GPU stress testing programs?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, 

 

I overclocked my gpu (r9 280) quite a fair bit but gta 5 did not like it at all, it artifacted if I put an even +50mhz oc on the core. Is gta 5 like know to not like r9 200 series overclocked gpus or is it just me?

 

Anyways, I did my stress testing on Valley, I'm going to download FurMark but I wanted to ask for any other programs that I'm forgetting. Which one would you pick?

Edit: I also have Heaven installed


Longboarders/ skaters message me!

Pretty much furmark, repackaged...

Furmark, but it stresses the GPU to an unrealistic level.

I use Firestrike from 3DMark because there is a lot of compatible data out there. Heaven is decent as well.

 

Regardless, if GTA5 doesn't like the r9 XXX series, it is clearly unstable and I personally wouldn't run at that OC...

don't bother with FurMark and any other tool made based on it

the drivers will auto-downclock the GPU when FurMark is ran
