MSI afterburner has a vram stress tester? Thats what im lookin for

i dont think so, they were using furmark, which does not test video memory as hard as some of the things in the Atitool/gputool does. those programs can roar through the memory and break an overclock setting that is too high much faster than furmark.

With a furmark test, which is similar to some of the 3D benchmarks , i could have memory set too high overclocked, and eventually have a problem in a game. with Atitool if i survived all of its testing, then a game would survive for hours of playing.
(results will of course vary)
