...emphasizing 'quick' with all its qualifications
(ie above), and also assuming that there should be a mix of CPU and GPU (re. gaming) I would use all of these:
1.) 3x consecutive runs of Cinebench R20 (supports AVX, AVX2, and AVX512 instruction sets)
2.) 8x concurrent instances of 'memtest' / 2200 MB each for 30 min (assumes freebie version limited to 2200)
3.) Aida 64 Extreme Stability tests (CPU, FPU, Cache, RAM; perhaps GPU) for 10 min
4.) 2x consecutive runs of 3DM Firestrike Ultra
5.) 2x consecutive runs of 3DM TimeSpyEx (and PortRoyal if RTX)
6.) 4k, 8K Unigine Superposition
Other folks may have a different recipe for 'quick stress test' combo, but if your system passes all the above, you're on your way to finalize settings for the full-meal-deal stress test.
