Folding@Home Stress Utilities

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried these utilities before? Are they good at stressing out the gpu? I'm in the process of trying them out, and they seem ok. You can set the amount of memory to use and how many iterations to go through.

They stress the memory mostly. GPU load doesn't go up much while its running though for me anyways.

Yeah the highest it goes is 90% usage, that is if I set it to use 1170/1280MB memory.

lol what? F@H GPU3 doesn't even use any vram.. it's all about core/shader clock

and yes, it's really great for stress testing... if you can complete a WU then you're most likely stable

here's the guide to setting up the GPU3 client
