post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just put together my Quad rig and need to check the stability of the overclock. What is the best way to test all 4 cores?

Thanks!

Agreed. You'll probly find out fairly quick if the OC is unstable with Prime.

A lot of perple switching from dual core (usulally running Orthos) are unaware that the most current release of Prime95 stresses all 4 cores.

Like everyone else said, use Prime95.
