As you can see, for this test we use the Core i7 965 Extreme -- we spot that Hyper-Threading is enabled... 8 threads are available to us. Nice. BTW the CPU is in idle and is clocked down.
Hmmm yup! Core i7 965 (Bloomfield) indeed is Nehalem based; the caches.
CPU-Z is so handy, the motherboard is properly recognized and as you can see, we are using the 0224 BIOS compiled February 2011.
The motherboard reads out the memory profiles properly. We have 3x 2048MB OCZ Blade installed in this rig.
We apply standard JEDEC timings for our default baseline tests with a clock frequency of 1333 MHz, CAS 7 was automatically configured by the motherboard, so we'll use this for our baseline memory settings.
