Default What\'s a Good Burn-In for a newly built system???

I just finished getting my new computer going (again...). This is my third motherboard for this computer; the first two were bad (according to ASUS). The last one worked for a week and then died, so of course I fell like I'm walking on eggshells here.

So now I have a question. It seems like it's running good so far, but what is a good test to see if it's going to last? Is there a typical regime that should be done with a fresh build? I haven't installed PT or any audio software yet, as I want to make sure it's a solid computer first.

Thanks for any suggestions.

run "Prime95" for 8 hours or so, be sure to watch your CPU temperatures for the first 30 minutes. This will run your CPU at 100% and max out your temperatures. A lot of people like to run it for days and days, for me 8 hours at 100% CPU usage is proof enough of stability.

any errors can mean instability
OR
in some few cases some machines just don't like prime95, but are totally stable otherwise.
