One of S-Ms news articles is a CPU paste review. Im the review they used FAH for a week to test the pastes. Not too many times have I seen that. Toms uses Seti but not FAH.

    Actually, they used F@H for the burn-in week, not for the torture test. But that's actually better, since they ran each paste for a week in folding!

    I use F@H at work on new systems to test the cpu, and if it happens to turn in a few WU's with my name on them, then that's alright.
    It doesn't do much for memory or hdd testing, but it will tell you how the system reacts under 100% load on both the cpu and on how the heat generated will affect the system.
    And yes, I do uninstall it before it goes to the customer.
