The main window of the software is divided into several main areas:


* Yellow - Displays the various types of tests that can be performed with the software.

* Blue - Displays the selected test information such as: time, test type of test, and amount of memory usage from test mode in the same test. As well as the ON and OFF buttons of the test.

* Violet - Displays the amount of time remaining for the test and the number of utilization percentages (processor state) at that moment.

* Orange - Displays up-to-date information about system components, CPU type, (Motherboard) and monitoring (Monitoring tab).

* Green - displays an explanation of each test and different tips for the user.

Types of tests:

CPU: OCCT - A stress test for a processor that also examines some of the memory (depending on what you choose).

CPU: LINPACK - Test the CPU effort, this test is more agressive, since it adopts the system too much.

In each test you can choose between three test modes:

Auto 1h = 1 hour test.

Infinite = Loop of the same test, the test will never end until you stop it.
