What is the most intensive stabilty test
 
Hi , guys, i see alot of people using diffrent programs like prime 95, OCCT, Orthos x2 i would like to know what you think is the most intensive. This is for testing the quad. Thanks

Prime 95 with small FFTs.

You can use orthos with the priority set to 10, or 4 separate orthos' running with the stability at 2-4.

Whatever happened to TAT? The temps on that outweigh the temps on Prime and Orthos by around 3 C.

Madpistol's right. TAT (Intel Thermal Analysis Tool) is the most intense stressing program out there. Will get your CPU hotter than anything else.

TAT isn't compatible with x64 operating systems to my knowledge
use orthos if you are on such a system

True.

I run two instances of Orthos... one runs on CPU 0 & 1 and the other runs on CPU 2 & 3. I then set one test for small FFT's and the other to do a blend (which still maxes the other cores and tests the memory). I do that after testing all 4 cores on small FFT's :)

I use Prime95, one instance on one core, a 2nd instance on the second core. Both on custom torture setting I found on some forum. Left it running for over 1 hour, no errors no freezes no anything, it did 100% on both cores and I was browsing the internet in the meantime as well, computer response and all that was still fine, no slowdowns. :D
