In your case, your system was Prime95 stable for up to 12 hours. I'm confident that if you would have let the program run longer, you would have uncovered the instability. Remember that stability is all relative. When you say you've achieved full stability, it's to a given standard, such as 12 hours Prime95 or 50 passes of LinX. If you let it keep running, eventually it will fail on either test; it's just a matter of how stable it is, not that it is or isn't.

Again, one of the benefits of Prime95 is that if you know what the different errors mean, the program will tell you where your problem is. It's just unfair of you to say that the program is a 'fail' when really it seems like you just have a personal preference for another stress testing program. It's fine that you prefer one over the other, but that doesn't make the other less useful of a tool.

Reason. Purpose. Self Esteem.

I just want to ask, what does it mean if while running prime your computer suddenly reboots? I've never had a BSOD while running prime for stability testing.. only restarts!!! what could this mean? Btw, error checking is enabled. My suspect is my stupid iCute 550W psu. hehe!

It probably means that you need more core voltage. If you aren't getting a stop error and BSOD, then you simply need more voltage to that processor.
