I've read so many biased reviews on Prime95, I don't know if it is legit anymore. Many people say even their stock systems with no incompatibility issues and proper hardware all around don't pass Prime95 torture testing. I used to use it on my old 32-bit system, but now I'm not so sure. When I overclock a system, I use Prime95 as my threshold. Once the computer fails and I cross that threshold, I don't overclock anymore. What about the guy with the stock system failing the torture testing? Something's wrong here...
What is an alternative to Prime95 that I can use to measure computer overclocking ability? With Prime95 not 100% reliable, I'd like another program to test computers with...

Do you use the burn-in test with Sandra? I've used it for checking systems concerning FPU and memory bandwidth, things of that sort. Never really used it for checking system stability though..
