Magarena as benchmark/burn-in tool?

Postby Huggybaby » 30 Dec 2016, 19:01

Hello all,

I've been building a new PC for a few months. It runs on air and is undervolted. The goal is to get it so that no matter what I run, the fans will never spin up past idle. And I'm almost there. :) I'll have to de-lid my CPU ultimately.

For stress testing I use whatever the community says not to. For example, a certain version of Prime95 is said to be unrealistically heat-producing for the CPU. The interesting thing is that Magarena will cause my fans to spin even more than that version of Prime95!

So it would be neat to have a one click benchmark/burn-in tool using the Magarena engine. I could adjust the AI level etc. to accomplish similar but that is not a one-click solution.

I appreciate any ideas.

Thanks,

HB

Then how about a shortcut with some command-line switches?

How about using the 'deckstrcal' mode as described by @melvin in this post?

edit: here is the arguments I use in my ide which are slightly different from those described in the above link. The thing to note is that you do not need to specify a deck, Magarena will automatically generate random decks to use.
--seed 1423967837 --ai1 MMABC --str1 1 --ai2 MCTS --str2 1 --life 4 --games 1 --repeat 1
Also, I think you will need to make sure you use the Monte carlo AI (MCTS) since this definitely uses all available multi-cores and will max out cpu usage.
