CPU-Z and GPU-Z Screenshots
A ton of our readers always e-mail in asking to see CPU-Z and GPU-Z details on these pre-configured systems, so on this page we will be filling it up with screenshots that show off the PC's vital signs.
At an idle state we shocked to see our CyberPowerPC Zeus Thunder 2500 SE to be running at 4700MHz or 4.7GHz! It turns out that CyberPower will overclock your PC either 10% or 20% for free by just asking them. They also offer a 30% or more overclock for $50. This overclock was done by leaving the base clock of 100MHz and cranking the multiplier up to 47. CPU-Z reports the CPU Voltage as being 1.248V at idle. The Intel Turbo stepping modes were disabled due to the overclock, so our system ran full throttle all the time.
CyberPowerPC sent our review system with BIOS version F5 on the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H, which was one version behind when the system was shipped to us. Not too bad as a BIOS is very easy to update these days.
The CyberPower Zeus Thunder 2500 SE has four dual-channel DDR3 memory slots and CyberPowerPC loaded them all up with four 4GB Corsair Vengenace DDR3 1600MHz memory modules. The timings on these modules were set to 9-11-11-29 with a 2T command rate.
Here is a look at the SPD settings programmed into the Corsair DDR3 1600MHz memory modules. You can also see that they carry part number CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9. Notice that the SPD settings for 1600MHz are 9-9-9-24, so we are left to wonder why CyberPowerPC set this system up to run at 9-11-11-29 timings. We do not change any settings on a pre-configured system prior to testing, so we'll leave it be and run it this way.
Here is a GPU-Z 0.6.3 screen shot that shows off the details of the Intel HD 4000 graphics that can be used with the installed Lucid Virtu software. The Intel HD 4000 graphics runs at 650MHz on the core and 800MHz on the memory.
The CyberPowerPC Zeus Thunder 2500 SE comes with a discrete graphics card. The card in our system was the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked. This card is running GeForce 301.42 drivers and has a boost clock of 1121MHz and a memory clock of 1552MHz.
