My stable is 1010/345 24/7
If you are not getting a small pop up from task bar(Win 7) stating the driver has crashed then it's your clocks. [Not all configurations can support the same OC.
This. Just because someone else can get xxx/yyy doesn't mean you can. You need to experiment. As someone else pointed out you know you are close when it goes days before getting a dead. A slight tweak from there will likely make it stable for weeks. I have one rig going now for 3 weeks. Usually I don't get more than a month due to software changes, dying USB drives, power outages, etc.
Also just because you can get xxx/yyy with 50F ambient (input air) temp doesn't mean you can get xxx/yyy with 105F ambient temp.
