whats the best way to test ur whole system for flaws

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
hello out of old exp i know now that testing the new parts when u get them is a smart thing to do
( i found out the hard way : Non overclockable gpu and the shop cba to rma it because i used it for 6 months)

im looking for some ways to totaly stress test all my computer parts

(motherbord/cpu/ram/ are new

preff to do something short(1hour) and not 24hour run of prime

i already got my ram working on the timings/speed (XMP)
my Cpu is still stock


Also :


building the computer took longer then expected because i whasnt able to get the H100I into my case without removing loads of plastic stuff from the top to get to the screw's of the h100I

and because my psu doesnt have a 8 pin conecter but 2x 4 pin on one cable ( this motheboard has 2 ways to supply power to cpu ) so i had to use the 2x 4pin and because the 2 slots are 3cm apart one of my cables is getting in the way of my h100i cooler

this results on pressure on the 4 pin conecter from the h100I + not being able to screw the h100i fully in (i got 5/8 screws in ) woulth it mater?
(it looks to stay in place)

also because some other mistake i ruined my cooling paste i think i placed the cpu block on the cpu but it dint fit and whasnt able to screw it in
so i had to take it off and redo the bracket and fitted after

temps seems fine for stock but not sure if i can test overclocking with this paste

26C idle 60C highest setting on intel burn for 10 rounds ( 3 cores are 58-60 one is 53)


i gues a new case/powersuply + new cooling paste will fix this but till the time i buy that im i fine? + can i want to stress test the system to avoid losing rma

3dmark11 is a good test. It tests the gpu and cpu. Memtest is a good test for the memory. as ssd or crystal disk mark are good tests for the ssd. I'm not sure of a test that does them all at once.

you can look up what the average scores are for your hardware for those tests and that can give you an indication if things aren't working properly.

I know nobody pays attention to the windows test but if the scores are really low that could point to a problem also.

3dmark11 is a benchmark ^^
more looking for a stress tests

gues i can try memtest for the ram


btw only need to test the motherboard/cpu/ram/cooler

i get a errror doing the windows test pretty sure its software btw not the gpu (video playback )

You can't really test anything in an hour, if I only had an hour I'd do either LinX (IntelBurnTest) for the CPU or fold CPU+GPU for the whole system.

Exactly what I was thinking of putting thumb.gif

If pushed for time, consider running multiple small memtest's as well as Intel Burn Test at the same time.

But folding on the CPU+Gpu is a sure test for everything at once.


The reason we are suggesting the GPU stress is becoz information is sent across the MB to the GPU.

well memtest is ok, not always acurate in errors tho but good enough.
IBT is stressing but runs hotter than P95 so good for finding max temps
you could do a short 1-2hr run with P95.
always good to test drives if they are new such as with HDtune.

also benching software are good for stress testing as well, noty only benchmarking.

What are your ambient temps? If your CPU is at stock settings (assuming your motherboard didn't give you way more voltage than you actually needed like mine did), I'd be a bit concerned at those temps. My load temps were lower when I had my 965BE @ 4.0Ghz and a high vCore with a CM 212+ (no brag intended, just raising concern). If it's not at stock (like the original post said) then I wouldn't worry depending on how high of an OC. If it is stock I'd suggest re-applying TIM and re-seating the cooler. Keeping inside of the case clutter free and good airflow will help as well.
