Really? I have had it happen to me on several occasions.

What were you using Small, Large, or mixed FFTs?

Maybe there is one other factor we aren't looking at: Patience. I don't think I have ever let prime go 6hrs unless I passed out or something... LOL

Usually a couple three is max for me.

Corrupt files FTL!

Well when you have primed for a while then you play a game and it keeps crashing you sorta loose the desire to waste time with prime (unless you set it while you are away or something)

Nah. I use popular current gen games as my main testing methodology. Although I have dorked around with orthos.
