The purpose of the IntelĀ® Processor Diagnostic Tool (http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19182&keyword=Intel+Processor+Diagnostic+Tool&lang=eng) is to verify the functionality of an IntelĀ® microprocessor. The diagnostic checks for brand identification, verifies the processor operating frequency, tests specific processor features and performs a stress test on the processor.

The diagnostic can be configured to execute in one of two modes, presence test mode or verification mode. Additionally, it can be configured to enable (run) or disable (skip) individual default configurations are used for this mode of operation.

Nothing better than a big red 'FAIL'!

Did you follow their advice and shutdown your PC? (In case it catches on fire)

I'm pretty sure this tool has not been updated for SB CPUs...
And yes, I stopped the PC, not to follow their advice, but simply because it's a tesbed  ;D
