    Previous version failed to load due to beta expiration. This version fixed the issue perfectly. I've been using this tool to identify chip-set components and verify CPU speed scaling in my Intel i7 laptop. Regarding the previous poster, though I dislike programs that bundle the Ask Toolbar as much as anyone, unselecting the checkbox during setup DID stop the toolbar from being installed in my case.

    CPU-Z its a great program.
    But only 2 stars because it comes w/ AskToolbar and even when you deselect it at installation time, it would install no matter what you selected and then there is no uninstall...

    CPU-Z is great. I'll stick with the ZIPed packaged, however. The installer appears to contain Ask.com garbage. I didn't even install using the installer once I saw Ask.com junk try to access the web. I killed installation and went and grabbed the ZIP download instead. It's my belief that the installer was created in order to bundle the Ask.com trash with CPU-Z. As long as they still allow us to download the ZIP archive of the actual files I will be happy. If they switch to just an installer with bundled garbage then I'll be very disappointed.

    Why on earth have they given it an installer?
    The whole point of it (for me) was that it was portable and could be used to analyse core system components when diagnosing faults.

    They've kept the version without though, so that's all good.

    This version (1.40.5) is still buggy. It shows wrong info in the SPD tab about my memory.
    My memory modules are in Slot 1 and 3, and Slot 2 and 4 are empty.
    CPU-Z, since version 1.37 (1.36 was the last good one) erroneously shows Slots 1 and 2 with memory and Slots 3 and 4 empty.
    I wrote the software writer long time ago about this error, in October 2006 when version 1.37 was released.

    I've been using CPU-Z for years. It's one utility that is nearly indispensable. I'm glad it works under Vista 32 & 64 (I tried under both).

    One change I would like to see is the ability to read core voltages accurately for the C2D processors. And although load time has improved, I wish it would load faster.

    My thanks to Franck Delattre (author) for this excellent program!

    Reviewing 1.40 (May 2, 2007)

    Works great. Most people won't need it but some people need to identify their CPU or RAM.

    About RAM SLOTS:
    I'm not sure there is an error as reported. RAM is sometimes grouped in pairs. You may see 4 physical slots left to right. Often people will have 2 slots filled such as #1 and #3. Since the first pair is grouped in this manner people might say Slot #1 and Slot #2 even though this is not physically how it's layed out.

    I'm not clear am I?

    Okay, Motherboard A could choose to group each PAIR physically next to each other and Motherboard B could choose to split up the groups but from the software's point of view everything looks the same. The wiring might be exactly the same but the SLOTS are just organized differently.

    Anyway, good program.

    v1.36 removes HTML Report from the tools section of the About tab. Also, changes to the Cache tab have been made with things added and removed. I also find it gives different readings of my L2 cache associativity. 1.35 says 8-way and 1.36 says 6-way. Not sure if this is a fix or error? In some ways I prefer 1.35 over this and it does take noticeably longer to load also!

    If you are looking for a new computer, I highly recommend buying a motherboard such as Gigabyte is now offering that has five separate CPU frequency/power loads.
    I used this program when I bought my computer to verify my Athlon 64 was using the Venice core and to verify that Cool 'n Quiet was working.
    Surprisingly other software including Gigabyte's own did not show the proper voltage and frequency of my CPU like CPU-Z did.

    No idea if this is useful. I don't care :-) I

    This utility violates one of the most basic GUI
    rules: Ctrl+TAB does not cycle through the 6 tabs!

    Instead, Ctrl+TAB jumps from [OK] to [Cancel].

    Please fix this if you would like this to be used
    by power users and not only mouse-clickers.

    I know my rating is drastic, but programmes should
    get the message that full keyboard support is a
    MUST in GUI apps. I use Ctrl+TAB exclusively in
    similar dialogs and find it humiliating to reach
    for the mouse on such occasions.

    A blue font is a specific feature of CBId. An other of CPU-Z decided to rip off it :) After he added an ability to adjust a color via ini-file ;) Now we see CPU-Z is not able to compete with CBId well, because the Brain shows much better and more detailed info for the latest AMD64 processors. Maybe therefore a Frenchman releases new versions more often, improving GUI. But Mr. Delattre is simply burnishing his tool, there is no any new additions. Besides, version 1.25 is lunched more long that previews version. I give CPU-Z 1.25 2 marks!

    Used by tomshardware.com for examples, must be pretty good...the only CPU ID program that seems to work on all X86 or modern 64 bit processors. More details than others, too. For mobo feature identifications, benchmarks, and other system information, though, I recommend SiSoft Sandra.

    Nice, works well, and I prefer it (slightly) over WCPUID. I like the fact that it displays the core voltage, and core speed, both dynamically. CPU-Z takes a few seconds to load, and I wish it had a splash screen or something during that time (though I normally despise splash screens, they're nice for slow-loading applications).

    Does what it advertises, properly detected information on about 10 computers... properly picked up the CPU, chipset and RAM info on my Centrino laptop... No flaws or bugs noticed.

    Great app, but it still gives the following error when run from a network share (from WinXP-pro/2K/NT): "Driver Error - An error occured when opening the driver. CPU-Z will launch but all information won't be available."

    It works fine if run from the local hard drive. I reported this bug for each of the last few releases, and again today for the latest release.

    Good software, does what it says. Didnt crash my XP box. It recognized my SIS645 chipset with no problem.
    The only reason it didnt get more than 3 stars; It told me I have sideband addressing enabled, but I do not.
    Keep up the good work guys

    This program still takes 10 seconds to load using Win2k. If 1.20b does the same thing I'll give the program 1 star. All but one version prior to 1.19a worked fine.

    This program STILL takes almost 10 seconds to load on MY computer. It shouldn't take 10 seconds to collect and display information on a computer. One version prior to 1.9b was slow; all the rest were fine. I am using Win2K. WCPUID loads instantly. If the next version is slow, I'll give the program 2 stars.

    Reviewing 1.19b (Sep 9, 2003)

    Previous versions loaded quickly. This version takes at least 10 seconds to load. All I can see that's different is the CPU freq. and voltage update in real time and all memory modules now show for nForce boards. He needs to fix the start up time.

    CPU-Z *was* a nice program until Ver. 1.9. Now it's useless. It shows my CPU identity as incorrect, and my mhz as 4235684321. Man, I wish! They'll fix it in a day or 2. I can wait that long. :-)

    Excellent free little program...

    I've used it on many systems, and aside from a brief pause at startup on some systems, it works great - the built-in ability to export data to TXT file is wonderful.

    Wouldn't even run....CRASHED upon startup. Win2k (SP4).

    I'll go ahead and give it a 3 anyway because the screenshot looks good and others comments seem to indicate that it at least does what it suppose to.....when it runs.

    Very much like WCPUID by H.Oda, nice. Gives me more memory information than WCPUID but it says I have side band addressing enabled; I don't. Has a nice layout to it. I give it a 4.51 rounded up to a 5. :o)
