Do you have any tips on how long I should run the stress tests for? thank you Jerry m 0 l DeusAres December 20, 2012 5:15:54 AM Most people run it anywhere from 20 minutes to 24 hours. I'd personally recommend you run it for at least 12 hours. 24 hours would be optimal. Leave it on overnight and check it out every now and then for errors. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/252077-29-long-prime9... Go to the above link and read what the dude with gold badge says.
