Default hardware failure

So i leave orthos running ovenight at 3.26ghz (408x8). When i wake up to check the test, it was stopped at 6hrs 11 minutes for a hardware failure. Does this mean it was an unstable overclock, because everything is running fine.

it may be a LITTLE unstable, but usually 6 hrs is a good indication thats the system is pretty rock solid. some people like to run it for 8-12hrs, but ive never had any problems w/ my system after only a 4 hr orthos test.

if possible you may want to up your vcore a bit, but make sure the cpu doesnt get too hot. (an dont go above 1.5v)

Just try upping the voltage a "LITTLE" and see first. I like to leave a stability test running for 8 hours. If you fold though you want it to be stable 24/7....

Here's your answer. Might be a bit of reading: Folding@home - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For your topic, I would say that should be fine for Orthos to run that long. You might want to up the Vcore a notch so that a bit more juice will flow to it.
