    Ya, but in the end, after many hours of sessions you spend making it stable for xx FFT, then you have spent many hours on it anyway. Plus that last final run you think will be stable, you know you'll want to let it run for 8+ hours to be sure you are still passing the xx FFT trouble size.

    So it seems like a huge hassle still. I run 6-8 instances (Depending on core count) of HCI memtest using all ram split between then, and that will easily crash out settings that pass LinX, so I bet once you get HCI stable you're probably Prime95 stable as well.

    Prime95 run may instances automatically and also et you choose number of threads manually if you with so I doubt it would be more hassle than HCI memset.
    When you run known failing FFTs sizes they useually fail after a minute or two.
    You may as well pass HCI memtest and fail some Prime95 FFT so there's no realy way to tell.

    The more the merrier, and still after all the testing you cannot be sure it's 100% stable, but it does not really matter, as long as you are happy with it and don't get BSODs too often

    Ya, I know what you mean about Prime95 settings. But I didn't know when you find the failing FFT size, then it will always fail in a minute or two, so I guess knowing that then testing new settings against that FFT size might not take as long as I thought.

    But still, in the end, once you have everything where you think it's stable, don't you still have to test for 8+ hours? I can do that, and used to do it that way too, just seems like such a long time now after using other shorter testing methods.

    I agree about passing HCI and failing prime, same would be true about passing prime and failing HCI too So, ya, I guess we all have our own methods and they work for us.

    You're right, stable is when you don't have BSOD's doing whatever you do with your computer, as long as you pass whatever method you like and don't get BSOD's often you're good to go
