Interesting, I'll try your suggestions.

Yes, exactly.
I also set the -p (pattern) setting to hex 'aa' because in binary it's
10101010 and supposedly this type of pattern stresses components more.
Although the -p setting states that you can add 16 of these pad bytes
so maybe it will accept 14 more hex numbers.
