Yeah, I've had settings that ran just fine with 17+ hours of Prime, but setting LinX or Prime to use ~90% of RAM revealed the remaining instabilities pretty quickly.

I've never used Prime and never will. I've lost count of the number of times I've seen someone run it for 12 hours+ only to have the system crash when they start a game or something. I've never had a system crash after it has successfully run Aida64 (even back when it was called Everest)

I'll reload 47 and grab some screen shots for all pages.
I began working on 48...

tried all of your tips to no avail.

i'm gonna try some offset/turbo OCing and if that doesn't fix it, i'll get some new mems...

No video till after windows loads while using SLI. Doesn't happen every time, but enough to be an annoyance. Especially when trying to fiddle with overclocking and not being able to get into bios (ER... It's in bios but can't see anything). Doesn't do this with one card... Ever.

Only problem is Aida64 is not free and prime95 is.

It might not work 100% of the time, but for the great majority of users it does.

I'm not suggesting people don't use it. I'm just explaining why I don't

eh - oh well. I do think switching to offset mode is better overall.
