Set it on the CPU test and run it for a couple of hours.

Since you have a dual core, you should open the program twice, both set on the CPU test function.

If you don't encounter any errors (it turns red and beeps at you) then your CPU is stable.

You can use the ram test to test if your ram is stable too.

first of all because you have dual core cpu then it's better that you use prime 95 ver 25.4 and you don't need to open it twice because it detect you cpu type and configure itself for dual process .

when you run prime95 for the first time you should go to Advanced menu and place check mark in front of Round off checking.

Also you can use Orthos which is prime base program and overclocker like you who have dual core cpu use it alot for testing the system stabilities after overclocking system.

I'm on my first build as well. Do you use Small FFTs or In-lace large FFTs when running a torture test?

IF you're new to the program and just want some basic stability testing for both the ram and the CPU, run blend test.

FFS you open the program ONCE and press start. use your computer like you normally do and if it crashes ur too high, and watch ur temps. its just a program you run in the background to check stability.

it's clear that have not used Prime for a long time, in the older versions that did not support dual core, you had to open the program twice to load both the cores. Not that the post you quotes is almost 3 years old.

Anyway old thread so no need in digging up the graves.
