It has to be the more boring part of this review, but each time we do not include these screenshots of CPU-Z, we receive emails requesting them. So we'll include them as standard, for your reference. Never say we do not listen ;)
Here we can see the QX9770 processor used. At this stage we had energy saving functions still on and as such the processor will clock down to preserve energy.
Ooh, I see that the board is still on an F1 BIOS, the first revision. What's actually pretty cool is that the motherboards has two BIOSes. DualBIOS is a Gigabyte technology that automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed.
CPU-Z is always handy for verifying specifications. Let's see, yep .. all proclaimed caches are there. That is a lot of cache for a processor.
Even more handy, you can always verify your memory frequency and timings, read out SPD (memory profiles) and much more. If interested, you can download CPU-Z here.
