I've been running it for 3 hours with no errors at all. And temps have been around 56-60. Is it safe to say that my system is stable? 8+ hours seems like overkill to me. And even if it did crash after 8 or so, doesn't that not reflect real world useage?

Is it Prime95 blend?
If so, I think you should at least wait for 6h to be completed.

I have seen that even errors that are detected after 5h+ do mess with the operating system (services not starting correctly, etc.)

If you are running Prime95 small FFT, then I agree that it is ok for cpu testing only. Next step woud be to test 6h Prime95 blend

Going by post times your only at 5 hours. To make sure you wont crash on anything you do, 24 hours is needed as a re assurance. My oc is 28 hours stable, I like to make sure, but to each there own.

Well i a 15min Prime95 stable 4.0Ghz gave me about 25mins before BSOD in games. I would say 2 hour small and 12 hour blend. The more problem you get the more you try to fix them in the future so just make it 100% now so u dont get in problems latter.

The program itself said 5 hours and 50 minutes but thats close enough to 6 hours for me. And running a pc at full load for 24 hours, isn't that a non realistic test? And isnt it dangerous to run it overnight?

Why on earth would that be true?

Personally I use about 6hrs p95, 50 runs of IBT, and a few hours of OCCT.

I run prime blend for 1 hour with unreal tournament running in background.
Then run super pi 32m a few rounds.
3D Mark Vantage high. , with max aa
