Stress testing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I earlier today had an incedent where my CPU overheated to 100c for about 10 mins due to my cpu cooler coming off. Im using prime 95 to test it at stock to see if there is any damage, Im wondering how i can tell if theres somthing wrong I have never used Prime 95 before. I have noticed that while i have been testing a few windows background tasks have stopped responding is this normal

Thanks

if they tatally stop responding, that is not ok, but some slowing is ok. have you tried OCCT ? that stresses your cpu, and says if it is unstable, it gives a warning

err how did your cpu cooler fall off?


And no if it's running now it's fine.

CPU's are either all or nothing.

Ok so if its running now then it should be ok. I was told that my cpu could be damaged and just not run properly but not be fully dead.
