    Burn-in tests: Do you guys still run them, and which one?

    So I just bought and built:

    1. Intel HD55 board
    2. Intel Core i3 3.33Ghz proc
    3. 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3 Crucial RAM
    4. Lite-On LiteScribe DVD-R
    5. Antec Sonata IV w/ 620w PS

    and I'm using an 80GB and 500GB from the current DVR/HDTV computer. The last few computers I've built (and it's been awhile) I've not bothered with burn-in tests, because they were all Linux boxes anyway. Since this is going to be Windows 7 Home Premium, I figured I could run one to test it and burn the proc in.

    Do you guys still use 'em? If so, which one?

    I think most ocers burn in their thermal paste but usually that's it, they just run it through cycles of full load, power off for a while, full load, power off...etc.

    haven't done that in years.

    Don't worry about people talking behind your back, it just means you're one step ahead and they're in perfect position to kiss your ass!

    I always do for at least a few hours but I also Always OC out of the box and want to test stability.

    Linx, Prime, and Orthos all work well.

    I currently have my 875K (Stock 2.8Ghz) running cool and stable @ 4.2Ghz
