In some limited testing, it seems F@H SMP client makes an excellant overclocking tester.
SMP will not run properly even with the smallest problem after over clocking. I was ramping up the FSB on a Core 2 Duo, and as soon as I went too far, SMP started giving errors. The errors started even though the computer booted up just fine.

Interesting.

Yes, it is: It is extremely sensitive. More so, than anything else I've run accross. I use it as a burn in to detect any problems with new machines because of its sensitivity. It is really good at finding RAM issues that memtst86+ doesn't find. The big problem with it being used as a diagnostic is that it doesn't identify what the problem is: Merely that there is one.
