Trolling much?! Wearing out capacitors!?! What bush did you come from all of a sudden?I wouldn't recommend, using any burn-in test... Unless, you want to wear out the capacitors on your motherboard & increase the amperage, that the entire system uses...
The CPU, GC & MB, will use more Wattage etc.. Unreversible & Shortens the life, of all your components...
Capacitor wear... well.. you can start talking about that in about 10 years time, considering pretty much all halfway decent boards use solid polymer capacitors in the CPU VRM (and elsewhere).
And "more wattage".. come on.. as long as you don't go berserk with the VCore, that ain't gonna hurt anything, unless it's a cheapo board like Asrock or ECS, in which case you'd deserve it frying the VRM on you. Any decent board will have a well overspec'd VRM area.
portable programs cluttering your registry?It Clutters your registry too.. Try & clean that up.. I Bet You'll Say; "I'll Use A RegClean" LOL..
The BIOS Chip isn't being written to (ever) unless you flash the BIOS. All settings are stored in CMOS memory, which is volatile anyways (hence the need for a battery and 5VSB)The BIOS Chip, Also Gets A Beating Too within 30 seconds.. Using SpeedStep etc..
That doesn't even make sense. He suggested using prime95 to load up the CPU to see if the multiplier in CPU-Z is changing, nothing else.The minimum Burn-In test, normally is for 15mins-3hours etc..
30 Seconds Tests Nothing Of The CPU & Is Actually bad for It.. If The Instruction Sets, Aren't Finished Processing & You Quit Program & Full Load etc..
