I also tried running 50 mulitiple instances (in total) of a mix of burnK7, burnMMX, burnBX, burnP6 and burnK6 in linux (with different memory settings for burnBX and burnMMX), while accessing floppy, CD-ROM, 2xHDDs, my SBLive card and my Geforce 2 to try and load my voltages... but again completely stable, if a bit... well very... jerky!.

burnK7 doesnt test enough ram to expose the problem. burnK7 stays entirely
inside cache and doesnt touch main memory, which is where the problem
