Here's the link to the latest version of LinX (this page always has the latest version):

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=201670

As for the settings: read the Read Me file that it comes with, and then you'll be all set. It does a much better job at explaining what I want to explain.

However, there's one thing I want to mention: always, always, always, reboot right before running LinX. In other words, only run LinX when you haven't done one single other thing with your computer after booting up. It should be like this:
  1. Reboot (or simply "Boot up")
  2. Open LinX.
  3. Open temperature monitoring program (like Real Temp or Core Temp).
  4. Maybe even open CPU-Z.
  5. Start the LinX test
But again, be sure to read the Read Me file that it comes with.

Edit: 3dfxvoodoo, take a look at which forum this is posted in. If he meant Linux, then this wouldn't be in the Intel CPUs forum; it would be in the Operating Systems forum, or some other forum like that. Plus, look at his OP: he's talking about stress testing.

lol I know. I only knew he meant "LinX" because of the context clues.

Anyway, the Read Me file that comes with LinX says that 50-100 runs using the largest problem size possible is recommended. Anything else is just a quick check.

I guess his name being 3dfxVoodoo had nothing to do with it. xD

I did mine with 20 passes, using Windows Live Messenger, playing WinAmp, and uTorrent running in the background.

I'm pretty sure it's stable. Now, to update my BIOS so I can get my RAM to boot @ 1000Mhz and higher.

only reason why i did 20 is because i did 12 hours prime 20 runs linx 20 runs intel burn test while watching a movie through all of them. plus im only at 1.25 volts so.

But LinX and IBT use the exact same linpack test.

Be sure to get the most out of Linpack by manually setting LinX to the largest problem size that it will allow you to. You can go even higher when you run LinX first thing immediately after booting up. But the more things you do with the computer prior to running linpack, the smaller the maximum problem size will be.
