Attention: ONLY official CPU-Z version for screenshot verification

As most of you already know, there are different utilities on the market that give you the exact same information as CPU-Z, but are in fact different programs from the official CPU-Z version. For screenshot verification, we insist on using the official CPU-Z only. If you want to add programs such as the Evga E-LEET Utility in your screenshot, you can do so as long as there’s an official CPU-Z present.
Also, we have found out that people are modifying CPU-Z to add their own or team name to the CPU-Z utility: again, you can use it as an extra, but do it next to the official CPU-Z version.

Belgium Massman says:

The staff is currently discussing applying the same rule to unofficial GPU-Z variants. Similar to the CPU-Z rule, the biggest problem is not knowing if a modified application is showing correct frequencies. Also, only using the official version keeps things as uniform as possible, making things much more transparent and clear for everyone.

Please let us know your opinion :)

K404 says:

Yea, I think it's a good idea. If the reputation of CPU-Z and GPu-Z is open for abuse, everyones verification is suddenly meaningless

Greece junior-21- says:

totally agree ;)

Italy Iron says:

Is this problem based on issues already happened about third party software which did not display correct infos, or it's a pro-active solution?

Christian Ney says:

For old gpu we need powerstrip or rivatuner, gpuz doesn't work or doesn't reconize the card

Argentina Sweet says:

Fully agree :)

United States OptyTrooper says:

Official only.

Belgium Teemto says:

Official only here as well.

Germany BenchBros says:

Old Hardware have problems with GPUz. What about the nasty ROG CPUz? Is this "official" enough for the rules?

Christian Ney says:

Why not ?
it's the official one but with a different skin

Germany Hyperhorn says:

Official CPU-Z is available here: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
If your favored tool with CPU-Z-engine is only available somewhere else, it's not official. If modified CPU-Z versions with team logos are not allowed, why should Hwbot allow the ROG-version?

United States slngsht says:

This.

Maybe require an alternative such as Powerstrip or Everest plus device manager when GPU-Z doesn't work

And Official cpu-z only from cpuid site should be allowed, unless there is a competition and people are required to use one certain varied version just for that

Christian Ney says:

yep true, I forgot to write Everest

Belgium Massman says:

That's not really official. It's in the same category like the E-Leet tool from Evga, i think.

Official version is the one you can download from cpuid.com

Christian Ney says:

ok then everything is clear.

Agree with official cpuz and official gpuz and alternative tools for old vga (like rivatuner, powerstrip and everest).

Now I can report all submissions made with ROG-CPUZ and E-Leet tool :D

You can't get the 1.57.1 version from cpuid.com at the moment, is it legal to use that one ?

No more ROG-gay CPU-z? yaaay!

Rog CPUz created by cpuid. You also can download from cpuid as well.

Belgium Massman says:

Wow, people are pretty unanimous about this. I would've guessed at least some people would ask for the unofficial/skinned versions.

Why not? I was happy massman has a logo on CPUZ if cpuid really want to help you released special version on the cpuid official website.

Is eleet on the cpuid official website? But rog CPUZ.

Belgium Massman says:

??

I see nothing wrong with skinned versions produced by the cpuid official website.

United States Gautam says:

The ROG version looks cool, that's what's important.

Eeky NoX says:

I don't bother, only the 1.57.1 gives me the real vCore on my B3 :p Skinned versions are official nothing to complain about, I don't see the point...

United Kingdom \/ENDE][A says:

Wow, i thought that rule was already in place. Surely the ROG version is official its on the cpuid website.

United States Hondacity says:

you guys just don't like asus :P

United States Bobnova says:

Official only, obviously old cards that GPUz doesn't support need something else. If CPUID has the ROG version on their website and it's up to date I see no reason why it couldn't be used.

United States Gunslinger says:

Gautam said: The ROG version looks cool, that's what's important.


Not only looks cool, it helped me achieve a .3 higher bclock on my SB. (almost certain)

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

The ROG version may look dumb (IMO), but I see no reason why it shouldn't be allowed.

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

Massman, about the ROG CPU-Z: http://www.cpuid.com/news/40-rog_cpu_z.html

Bulgaria I.nfraR.ed says:

It is official, but I don't like it. The clean cpuz is so much easier to read...

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

OMFG. TaPaKaH has already updated his gay list in the signature :D And I fully agree with him.

FoX [OCXLAB.ES] says:

I like it!

Is from official site xD

Finland SF3D says:

Keep your personal hate off from CPU-Z. The ROG version is made by CPU-Z and source code is not modified. That should be enough for everyone. Same story goes with the GPU-Z ROG version. I don't know why those versions irritate so many people and I do not see them any harder to read really.

Canada Vinster says:

I prefer the blan version, I find it easier to read myself.. that is my only reason. I find I have to focus my eyes to see the numbers... I tried it when it first came out, but I didn't use it long.

Norway knopflerbruce says:

ROG CPUZ version is approved by CPUID => official version => allowed

Greece sofos1990 says:

Changing the interface has no effect on clocks. That's my thought. The ROG version is created and is approved from CPUID. I like it better than the classic interface :D

Indonesia Hazzan says:

during still give the correct info about the clock That not big deal ... Changing the interface has no effect on clocks ... just skinned and We Can download from www.cpuid.com ROG CPU Z and GPU Z very cool....

Belgium HybridChiller says:

just keep the offical Cpuz and GpuZ as mandatory in screenshots.

(also the rog version)

Belgium Massman says:

Bump. Just a reminder: the only allowed tools are the CPU-Z and GPU-Z versions that you can download from the developer's page, being http://cpuid.com/ and http://techpowerup.com. Nothing else :).
