GtkStressTesting — a utility for stress-testing computer components.


The program is intended to perform load testing and monitoring of components of your computer.

  • Stress tests for the CPU.
  • Stress tests for RAM.
  • Single – and multi-core benchmarks.
  • Display information:
    • The condition and model of the processor.
    • The cache state of the processor.
    • Information about motherboard.
    • The condition and model of RAM.
    • The use of memory.
    • The load on the processor.
    • Timings.
    • And some other information.

Previously met only a command-line utility to create the CPU load that carries no information content and management. Not long met a similar program that can create an artificial load on the CPU to check for stability and monitor temperatures, voltages and other important information, and then look at the sensors, without resorting to using third party tools. This is the analogue of the stability test AIDA.

Settings allow only to select the refresh rate of the readings. Graphics and power consumption in watts yet. The frequency of updates on the website happy with new versions about every 1-2 months.

The program is suitable for stress stability tests and temperature control when changing thermal paste and other overclocking experiments.

GtkStressTesting allows via GUI:
1. In the left half:

1.1. To create different kinds of loads on the processor. The stress test is also adjustable;
1.2. To find out information about the processor;
1.2.1. The name of the model and specification;
1.2.2. Version firmware;
1.2.3. Socket;
1.2.4. The number of cores/threads
1.2.5. Family, model, stepping;
1.2.6. Supported instructions;
1.3. To find out information about the cache;
1.4. To find out information about the motherboard:
1.4.1. Manufacturer;
1.4.2. Model
1.4.3. Version and the manufacturer of the BIOS
1.5. To find out information about the RAM in each slot
1.5.1. Volume;
1.5.2. Frequency;
1.5.3. Collector
1.5.4. The precise model name (example KHX2666C16/8G)

2. In the right half:

2.1. CPU utilization by threads;
2.2. The average load;
2.3. Memory usage;
2.4. Average/Minimum/Maximum frequency per core;
2.5. Sensor readings (Current/Min/Max):
2.5.1. Voltage;
2.5.2. Temperature;
2.5.3. The strength of the current.
