Im Scared

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I want to test my CPU in Prime95 but I dare not drive more than a few hours.
Is so damn scared off degradation.
Help me to persuade myself

What's your overclock and your voltage?

Also, Prime is irrelevant these days. Go for IntelBurnTest. You'll know you're PC is stable in a matter of an hour (or less) versus 12 or 24 hours with Prime95.

as long as you are not running a ridiculous overclock, its fine. monitor the temps occasionally too.

This is true most of the time, but not all the time. I've seen some higher temps on my system with P95 than IBT before. Also, I've had one core fail in P95 after several hours after having run IBT for a couple of hours with no problem. I set the RAM size to a proper amount to maximize GFlops and everything. I personally like to use P95 and IBT to stress test. Do a couple hours of IBT then go overnight with P95 to guarantee stability.

let me break your fear... the only thing about electronic is heat that will kill it.

If you run Prime95 on stock, you shouldn't be scare at all because they are made to withstand the temperature. Even for overclocking as long you have proper solid cooling system.

If the chip burn off on stock, that's intel fault not yours.

As long as you're using reasonable temps and voltages, you could leave Prime running for days (but why would you even do that?). My test for stability is this... here it comes...


Daily usage


Seriously, test it in the environment that you know you'll be using it in. If you normally game, test it by gaming. If you normally run Prime95 while working on your computer, test it with Prime95.

I don't see how it would be intel fault if OP manages to go past the max temps.

You can go up to about 1.45 V with your cooler.

That is not high, and your temperatures are fine. You can run prime95 as much as you want
