How long do you run Prime 95 after a new build?
>>
30min or so. Honestly if it doesn't overheat after 5 you're not going to have any heat problems from a normal workload.
>>
~3hrs
>>
Let it run overnight.

If you don't wake up because your house burned down, you won't have to worry about your computer crashing :^)
>>
>>52492269
*After OCing. Never stress tested a stock build
>>
>>52492195
1 hour.
After a new overclock, 24 hours.
>>
What's prime 95?
>>
1 hour baseline; stock
4 hours every additional increment; +.5/1 mult or 2mhz BCLK

>>52492329
Prime number program; simple description
You can use it to stress test cpus
>>
>>52492195
Never, it puts an unrealistic load on the cpu and fucks up newer intel cpu's.

I usually just stress test for 1h or so anyway.
>>
Haven't had a reason to for 5 years. 2500k and all that.
>>
> using deprecated software for windows 95

good 1

I'd advise against using prime95 anymore and would instead suggest about an hour of aida64, which is both safer to run on modern platforms and can reveal instability much faster

>it puts an unrealistic load on the cpu and fucks up newer intel cpu's.
Every guide out there tells you to use version 26.6 with Haswells
>>
>>52492841
This. AVX a shit.
>>
>>52492195
1 Hour.
>>
>>52492195
I don't. I also never OC, though.

>>52493072
>powerful instructions allowing you to make the most of your silicon
>a shit because it makes unnecessary torture tests run too hot
k
>>
>>52493268
Name something that uses that instruction set.
>>
>>52492195
Honestly if it lasts for 15 minutes then it's fine.
>>
>>52492195
about 5 mins seems right
>>
>>52492195
0 minutes
>>
>>52492195
About tree fiddy
>>
a month so i know whether my windows server is stable
>>
>>52492195
Zero, because Intel Burn Test is superior.
>>
None, because that is a terrible way to test 'burn in' even if that were a thing.
>>
>>52492195
I don't even know what prime95 is...
