Anyone know of a good CPU burn in prog i am trying to run in my celery 400a @600 and i need a good CPU intensive prog to burn it in, Not Quake games though as i am having probs running games on it at the moment as i have level1 cache off.

Any ideas?

You can allways use SETI@HOME and join the MURC seti group! Go to http://www.murc.ws/Seti.html

Prime95 is probably the finest cpu burnin proggi around! It's not designed to do that specifically but is the single most powerful floating point calculation progam that runs in a continuous running mode. If it's unstable this one will find it! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

P.S. only Prime95 forces my Athlon 850 to draw so much current that I can hear the powersupply "sing"!

Guru, seti@home is far to whimpy to test stability!

Well, How about this one,... if you do some of the background reading, aparently its some of the harshest code written for a processor, but hey, my CPU is stable with it 24/7 so I'm happy.

I like to use Final Reality in software mode to burn a chip in. Seems to be good test.

When I was doing my initial overclocking of my p3-450 before i got my new antec ks-188 case, i tried prime95. It handled 2 hours of that no problem at 558. I fire up quake2 looping demo's (massive, crusher, demo1, etc) and within an hour it had locked.
Your best bet is to crank Q2 up to 1024x768@32bit and let it run overnight. If it can handle that, it can handle anything.

Greebe, where can I download Prime95? Thanks

Tried Prime95 on my PC when it was clocked to 500, upped the VIO voltage to 3.5, it ran for 1 hour then crashed DOH!, but it will run all games and apps fine for days, so Prime95 seems a good bet for testing it @ 600

Echo, I'll agree with that one too as long as it's run in software mode only! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Muad'Dib, here (http://www.mersenne.org/prime.htm)

Joe, then I guess it's not really stable then is it! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif
