It's good when you are overclocking to see if it's stable.

Prime95 is a stress test to take your computer to the "limit".

Also a lot of people use it for benchmarking when overclocking too.

Prime95 and 3DMark are different. 3DMark is to benchmark your computer's performance, while Prime95 is to stress test you computer to it's limits.

ya like everyone else said it stress tests your computer so that u can make sure its stable after some overclocking, some people leave it running for 24 hours or something but i think 1 hour is fine to see that its stable

Prime95 is the best stability tester that I've ever used. And, Gaming Freak, one hour isn't really stable. If it is over around 3-4 hours it should be fine. I think I got about 5 hours out of mine.
