So, what do we use these days? I know I can run 3Dmark06 loops, but they have downtimes inbetween them. RTHDRIBL is available, and its great for heat, but not really sure if its a good stability test.

Are there any good HL2 or FEAR loops I can run for 8 hours?

Thx

Actually the artifact tester in the atitool is heating up my GTX a lot faster than RTHDRIBL. Of course its missing advanced shaders so its more useful as an artifact tester for the memory overclocks, but "deep freeze" (in 3dm06) is better suited as an artifact tester for the core overclocks.

Allright, thats one option. I still don't like the load time between runs though.

Is this what everybody uses these days?

ATITool, or RTHDRBL work pretty good.

Another good one is Luna, Dusk, etc.

I usually run atitool and rthdribl at the same time. If you card is overclocked ati tool usually detects artifacts within 30 seconds this way. :D

Allrighty, I'll give ATItool a shot then. 0.24 is the latest (non-beta)?
