We use OCCT in Linpack X64, AVX compatible with all logical cores tested and 90% free memory utilised. The test is set up to run automatically with just a few clicks to set it going. A 10 minute idle followed by 30 minutes of testing and a 5 minute cool down is the order of the day and brings the total test time per clock speed to 45 minutes. So as to remove subjectivity in determining whether a CPU has failed, OCCT is set to stop the test and register a fail should the max temp exceed 80 degrees. As with the socket 2011, in testing we noted that if even just one of the cores exceeds 82 degrees OCCT halts the test and a fail is recorded.
The software has plenty of profiles built in allowing you to tailor your cooling to your particular demands. It doesn't just go with the old stand bys of quiet, middling and balls-to-the-wall either, as there are plenty of profiles and even processor based profiles within those profiles to ensure that those of us who aren't keen at the prospect of frying their processor with a misplaced curve can be up and running in a stress free manner.
The iCUE software has all the tricks up it's sleeve that we have come to expect from Corsair and their RGB lighting, just applicable to the H100i Pro. The big push at the moment from Corsair seems to be a holistic approach to your system lighting and the addition of the H100i Pro to this is welcome. When you can have reactive, one click adjustments to your entire setup from keyboard to case, you have to stand up and applaud.
