Allocating Linx/IBT more RAM than available

In LinX I always set memory to "All". I start the test and continue to do what I was doing ( checking e-mail, watching youtube videos, listening to music ). It does seem sluggish sometimes. One day I would pass 20 runs in LinX with no errors. Next morning I wake up and do IBT again to double check with same settings and I get an error. Could it be that I'm interfering with the stress test? I always thought that the more stress the better ( LOL ) so I thought me using the computer while it's checking for stability is fine, but now I am a bit skeptical.

I downloaded IBT and set Stress Level to "Maximum" and it told me I cannot use more memory than I have available..so I guess it's bad for me to be on the computer while stress testing.

What do you say?

Don't do other stuff with you're testing with Linx. It apparently does interfere (other applications are stealing CPU cycles) and cause irregular results.
