Does the amount of time Prime 95 blend test runs reflect stability? Such as if it fails after 5 mins your computer is more stable than when it failed at 1 min?

Primed for 4 hrs = reasonably stable

Primed for 8 hrs = everyday-use stable

Primed for 12+hrs = 24/7 stable

blend or torture, either one.

Blend covers all the bases...torture is well...torture.

Blend is under the torture test. Also is it ok to run things like msn and aim or should I close everything when running prime95?

you can run anything you want while priming. its best to keep use to a minimum though while priming, you want the crash (if any) to be hardware related, and not software related.
