ikjadoon: It's all good.

The reason Intel and AMD doesn't release those kinds of stress-testers is because there's no point. They are so over-the-top, that in absolutely no possible situation could you ever achieve the same. IntelBurnTest and anything else that uses Linpack is pretty much the same. I've never seen any real process burn up the CPU so bad, so in a way, it's probably overkill. But, if it deems the CPU unstable, I still consider it unstable. I like to reside in the fact of knowing that even when pushed to the brink, my CPU won't fail.

Unregistered: Thanks for the info! I never heard of that before, but I just downloaded it and plan to test later.

I know what you mean. And,if it passes that, it is 110% stable so you can usually rule it out when you have an issue.
