Default Use as hardware reliability test

There's a pretty good video on this at
There are what occur to me as some inaccuracies in that youtube video.

Hyperthreading should not usually be used in primality testing; performance is usually better without employing the additional threads in prime95 / mprime.

Prime95 includes disclosure of cpu type, number of cores, whether hyperthreading is available, instructions supported, cache sizes etc. Options, CPU...

It will not test the reliability of your GPU, IGP, PCIe slots, etc. Consider Gpuowl, mfakto or mfaktc selftest, or other GPU GIMPS applications for that.
