i'll let it run overnight then. :) the e7200 is in my buds pc, i was going sell him my e8400 but his board is old and wouldn't run a 1333mhz chip, so the pc i got from you has my e8400 in it at 3.6 right now, going to try for 4.2 after i get a better hsf.

I find Linpack / Intel burn test more intensive on my CPU than [email protected], but nothing beats it for stability test on a GPU.

To the OP, I'd try more than one type of stability test, to verify all different features of the CPU. The components of the CPU undergo different levels of stress depending on which test you run. I've seen my computer survive OCCT overnight but fail after a couple hours of Prime and vice versa.
If you search around, you'll see a mix of stability test "regimes". For me, I do one of OCCT / Prime95 overnight, then 24/7 BOINC; although I'm undervolted ATM because there's no [email protected] contest / I'm not playing Supreme Commander.

Linkpack is a sketchy program.

Its been known to fail on stock clocks. :dots:

I don't trust it and never will. p95 for me.

it made it past 8 hours, it didn't show any errors in prime, but when i checked it this morning at 8am the clock said 4:03 and it was froze. so it just passed the 8h mark, going to try again with a little lower vcore.
