Yes. Run prime95.exe. It should prompt you for the type of test you want to run and how many threads you want to run the test on. Then it just starts and runs until you stop it.

Any time I've ever run it, it runs until you stop it. Where are you downloading it from?

Get it from here if you haven't already:

hmm i think im doing it wrong.. should i just start prime95.exe and let it run?
i'm running it from "real temp 3.70" and it automatically stops it after cool down.

You don't really need to run it anything like 24 thou to stress test your system 4 hours is poor then enough then just use your computer for a few week odd are if its unstable it will bsod by 4h

True.

Based on my experience, within 30-60 minutes the CPU is as hot as it will get for any duration following.
