Test System Setup






Special thanks to ASUS, NZXT, and Kingston for their support!


The test setup is typical for a workstation setup. The power supply used in these test is much higher wattage than needed for these tests.


The CPU used in these tests is an Intel Core i7 4771 @ 3.5GHz. We also showed a Xeon processor E3-1285 v3 (8M cache and 3.60GHz) to use as a comparison in performance. The memory installed is 32 GB of Kingston CL11 1600MHz ECC RAM.


For all tests that we ran, we used optimized BIOS settings for performance.




This is the CPUz screen showing the various stats of the i7 4771. As you can see, this CPU has a Max TDP of 84 watts, and core voltage of 1.005V, which means this CPU runs nice and cool under low voltage.


In some of our tests that use graphics, we used a 690gtx that we had in the lab.
