Hi Rodney, I just finished my new custom watercooling setup for my phenom 2 x4 965 and i'd like to know, what's the best way to test the watercooling.

I was thinking about some kind of program which puts my cpu on a 100% load and then check the temps. How do you test the temperatures in your reviews?

If you have a 64 bit os, make sure that you use the 64 bit version, also OCCT is great for testing too.
