I want to test everything that I can. Can someone recommend me tools?


I saw that my build is somehow strange this days even after I did Clean Install of Windows.
Now, I want to test everything of hardware.

What tools I need to do it? Mainly I want to test CPU, Memory, HDD, Temperatures...

Thanks in advance

Memory - Memtest86. Run for at least eight passes.
HDD - HDTune.
Temperatures - Speccy. For CPU you could use CoreTemp.
CPU - CPU-Z for CPU information. Stress test with PassMark.

If you can give us some indication of what the problems are we may be able to narrow it down and identify the problem quicker.

You can also use prime95 and Intel Burn Test for the CPU and Furmark for the GPU. However, the CPU stress tests are pretty hard on the CPU and heat increases very rapidly and I'm not sure it is a good idea to do it with the stock cooler. If you do, I would watch the temps very closely and stop the test if temps get too high. The same applies to any of the stress tests.

Sorry for not reporting earlier but I had few exams this week so no time for this :P

I tried CoreTemp for temperatures but it just freeze everything and I have to force poweroff (pressing power button for 10 sec).

I will try speccy and to test now everything.
Thanks a lot
