Looking for system stress / burn-in software

Recommended Posts

Guest wsxedcrfv

I've got a few motherboards that I need to determine their operational reliability / stability while running XP, so I'm wondering if there is any free software that can do stress testing or "burn-in" operations for one or two weeks continuously running under XP. Basically, any software that can keep a system busy doing stuff until (or if) the system crashes or locks up. Serial, parallel, network, audio and USB stress testing is not required.

Anyone know of any such software?

CPUBurn (gui version here...this thread elsewhere has some screenshots of it).

Get the gui version, and instead of installing it, extract from it BURN??.EXE and CPUBURN.* together into a, say, "CPUBurn" folder, and then run CPUBURN.EXE or create a shortcut to it and run the shortcut.

wsxedcrfv, I use OCCT, Prime95 and SuperPi (HyperPI). All are free and can be found via your favorite search engine. Enjoy, John.
