Although most people dont advise it. I like to use Driver Booster to download all of my drivers. 


I usually stay away from software applications like those because of the bloatware and they make you pay for it.

For those of you that are crazy and like to OC your system, here's a good stress tester



This is meant for stress testing your CPU, if you don't have good cooling on your CPU, you run the risk of destroying your computer.

I take no responsibility if you brick your PC

Idle Master Extended

Useful program for those who want to collect steam cards faster, it idles multiple steam games at once to increase chances of a card drop. 

WARNING DO NOT play any steam games while this is running. VAC will think you are hacking and will possibly ban you.


Steam Cleaner

Installing/uninstalling games on steam leaves residual files that are sometimes hidden. This program finds them and deletes them.
