hello, when i first built my pc i wanted to make sure everything was working correcly so i heard about prim95 and ran it but i was not very convinced that it was achually putting a full load on my CPU and other parts as it did not slow computer down at all.. i would think if the CPU was fully and near fully cunsumed with prim95 wouldnt it be slow?

 

i was able to play crysis 2 on high and recorde footage with fraps while running prim95 with very minimal lag i only did this once however.. ( also did the break in for the cpu paste )

 

i was wondering if there are any other good stress test programes out there? or am i not running prim95 correctly?

You can monitor cpu usage in task manager, you can get to this by using Ctrl + Alt + Delete, then clicking task manager. Prime 95 will use your computer at close to 100% and usually this does make the system slow. After opening prime 95 you have to click a few times to get the test to start. If you see your cpu usage at 100% or close to this, then the test is running correctly.

Be aware that these burning programs often use instructions that will cause the CPU to heat up far beyond any temperature you'd get during normal usage. IBT especially.
