My System Specs


On my Core i5 2500k Prime Blend will find errors faster than Linpack despite generating lower temperatures. Of course this is motherboard and CPU dependent - with my other motherboard (Intel DP67DE), I was bottlenecked by the board itself, so Linpack would find my throttling point faster than Prime95.

When I did my OC run, I did Linpack + MSI Kombustor to check thermals for about 1.5 hours, then Prime Blend for >8 hours for stability. After that, BOINC / F@H has been acting as a "constant" stability test.
