    Dear All

    We happily announce first public beta of MSI Kombustor. This is standalone benchmark/stablity test tool based on FurMark, but now with big, nice and furry MSI logo.:). You can either run in seperately, or link with Afterburner to read more detailed information during stress test.

    After installing Kombustor, you can simply press the "K" button on Afterburner 1.5.0 and instantly launch 3D stablity test. Just that simple! You can also click the Kombustor icon on the desktop to launch GUI to customize your testing preference.

    This is first public beta, please try it and feedback to us. Do have fun with donut...I mean MSI Kombustor. :)

    You have forget the most important thing: error checking: for what is OC if it is not stable???
    Add error checking like option, and this will be perfect test

    Memory usage is exclusively available on NVIDIA boards only in Afterburner. Kombustor reads displayed data via Afterburner, so it won't display it too,

    You have two error checking devices installed in two sockets on your head. They are called eyes :D

    Agree with Unwinder, your eyes are the best artifact scanners in the world. :D

    With my 8800GT i don't get the good temperature. (PCB instead of GPU) and mem usage is in "%" and not in MB (156% in Kombustor and 156MB in AfterBurner)

    By the way, thank you, it's no big deal. :)

    Everything works fine , all the readings are good.

    Just one question , can you stress 2 GPU's that are running in sli together?
    Because when i run the Kombuster it only stresses my first GPU and never the second or both of them together.
    Am i missing something?

    New translation for you Unwider , because you keep adding stuff to AB :)

    Nice little program and the link with AfterBurner worked first time, very good.

    Running Kombustor on my 2x5770 crossfire i get 99% load on GPU 1 but only 17% load on GPU 2.

    Or does the load change after a while?

    I think it's best to have both GPU's fully loaded at the same time.

    Both of you are wrong. What I suppose to do- watching without blinking with my eyes in search for error on my screen? Program will better find any error then me in any case. And that is very useful option in this kind of program

    Yes Kombustor supports SLI, just try to tweak the SLI mode (AFR / SFR) because , I don't know why (profile?) NVIDIA recommended mode does not work. Either you set the SLI mode via NVCPL or better, you use nHancer.

    And don't forget to enable the SLI visual indicator.

    9600 GT in SLI - AFR mode. Works in fullscreen only

    9600 GT in SLI - SFR mode. Works in windowed and fullscreen mode

    Same thing for Crossfire: just enable the CrossFire in CCC and use the multi-GPU version of Kombustor (actually etqw.exe...).

    Strange.

    it should not...

    I'll try to investigate as soon as I have a pair of HD 5000.

    If your start the test within AB will struck with that. But if you start with standalone(multi GPU) it will fully push the 2nd core at least in 5970.
