Checklist for loop before adding a GPU?

Recommended Posts

Any advice on what to do to sort of okay my loop with just the cpu before adding a gpu?  Stress test software?  Temps?  Scores?  I kind of want to make sure everything is good before adding the gpu so that if there is an issue with temps etc. after the gpu, I can at least know that I was good before adding it and that the gpu is the issue if there is one.

 

Thanks for any help.

You can run AIDA64 and stress it for a while to see if the temps level off.  They should hit a point where the loop is saturated and you're strictly dissipating the heat made by the CPU (not warming the water up to temperature).

I see. I'll keep that in mind.

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
