    You need to adjust the duty cycle settings, and set the CPU test to 100%, if you want 100% CPU load.

    How to full load a 64 bit processor?

    Until today I have only run the burnin test software on a 32 bit processor.

    On these the standard test seems to easily put the processsor at 95%+ loading.

    Today I tried it on a friends new laptop which is 64 bit, 4 core and runing Windows 7.

    I didn't have long to try different options but nothing I tried could get the CPU loading even up to the 70% mark.

    My question is whether this is a limitation of the software, or my knowledge of how to use it? If the later I would appreciate suggestions.
