Everyone has their own opinion on stress testing. However, let's be sure about one thing: the more stress testing it can handle, the more stable it is. Or in other words: the more peace of mind you have about its stability.

Some excellent programs to use are:
  • Furmark
  • EVGA OC Scanner (but it only works for a BIOS that is EVGA-identifying). If you use this, then use these settings.
  • MSI Kombuster (but I haven't used it yet, so I can't field any questions about it)
  • OCCT

Of course, this needs to combined with real-world use as well.


Now, regarding Furmark, switch from "Benchmarking" to "Stability Test" so that it can run infinitely. Also, use "Displacement mapping" as well. For the resolution, you can try different ones, but of course you can also just stick it in full screen at your native resolution. The "MSAA Samples" is Multisamping Antialiasing. More is not always more stressful (more is not always better), so don't be afraid to leave it at None, or to use 2x or 4x.

Regarding EVGA OC Scanner: use the settings in the screenshot I linked above, and let it go for 2 full hours. It actually won't run any longer than that.

Regarding OCCT, the same rules for Furmark's MSAA apply for OCCT's Shader Complexity: more is not always better. Oh, and OCCT's test doesn't have a fun animation to watch. It's just a stationary image. The same thing is true for EVGA's OC Scanner: when using the settings I recommend (which were recommended to me by our resident experts here on OCN), it doesn't animate the iimage. It's kinda the same principle as ATiTool: when just watching ATiTool's "3D View", the furry cube animates. But when scanning for artifacts, it doesn't.

I think i like FurMark.. that thing is a beast! (pun intended).

FYI - Furmark is like the big ugly bully cousin of Kombuster. LOL

Thanks for the info!! +1

The max temp was 77C with 70% fan speed in a 76F room and my overclock is 800/1600/1800, 1037mv. There were no visible artifacts; no weird lines, tearing, odd colors, etc, so can I say my overclock is stable? I've been running all my games fine for 2 weeks now (Crysis, Metro 2033, Bioshock 2, Stalker CoP/CS, SC 2, and DOW 2) and there have been no artifacts or crashes. I ran Furmark before, but I had Xtreme Burning Mode disabled and 16xMSAA with temps at 74C.
Whoa. Yeah! Nice!

You're welcome!

I like Furmark too! I kinda like to watch that big furry doughnut.

I have to admit that I feel the same way while running Furmark. The only way I can calm my nerves is by trusting that as long as the temperature doesn't exceed like 100°C, then I have no reason to worry.

I can't get it all that way. Plus it saves it to html format. Photobucket doesn't upload that.

I'll just post the dang things in text. LOL

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Kombustor based on the Furmark engine?

Yea, I also like the furry rotating objects..wish I could touch them!

My setup with SLi on, I'm idling (steam updating games) at 164 watts.


Metro with everything very high, SLi, stock clocks @ .955v = 514w

I noticed your OC settings were very close to mine which are 1.025/800/1600/1800 but I've been having problems with Furmark.

I ran Furmark using these exact settings and crashed on the first run. I bumped up my voltage one notch to exactly the same settings and made it through 30 minutes with max temp at 75C with 100% fan.

If you don't mind, would you try running Furmark with setting that make my machine crash since we are having very similar looking setups? I can't get it to run in 1280x1024 "Xtreme Burning Mode", windowed, no AA, no displacement, no post fx.

I'm just curious if I am the only one with issues at this setting and maybe I should ignore it.

Just remember that even two identical cards can have very different overclocking limits.
