    CPU stability tests from Live Linux CD


    I want to test my CPU for stability. I have an overclocked system. The traditional way of doing this is to run Prime95 in windows. Several problems with this are: windows, running something that crashes windows if it does its job.

    Is there a CPU stability, stress test that I can run from a Linux CD?

    I have heard of a Knoppix knockoff called Overclockix. Know anything about it?

    Overclockix is a distro based on knoppix.
    But they do have tools on there that you might be able to use.
