How long to run Prime for?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna see what my memory can really do today and tomorrow, but will need some sort of stability test.

I'm going to use Prime95, and choose the test that stresses the memory the most, but not sure how long to leave it running for it to be called a stable overclock.

To be able to call it an utterly "stable" overclock, you need to run Prime95 for 8 hours.

BTW, I advise you use SP2004 or Orthos instead - their both Prime95 but with a nicer GUI
