I'm going to do a small write up for you guys testing mx4 and kryonaut on my CPU and GPU. Looking for the best software to use to get realistic max temperatures on the GPU. I will be using AIDA64 to stress the CPU and FPU

I would say use games, BF4, 1, Ashes of the Singularity loads my GPU more than any other game out there...and also has a built-in stress test that can be CPU or GPU focused...DX11 and 12. Star Citizen does okay... Elite Dangerous on planet or in space stations is another good one.

I also use OCCT's GPU testing as well...which is similar to FurMark.

I suppose you could do other benches like 3DMark, Asus ROG RealBench, Unigine stress tests are popular as well.

Furmark is the best for maxing Temps. But be warned, it will destroy a card that is weak or has stock cooling.

Blender. Run 2 instances and make one render on CPU. Make the other run on GPU.

That's as realistic as it can get while realistically pushing everything to absolute max under realistic condition.

Benchmark Scores well I've fried a 775' P4 12 years ago, that counts?
1. Get HWinfo, Run sensors,
2. open your all time favorite game, enjoy,
3. check temps when done with playing...
