Sure, let's also run abacus on it 😁
Use prime95 with small FFT preset.
How long should I run Prime 95 with small FFT preset? Been going almost an hour so far. Hottest core at 44c tops.
Well, it depends. There's a holy war going on interwebs right now on what to use, how to test, how long to test etc. I believe you should simply get your priorities straight. If you suspect your system is unstable you should run torture test the amount of time it would make your heart at peace. Some go for an hour. Others for 24. For some a weekend is not enough. There are also tests for different parts of system so it's probably a good idea to run them all to be sure. Yet in my experience a system unstable enough to not even let you finish your favorite retro game will show itself on a 24h Prime95 blend test, be it CPU, RAM or some other component.
Yet I don't think going to extremes is always the way. E.g. right now I'm rocking a 10900k build which could easily climb to 90c and more under AVX2 tests. That's the territory of whiny coolers and throttling. So by the idea of some I shall probably dial back thermal velocity aggressiveness and prevent my CPU from going over 5.3 GHZ in short burst because GOD FORBID I'll get into 30 min AVX2 scenario and burn my house down. Yeah, sure, no thanks. Sanity should be the principle.
