I normally run 1 hour to make absolutely sure that everything is maxed out, but 1/2 hour would probably be sufficient for temps.

2. For stability testing, is Prime 95 or Orthos a better program? It appears that they run similar tests
Orthos is just a front-end for prime95 which used to be a PITA to set up for dual core. The latest version of Prime95 will run 4 cores on its own.

2b. Is there a helpfile I can look at so I can setup two instances of Prime 95? I have thus far been unsuccessful at finding any information on this)
The latest version of Prime95 does it for you.

3. Are there premade game benchmark programs that will run say, Prey or Doom 3, in different areas of the game and log the FPS? Or do I have to play the game myself in various areas and log my results with fraps?
This is a tough one as it's hard to get away from the "synthetic" benchmark stigma.
