Don't know about Aida64.
The objective of a stress test is to run the cpu very hard using the instructions that are common to many applications.
That is a more realistic stress for most of us.
Prime95 uses only a subset of instructions.

My answer has to be... use none.
If you have a heat issue, use a monitor to diagnose and fix.
After that, don't bother.
If it is just a matter of interest, speedfan can have a nice temperature number on the taskbar.

I heard that OCCT & Aida64 can really heat up a CPU a lot and quite fast but you suggest OCCT.
I'll check that program out once I get a chance.

Thanks.
I just have one more question. Using a program such as Prime95, Aida64 and the other tested isn't that realistic is??
Honestly, If I used a program like mentioned above.
