*If this is in the wrong category or should be split into 2 different topics my apologies & I'll gladly change whatever is necessary.

 

Sometime this weekend the rest of my new PC parts for my first build ever should arrive. I plan to overclock the Ryzen 5 1500X CPU & 3GB MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X GPU. So I'll be needing to stability benchmark everything but I've heard some benchmark software can some with malware so here's where I need help. Although I've ran Furmark before on current older PC via some past instruction on BC Forums, I can't remember where that safe download link was from. Additionally I'm unsure if I should run multiple different tests for CPU, GPU & even RAM overclocks to ensure 24/7 stability.

 

1: What clean CPU, GPU & RAM stress testing/benchmarking software do y'all recommend?

 

2: Even if you're pretty positive the downloads are safe, what plethora of scans besides Malwarebytes & Windows Defender should I run?

 

New System Specs:

 

OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit Retail USB

CPU: Ryzen 5 1500X

Motherboard: MSI B350M Gaming Pro

RAM: 2 x 8GB G.Skill DDR4 3200Mhz

GPU: 3GB MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X

PSU: EVGA G2 550W

Storage: 250GB Samsung 850 EVO

Case: CoolerMaster MasterCase Pro 3

Unless your computer is showing obvious indications (signs of infection and malware symptoms) that something is wrong, there is no need to install a slew of programs.

You can always supplement your anti-virus or get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan.....ESET is one of the more effective online scanners.

You can also get another opinion, by submitting files to one of the online services that analyzes suspicious files.

Alright thanks, I'll keep these saved so I can refer back to this weekend.

I'd be a cautious overclocker when OCing the GTX1060; what headroom still exists, most folks can't use it when gaming at 1080P on 60 HZ monitors anyway. (i.e., somewhat pointless to OC the gpu if already getting 70+ fps on a 60 Hz monitor)
