Thats not true with the latest version of P95 as it stresses both cores without having to set the affinity. I use for my quad core and it automatically loads all 4 cores.

The reason his CPU is only showing 80% load is probably because he still isnt running the SMALL FFT's test like I have mentioned about 3-4 times now. lol. Or he is running an older version of P95.

You have to run small fft's Redeemed in order for both cores to hit 100% load.

Uninstall Prime 95 and then download from that Link I provided for you.
