cpu burn-in

I have just finished assembling a new computer.  In fact, it is the first one which I put together.  I am looking for recommendations on a cpu burn-in program.  There doesn't appear to be one in AUR or the standard repositories.


Sweet, now I can play with myself.

I'm not really sure what you mean? Are you looking for benchmarks?

Re: cpu burn-in

actually, i think he's talking about a program to heat up the cpu. i've read about some voodoo that says if you run your cpu very hot for a long while, it will run faster.

it reminds me too much about the hocus-pocus "audiophiles" out there.

Hmmm if that's the case

#!/bin/bash
while true; do
   dmesg > /dev/null
done

that should loop sufficiently fast enough, and do enough operations to shoot CPU usage to 90-100%

Just do "sleep 600 && killall oddscript" so it runs for 10 minutes....

Re: cpu burn-in

You could always install foldingathome and do something useful with all those cpu cycles wink

Re: cpu burn-in

I think he wants to test and see if everything is alright by putting the system under load. As someone else said, a distributed computing program or game should work just fine.
