This is an extention of the Technical Support Guide found here
LinX is a great quick stress tester for your CPU. Its a great and quick way to test the max temp range of your processor. I personally find it better for temp testing than stability since Prime95 taxes more, but its a great overclocking tool or temperature marker if you are worried about your systems max temps or want to see what your new fans did to change your cooling power.
First make sure you have installed / opened Realtemps(link) or Coretemps (link)
You want to watch your temperature monitoring program to be sure you do not allow the processor to get too hot. I reccomend stopping at 85C.
Use is extremely easy, once installed, click LinX application to open
Simply click on "All", choose your number of times:
10-20 to gauge your temperatures
50 or more for stability testing
Remember, watch your temperatures, this possibly the hottest benchmarker around.
If the test fails: Program stops responding, your computer restarts, you get a blue screen....
Go up to "Resetting your BIOS" found in the Technical Assistance Guide http://digitalstormonline.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=12038#137781
After you reset your BIOS to defaults, start LinX test again. If you do not pass without a problem with your BIOS reset to defaults, you will need to contact DSO. You can reach Tech Support at http://digitalstormonline.com/customerservice.asp
If you pass the testing with your BIOS at default, the overclock was unstable. Post in the Performance/Overclocking section for help or contact Digital Storm to help you troubleshoot.
