    First, I test my cooling loop to make sure it is running and there are no burps.

    Then I will do a post boot to make sure the motherboard is "happy" with the components.

    Then I will do a MemTest+ and Drive Tests to make sure I don't get any errors on them.

    Then I will install the OS, download and install the latest drivers.

    Then I will run Prime95 for about 1/4/8 hours to verify the CPU and cooling are sufficient.

    Then I will OC the CPU and rinse repeat with Prime95 until I find the right OC.

    Then I will likely download Afterburner and GPU-z.

    I will OC the GPU and test it out, monitoring temperatures.

    I will likely run the latest GPU benchmark software to verify stability. Rinse repeat until I find the right OC.

    Then I will run the latest bench test software suites to check overall performance.

    for my last build, I ran Prime Torture Test for 24 hours with Valley running in he background.

    That's all you really need to do, assuming it doesn't crash.
