    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

    I second that. The hottest my CPU EVER gets is from running Prime95. It is also a very good test of memory and seems to find instabilities better than any other program.

    Thumbs up

    For cpu burn in and or chipset/memory burn the best I have found is cpuburn. Try a search in yahoo or altavista.
    Seti brings my temp on my p3 to 48-49C with cpuburn and in particular burnp6 (which is one of the burn tests in cpuburn) it brings the temp up to 62C. Try it I went through a few burn in progies until i found cpuburn.
