    At work we have some old units fitted with motherboards where the Northbridge heatsink has popped off during use.
    having re fitted the heatsink and re-soldered its loop i now need to test the hardware to its limits to see if any heat damage has been caused.
    What i need is some intensive Burn testing software, however being the cheap gits at work and due to license issue i need the software to be free or a fully working trial (i can remove it after its finished). Can anyone recommend something that will work on W2K? I tried Sandra but it wouldnt run even after the W2K QDI+ module was intstalled.

    futuremark - if the PCs are old might want to try an older version.
    BBC climate - will cain the CPU/s, any folding program i.e SETI will do
    BIT Pro - tests various components like SiSoft sandra
    memtest - does just the memory but Northbridge does the FSB :)
    Aquamark - old program similar to futuremark

    Not sure if this is what your looking for twizzle, but I have used Prime95 when I wanted to test how stable a PC was - especially good for generating heat. The program itself is a bit like seti but is a search for prime numbers, although I've only ever used the torture tests. The link for the site is http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm
