I noticed it's not mentioned in undoc.txt anymore. I'm guessing it's been completely removed from Prime95?

Did your computer crash for any reason?

In my experience, this can cause Prime95 to lose settings in rare cases.

Prime95 startup delay

Prime95 always waits a short time before doing work when the computer starts up. I've noticed that the number of seconds is not the same every time. So I'm a little curious:

I forgot to mention that both CPUs have the same 3.5 GHz base clock speed. However, the new series does have eight (up from six) memory channels. Would this have a significant effect on power usage?
