Default Good to go or no?

I just got my build up and running, been gaming on it for a few hours. Is it safe to run pcmark05 yet or should I wait? I have no clue if there is break in time on these things.



I think sig santa is about to own me too

Some people believe break-ins are the benchmarks, looping them for hrs. I suggest you start off by playing games like HL2 and such for a while, then go w/ really graphic intensive games like BF2 and such.

'break ins' aren't important unless you're planning on overclocking dude....run whatever program you want
