    1. yes...unless the psu is too weak for the particular gpu.
    2. no
    3. no...hw-intensive games also stress gpu upto 100% but synthetic softs may draw upto 10-25% more power. its not a problem unless your psu is below recommended level..
    4. no
    5. try afterburner/OCCT etc.....

    Can Afterburner detects artifact,how about combuster?I'm running hd 6670 and c2d with generic psu,is it safe stressing in this system?

    OCCT and one of eVGA's bundled softwares which is similar to furmark, can detect artifacts.

    • Yes "stressing" a GPU is within the normal operation during it's life span. It is MEANT to be stressed.
    • Every chip/GPU has it's own threshold, some will fail early/whereas some will still go strong.
    • But if the GPU is overvolted(OCP- disabled), then yes it'll reduce the expected life span of the GPU. The overvolt will only affect when it's beyond a certain limit for a specific GPU. Cooling is also important here, a card won't necessarily fail if it's under good measures, like WC/good airflow. Say for e.g overclocking reference GTX570 is not a good idea. A card with a poor 4+1phase can't cope with the added levels when it's taken beyond a certain limit.
    • Good side of stressing a GPU? If you are playing games that are GPU intensive, then it's bound to be stressed when the 3D game/app is running. Or if you are a dedicated folder, then certainly YES- it's a good cause for stressing a GPU.
    • There's no best way to stress a GPU. You can be Furmark stable for a given card with OC, but fail when playing actual games like for e.g BF3 which is btw very stringent on the GPU.
    For GPU stressing I would recommend MSI Kombuster/EVGA OC Scanner/OCCT. For a basic guideline, always check your temps if your 3D performance is not satisfying for your card. For current cards, I wouldn't go above 70-75C (load) and always try to have a good PSU. While generic ones will power low profile cards just fine, but they don't really provide clean power/12V being very poor etc etc.

    i mean't kombuster not afterburner lol...as you are running on a generic psu nobody can give you prper surety whether it is safe or not. although c2d/6670 are very efficient & supposed to be run on generic psu's but it depends upon luck. check the amp/watt rating of +12v rail from the stricker of your psu.(that will be overrated surely but u can get a rough idea)

    Stressing is mostly used to test out overclocks. I personnaly use Heaven Benchmark 2.5, Furmark and Kombustor is unrealistic, and newer nvidia cards throttle down when these apps are detected. I reach 82C in Heaven and 77C max with BF3 on the top card, the bottom card is almost always 5C cooler.

    OCing and stressing won't harm anything as long as you maintain boundaries especially when it comes to temps and volts. Other than that if you have a quality PSU then you won't have any issues.

    Judging by the fact you have a generic PSU, I think using torture tests will not be wise.
    Try playing some high-end games, see if you encounter any artifacts.

    No,stressing will't harm ur gpu.Most gpu intensive game use 90-95% of ur gpu and that does't harm ur gpu(it's one kind of stress).But i'll recommend u "dont overclock ur gpu or cpu with that psu" and dont believe those fake ratings written on ur psu.
