Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. We went with an Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor and a Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H motherboard for testing since they are the latest and greatest available.
Our CyberPowerPC Zeus Thunder 2500SE Features:
The Intel Z77 platform that we used to test the Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP and Spory VLP memory kits was running the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard with BIOS F6 that came out on 4/26/2012. The processor was an Intel Core i7-3770K that was overclocked from 3.50GHz to 4.50GHz. This 1GHz overclocked was achieved by changing the CPU multiplier from x35.0 to x45.0 and raising the CPU Voltage to 1.250V.
Let’s get on to the testing!
