Wonder if it can read clock settings on 1155 correctly yet. I know my bus speed is neither 109 nor 77.

I had to look up "automatized" to verify that it was a word. :laugh: I only ever see/hear people use "automated."

All boards use different PLLs and BIOSes which cause the problem. Alot of boards do need to be manually added for detection to work right, but I have found clock reporting to be fairly accurate once a board has been added. If your board is not working correctly, you can submit a report to FinalWire, and if you have a paid version, you can nearly almost always expect to get an updated version, just for you. I've submitted many boards now, and every time FinalWire has given me a good version in the end.

How does cpuz do it? They make it seem pretty effortless.

I beleive they use direct CPU detection. It's probably easier for CPU-Z, as it doesn't read data from all over the system like AIDA64 does, which reports a TONNE of stuff.

CPU-Z isn't infalliable either. On some boards I have, it will NEVER work the first time it's started, but the second time it's launched, it works just fine. Voltage detection on CPU-Z is a little whacked too...on Gigabyte 1155 boards, CPU-Z reports IMC volts, not CPU core volts.

Not that that makes either app bad...both need constant updating in order to stay relevant. The Bulldozer launch is the perfect indicator of that...many reviewers didn't even use a properly working version of CPU-Z, because most were not aware that there was a package released just for Bulldozer. We had some showing 8130P as the CPU, while others showed 8110P...
