Best program for testing OC stability?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm just wondering what program I should use to test how stable an overclock is. I've heard komouster and furmark were bad, but those are the ones I see people using the most. So any sugesstions?

cpu/ram oc or gpu? Prime 95 for reliable stability for cpu and personally gaming a variety for both gpu/cpu.

Gpu i personally stay away from the likes of kombuster/furmark. I run benches gpu dependent to see if initially stable then hit the games like bf3. I have passed several benches and kombuster/furmark for long lengths of time and crashed in five minutes of bf3.

Heaven benchmark indicates imminent unstabilities fairly quickly and looping it is a good way of testing stability, but you should also play different games as you would, and look for artifacts. GPU burn programs like Kombustor and Afterburner are definitely NOT for stability testing as they create excessive load that is beyond anything you will ever experience in a normal gaming environment.

I'll have to give heaven a download then. I don't have many games that really stress the gpu, besides Crysis 3(and maybe Planetside 2 which I haven't really played because my current computer can't run it) .

I agree heaven on loop is a decent check before gaming. More realistic load than a so called gpu burn software

I run Valley and Heaven and if they past just give it some really gaming testing, which I did with Crysis 3
