    Hi!

    I'm getting my E6850 today and some people write that you should run two different instances of Orthos to stress both cores.

    But when I look at screenshots in various overclocking threads it seems that Orthos can stress both cores with only one instance running. Which is correct?

    Thanks!

    Orthos will run just fine on a dual-core.

    It's quad core that won't work. :)

    Ditto. Orthos is already dual core, just run it :cool:.

    to verify its running on both cores just CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to performance see if it's pegged out on both cores.
