PC Testing Apps?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I will be building my first computer over this next week and would like to know a list of hardware testing software (ram, hdd, etc?) that will make sure all my components are performing as they should.

I would also like to find out some of the common benchmarking tests that I should run to test out the parts individually and the system as a whole.

Thank you in advanced! This community has been very helpful!

OCCT and Orthos and prime 95 will test the ram and cpu dependent on test used. Downloading the memtest .iso is great for testing the ram. Western digital diagnostics or seatools are great for testing the hdd.

Since you have a quad core processor i would like to redirect you to my project DoubleMark, unlike most stressers is has support for every CPU and every CPU entering the market for years to come. Almost all only have support for dual cores, to stress all of your cores using these stressers you would have to run 2 instances (or more) of the application at once and set affinity for each. DoubleMark, however, stresses all cores on the machine adaptively without any hassle from you. Its a one button press system. Then press it again to stop it.

TestMem's S&M 1.9.1+, best memory stress test I've ever used, and I have used a lot of them in the last 12 years.
