Alright, altely I been hearing alot about burning in your parts. I've been told to wait a week or so until you start to OC for your parts to nicely burn in. Sure, ok, I'll do that. But why? What is the purpose of it? Also, if I am to do the best burn in I possibly can, what should I do? Should I run Prime95 nonstop for an extremely long period? Should I run memtest86 for a week?

What does burning in do, and why is it needed? And what is the best, even overkill, way to burn in my parts?
