    Stress Testing and Benchmarking


    Two new builds; one with 5930K on Asus X99-A with an Intel 750 PCIe Add-In card and one with 6700K on Asus Z-170 Pro Gaming with an Samsung 850 Evo. I need to stress test them, and bench mark the SSDs prior to installing any software. I ran Memtest86 this night (3 hours on the X99). What programs do you suggest to use?

    It seems Prime 95 does not support W10 and my processors.

    It already seems clear something is seriously wrong with the X99. Unzipping a file was done with <10 MB/s...

    Thanks! Is running AIDA64 stress test right now. Will then run its benchmarks and the some real Life testing. Likely to try RealBench depending on outcome from planned tests.

    Try Cinebench too, it loads system to the max, more than Wprime and Prime 95. Download has a wide range of tests and shows a lot of data while doing it. It will also show any imperfections if they exist, it's very comprehensive test with burn in capabilities.

    Ok, have been doing some testing...
    First the little file copy test. Copied 6 x 1GB pictures (total: 6.09 GB) from one folder to another on the same internal SSD:
    - Intel 5930k on Asus X99-A with Intel 750, 400 GB SSD: 288 MB/s (test 1) and 271 MB/s (test 2)
    - Intel 6670k on ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming with Samsung 850 EVO, 500 GB SSD: 421 MB/s (test 1) and 277 MB/s (test 2).

    It seems only one core was active in the 5930k, and activity was minimal.

    Unzipping a file of 2.9/3.83 GB (zipped/unzipped)
    X99: 71/93 MB/s
    Z170: 80/105 MB/s

    I guess this is reasonable if only one core is active.

    Running the internal benchmarks of AIDA64, the 5930 was the winner throughout most tests, ranking very high in all tests. Also the Z170 did very well, outperforming the only similar competitor and, in one test, being the overall winner. The Z170 seemed somewhat more consistent, but the X99 was superior in most tests.

    Stress test was somewhat a surprise to me. The X99 maxed out at around 65 C (for CPU) also in FPU test and most curves were fairly straight. There were some peculiarities though:
    - Like once every 30 minutes, or so, the PCH temperature made a short peak for about 15 s up to ~240 C. The voltages for the memories showed smaller peaks but also dips (down to 0 V), like every 10-15 minutes. Otherwise it looked nice. It was the same in both ordinary stress testing and CPU FPU test. The Z170 has now been tested for 2 1/2 hours and all lines look very straight.

    One thing puzzles me when it comes to the X99. As you can see from the attached snip from the Device Manager, it shows 62 lines containing "Intel Xeon E7/v3Xeon E5/v3 Core i7...". Why? I have the latest BIOS and all chipset and other mobo drivers are properly updated.
