    A stress-testing application, to be use after booting with a suitable Linux live distro (optical disk/USB), instead of testing with different tools/steps.

    I just accidentally happened to drop a medium sized metal flashlight on the on board GPU heat sink from a close distance of where the computers access panel is opened. Is this alright.
