Default How to check new Pentium D 940?

I am an AMD single core guy myself, but just built an Intel dual for someone and want to make sure both cores are working like they should be and numbers are where they should be. It is a video editing system so can't go by 3dmark or games. Would PCmark be enough of a test? I have heard about the dualcore hot fix and stuff but not sure if I need it for this system.

Running XP pro, PentD 940, Asus P5LD2, DDR2667, Matrox APVe, Rt.x100, blah,blah,blah.

Default Re: How to check new Pentium D 940?

Cinebench was a pretty sweet test for Hyperthreading vs Singlethreading, should be conclusive with dual cores as well:
-Intel Core2 Duo 4300 (3.0GHz) | Asus P5N-E SLI | 6GB Corsair CVS PC2-5300 | GF8800GT 512MB | Western Digital 1TB Raid0 | Antec SLK2600AMB | Antec Earthwatts 500W
-Intel Pentium4 2.4C (3.4GHz) | Asus P4P800 Dlx | 2GB Crucial Rendition PC-3200 | GF6800LE 128MB | Seagate 200GB | Antec Overture II | Antec TruePower 2.0 480W

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

Did the Prime95 thing with both cpu's running and it looks like all is well. Had 100% cpu usage and the performance tab showed two seperate graphs.
