Prime95 settings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys

what settings should i use to get a 100% (or close to) load on my cpu for prime95

the default settings don't seem to hold above 70% but seem to hover around
40 -70 at most.

any suggestions?

or should i use another program

I noticed you have a q6600, sounds almost as if you're using the dual core version of prime95. I believe there's a special quad threaded version, as well as (what i trust more) modifying your shortcuts to open 4 instances of prime, with affinity preset to each core, let me find a link...

Here it is: http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/65100/

Try that

Hm, what version of Prime95 do you have? I haven't run into any problems like that, it automatically creates the seperate threads and it runs at 100% load on all cores (checked with Core Temp) for me.
