Is your graphics card memory free of errors? If you overclock them and it overheats, chances are, the RAM memory might be damaged. Unlike other components in your desktop, if a memory fails be it RAM or GPU’s Memory errors, your system will automatically reboot itself, sometimes it will display the Blue Screen of Death.
#38) Microsoft Network Speed Test: A free tool, liked by most users since this provides the most accurate speed. It lets you measure network delay, download, and upload speed. For more details check here #39) Nmap: NMAP is a free open source tool used for network discoveries and security auditing. It is flexible and supports multiple platforms.
Alternative 2020 Article ➤ 4 Free Tools To Test RAM Memory For Windows, Linux and Mac
- May 05, 2006 Question: Q: Is there stress testing software for the Mac? I am looking for a stress-testing program for OSX. Something that would press a computer to it's limits and make it crash faster, if it's supposed to crash intermittently.
- Nov 14, 2019 MemTest86 is great, but it has an outdated UI and Karhu’s RAM Test is a paid-only software. In that case, MemTest64 is a perfect tool that lets you stress test RAM without spending a dime or navigating through the bootable mess. Simply put, MemTest64 is a modern and lightweight program that comes with a GUI interface and is amply capable to.
The only way to know if your GPU’s memory is fault is to perform a stress test on the GPU memory quickly and thoroughly! Below are 5 very useful tools to stress test your GPU.
↓ 01 – Video Memory stress Test 40 Test Free
Video Memory Stress Test is a small application that is free for home use (but paid for commercial use) and is designed to test the RAM on your video card. Similar to Memtest86+, it will read and write data to each part of the video cards RAM and log any errors found. This test allow you to completely test your video RAM (accessible to DirectX). The best way to check stability after overclocking ;)
↓ 02 – OCCT Free Pro
OCCT is a stability checking tool, free for personal use. It comes with 4 built-in test aimed at testing CPUs, GPUs and Power supplies. OCCT also monitors in temperatures, voltages and fan speed, as well as system constants such as CPU Usage, Memory Usage and FPS (if testing in 3d).
↓ 03 – GpuMemTest nVidia Only
GpuMemTest is suitable for anyone who wants to verify that their hardware is not faulty. GpuMemTest is suitable for overclockers (only on nVidia GPUs!) who want to quickly determine the highest stable memory frequency. We recommend setting the memory frequency to be no higher than 90% of the highest stable frequency. Please do not use GpuMemTest for overclocking on AMD GPUs, as it might fail to detect errors. GpuMemTest is suitable for CUDA and OpenCL programmers, because having confidence in hardware is necessary for serious application development.
Gpu Stress Test Mac
↓ 04 – FurMark OpenGL
FurMark is a very intensive OpenGL benchmark that uses fur rendering algorithms to measure the performance of the graphics card. Fur rendering is especially adapted to overheat the GPU and that’s why FurMark is also a perfect stability and stress test tool (also called GPU burner) for the graphics card.
↓ 05 – GpuTest Linux Windows macOS
Mac Os Software Compatibility
GpuTest is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux and Max OS X) GPU stress test and OpenGL benchmark. GpuTest comes with several GPU tests including some popular ones from Windows’world (FurMark or TessMark). The number of GPU tests grows with the new versions of the tool. The foolowing tests are available in the latest version:
- FurMark based stress test (OpenGL 2.1 or 3.2).
- TessMark based tessellation test (OpenGL 4.0).
- GiMark: geometry instancing test (OpenGL 3.3).
- PixMark Piano pixel shader test (OpenGL 2.1 or 3.2).
- PixMark Volplosion pixel shader test (OpenGL 2.1 or 3.2).
- Plot3D vertex shader test (OpenGL 2.1 or 3.2).
- Triangle one of the most simple 3D scene ever made… (OpenGL 2.1 or 3.2).
↓ 06 – EVGA OC Scanner X Free For EVGA Cards
Introducing EVGA OC Scanner X, the essential utility for any EVGA GeForce card. This application allows you to take your card to the limit with exclusive built-in artifact scanning, benchmarking tools, GPU vitals information, CPU burn in utility and built-in log functionality. Blu ray video player for mac app free. When combined with EVGA Precision X, your GeForce overclocking experience is complete!
↓ 07 – FurMark ROG Edition Free For Asus Cards
Mac Os Software Versions
FurMark ROG Edition is a heavily revamped version for ASUS of the popular FurMark tool. FurMark ROG Edition comes with modern stress-tests and artifact scanner based on OpenGL and Vulkan. Thanks to FurMark ROG Edition, you can push your graphics card to the limits to test stability and thermal performance.
↓ 08 – MSI Kombustor Free For MSI Cards
MSI Kombustor is MSI’s exclusive burn-in benchmarking tool based on the well-known FurMark software. This program is specifically designed to push your graphics card to the limits to test stability and thermal performance. Kombustor supports cutting edge 3D APIs such as OpenGL or Vulkan.

You must be kidding right?
I mean it happens, but it's very very rare and it most likely has to do with a third party software or some sort of hardware problem.
If your thinking about overloading the CPU's to make Mac OS X crash I don't think it can be done. I've run three hundred programs at once and each took their time waiting for their turn at the CPU's and the apps themselves crashed waiting so long. So that's not going to work.
Perhaps you better tell us a bit more detail what your looking for.
