    you can test ram with memtest..
    Cpu with orthos
    Gpu with furmark
    there are more im sure others will list..

    If this is not what you meant, I am unsure

    congrats on up and running...

    I like as mentioned MEMTEST

    HDTACH for hard drive

    PRIME95 for stress test if your OC'ing and need to check stability

    UNIGINE HEAVEN for video

    Whats in your system anyways ?? you havent mentioned specs

    I downloaded CUPID and its showing that my RAM is running at 667mhz. In the bios I have it set to 1333mhz. Whats going on with that?

    Nice to hear it's going again. Was it the hard drive?
    The DDR stands for double data rate so you have to multiply what you see there by 2 and you have roughly 1333MHz. So it's fine.

    If everything's going fine you don't need any tests. Check only your temps with this:

    it's realtemp and the CPUid

    Yeah it was the damn HDD lol. Bought a new one and it worked like a charm.

    THanks for that info lol. Makes sense.

    Yeah I haven't overclocked anything other than the GPU but I didn't tweak any voltages, although I could. My CPU is running at like 3.4ghz.

    I don't have a custom cooler so I don't want to go to high. I have very good cooling for the case and all so I might see how high I can safely take it. I want to OC a bit more and see what happen.

    Whats a safe max temp for the CPU?

    Max temp supported would be like 98C but you don't want to run it at more than 70 under full load, which you will not have under normal circumstances. I don't recommend any OC with stock cooler. When all four cores are running yeah, you'll have 3,4 otherwise for 2 cores you'll see 3,6

    OCCT is good too, for cpu/gpu/gpu-memory

    Linx - CPU

    Memtest in-OS won't be as accurate as a bootable tool, like the Windows Memory Diagnostic. Just type Windows Memory Diagnostic into the start menu search bar to schedule a check, or hit F8 when you're booting and press tab to get to it.

    UBCD is a bootable disk with Memtest, as well as some manufacturer hard drive utilities, and a few surface scan tools. You can run these in Windows however, check your HDD manufacturer's website for a tool or use HDTune for error checking.

    For GPU Furmark is a great one as said above, so is OCCT, which has GPU and GPU-Memory if your card is CUDA, as well as a PSU test which runs everything at once.

    Yeah I don't know. I'll give it a whirl and see what happens. I'm a risk taker like that lol.

    I need a good cheap air cooler because in the end I do want to OC it to like 4.5ghz. And when I say cheap I don't mean $60 cheap. I mean cheap but efficent.

    I'd get the dh-14 or whatever it is but thats expensive. Whats a good alternative

    Don't need to make extreme test as Prime95 for hours and memtest if you don't have problem. Thoses are used for test stability of OC.

    for check your installation ( temp voltage etc ) you can use HWInfo32. and ofc your motherboards software .

    For be sure your ram have no error, download SuperPi 1.5 and run test from 1M to 32M. For your videocard/CPU, download 3Dmark06-vantage-11 and make them run just for check your hardware under load ( GPU+CPU ) or PCmark11.

    Normally fresh hardware not overclocked will rarely give you trouble, untill ofc one have a failure. But on this case you will get BSOD or lock and you will see it.

    3dmark11 is a good one as if there is an issue it will not complete the test. Avoid those bake tests like prime and IBT. They do not relect anything you would do in real world anyways so why use it? If you want to bake your CPU then just toss it into the overn at 450 degrees for an hour...

    You don't need the noctua to reach 4,5, I'd say a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ should do the trick.
