Default Re: Prime95 error Q's

but no program/game is gonna stress your processor like intel burn test, i dont see the point, like someone else said in another thread just stress your CPU with the things you do, if it crashes just change a few things, so if you game alot, go play your games and if its stable, go overclock some more.

That's not very good reasoning. Intel burn test physically stresses all components of the processor to make sure they are sound, if it passes that it will pass anything. Its also a lot easier to let it run for 8 minutes and tell you if its good than playing crysis for 2 hours and then you computer crashes.

sorry but running an unstable cpu that is game stable doesn't make sense to me. I'd rather know my cpu is ready to take a beating and still be stable.

I agree 100%. Its just 8 minutes of your time, much easier than running orthos or prime95 for 12 hours.
