good day ROBers i just bought a asus g75vx last week. and red about the what to do when you get a asus g75.
my question is about
1. the stress test furmark.. do you just run it for 15min" the benchmark test" or for hours "pls specify..
2. concerning stress test running prime95 for 24hrs also advisable to check cpu stability?
and 3. about memtest86+ it says to burn it on a cd or flash then boot it from there... problem is when i went to the bios to
change the boot settings it looked dif to the one i had on my pc. it only showed the hhd my os is installed.. im kinda
new to these stress test things so yah im a noob ^^

cheers!! happy new yr!!!!

Welcome to ROG ..

Try Crysis2 .. it is a great 'stress test' .. a few hours of playing it .. you won't have any.
There are many such 'tests' .. I think they call them 'games' (hehehhee) which you
will find the G75 excels @.

Unless 'testing' and 'stressing' and 'benchmarking' and even OCing IS your Game.
(For the fun of it .. learning your equipment up one side and down the other.)

Other than that, my question back is: Why Stress ??? hahahhaa
Best of Luck .. (i know..shut up chrs..hahahhaa).c.

Now THIS is Stress :::: ing.

hahahaha I laughed hard when it hit him the second time. Isn't all the hardware tested for stability before it's sold? people only need to do it if they do custom builds and overclocking.

Time to regurgitate something that has been said by HiVizMan several times already - and what I believe to be sound advice.

Running Stress tests like Furmark, Prime95 and so on are a waste of time due to all they prove in all honesty, is that you can run those "tests" for however long you let them run their course. Sure, they push your hardware...but if you want real stability, do as ChrsPlmr suggested a while ago....run all your software over and over again, a few at a time. Put your system to sleep and bring it out several times....if your system survives this, then you know it's stable. Most "stability" issues come from "sleep" problems or incorrect OC's

Myk++ .. I couldn't of said it better myself .. hahaha .. without confusing someone .. hahahhaa

Load it up until it is ready to Puck (almost max ram you have) .. and put it to sleep .. go make a sandwich ..
have a beer/soda/coffee ... maybe a nap .... come back and wake it up ... everything on ?? running ???

You are as stable as ANY test will show .. and you will be confident that No Matter what you do
with your Rig ... It will not let you down ... c.
