Prime 1-3hrs, think your stable, play a CPU intensive game = BSOD= FAIL

but very doubtful.
Prime 4-6hours, think your stable enough - play CPU intensive game = maybe happy gaming again for a couple hours then = BSOD
Prime 6-8hours, think your stable enough - play CPU intensive game = hapy gaming for hours but a small chance you might BSOD
= NOT FAIL
but not ideal ( you might crash 1 out of 30 games of bfbc2).
Prime 12hrs+, should be stable - play CPU intensive game = happy gaming and a whole lot more and a VERY small chance of BSOD
= For ME that's an EPIC WIN
Don't take a chance, especially when your doing awesome on bfbc2 and suddenly bsod, that's a fail on your part if you run 1-3 hours prime blend
To be as close to 100% stability try running a little longer in the end it's all about stability. I wanna be able to run fraps aswell or do some encoding in the background if I want to, that's how stable I would like my rig to be, it's not just the plessure of gaming aswell you know!!!
Some may not agree with me but each to their own, I don't think you'll find me posting a thread anytime soon regard bsoding lol well not on LOAD that it is. lolEdited by munaim1 - 7/22/11 at 8:12pm
