ok so it's come down to the problematic memory controller on winchesters...

so... stresscpu and memtest is the best combination to test my cpu and ram?

how long should i leave stresscpu for? it's almost up to 300,000, probably been runing for 15-25 minutes i'm guessing? leave it for another half an hour u think?

Generally an hour is good Stresscpu really heats up your cpui, moreso than P95 so I would take it not exitinmg or the system rebooting as a good sign the system is stable

What I do is run stresscpu in conjunction with a Superpi 32M test That way you are testing both subsystems just like P95 does

yeah 4-8hrs of stresscpu should be sufficient to be 95% stable

I can atest to the fact that I have a system perfectly stable (games, F@H, 24/7 uptime, etc) using stresscpu as my reference, however if I had relied on P95, I would have thought it wasn't and have been replacing components left right and centre. P95 is not the be-all-and-end-all of system reliability

The sooner people let go of the falacy that Prime95 is the only way to determine system stability the better

Thought you had sold that CPU recently? Or didn't it make reserve/instant?

I have no huge dislike with P95, just that it CAN more often than not be a PITA, therefore I have moved away from it as my definitive test suite

Ahh, so that is where I saw the eva 3700+ mentioned...

Swap my FX53 for your 3.2EE (mine performs so much better in benchies anyway, give you an extra 300 points in 3D01 at least)

DISCLAIMER: I have no need for a 3.2EE ATM, so I hope you dont take post seriously, as it contains far too much tounge in cheek
