It's only going to add a hair more stress to your stress test! | Report abuse Reply to twelve25 Cygnus x-1 CPUs Expert December 30, 2012 11:35:18 AM I prime and use the computer for email, docs, and surfing, never had a problem. I don't think it effects the test any. I would open the programs/webpage before you start the test however. | Report abuse Reply to Cygnus x-1 pauls3743 CPUs Expert December 30, 2012 11:46:22 AM It's ok as long as what you're planning to run alongside prime95 is not cpu intensive. Web browsing and general office tasks are ok, you'll find gaming, picture/video editing and other cpu intensive tasks a problem. | Report abuse Reply to pauls3743 Cygnus x-1 CPUs Expert December 30, 2012 11:50:23 AM Yes you need to keep it to relatively low system resource programs. | Report abuse Reply to Cygnus x-1 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Using the computer while running prime95> Related ressources: ForumBSOD while running Prime95 ForumCPU overheat while running prime95 ForumError while running Prime95 !
