is I'll be able to sell the gold in 40 years, no one is going to want your stupid fucking crypto-currency in two years, let alone 40.

You could make safer, quicker money taking that money you're spending on graphics cards and buying safe stocks, you fucking mongoloid, but you clearly lack the chromosomes to figure out that.

>>61131572
Converting your shit to buy something isn't buying with it, they take it in US dollars when you convert it. It's as much a currency as your vidya is when you trade it in to get a discount on something new.

You can't buy shit with it and it's only worth money because people all think they are going to get rich off it.

Tell me roughly the price of a bag of rice, or really anything in bitcoin without comparing it to the US price. Oops you can't because nobody actually sells shit in bitcoins. This "currency" can't be used to buy anything. It's a fucking scam.

this is unironically the goat choice if you have to supply a lot of power to something outdoors temporarily, or onto something mobile where permanently wiring it isn't really practical.

I have underclocked with almost no impact to performance on my e728, but I'm not too worried about it spinning up. You might be, in which case I don't know.

It works really well, and if not, it's a great piece of placebo. I set up a large nagbar that gives me options "Set CPU governor" and I have "userspace" "performance" and "powersave" set up. Userspace keeps 1 core at 2.4 and puts the other at dynamic levels, performance ramps both up and powersave takes both down to 1.2 (I think). Might be more or less, but the boost in performance is there.
