    When Artdrivers is suggested run some test, I think he meant stablity tests like Prime95 or maybe LinX if it works with AMD.

    i7 Turbo GT is not going to work as i7 is a intel name for their processors.

    You should download CPU-z, coretemp should show you core temps of your cpu.

    Speedfan is just to adjust the speeds of your fans.

    Dont think you need Clockgen and I dont think that works with Win7. Never used the program.

    LOL I am sorry your board don't have it so never mind it,.
    Please fill your forum signature with your system specs, this will help us prevent such confusions.

    Just finished filling my signature with my system specs.

    Also, I already have CPU-Z
    I ALSO had GPU-Z... but I cannot locate it.


    If anyone knows of any pay software to monitor system performance... Im open to those too

    Yes that's right Linx with speedfan works well for my setup. Linx with any cpu temp monitoring should suffice for the starting run. Without errors we can tweek some more if needed, and run the tests again.

    Got a link to this LinX application?

    You wouldn't imagine how many results pop up when you tag LinX+Software into Google™

    There are different application for different benchmarks, memory, CPU computing power, and graphics some combine 2 or more.
    For CPU computing power you can use LynX, CINEBENCH CPU tests, wPrime, and SuperPi mod.
