cpu burnin has a Linux version that runs

Extract then make the file executable
run with this command ./cpuburn-in 10

I also can run hotcpu in wine version 3.0

I have had some issues with a MB and CPU freezing up randomly. I have done all sorts of things, last one was to physically remove the bios chip and reinsert, and so far for a few hours have been able to install mint 18, and run those prog5rams ok.

MB is an Asus M4a87TD-EVO, which lots of people have had troubles with regarding stability. Mine was even locking up in the bios section.

test finished with no error, so assuming the B95 AMD CPU phenom x4 is ok. CPU temp never got above 48*C, MB temp is 37*C

Test Complete. No errors were found after running 4603538 tests.

Well the motherboard froze solid again, no interaction, no mouse, no flipping the cap lock light on and off. Fans stay running, and you can power it off with the switch.

I had installed phoronic test suite, it got through test #30 motherboard ok, but then running the complex system test it died right at the beginning, and now refuses to boot at all. Course it is totally random when it freezes up.

Then when it does come back, after resting a few minutes, it always comes up with bios only activating 3 cores. If you go into the bios, it will have switched to manual versus auto, and one of the cores will be set to off.

Lots of complaints about this ASUS board are here, lots of freezing issues.

I decided to play with manual settings.
I set cpu to 220 versus 200
I dropped the ddr3 ram from 1600 to 1100
I increased the cpu voltage offset a little, so cpuv now shows 1.5v
I increased another cpu volt just a little, forget what it is called.
I set ddr3 volts to 1.5v
After it crashed, hard drive booted with file system errors, so had to run fsck at busybox prompt, then it booted into the desktop.

Right now running the complex system test.

I would like to get it running stable if possible just as a toy for the kids to game on.

shoot it, it jammed again, after finishing the test, so I cant read the results.
