    Hi guys,

    Has anyone used a stress test to see their surface responds?

    The surface I bought for myself, which I returned--did this weird thing where it would freeze at 80 degrees.

    I have since got a new one that appears to be working fine, but I would like to do a stress test.

    Anyone have any recommendations other than the intel extreme tuning utility?

    What should happen to a surface when it reaches 80 degrees--throttle, fan, freeze?

    My i5/256 SP3 reaches 90 degrees at first, then fan starts spinning at its max level and clocks become lower. then temprature goes down to ~70 degrees.

    You can use heavyload from Jam Software to generate the load ttp://www.jam-software.com/heavyload/ and I always use the Coretemp tool minimized in the taskbar to keep an aye on the temperature ...

    It throttles when it is stressed. It shouldn't freeze or crash.
