Make CPU to work to max
///"Works in XP/ for vista also but must use some different options."////
Some times it is good to do some tests on CPU overheating.
For that you need to make it work to 100% for a while. (about 20+ min)
Yes, you can use scripts in cmd.exe to do that work.
script N1: one line script
@for /L %i in (0,1,999999999999) do @echo %random% > nul
scipts N2: nonstop scripts, untill you push Ctrl+C
@for /L %%i in (0,1,999999) do @echo %random% > nul
@echo %random% > nul
you can always start few tasks(scripts) at the same time to make it work harder.
@for /L %i in (0,1,20) do @start /REALTIME CPUscript.cmd
to make it easy to stop it make prepare cmd window with this kommand line:
just push enter when tied.
Or you could install Windows 98 on a 486. Seemed to work at school ;)
SiSoft's "Sandra" is a pretty good tool:
There are some other tools at the bottom of the page ;)
Prime95 or orthos, there is quite a few.
i was gonna mention sondra, its a good benchmarking tool, that and everest i think. and there free. 8)
Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation
has SPECviewperf for benchmarking Windows and Linux OS's also. It should put your CPU to 100%.
