Maybe I missed it?
From the OP:
1) Run Prime95 for 12 hours on Blend (Sandy Stable) OR Run Prime95 for 12 hours on Custom Blend using up to 80 or 90% of available RAM used. (Sandy Super Stable)
2) Include screen-shot while system is under load that shows your OCN name, 3 isntances of CPU-Z v 1.57.1 or higher. (1 for voltage, 1 for RAM, 1 for motherboard information), 1 instance of Realtemp 3.67 or higher which must show the duration of how long it has been running and the single instance of Prime95 (running all workers) must also be visible to show how long the workers (one per core) have been running. Note that you don't have to enable Hyper Threading if you don't want to. If you have an i7 and want to leave HT enabled, then you should have 2 Prime95 workers per core, instead of 1 per core. The time that Prime95 has been running should match the time shown for how long RealTemp has been running. Z68 Gigabyte motherboard users must show easytune6 hwmonitor tab and evga motherboard users must use the evga e-leet utility for core voltage reading.
3) Show your type of cooling in notepad. Include a CPU-Z of your RAM, Core Voltage, Motherboard Information. If running Super Stable on a Custom Blend, show Task Manager displaying performance tab.
4) Have a Sandy Bridge overclocked to at least 4.0 GHz.
The 18 hour thing to test every FFT is simply my recommendation for your own peace of mind of having tested every single FFT length as opposed to 2/3 of them.
Unless munaim1 says otherwise, changing the FFT times to 10 minutes to test every FFT in 12 hours would invalidate your Stable / Super Stable Club results, because the only "custom" option allowed by the rules is to increase RAM use.
The only reason I brought up the 10 minute interval is if you wanted to test FFT lengths on your own and couldn't dedicate 18 hours to test; it was an example, and has nothing to do with the Stable or Super Stable Club memberships. I am sorry if that confused anyone. (I also mentioned that you could test each FFT length for 1 minute and run a 70 minute long test to hit every FFT length.)
