Your system can start to show signs of problems due to various reasons. A way to see if it can still live up to expectations is with a dedicated testing utility. LinX is a benchmarking tool that supports Intel and AMD CPUs and aims to test system stability and detect potential hardware errors.

Suitable for beginners and experts alike

In contrast to other similar solutions in the same category, LinX relies on a more user friendly approach, with a very clean interface and intuitive menus that help both beginners and experienced users to take advantage of its features.

Easy configuration process

Designed to solve systems of linear equations, LinX seriously stresses up the computer while it performs a new test, so we recommend you to avoid using the workstation during this period.

The main window of the application allows you to configure the problem size and to decide how many times you wish to run it, as well as to adjust the allocated memory.

There's a settings menu that can be used to configure whether to use 32-bit or 64-bit mode, the number of threads, priority class, data alignment and OS memory.

Prompts you when problems are encountered

LinX also boasts automatic error control, so the test can be automatically stopped once the application detects an error. It supports Intel HyperThreading and is able to import reports generated by Everest and Speedfan.

Light, but sufficient support offered

Although it doesn't include a help file to guide users throughout the entire testing process, LinX still comes with a simple text document that comprises information on every single feature regarding the app, so beginners may have a look in there as well.

To end with

Overall, LinX is a decent tool to assess the stability of your system by performing a set of in-depth test that may reveal hardware errors. It requires little time to get acquainted with what it has to offer and it can provide just the right info in case your system needs repairs or an upgrade.
