Default How can Orthos run for an hour if Prim95 fails after a minute?

I picked up a Q6600 G0 yesterday and the thing sucks. I couldn't even get it stable at 2.8Ghz before adding the bios update, and even with that the thing is not stable.

Running at 3GHz I can run Orthos for over an hour, small FFTs on all four cores, but if I fire up Prime95 it errors out within a minute. How that be?

Wish my chip wasn't a piece of ****. I was running at 3.5Ghz with my dual.
