Stress test hardware before unRAID/Sage install

I mentioned in another thread that I'd be picking up a new (to me) system for Sage/unRAID - that's done and I'm just waiting for delivery now.

Before setting up unRAID, Sage and other containers, I'd really like to stress test the hardware to make sure everything is "good" - memory, CPU, controllers, disks, etc.

Does anyone have any recommendations for the most streamlined way to do this? Perhaps from a single boot disk?

The system I had put together includes the following:

SuperMicro 3U 836TQ-R800B Chassis (16 drive bays)
BPN-SAS-836TQ Direct Attached backplane
X9DRI-LN4F+ Rev 1.20a Motherboard
2x Intel Xeon E5-2650 V2
128GB RAM (8x 16GB 8500R)
2x LSI 9211-8i - connected to the 16 drive bays
Dual Power Supply (800W)

I'll have 2x WD Red 8TB drives and a couple of SSD to test on the system, along with a 16GB Kingston USB stick I bought for the unRAID installation. Other drives are currently installed in other systems and I'll test them there.

Sorry, I had only found tools for Windows.

Memtest is a good one and that comes with the unraid boot drive.

Other than that I'm not sure what you could do short of installing windows and running some standard tests.

I'd ask what the hard core guys on the UNraid forums do. I just installed my hardware and software and hoped for the best. That was a few years ago...

I usually use Memtest86, Prime95 and FurMark. I haven't used this, but supposed to have stress testing tools and more:
