    For a desktop user... Pointless..... For me real world mission critcal systems... Super important. we burn all of our nodes, heads, deve, and storage boxes for 48 hours at 100% across all CPU's then ship them to the buyer.

    The only thing that needs to burn in is TIM ... everything else is stability testing.
