Intel burn test is great for testing cpu stability and it takes a lot less time than prime.

IBT will stress it alot more than prime will. You can also use Pi to stress.

I don't have enough patience for a an 8 hour test. I done 5 hours and still blue screened once in awhile. Thats why I prefer IBT.

I use coretemp for the cpu...i don't believe there is any temp monitors for ram though. I feel my ram to see if it is hot...but it is never, since i have a ram cooler.

There are a lot of cpu temp monitors out there. Everest, hwmonitor are two others i have used...but i prefer coretemp.
