Hello, I was wondering if there was a free cpu core test program to make sure all the cores are working correctly, I mean I just got a FX-8350 a few days ago and some things have come up that have made me wonder that I got a cpu out of a bad batch or something.

Any help would be appreciated, need to make sure before the 14 day return time is up.

What issues are you having? There is no such program that would actually do anything useful, though i wish there was! hahaha! issues you are having could and usually are caused by the supporting hardware, like the motherboard (Its firmware and its components such as the capacitors ect) your ram, and even your power supply! we are going to need more info then that! haha :p

EDIT-- There are programs, they just do certain things that may not show types of issues you may be having. You may be able to use something like prime 95 and stress it to see if you have a bad core

Well I got the cpu to speed up rendering in a 3D modeling program called Blender and well before I upgraded the program was using 100% of my old CPU's four cores but now, with the new FX-8350, blender rarely uses more then 22% and usually sits around 12 to 15% when rendering, in the program, blender I have it set so its suppose to use 8 cores, 8 threads but it seems like it only uses the first core, I mean I do see some active nness in the other fores but no more them maybe 15% though a lot of the time two cores have no more then %5 in use

The most recent version of Ultimate Boot CD has the latest version of StressCPU and Prime. They both boot under a Linux image and can stress all cores to 100%, including the FPU modules. It's nice because it runs bare off of the disc, so a Windows crash is impossible if things go wrong.

I figured it out sorry guys, turns out the program only uses one thread on the type of rendering I was doing, it does use all 8 when rendering phy and other renders, just not in the way I expected it to heh.

My cpu and all cores are fine, I didn't get a bad CPU

Thanks for the help non the less!
