Default Prime95

Hey guys,
I've just downloaded Prime 95, mainly to test my over clocking (managed to get the old browsing rig below over 1ghz!)
But yeah I ran the "torture test" to make sure that my computer is secure, how long do you run it for? Because at first I thought it ran for a set amount of time, till i figured out that it ran forever lol.

Thanks.

12+ hours using large in place FFTs I'd consider stable

24 hours is considered 100% stable, but 8 hours is good enough for me.
