What do you all use to stress test your Videocard?
Hi, I am going to start trying to overclock my videocard and I would like to know what program you use to stress test your videocard. Thanks
I have an EVGA E-GEFORCE 9800GTX+ SC....What can I expect from this card (just so I can have some type of guide line)
I use Crysis. Good overall test IMO and I get to blow stuff up while I'm at it :biggrin:
Though really any game should do since that's real world usage. You could run things like FurMark, 3DMark, rthdribl as well.
ATI Tool, Furmark to check the temps, and looping 3DMark06/Vantage. I loop 3DMark06.
I usually use Crysis, 3DMark06 and Audiosurf. As crazy as it seems, I often was perfectly stable in Crysis with my 8800GTX, but in Audiosurf I'd get these weird artifacts branching out of the center. It is generally a good idea to run a few different stresstests and games as sometimes your overclock will be perfectly stable in one and crash five seconds into another.
ATITool works prefectly for quick stress testing
I like to use GPUCAPS it tests your card's advanced features and you can have it run the card at 100% of its load - The FUR test is a good stress test - use these with caution and always monitor your temps while doing so - because a faulty card or one that overheats will easily go above 100C. With the fur testing in GPUCAPS I have not gone over 82C on my 8800GT.
