Burn-in
Burn-in

Burn-in is designed solely to burn in the system. While "Diagnostic Modules" are suited for finding errors they do not generate maximum heat because of several checksum routines.

CPU Burn-in test is the same as Complex Matrix module except it doesn't have any routines to verify the results. It burns in ALU(Arithmetic and Logic Unit) to its maximum extent.

Memory Burn-in test is designed to put maximum load on memory with lowest side effects on CPU. It uses the following algorith

  1. Allocate memory in RAM(as much as specified)
  2. Fill it with Random data
  3. Divide the allocated memory in half
  4. Move data from the first half to the second half
  5. Move back data from the second half to the first half
  6. Go to 2
  1. Number of Threads to Run(CPU): Specifies number of CPU burn-in threads to run. For Hyper-Threaded CPUs or SMP systems select the number of CPUs(or virtual CPUs) available in the system. Windows automatically ballances threads CPUs.
  2. Run CPU Burn-in/Stop CPU Burn-in: Starts/Stops CPU Burn-in.
  3. Run Memory Burn-in/Stop Memory Burn-in: Starts/Stops Memory Burn-in.
  4. Number of Threads to Run(Memory): Specifies number of Memory burn-in threads to run. For Hyper-Threaded CPUs or SMP systems select the number of CPUs(or virtual CPUs) available in the system. Windows automatically ballances threads CPUs.
  5. Memory Size: Specifies memory size to be allocated for Memory burn-in.
