I believe the general consensus is 5 to 7 passes for a decent result, though generally in my own experience just a couple is enough it will usually start spamming errors rather quickly if there is a notable problem... but not always.
It also helps if you start right after you've been using the computer so the components are already 'warmed up'.

I've been running it for 4.5 hours now...it's at 3 passes and no errors.

Thanks for the tip.
