Preset test case configurations
Unlike most benchmarking utilities, BurnInTest Professional lets you put nearly any hardware component under the scope. By default, you have several quick tests you can perform, such as maximum CPU temperature, CPU coverage, RAM, 2D or 3D graphics, local or removable disk scan.
Thoroughly choose custom settings for profiles
In addition, you can perform custom test cases you can thoroughly modify from the preferences menu. From CPU, RAM, graphics, network, disk to printer, sound and a lot more, each of these categories have a dedicated page in the preferences menu, with thorough options you can set for custom test cases. For example, you can choose a custom number of cores to be tested under CPU, as well as extensions like SSE, AES, 3DNow! and more.
Take caution though, poor management of these options can lead to instability or even permanent damage to hardware components, because during these tests, devices are stressed to the maximum.
