Heavyload is a free program that offers an interesting way to test your computer's endurance. By pushing your system to the limit, Heavyload will show you how well your PC can handle stress.

The program's interface is cut down to the basics, which makes it easy to navigate. While it only has a few command icons, they're well labeled, and they're all that you need to conduct a successful test. The program's running graph shows your available memory and CPU usage, which comes in handy when using some of Heavyload's other features. There are four different testing options, though the program does a poor job of differentiating them, so we left the default settings in place. Luckily, too, since our CPU usage chart instantly began to skyrocket. By quickly filling your RAM, hard disk, and operating system with test data, Heavyload offers an easy and safe way to simulate conditions that could cause your computer to overheat or crash. It was a bit disappointing that Heavyload just keeps running until it's shut it off manually. We'd also like to see a feature that recreates the elements and time of certain stressful situations. Regardless, this is still a simple and exciting way to test your computer's operational capabilities.

Heavyload is freeware. It comes as a compressed file. This program is practical and simple to operate, and we recommend it.
