Our Test System

We carefully set this monster into one of our test beds and hooked it up to our 30″ test monitor. This test system is running a Intel i5-2500k  ‘Sandy Bridge’ quad core processor at stock 3.3 GHz, 4GB of Corsair Dominator 1600 MHz memory, a 700 Watt OCZ PSU, an OCZ 100GB Vertex Limited Edition SATA II SSD primary drive  running Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit  SP1 with all updates applied.  We used the latest Forceware 280.26 WHQL drivers for all GPU testing on the ASUS GTX 570 DirectCI II ENGTX570.
