What is Prime 95? Is it some sort of video game or something? I see this referenced a lot and as far as I can tell, it's something to put the system under great load to test stuff (though exactly what, that I don't know).

More about : prime frequently

We "all" use Prime95 to test the stability of our system.

The purpose of Prime95 is twofold:
(1) test a prospective machine to see if it is stable enough to execute the Prime95 code
(2) test for Mersenne primes.
