good benchmarking utilities?

by hcstreetriding / December 12, 2006 6:09 PM PST

Hello, Im doing some over clocking and i was just wandering if i could get a few pointers on good benchmarking programs. Ive read a lot a bout 3dmark05 or 06, cant remember, for gpu testing. What are some good ones for memory and cpu tests? and also maybe something for stability tests after i reach some decent over clocks? Replies and links to download are greatly appreciated!!! thank you!!

But if you look at tomshardware.com you can see what they use. Also CNET REVIEWS on laptops and you see what they use.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
