    I have just taken delivery of a new pc custom assembled from my specs, and I would like to test it thoroughly.
    So far I have tested the RAM with Memtest86+ and the HDs with Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics.
    I plan to run CPU burn as a CPU stability test.
    Is there any other hardware test you'd reccommend?

    newbino,
    Not a hardware test per se, however, since you have a brand new PC, run WinAudit Freeware v2.27, a PC Audit & Inventory software and save the results for later comparisons.
