    Delivered precisely there for the first time an iMac 27 "5K on my desk :)

    Now I would like the iMac some test subjects wants to see if it for the coming of years under several stressful moments it can hold its own.

    Personally, I had already found the following software to stress the iMac once quite!
    I wanted to know if there beyond the ones I've found there are interesting tools are:

    TGPro: https://www.tunabellysoftware.com/tgpro/
    Keep your Mac cool. Control fan speeds, monitor temperatures and find faulty sensors.

    Istat Menus: https://bjango.com/mac/istatmenus/
    Monitors CPU & GPU, Memory, Network, Disk usage and activity, Sensors

    Cpusetter: http://www.whatroute.net/cpusetter.html
    It can ook enable / disable hyperthreading.

    Prime95: to stress the CPU!

    For me, I just use it as I normally would. I think its been a solid 15, maybe even 20 years when I stress tested a brand new computer. I think the reliability level of the components are now such that if you use it the way you expect too and find no problems you are in the clear :)
