    I personally use the Blend Test, as it tests the memory and CPU. I will usually run this test for at *least* 12 hours before I'll consider an OC stable or not. Some people use less time, but I prefer more as it is around the 8 hour mark that the Memory and North Bridge are really tested.

    Yep, Blend Test for general testing is fine. Just start it, the program will automatically run the proper number of threads, etc for your CPU.

    I don't know if they've changed P95, but I thought it was a single thread. Is that still the case ?

    Also, Intelburntest is straight nasty. I'd use that!

    It will run until you stop it.

    Keep in mind what your doing to the chip as to loading though.
    Most people overnight.
