Default test my new i7 machine

Hey guys,

what are some good benchmark programs to test out my i7?

I would like to make sure that my ram, cpu and other devices are working how they should.

Let's see, before I get into another full day of playing Fable: The Lost Chapters, prime95 is a good cpu stress test Prime95 (32bit) - 25.8 Download - EXTREME Overclocking , and the same goes for Linx LinX - A simple Linpack interface - XtremeSystems Forums. As for benchmarks, and a good indication of speed relative to the model, I use superPI with mod. The SuperPI 1M thread is here http://www.techist.com/forums/f10/te...p-list-169586/ . There are others, if you'd like to search for them, but those will tell you if your temps are normal, and where your performance is with regards to everyone else. I would say the Windows 7 Experience Index is a good indication, but it's built to different standards than just a standard benchmark. It's a good rough indication though.

To test your RAM for errors use memtest86.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

And don't forget to install the Folding@home client
