IBT and Furmark (at the same time) should load up the PSU pretty good.

prime 95 only stresses the cpu / ram

furmark stresses the gpu but i do not recommend running it for an extensive period unless you trust the cooling on your video card, it puts unnecessary stress on it

You'd have to run Unigine Valley and Prime 95 at the same time.

Don't use heat viruses pretty much ever (furmark) They can break gpus.

If you can't run Furmark, your cooling is inadequate or your card was on it's way out anyways.

Furmark is notorious for causing electrical damage, busting capacitors and the like, and on otherwise fine cards...Furmark is extremely intensive - more intensive than anything you'd ever normally do on a GPU...a GPU may be perfectly up to spec for normal use, and even overclocked use, but not every card out of the shop can take being put through hell and high-water. It's not worth the chance. There are other, better programs.

Furmark is like the IBT of stress testing / benching. It's going to push your hardware to the very limit. If Valley (for example) gets your GPU to 70c, while Furmark gets it to 90c, that would mean Furmark is stressing the card harder than Valley. If your using either as a stability test, you'll want to use the most stressful. It's pointless to stress test a component and use a program that's not going to push it to the max.

To each his own tho. I've personally never blown a GPU using Furmark, at stock or overclocked.
