While Stress Testing my CPU, Should I close other Programs?

Recommended Posts

While Stress Testing my CPU with AIDA64, Should I close other Programs in the back round?

The first time I tested my system I had a few programs of such as Corsair Dashboard so I could change the Fan speeds, a youtube streaming Task Manager and a few other things.

Will it effect the results or not?

Thanks.

Yes, you should close other programs, since they may interfere with AIDA64 Stability Test, or eat up too much CPU cycles that would be better spent on running stress test threads.

But, after having a few hours spent with AIDA64 Stability Test running, and getting no errors, you may want to start opening other applications as well, to see if it makes a difference. Sometimes the computer locks up or throws a BSoD quicker with a more diverse workload than with a single very demanding workload.

Well that's my goal today. 

I should test for how long? Two or three hours.

I just have one more question regarding CPU testing. Should I test all cores at once or one at a time?

That may sound aZZ question but since I hear why not.

Thanks, a newbie when it comes to Aida64.

Several hours is best. You should test all cores at once.

      My i7 4770k is overclocked to 4.6ghz at 1.28v with cache/ring ratio to 4.4ghz at 1.25v. When I stress test the CPU, FPU and cache at the same time, it runs fine for a few minutes but after that, it suddenly just stopped completely without me clicking the "Stop" button.
       
      Before I set my cache/ring auto,  I was running aida64 for 7 hours with no problem. Anyone know what's wrong?
       
      Here's a short video demonstrating the situation;
