How many hours if Prime do I really need?

post #1 of 126
Thread Starter 
Seriously, I was running Prime95 for 13 hours, then I got an error, what's up with that? Seriously, how long do I need to run it for?

I ran blend test for 13 hours..

Really depends what you do with your computer. I think if you never run for more than 12hrs on a load then you should be fine. if you fold 24/7 you may want to do a full 24hr test.

I'd say 90% of errors occur within the first hour. Your system is pretty stable.

depends on how high your cpu is overclocked if its at about 3.7-4.0 then a few hours of prime should be fine but an overclock that low should only need 1.3vcore 1.3vtt.
any higher and i would not ever run prime or burn test, thats a good way to kill some stuff.

I prefer at least 12h of each test in Prime95 error free to consider my OC "stable"

But no OC is 100% stable that`s for sure..

I`d say you`re OK..

CHEERS..

These are my settings, i've raised them a bit here when I had the error after 13 hours i had 0.010v less vcore and one step higher uncore.

So you guys mean that no setup runs for 100 hours without a rounding error?

It's all personal preference, really. To me, 13-16 hours of P95 Blend is 24/7 stable.. For some people, it'll be more or less.

5 mins prime95 stable FTW

I also agree with "the higher the overclock, the longer needed" school of thought. I never really overclock above 4GHZ and many times I leave it around 3.8 so I only run prime for a few hours along with memtest for a few hours.

why do you run 13 hours

just run 20 minutes

if it is ok then start using it

if no error that means it is stable for you
