Hello again! Got my new rig built, and ready to go, short of the RAM. I'm just wondering which programs are good to do burn tests/benchmarking with? I tried Novabench, but it does stuff for 10 sec, which I don't feel does things like my SSD, any justice. Any sustained testing programs that you know of? Thanks again for any input!

hdtune for the ssd
pcmark and 3dmark should basically cover the rest.

Hey, I ran a benchmark on my SSD, and it said it's at a critical temp (128C), but it is definitely not, it doesn't even feel warm to the touch... any ideas? Also, how do I get things to start installing to my HDD instead of my SSD by default?

If it as at 128C it would be definitely "WARM" to the touch to say the least. Might want to install HW Monitor.

HW monitor is reading 128C as well, for min, max, and current values. It really isn't warm at all. Hard/software malfunction?

Yeah probably. Just like how it thinks my +12V line is at 1.02V. Come on, the system wouldn't even boot if that were the case. And I believe Speedfan was detecting a temp that's -128C. Yes, negative 128. I didn't know my air cooling was that good. lol And on a Pentium 4 I have, there's a sensor that always reads 429 million degrees. Uhh, that seems a little hot. And SSDs don't generate much heat. What drive is the OS installed on? Programs usually default to C:, is that the SSD?
