What software is good for stress testing in constant loop?

hello all,

I have been overclocking my system and trying to find stability . In battlefield 1 it sometimes takes 40 minutes or so before my system crashes due to instability . I have 3d mark advanced and can only run a 10 minute stress test . I want a stress test that I can run for 1 or 2 hrs or custom amount of time which would be much more suitable . Is there a paid/free piece of software for this ?


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Prime95 is my go-to program for checking stability.

It is very common for people who overclock their CPUs to use Prime95 to check the stability of their resulting system. If the computer cannot run Prime95 for 24 hours is is likely that the current Overclocking selection is not reliable enough and needs to be adjusted.

I have used Prime95 since the Pentium II / K6 days.

Good luck!

One of the best free tools to stress test the CPU, memory and GPU is actually Intel’s Xtreme Tuning Utility. This utility will allow you to select which component to stress test, for how long, and it simply does its thing. As Intel XTU is designed for overclocking the CPU. The utility will give information about the CPU such as utilization, frequency, temperatures, and whether thermal throttling was detected during the stress testing.
