Having run the CPU test for two hours, it showed no errors.

If you mean Prime95, it take 30 minutes to stabilize and an 8 hour run to properly check. If you get a "Worker has stopped" message, that's an error.

What were your temps?

Max temp was 70 degrees C. And it didn't give me any errors.

Right, but EXACTLY as the tuts suggest, for example Prime need to run at least 8 hours, you did two. It get a bit more stressful as it goes on.
