Hello all you computer builders,

The best way to test, burn in, or challenge your new build is with folding. Not only can you test your new hardware to its max you can help cure the worst diseases that challenge us daily.

Head down to viewforum.php?f=32 and see what others are doing.

Prime32 I think for the CPU. Furmark if you're doing anything GPU related.

Not sure it's the "best" way to burn-in, but it's definitely the most productive (what other burn-in method produces data for scientific research???) & my personal method of choice. I usually do a week-long Folding @ Home burn in on my personal equipment, & at least 2 days worth on builds for other people, longer if they aren't in a hurry.
