on google. it's the very first link.

as far as learning curves are concerned... press the big green button which says go. if your computer doesn't crash within 10 mins your hardware is more than likely functioning properly. if it crashes quickly, you have a hardware problem of some sort.

all this program does is run a lot of very heavy computations to make sure your computer is able to take a heavy load. This is a synthetic load and is harsher than almost anything that'll ever be thrown at a system. OCCT is a tool used by overclockers to make sure their stuff works.

Re: Freezes and spontaneous blue-screens

Just making sure. A lot of performance type programs out there are rather complicated and I can hardly understand them. Most of the stuff on CPU-Z is even too much for me.

Thanks a bunch man.

Re: Freezes and spontaneous blue-screens

you press the big green button that says ON...
to stop the test you press the red button that says OFF.
if it doesn't crash, you're fine.

you'd've been done by now if you typed it into google, hit download and hit the big green button.

Re: Freezes and spontaneous blue-screens

Hey! I wasn't saying it was too much for me! I was merely explaining why I was concerned about that in the first place! I've already downloaded it and am going to run it when I get the chance, haha.

Thanks again, though.

EDIT:

It ran for about thirty minutes and then it said my CPU was too hot. Nothing failed, and the test still continued. I figured I'd shut the test off and turn the computer off to let it cool. It is a laptop so heat issues are kind of ... normal. I had to go to class anyway and so I didn't really have a full hour of free time to devote to running the test. And it's probably best not to stress-test it to above maxiumum capacity right before I need it. Will run again later.

Re: Freezes and spontaneous blue-screens

5-10 minutes is usually more than enough. if it made it to a half hour, you're fine hardware wise, try doing a repair/upgrade on windows.
