Have My PC overclocked to 2.6 now (237 x 11 @ 1.47v) and ran Prime95 last night for about 9 hours and everything passed. Ran memtest along side it for the first 2 hours. Zero Errors. Was very happy with the results and decided to run adware, spyware, and antivirus. ran adware and locked up half way through. now everytime I reboot and when windows loads it locks up right after trying to open up a program or more or less anything. Wanted to know if maybe one of my HDD are going bad. Or is there any effect of Prime95 running on dual core CPU cause I notice when its running its splitting the load over the two cores. Should I be running two copies of Prime95 to fully test the system?

Yep, exactly. You need to run 2 instances of prime95 when testing your CPU or it's only running at 50%.

So what should I do? Open it once and set the CPU set up to run zero. Then
open it up again and set it to one. I can do that?

Download that Sp2004 program by Johny Lee. Its like prime95 but supposedly better because of some fixes in it..

I dont have a link but google it and you should be able to find it.

When you run it, it has that option for cpu 1 and cpu 0 and obvously allows for 2 to be running at teh same time..
