Why are you using Linpack? Use OCCT. 30 minutes custom test, 2 hours for full stability.

Err, my case is going to be enclosed in the desk, so a household fan wouldn't work well. It'd only be good for like suicide runs. I do have an AMD stock fan, but I have no idea how I can position it anywhere near the NB and SB.

What's so bad with Linpack? I thought you should aim for at least 5 passes of Linpack to make sure that your system is really stable.

I'm planning to get at least 10 passes on Linpack, then around 3 hours of OCCT, and 2 to 3 hours of Memtest. I'm running Memtest so I can try to get tighter timings.
