    New version OCCT stability test

    I thought this deserves to be in news. One of the best quick stability tests is OCCT. New version 2.0 with built-in monitoring and improved error detection.

    From my experience if you pass custom test 1-2hours then you will be 99.9% stable on every other normal application such as gaming, encoding etc.

    If you have error in this, prime will fail after as long as 10+ hours, so it detects error much sooner

    Thanks for the heads up. I have always preferred this to orthos.

    Nice, I use OCCT as my main stability testing program. No need of Linpack and others.

    I used to use Orthos before but OCCT is now the only CPU/system stability test I need. Why settle for something that would need to be run longer when u can get it quickly checked with 30 ~ 1hr with this app and it will be stable enough for my comp usage.

    Custom simply unlocks the drop down menu. Of those, the cpu test is probably the best but others may argue that multiple methods are needed to detect instability.

    Great, thanks for this. Too bad they dropped the 'slider' from the previous release where you could choose the amount of memory to be tested at a given session.

    I used this overnight. The in-built monitoring is brilliant... tells me I need a new PSU

    I found that if OCCT is at least 20 minutes stable on RAM/CPU I'll get at least 8 hours of prime stability, did anyone else notice this? So what is it in OCCT that lets it find errors earlier? I think it's very convenient because you don't have to wait hours and hours just to realize that something is going wrong.. big

    Thanks for your cheers, guys, it makes me proud and happy people are finding OCCT useful

    I just released OCCT 2.0.0a today, fixing a few bugs in monitoring. And it should detect much more sensors on laptop (should you want to run OCCT on a laptop).

    As for the tests, the RAM test proved much more prone to "generate" errors than the CPU test... yes, it generates less heat, but it stresses the whole CPU-Memory chain, and errors tends to appear in such an environment.

    Mind you, CPU is still effective, but errors in RAM tends to appear faster.

    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.

    The Zip still does the whole thing of getting to 1.65mb out of 2.5mb (as reported by the download manager) and just stops. Archive is corrupt.

    I ended up getting the auto-installer, that worked fine
