My System Specs

Default Couple of quick questions

I just installed a new i7 950 and ran the large FFTs in Prime95 and I'm assuming that the temps are well in line with my, air cooled, overclock?

I'm also assuming that to validate that test it needs to be run for 24 hours?

Also, I'm assuming that it would be a good idea to run the Small FFTs, the blend test, as well as the IntelBurn test?

One other question. From what I've read you want to keep the core temps below 75c?

SmallFFT is better than Large for CPU testing.

Blend is good for testing memory.

I personally don't like IBT but others do.

No one program is 100% capable of making sure a system is stable.

Only F@H does that :P

for maximum stable overclocks yeah, try not to goo too far up. some say keep it under 85, others 75. it depends how much you want to push it.
