    Prime doesnt complete, it just keeps running, some people say that when it goes past 8hrs the rig is stable and some say 24hours.

    hung normally means when you are loading windows on a overclocked system and you get to the windows XP sign and it just stops and doesnt load any further (it hangs) can relate to any software really by meaning it crashes.
