Editors' Review


Although it has a single purpose, this application couldn't push CPU usage to a continuous 100 percent as promised. CPU 100 doesn't even need an interface. It merely displays a dialog information box with a simple statement and a URL for donations.

Execute CPU 100 and the app does increase CPU usage. However, the load varied considerably during testing and rarely reached 100 percent. Testers also complained that the application often failed to close when requested. Task Manager's End Task command was often the only way to shut down CPU 100.

It's possible CPU 100 could work on some systems. Those with a dire need to see their systems pushed to full load have a small chance CPU 100 will do the trick. There's no monetary risk to trying this application. And it is easy to uninstall.

"useful for system developers"

April 07, 2008  |  By scoupe1992

It's nice to see a new application for testing the capability of cpu cooling solutions. Every processor line seems to generate more and more heat, making it more important to know that you're cooling solution is sufficient to protect your investment under heavy load.


Some people leave reviews for software that they have no business using to begin with. Unfortunately, it's not possible to restrict reviews to just those that actually have the knowledge to use software like this properly and for what the developer intended it for.

Now why in the world would someone want to destroy their PC by doing that. It's more like a viruses and spyware than application. Bunch of Bull.
