Would you all make me some recommendations for some free benchmarking softwares I can use? I want to stress test the hell out of this little box, and aside from furmark and prime95, I am not really sure what is out there that would be worth running. redface.gif

I like OCCT for OC stability testing and Unigine valley and heaven are pretty good for GPU testing. I prefer 3dmark but not free.

3dmark is just a synthetic benchmark. Its not any kind of stress test.

UPDATE (UV Siamese)

So it has been nearly a month now and I am dying to post UV Siamese's system temps and stress test results using the Thermaltake Engine 27 CPU Cooler and the Noctua NF-S12B redux-1200 PWM 120 mm Case Fan. My computer is on 24/7 with neither system sleep or hibernation turned on; just screen sleep turned on.

CPU Cooler and Case Fan were both set on Gigabyte's 'Quiet' Smart Fan Auto Mode for the duration of the monitoring, as well as when performing the system stress tests which were conducted using HeavyLoad and StressMyPC stress tools. The CPU and M.2 SSD did not get as hot as I thought they would on the 'Quiet' Setting especially when I conducted the stress tests at the warmest time of the day with no air conditioning here in Thailand. Lowest temps reported were of course when the CPU was at idle with AC on during the evenings.

CPU: 24 | 57 °C
SYSTEM: 27 | 54 °C
M.2 SSD: 36 | 63 °C
2.5" SSD: 18 | 28 °C

I am very happy with this SFF build's performance thus far and extremely pleased with the performance of the little engine that could... at low rpm settings (under 700 rpm) the cooler is whisper quiet and I believe the Noctua may actually be more noisy than the Engine 27! The machine-like hum/whistle doesn't begin until the Engine reaches speeds over 700 rpm and the very load whine-like report, as heard on some YouTube review videos, only occurs when it is at max speed settings over 5500 rpm.

I am curious about something, is the bottom of your case solid. I have a Gigabyte Z170 with a bottom mounted M.2 SSD and my temps aren't nearly as high, highest I have seen is 52C. My Ncase has large ventilation on the back side of the case though.

Yes, completely solid; no venting.

From my limited internet research I believe the Samsung M.2 SSDs run slightly cooler than the Crucial M.2 SSDs so that could be a major factor. Also, please note that that max temp was begot via a SSD Stress Test conducted here in Thailand with no air conditioning on.

Yeah, probably a combination of inferior case ventilation (Silverstone ML06B-E has limited rear panel venting) and a slightly hotter running Crucial M.2 SSD. I am not too concerned as long as it stays under 70 C!

Encode a video or dvd with software like handbrake - stresses the cpu to the max
Play a couple of games where you max every setting - should at least stress the gpu to the max


Running any other bench or stress test, will give you results that will never be anything like the results you are going to get in everyday use.
for instance, software like intel burn, or other torture application is just that, torture of your component, and heaven or valley are synthetic, and doesn't use api's and call routines typical for gaming or encoding.


Hope this helps, and nice rig! looks very clean!

Thank you. Unfortunately not a gamer nor video/photo editor so no dedicated GPU nor such related software installed. Cheers,
