    Unigine Valley indicates that "can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer". Looking for something that causes the fans to kick in. Synthetic tests are fine for what I'm looking for. Looking for something "legit". Haven't tried GeekBench do the fans kick in for it ?

    Thanks. Cheers !

    Go into your Security settings in System Preferences and allow apps from all developers.

    Yes, UniEngine is fine, just adjust security settings. UniEngine Valley Benchmark is unbelievable.

    Or just right-click (or CTRL-click) on the app en select open.
    You do get another warning, but you can open it then.

    It depends on what you want, for OpenGL, Valley is a pretty good indicator. For OpenCL, Luxmark. However, For synthetic GPU loading, Furmark should be the best.

    On the CPU side, GeekBench.

    Anyway, please make sure you have the correct security setting. Otherwise, you have to download the apps from Appstore (CompuBench CL Desktop Edition / GFXBench 3.0 / NovaBench / etc).
