Almost completed my new build, just waiting for the GPU, CPU Cooler, and HDD to arrive, and I was wondering what would be a good program to get to test the speed and functionality of my build. The build is for gaming, i7-4770k and GTX 780ti.

Everyday usage

stress testing is a little tryhard IMO

I like using one of the FutureMark bench test apps. The current one now for GPU intensive games is the latest iteration of 3D Mark: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmark

I'm still using 3DMarkVantage because that is what all my previous builds were tested with. And it also gives a separate CPU score.

For a quick CPU stability test when O/C'ing, I like running Intel Burn Test: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/intelburntest.h...

I just want a program that will help me check that everything is running as it should and to up standard specs when it is under a full load as well as when it is idle

I get that .

But if everything runs you dont need to stress test it , so just run stuff you want to run and dont look for problems that dont exist

My main concern is the CPU was a restocked item, I want to be able to test it in case its off on performance and see if I should return it before the return policy is up.
