So I have my new system up and running. I would like to run tests to check all parts of my system are working correctly. What do you recommend?

My system parts are:
intel i7-950
asus x58 sabertooth
6GB corsair 1600MHz RAM
750W Corsair TX PSU
ASUS ATI radeon 6870
1TB Western Digital HDD 7200rpm

Welcome back ja9g08;
Congrats on a successful build.
Have you had all your updates done? Drivers and OS?

It mentions several tests to run and some software for system monitoring.
Don't forget that a gaming session is a pretty fair way to test the system too.

I use OCCT for most testing as it performs both testing and monitoring functions....then I can use the graphs to look over the results in detail. I like OCCT cause its 60 minute tests don't require the "overnight" time commitment of P95 and memtest .... of course once I have my OC dialed in, then I'm going to use P95 as the final test.
