Windows 7: Testing my rig

19 Nov 2013   #1

Win 7 64 bit
Testing my rig


I bought not long ago a CPU/RAM and MOBO as a second hand from a person.
They still have a 2.5 year warranty left.

I would like to check if my system performs as it should.
I didn't have any special errors our problems and I run pretty stable I guess.
Not really happy with performence in games as I have an old GPU (At least I hope thats the reason).

Is there any way to really confirm my parts run as they should?
I did some tests from here like Unigine Heaven and 3DMARK Vantage.. Seems ok I guess..
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i5-3470 Processor,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H77M-D3H
GPU temps dont go higher than 70c and CPU 50c or so..

Also ran MEMtest86+, was fine.

Guess Im just paranoid but is there any reason I should be worried?

BTW is my CPU Vcore normal? Doesnt seem like it..

Voltage looks spot on to me mate.

I think your Gpu is running as it should, but as Solar already mentioned in another thread, it's a few generations old now so will struggle in the latest games.

You really worry too much. Just enjoy the system. Older horses walk a bit slower.

Your i5/h77 is still a good setup. I think you would benefit from a newer gpu, could really boost your gaming experience.

Why are you testing Win 7?
Is it because you want to see how fast this new OS is? Gaming? Office and business applications? Just curious as to what's to come? Since this *will* be a new Windows OS, do you have anything to add for your reasons? As for me, I'm testing it to see how much malware we will see in the...
