I was testing what the highest stable base clock I could get was and I was using IntelBurnTest to check for stability, but each run was taking over 1000 seconds. I would be using prime, but when I was reading around, for short tests IntelBurnTest apparently would do. I'm running at very low multipliers for both memory and CPU adding up to 2.4GHz on the core and 960MHz on the memory. Is this why IntelBurnTest is taking so long to do one run, or am I missing something? Btw, I'm using a i7 950 and IntelBurnTest is set to maximum, on 8 threads. Any ideas?

Uninstall and install again

It happened to me when I installed an SSD but that worked for me

Thanks, seems to have toned the times down by half Apparently it's supposed to take this long when you run it with 12gb of ram.
