To be honest i cant remember where i got my version of Orthos from but i`ll check my book marks and wot not and get back to you.
It doesnt stress each core to 100% like Prime95, it stresses all the cores together at 100% and individual cores are stressed at 50%
Some questions to consider:
Is Prime 95 even relevant for stressing i7 ?
Will the most intensive CPU tasks ever replicate a situation where all 4 cores are blazing away at 400%?
When you think about it, thats what causes the errors, having 4 cores at 100% leaves no resources to call on whereas if you had 1 core at 100% it can call upon the cash and computing power of less busy cores so the 100% core would never encounter an error in the real world.
