usually a 4 hour test is good enough (it will technically run as long as you let it)....so far is that the only error you've gotten?

I'll put anything I see here. I may end the test early as I need to go home and don't really want to leave it running all night.

Just wondering if a 3.3 hour test will suffice. No error messages on this stick at all. If it is then I'll change the stick and start on the last one

that should be good
usually the important errors (at least in my experience) will come out in the first couple of tests..

ok I'm about 30% done with the surface scan.. I'm guessing that if nothing turns up I should just take that one stick that had an error out and that may solve the problem????

no problems on the surface test. So I guess I'll shutdown, put the appropriate sticks in and see what happens. Do I need to do anything else first??
