How To Use FurMark Test?
« on: January 13, 2015, 10:02:53 PM »
Hi...I am trying to run the FurMark 1.11.0 GPU test but don't know if I'm doing it correctly. I let it run for 30 min and nothing happened so I stopped. Should I have been waiting for something?

I ran the "Burn-In Test." Is that the right one?

I've had computer lock up problems and have tried a ton of thing with no luck. Just checking this one out.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

FurMark is essentially a GPU burner. If you can run FurMark for 30min without any issue, then you system is ok (read there's no thermal problem with your GPU). The FurMark module of GpuTest is slightly different from the original FurMark (http://ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/).

Try to burn you GPU with the original FurMark and check the Preset:1080 score to see if your GPU runs properly.
A list of Preset:1080 scores can be found here:

Hope that helps.
