    Not for the overclocking just the artifact scanning

    I don't think so. ATiTool is greatly depreciated at this point. The top tests are either Furmark or Kombustor, but such tests are usually not recommended because they cause extremely high loads and could possibly damage your card. Most people set a benchmarking utility (3Dmark, unigine) to loop and watch for artifacts or crashes. Others just game on and hope for the best.

    I still use it for testing video cards and OC
    In many instances it detects artifacts way earlier than games

    I've since made an effort to actually push my graphics card (thanks to 7 days to die, game loves fast vram it seems). I used OCCT GPU test. It does have an artifact scanner. So far so good since I found my max stable clock with OCCT...

    In my experience, Atitool seems to detect them earlier than OCCT when OCing (i.e it needs less scan time to detect them) while OCCT takes longer but that was with older GPUs
    It's true that OCCT is more modern, is actively developed, supports DX11, has more options, and is more likely to be more relevant with more recent video cards

    I'm having a problem with OCCT not downloading. The page just refreshes every seconds. Even clicking the link it wont work. Using Google Chrome.

    I take back what i said about it not downloading, it must be a chrome thing. I downloaded on IE just fine.

    I think I had the same issue. Instead of trying a different browser (using Chrome as well) I just downloaded it from Major Geeks.

    I don't have any issues with Chrome and the official OCCT site :confused:
