LinX is described as 'graphical interface for Linpack, a benchmark designed to measure CPU performance. Linpack is also a very useful tool for checking the stability of a CPU' and is a Benchmark Tool in the OS & Utilities category. There are nine alternatives to LinX for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Android, Mac and iPhone. The best alternative is AIDA64. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try OCCT or Prime95. Other great apps like LinX are GtkStressTesting (Free, Open Source), 3C Toolbox (Freemium), Linpack Xtreme (Free) and System Stability Tester (Free, Open Source).
AIDA64 is a system information, diagnostics, and auditing application developed by FinalWire Ltd., that runs on Windows, Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Tizen operating systems. It displays detailed information on the components of a computer.
OCCT is an all-in-one stability check & stress test tool. OCCT is great at generating heavy loads on your components ( CPU, GPU, Memory, GPU Memory & Power supply ), and aims at detecting hardware errors or stability issues faster than anything else.
Linpack is a benchmark and the most aggressive stress testing software available today. Best used to test stability of overclocked PCs. Linpack tends to crash unstable PCs in a shorter period of time compared to other stress testing applications.
Super PI is a single threaded benchmark that calculates pi to a specific number of digits. It uses the Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of a program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute pi to 232 digits.
