I was watching this overclocking guide on Youtube the other day (can't remember what one) and I noticed this app the guy was using called OCCT. It's basically a system monitoring tool. I thought it looked great so I downloaded it: Download

I found it really helps you monitor things like vdroop when overclocking and has some good visual feedback on what's going on overall.

Anyone use it?

I think it's probably Jay from Jayztwocentz. Looks useful, I usually use HWinfo because I don't feel like paying for HWmonitor.

OCCT has been around for ages. What makes it useful is that it also includes a stress test that will test your system to real world levels and not the insane potentially damaging levels of a badly set Prime95 or IntelBurnTest levels.

I used it back when I cared about overclocking on my Q9550.

OCCT has been out here for ages. Anyone remember benchmarking with SuperPi back in the P2/P3/P4/C2D era? Also back when MSI Afternurner was still known as Rivatuner and everyone use to rave about the abilities of Speedfan?

I personally don't really use these stability tests. If my benchmark pass I am happy. If I can use my computer everyday with everything I throw at it and it works, then I am happy. The same goes for my memory. Interestingly I run my memory at 3480mzh CL14 on a AMD Ryzen setup and the memory is actually 3200 CL14 without any issues. I can play any game for hours without any problem. The reason I stated AMD Ryzen is that it is a little more difficult to get high memory speeds on this setup than with Intel. Still it is good and works pretty well.. Hell I can even do 3600 CL15 but at T2.

OCCT reports on GPU VRAM issues/instability so that can be useful if you want to test your card. I've used it many times to stress test GPU's

more stress=more heat using OCCT, and prime with AVX instructions is the best way to find the culprit if you in overclocking. + how good is your cooling etc
