During the testing phase I ran several tests with the supplied software and hardware diagnostic tools to see what kind of results I would get with my overclocked system. I wanted to see if the PC Doctor Service center 6 would show me any issues that my system may be hiding that would cause instability or errors.

The first Item I tested was the the PCI post card. After powering down the system I inserted it into an open PCI slot. After booting the computer up the PCI post card came alive and started running the post routine. All of the LED's were lit indicating I had the correct power sources connected to the motherboard and a successful post sequence.
The power supply tester actually diagnosed an issue with a power supply I had been having issues with. Simply plug the harness that is being tested into the appropriate socket and turn on the power supply to get the results. Lit up means no issue but if there is no light where there should be theres a problem that requires further investigation.
In the low level testing I decided to see if the processor in this build has any issues. Additionally a twenty minute load test was run to put the maximum load test on the system.
In the PC Doctor windows testing I built a test script and ran it looking for issues. I was pleased to see that none were found.
