Hi, All,

I am making a dramatic upgrade to my HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Mini. I will be replacing the I5-9500 with an I9-9900k. I want to do a stress test on the CPU so I can determine if the stock cooling system is adequate. What is the best software to use?

Since I am making this change for gaming purposes, I expect to lock the CPU in Turbo Boost mode. Will the stress test software run its tests in Turbo Boost mode or do I need to lock tlhe mode before I start the software?

Tia,

Larry

CinebenchR, Prime95, Aida64. Take your pick.

CPU bench will utilize CPU turbo boost if it is available.

But if you OC your CPU to fixed clocks, bench is using only the clocks CPU is fixed at.
