Great scores, nice system, can we see the rest of the specs?
I was thinking that too but thought it was too cheeky. Nicley phrased though, perhaps it wouldn't have been too big a request. Always interested to see the components that earned the scores. Nice build this 1.

I tried that prime 95 program, I ran the test for about 11 and a bit hours (Stopped it in the end) with only a small increase in both CPU and GPU temps. I even tried playing a few full settings games (Sega Rally, Crysis 2, Starcraft 2, Street Fighter 4-this with the benchmark as well still got an A) these raised the GPU temps (Around 62c) but once I exited the games the temps came back down to normal. Will try the torture test tomorrow, that tests a bit of everything so it says. Perhaps that will give better results.

So if it didn't break, even though I didn't finish the test then that's still a good result? I got confused when reading threads about how long to run for most said it needed more than an hour, but beyond that nothing is certain....I really just quit because there was little change in my monitors.
Thanks again for the advice.

The Prime95 test has to be stopped, or it will just keep running, unless there is an error.

There is some controversy on the length of test to run, the old school say 12-24 hrs, seeing a lot of new recommendations of 1-2 hrs is enough.
Also depends on what you do with your system.
I would say yours is just fine.

I agree with Dave. I think the 24-48 hours is mostly for severe overclocks where it may run fine for hours and hours, and then error. But unless you are using your PC in such a way that it is stressed that hard constantly, then 8 hours max should suffice to show that the cooling and system are ok. Run OCCT for a few hours using the various tests, run Memtest, and you can assume you are good to go for years and years

Not the best, but hey, I can play my Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and DNF. :P

Plus, multi-tasking works like a charm, no sluggish-ness -- surprisingly.

If it suits your needs, WEI scores be damned

I wish I could get the latest drivers.. Sony NAZI-rigged my GPU with some mayhem... I can install the newest AMD VISION/CCC and it can control my GPU, but the DRIVER itself can't be updated. The Catalyst Software Suite says it can't find any supported hardware, then insists that I contact Sony about updates. :P

FAIL.
