Default Looking for a graphics benchmark but can't remember the name...

Hey guys, in the past I used a graphics benchmark to test temperatures on my video card etc but now I can't remember the name of it! It was a small application that basically displayed floating marbles or something and used hdr and a whole bunch of filters. It was very good looking and the name is a bunch of random letters that obviously stand for something. Does any one know what I'm talking about? Thanks!

I've been using the Video Card Stabilty Test from this site FreeStone Group - Freeware and Shareware. 3D arcade games, 3D Screensavers, Clocks, Wallpapers, Desktop, Magnifier, software download for quite some time (have to click through to the utils section... I can't directly link to it because of the frames).

It does a great job of stressing your vid card, and has a small enough footprint on your desktop that you can see all of your other monitoring software while it's running.
