According to my crash dumps, my CPU might be causing BSODs that I have been getting about once a month ever since I built this PC in July. I am really new to PC's and was wondering if running Prime95, as I was suggested to elsewhere, is safe. As in, even if it doesn't get too hot, will running it reduce the lifespan of the CPU? I don't want to run it, find out my CPU is fine, and then end up regretting running it (my severe OCD is the one to thank here that makes me feel this regret, even if the effects are negligible). Anyways, any input is appreciated. Thanks.
