    Check google for maximum temperatures for each:
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6300HQ CPU
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
    ...so i should just stare at HWMonitor for 180min while Prime95 runs? Is that what people typically do when they run a test like this?

    There are some people that have let Prime95 run overnight.
    The amount of monitoring is up to the test user.
    It is important to monitor the computer to be able to abort testing if there are any problems with temperatures.

    There are no mini dump files in the zip.
    On an earlier date you had created a test dump using Whocrashed.
    Using file explorer please find the memory dump file and post it into the thread using a one drive or drop box share link:
    memory dump file: %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP or C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP

    For Prime95 there should be a choice: Just Stress Testing or automatic method.
    See section: use for stress testing: Prime95 - Wikipedia

    When I launch Prime95 it asks me which "torture test" to run: "small FFTs", "in-place large FFTs", "blend" or "Custom". Which is the one I should run?

    dump file created today:

    Please run the blend.
    The link that was posted earlier had information about test duration.
    The longer the test duration the better the testing as there is more opportunity to find problems over time.
    In general we use 3 hours or more as sufficient time. If you want to run the testing longer you can and again it requires the end user to monitor the computer.


    In the left lower corner search type: clean > open disk cleanup > click ok > for the files to delete section use the scroll bar and post images into the thread.

    Please post an updated DM log collector:

    In order to perform stress testing you must monitor: temperature, display artifacts, freezing, etc.

    1) For all tests please record maximum temperatures and test duration.

    2) And for all test please post images of the test results into the thread.
    I ran Prime95 for 4 hours. During that time the computer did not malfunction or freeze.
