    Hyper Pi 0.99b

    Calculate the value of PI for as many digits as you would like, and test the amount of time it takes for the computer to process. Commonly, the software is used to see what CPU/memory settings will complete the task in the fastest manner, or to determine whether the system is stable with particular settings. Of course it can also be used as bragging rights

    Real Temp 3.70

    Great tool to monitor CPU core temperatures. Especially when overclocking, pushing frequency to the limit, and stress testing for stability, this program is handy to remind you of danger! Especially with the new LGA 2011 CPUs and Extreme Series CPUs in general, they're not cheap! so don't catch yourself slipping. Safety first.

    Prime95

    Find prime numbers! But this program is best used as a stress test to place your system under 100% load. If you can pass 30min-1hr of this torture, chances are your settings are stable. Keep in mind that CPU temps can be at their highest while running this test, so make sure to keep an eye out on the CPU temps to avoid damage. Many CPUs have failed while running this test, so once again, be very careful and always make sure you have proper cooling.

    MemTest 2.5 Dang Wang

    If experiencing blue screens, random shut downs/restarts, memory type issues, use this software to test for errors. With the proper settings in EFI/BIOS, test one module at a time to determine whether it contains any errors. A perfect module will be error free. If the program detects errors, you may need to get an RMA and have the memory replaced.

    CPU-Z

    This program displays general information about your CPU, mainboard, and memory. Much of the desired information such as CPU/memory frequency, timings, multipliers, CPU VCore, SPD timings table, can be found with this software. The memory tab is most important when overclocking memory; it will display current DRAM frequency, timings, and other pertinent values. Note, DRAM Frequency shows real frequency, not effective frequency, so if it shows 800MHz, that means it is DDR3-1600.

    If it shows 1200MHz, that means it is DDR3-2400. DDR is double data rate, so real frequency x2 = effective frequency.

    There are many other tools that we will post when available. We will only list freeware, but there are many programs that can be paid for to do other things like benchmark.

    ***********
    Here’s a few more that I also use and might come in handy (Tradesman):


    MaxxMEM Preview

    Provides Memory benchmarks on Mbytes/sec for your DRAM on Copy, Read and Write and Latency in ns.

    http://www.maxxpi.net/pages/download...---preview.php

    ----------------------------
    Si-Sandra Lite

    Good program that provides a number of benchmark tools, also evaluates the overall system and provides helpful hints.

    http://www.sisoftware.net/?d=&f=downandbuy&l=en&a=

    ------------------------------------

    PassMark Performance Test

    Another good all round benchmarking/testing software, trial version available:

    http://www.passmark.com/download/pt_download.htm

    -----------------------------------

    Nova Bench

    Not a bad BM utility program – others may have more features but a solid program

    ----------------------------------

    Core Temp

    A similar alternative to Real Temp

    http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

    ---------------------------------

    Crystal Disk Mark

    A program you can use to bench your SSDs , Flash drives and mechanical hard drives (also works on most RAID setups,
    even SSD RAIDs)

    Well i overclocked my AMD FX 6100 with the Asus OC software ,since im just getting in too OC i let the Asus software do it for me as i didnt want to mess up ..but anyways it took my FX6100 on fast settings from 3.3Ghz to 3.8GHz & extreme settings from 3.3GHz to 4.2GHz so i was impressed with that .
    But its odd when i saved the OC settings Windows 7 still detected it as 3.3GHz rather than 3.8GHz or 4.2GHz .
    Maybe i should take a screenshot next time of the OC?

      If you have some of the power saving features on in the BIOS like Speedstep, it will idle down to stock when little activity, if you run a program like MaxxMem, up on top of the window it will display what the CPU is set for


      Pls offer comments on support I provide, HERE, in order to help me do a better job here:

        Here are a couple usefully tools to have

        Hardware Info

        http://www.hwinfo.com/download64.html


        SIW (System information for windows)

        http://www.gtopala.com/


        Just pay attention to what your really downloading. They have a lot of download buttons that don't goto downloading their program.

          HWInfo is good and will take a look at SIW, I'm sure these would be handy for many, Thanx
