GPU stress test

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know a good way to stress test a grapics card? I want to see how hot my GPU gets, and it seems that running the benchmarks isn't the way to do it.

Running ati tool will stress it like a game would(3d view).

You can also use 3DMark05 or 3DMark06. They will both definitely stress your card and allow you to check for artifacts (not just scores) when you overclock the card.

Well, it appears that I might invest in a good ol' VF700 AlCu. My current temps are the fine line between normal and artifacting. Idle never drops below 49C even though I don't overclock 2D and low-end 3D and I have the fan running all of the time. Load temps get up to the 72-73C area, which I feel is too hot. Besides, I want to go above 400MHz stable core, 'cuz I know it's possible. I had it stable at 440 for a while, but it ran around 76-77C, which is even hotter.

My GT Idles at 52, and gets as hot as 78. Your temps are just fine.

Yeah, well the GT has higher clocks and a better cooler. Besides, I want to go higher on my clocks and I don't want the little tiny 40mm (or whatever it is) on my card to die from running at high speed all the time to keep the card at acceptable temps. Besides, it produces a noticeable whine when I don't have music or sound effects going on in the background.

Just run the 3D View window in ATi Tool.
