FurMark Display Card Stress Test:

  1. First, download and install the latest version of FurMark from FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net.

  2. Run FurMark with full administrator access.

    How do I run an application once with a full administrator access token?

    Some legitimate applications require a full administrator access token to perform their functions or tasks. The User Account Control (UAC) message is displayed to request consent or credentials to allow an application to use the full administrator access token in any of the following circumstances:

    To... run an application with a full administrator access token, use the following procedure.

    To perform this procedure, you must be logged on as a local administrator or provide the credentials of a member of the local Administrators group.

    To run an application one time with a full administrator access token

    1. Locate the program icon or a shortcut in Windows Explorer.

    2. Right-click the program icon or shortcut, and then click Run as administrator.

    3. When the UAC message is displayed, do one of the following:
      • If you are logged on as a standard user, or if UAC is configured to always require credentials, enter the appropriate administrative credentials, and then click OK.

      • If you are logged on as an administrator and UAC is not configured to always require credentials, click Yes to start the application.
  3. Find your display resolution by right clicking the Desktop and clicking Screen resolution and enter it into FurMark's options:



  4. Change FurMark's settings as in the image. You want to run it for 20 minutes or until it reaches the alarm temperature you set up. 90 is a good number for AMD display cards, 80 or 85 is probably best for NVIDIA cards. The best method to set the temperature alarm is the maximum temperature of your card minus 10 C. If you do not know the maximum temperature, and you cannot find it through a Google search, ask the people helping you to find it for you.



  5. Run the Benchmark with user's settings and stop it once the temperature reaches a constant temperature, once the card reaches the alarm temperature, or once the video shows artifacts or strange colors.
