Is that the same with IBT?

Yeah, but it needs around 23 hours to complete all the FFTs in a blend test. See the computation here: http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet/9690#post_19039349

PS: Blend is both test (CPU and RAM together) IIRC and so you have to run that one longer...
Thanks but I'm not really comfortable with Linux so I'll pass on that.

Run blend mode which uses all shorts of FFT's. To consider yourself stable, opinions vary on the "For how long should I run Prime 95" question. In general, 12 hours is ok to say that you are stable. But keep in mind that to run all the tests, Prime 95 needs almost a day.
Hope it helps. Cheers.
Well, 5% is enough for the services, right? Many say that 90-95% is enough for these tests, right?
And yes, like I said above it needs around 23 hours to complete all FFTs in a Blend test. I ran it for 29 hours and made sure that all FFTs were done by taking a peek at results.txt.
