In the real world, hardly anything will stress your system 100% for that long. I mean as long as we get FPS increases in game....be happy right?

Btw, as you can tell i'm not a bencher at all, so I really don't care for stuff like this.

People seem to have this misconception that just because you dont plan on running your pc at 100% extreme loads, that prime95 isnt necessary. P95 makes your pc as stable as its going to be at any load, not just extreme loads. Without stress testing your pc you could be gaming fine, but at low load it might BSOD.

Missuse of words, P95 does not make your PC stable it tests your PCs stability. I couldnt be bothered with serious stress testing have far better things to do. I give p95 a go for 15 min than fly FSx, any instability it will crash, sometimes after an hr, where as i can do anything else and im fine.

Terrible advice.

While not the most sound advice, and generally should be disregarded I understand his opinions because as far as stability testing goes you can get 12-24 hour Prime95 results with other software in much less time.

A 20-30 pass run of Linpack LinX at 80-90% memory utilization (usually takes about an hour) will find any and all instability issues. I've done 12 hour Prime95 runs at 80-90% memory utilization and still ended up crashing after doing LinX. There are other programs that can do what Prime95 does in much less time and more efficiently. LinX is one of those. I swear by a 20-30 pass run of LinX @ 80-90% memory utilization. I usually run two of those and one Intel Burn Test Custom @ 90% memory utilization. After that I'm assured that the overclock is stable. Doing anything more than that is unnecessary and redundant. More time doesn't necessarily mean more stable.
