Quick question about stretching my PC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an AMD Athlon 64 3200+
2000Mhz currently at 2200Mhz

and want to push it to find out the temperature under load at the moment my idle temp is 30 and after about 40 mins of CSS this went up to 34 but want to see what happens when it is stretched further.

how can i do this? i seem to remember using some program which works out pi as accurately as possible but after googling it don't know which one to use any help ??

Tuna, Orthos would be the best solution. It'll run until you stop it. If ran with the Blend test, this application will stress both your processor and memory. During this time you'll get to see the real temperatures that are produced

Hope this helps
