I wouldn't leave that on its own bro.
Go back to stock settings, and do a full "sweep" on P95 - if you get an error or BSOD on stock -> like I used to: Very simple -> you got a hardware problem

Define professional Grim.
Some say that Aida64 doesn't stress test all your components.
Some say that Prime95 pushes more heat than IBT.
Long story short, you can believe all you want, and so can I
OUR advice on this guide is Prime 95, as it doesn't only denote stability, but security.
If you want to rely on AIDA64 that's fine, but if suddenly one day you get a BSOD, or a loss/data corruption, as your OC wasn't stable enough, then you can go and blame the "professionals"
I too trusted these "professionals" however when I came to installing drivers and software (ie. AI Suite II) from ASUS, as obviously recommended and demonstrated by these "professionals" - I found myself having to re-install windows 7 and terminating some services within windows, in order to get my PC booting up as it should.
If it wasn't for the help of these forums, my friends and my common knowledge of PC's, then with the help of these "professionals" I would have the following:
-127c showing for my motherboard temp
-A PC with an SSD booting up in 5mins when it can actually boot up in under 1min
-A PC that always seeks to open up certain services, that never exists
-A PC that has unecessary bloatware on it
-A PC that actually is not stable on stock
Luckily enough, I chose the better route, and put a huge middle finger up to ASUS and their so called professionals Edited by Totally Dubbed - 1/7/13 at 3:10pm
