How to check if either the PSU or Graphics Card is dying

PSU: cooler master v650
GPU: GTX 970
CPU: I5 4460
10GB RAM
Do you that think running Heaven's benchmark or Witcher 3 for 2/3 hours, is a good stress test, i know about FurMark, but i'm kinda scarred to try it, what are your thoughts.

  1. For me, the best and fastest way of doing it is just running furmark and see how long it lasts.
    I had a CX600 which was crashing my GPU often and when I opened furmark it crashed instantly.
    But generally it differs between people.

    If it fails under Furmark it was gonna fail eventually anyway. That PSU while not the best isn't house fire quality. Most likely it will just blink out and shut down the PC die gracefully and then you know what to replace.
  3. It ran for 4 minutes 50 seconds, did't crash, i just exited because i was in hurry to get to a bus stop, max temp is 67, however my room was pretty cool and the air conditioner was turned. This was without the overclocked settings. So what do you think. I'm gonna try with my overclocked setting to see.

  5. with overclock 2 mins 50 secs, max temp 68, it did right after the first test, still in a hurry, so is it all good? Also is PSU good quality, i tried to get one from EVGA but i had a few problems.

    Try running furmark at least for a hour...
  7. Yeah 3 minutes isn't telling you anything, run for at least an hour if not more.
  8. Ran it at 1 hour and 5 min, stock clock on the gpu, i had to check on something so i alt-tabeb at the 40 min mark, so is this enogh, or shoul i test it for 4, 5 hours, the max temp was 67
  9. An hour is good you should be fine.
  10. Thanks for your help.
