Two Instance of Prime95 on Conroe?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is this possible, both of my cores are stable (well, 3 hours stable) seperatly, but when I start two instance of prime95, one fails (it can be CPU1 or CPU0, the most recent prime keeps going, the one that was on before it fails). Is this due to the shared cache?

Possibly, or it could be your RAM.

All cores are not created equally. Sometimes one core needs more voltage for stability. With my 6600 its pretty consistent, core 0 craps out and core 1 can go on forever.

With a dual core its not really a full load if your run 2 instances of prime seperately. Its best to run them at the same time.
