Make sure you are running prime95 on both cores. There are other posts that tell you how to do this. Many diff ways to do it.

I can OC to the moon and back just launching once instance of Prime95, but that is because It's always only using 50% of my CPU (50% of each core or 100% of one Core = 50% of total PC processing.) The computer never breaks a sweat if you don't launch 2 Prime95's set to diff cores.

Set the affinity to Core 0, open a second instance of Prime95 and set affinity to Core 1.

Then do ctrl/alt/del to bring up task manager, find both prime95's in process list and right click the process to set affinity there as well.

That way you have one instance of Prime95 running on each core.

I say let prime go for more than 4 hours. At least 8, preferably 12.
