Just hit the maximize button and watch your GPU temps heat up

I usually leave it running for about 5 min and if there is no freezing or artifacts I consider it stable.

Trust me, enable the settings I said above and this is really one of the best stress testing programs out there I think. Stuff has passed ATItool artifact scan and been caught by rthdribl

rthdribl - Real-Time High Dynamic Range Image-Based Lighting 1.2 -
i just downloaded it...i didnt see any artifacts or glitches. and its cool to watch.

yeah keep an eye on your temps...when you enable bump/fleck and 16x multisampling it can heat up.

It's definitely one of my favorite stress testing programs.

also make sure to run it fullscreen otherwise it won't stress the GPU enough
