I want to run the blend test because I am trying to check the ram More about : prime95 geofelt a c 341 à CPUs a c 130 K Overclocking June 23, 2012 6:16:48 PM Best way to test ram is to use memtest86+. Run it for a couple of full passes with NO errors. For prime95, run it untill the cpu temperature reaches it's maximum, and then perhaps an hour should be sufficient. Specify rounding checking. Again. you should get NO errors. I really don't think you can benefit from much longer runs. m 0 l dragonsamus a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking June 24, 2012 11:35:29 PM When overclocking my CPU I tested by running Prime95 for an hour on torture test. You can run longer but an hour should be fine. :-) m 0 l Related resources 100 Degrees in Prime95 - Forum OC i7 4770k 4.2 temps sky rocket on Prime95 - Forum PC shut-down during Prime95 test, won't power back on. - Forum What is prime95 Doing? - Forum Stress Test Problems with Prime95 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
