    is a 71 second prime time a good score, I know it is all reletive, but is there a reference?

    I have, see specks, a fx60 running a little over 3.0

    fyi.. loosines, a tiny bit, and adding some nifty heatsinks and a three 40mm fankit(corsair) I am able to get my Centon memory to run STABLE at 432! sweet(216 dual channel)
    Not bad for generic memory:toast:

    My 1M score is ~34.343s. 71 would seem a bit slow if you ran it at 1M.

    Are you talking about the test for benchmark?

    When you run prime you select the amount of digits first. Most people bench using 1m. Obviously, a higher value requires more time to compute.

    Edit: Forget the above. We're talking about superpi, you're asking about prime95, our fault. (I just followed :p) Not sure about prime actually, haven't run it in ages.

    Thanks I was TOTALLY confused, should I be using super PI?
    everything tested ok, then I ran a torture prime test and failed.. what is next? ioe is there any way to tell what failed
    Passed Sand M and memtest... temps are cool.
    should I increase poewer and retest? lower fsb? memory? other ?

    what are the advantages of super duper prime?

    If you fail prime it's most likely your memory or CPU. Lower the FSB until it passes.

    try raising your power first if you have a good mobo it should take the fsb but your cpu might not be able to hold the mhz at a low voltage.

    btw hows that fx treat you at gaming?
