PassMark BurnInTest is the computer stability and reliability testing software for Windows and Linux. It is a tool that heavily loads all the major subsystems of a computer with the aim of thoroughly exercising the hardware in a PC in a short period of time.
BurnInTest will bring intermittent or hidden problems to the surface. After a successfully run the PC, you can use it with a much higher level of confidence. Also you can use BurnInTest by overclockers to verify system stability at high clock speeds.
PassMark BurnInTest is a software tool that allows all the major sub-systems of a computer to be simultaneously stress tested for endurance, reliability and stability.
PassMark BurnInTest Features:
- An easy to use point and click interface
- Native 64bit hardware and O/S support
- Online help & PDF manual
- A customer style results certificate

- Assists in PC Troubleshooting and diagnostics.
- The best value professional burn-in tool on the market!
- The hottest, fastest CPU Burn In tool around!
- Avoid delivering D.O.A. (Dead on Arrival) hardware to your customers.
- Dramatically reduce your burn in times with multithreaded simultaneous testing of components.
- Build your image as a supplier of quality systems.
- Avoid costly downtime, system rebuilds and lost data.
- Test the stability of a system after configuration changes or hardware upgrades (critical for overclocking).
The Maximum CPU Temp test in BurnInTest is a vital tool for PC enthusiasts and overclockers looking to verify the reliability and stability of CPU and cooling systems with a maximized heat generation torture test.
BurnInTest can be made into a bootable solution from a USB drive, optical disk or PXE boot (with PassMark WinPE Builder)
- Fixed an issue when running using a key.dat file to register BurnInTest, BurnInTest thought it was running in USB mode when it detected a key.dat and some of the file paths used (eg for pre-configured configs) could be incorrect. There is a now an additional check for running in USB mode
- Changed test selection and duty cycle dialog to show config time and cycles (if less than 15mins) when running in the trial version
- Added max run times (instead of 0 – run forever) to some of the pre-configured tests that were missing them so they work in the trial version
- Management Console, started tracking if connection was successful to prevent extra status messages being sent when connection failed for some reason
- Updated system information library to correct some incorrect CPU cache values being returned
Changes in PassMark BurnInTest 10.0 Build 1003:
- Updated MonitorTest to run as a registered “BurnInTest Plugin” user, will no longer launch in trial mode
- Updated KeyboardTest to run as a registered “BurnInTest Plugin” user, will no longer launch in trial mode
- Changed MonitorTest plugin test to display master screen before the touch screen tests
- After saving a result log from file menu it will now automatically open in the default viewer
- Fixed Monitor/Keyboard tests missing from results list view and Text/HTML reports
- Fixed battery window not displaying a main title, icon or runtime errors correctly when there were no batteries available
- Added webcam, battery, USB devices, RAM information to the system information section of the HTML test certificate
- Changed how optional Disk/USB speeds are reported in the HTML log & certificate, added them as part of the test name instead of in the result summary section
- Increased table sizes in HTML style logs to 800 wide
- USB test, made some changes so cycle lengths are more consistent when cycling USB3 test speeds
Changes in PassMark BurnInTest 10.0 Build 1002:
- Fixed test stop time being reset to 17 minutes in some cases
- 2D GPU RAM test, changed compile settings to avoid a VCTUNTIME140.DLL error
- Previous version config conversions, fixed an issue when converting config files from V8 to V9, bluetooth settings were not being copied correctly
- Previous version config conversions, attempt to convert old 2D lines and bitmaps settings for the 2D test. Other settings (EMC patterns) need to be re-chosen due to the extent of changes to the new per monitor 2D test
- Report Information, fixed “Include test duty cycles” state not being saved and restored correctly when using “Save as defaults”
Changes in PassMark BurnInTest 10.0 Build 1000:
New inventory Comparison lest:
- Compares the current system information to a master list and an error is logged if there any difference
- Comparison can be done at start or end of testing
- The master list is stored as an XML file and can be created from the Inventory tab of the test preferences
New Shared Memory API:
- Added a shared memory block for API style access to BurnlnTest information, test status and temperatures
- The definitions for the shared memory structure and a demo are included in the installer
New 2D GPU RAM test:
- Replaces the Local/All available video memory test. It uses OpenCL and will allocate a large amount of the available video RAM and test it
similar to the system RAM test
- The old test used the deprecated DirectDraw library which could not access greater than 4GB of video memory
New Pref-Configured Tests Tab:
- Added new tab to main user interface so configs can be loaded and run directly from this list. This will display config files that are saved in DocumentsPassMarkBurnlnTestConfigs
- Configs can now have a description and icon assigned to them which will be displayed on this tab
- Config order can be sorted by editing the cfg_order.txt file in DocumentsPassMarkBurnlnTestConfigs
New Battery Tab:
- Added a new tab to the main user interface to display a graph of the battery charge levels during testing
- Added discharge comparison rate selection
- When “main test” option is selected for battery test charge levels will be logged during testing in addition to previous behaviour of
comparing charge level
New KeyboardTest Integration:
- Better integration of KeyboardTest, no longer have to specify a path command line flags to launch as a plugin
- Now has an individual option to enable/disable KeyboardTest in test selections and duty cycle dialog and on dashboard tab
- KeyboardTest files are now included in the BurnlnTest installer
New MonitorTest Integration:
- Better integration of MonitorTest no longer have to specify a path command line flags to launch as a plugin
- Now has an individual option to enable/disable MonitorTest in test selections and duty cycle dialog and on dashboard tab
- MonitorTest files are now included in the BurnlnTest installer

monitors in different configurations
- 2D Test preferences, available monitors will be listed in the list box and a different test pattern can be selected for each one. Note that this order is not the same order as displayed by Windows by using “identify monitors” and the order can change if monitors are added, removed or powered off/on
- Progress tile, only display decimal place when value is less than 100
- Added average read/write speeds to display
- Disk wiping, added option to disk test preferences to format physical drive at end of test (only when running a physical disk test)
- At the end of testing a disk wipe dialog will be displayed with a 20 second countdown to allow it to be cancelled
- Added a preference tab and option to avoid running the test on cards based on a name filter
- Progress tile, changed some text offsets so the error count was displayed on the tile
- Added “Cycle” option to speed selection to cycle between speeds (from Super Speed -> High Speed -> Full Speed)
- Added average disk read/write speeds to logging
- Added USB benchmark read, write and loopback speed to logging

- Post test options, made some changes to “Always display result info” so that it will change the current displayed tab to the results dashboard. If being used in conjunction with “launch an external application and exit” then a message box will be displayed to allow the results dashboard to be seen (this brings it back into how it functions prior to V9 when there was an actual results window displayed at the end of testing).
Test Selection and Duty Cycles:
- Added button and icons to test selection and duty cycle window to allow opening of test preferences at specific test page
- Added list of pre-configured tests on left side of dialog
- Added config description and icon to dialog
- Added temperature checkbox for consistency aid enabling/disabling the test
