OCCT turns 20
The OCCT is a stability and stress tool for PCs. It is a full toolbox for testing of CPUs, GPUs, system memory, graphics memory and even power supplies. Users who have just bought their new PC, overclockers or simply those who need to figure out why their system not working properly, will find all the necessary features in one free tool. Advanced users, those who need more features or longer stress tests (longer than 1 hour), will have to pay for the Advanced edition.
The latest 12.0 version brings a 70% rewritten code of the application, a new refresh for the user interface and features like GPU certification (only for paid users). The developer is still developing a version for the Linux operating system, which should no doubt be an important update.

What is important to report is that OCCT tuns 20 this year. The first version was released in 2003 and has been developed by the same developer ever since.
