When installing this software, make sure you uncheck the toolbar installation request.

CPU Speed Professional has a pretty interface with 3D “CPU-speedometer” appearance.

    How about using Windows experience Index? I think these kinds of software you’ve written about is using for overclocking.
    P.S. Can you write somethings about overclocking? :p (I’m a PURE NOOB.) :D

    • Travis Brice

      Thanks for your feedback, Hank
      Great advice! I will write something about overclocking on my next post.

      btw, I think it’s lie if you’re a pure noob at overclocking. I bet you’re a computer master :p

    One of the best performance test for the processor, memory and even graphic card is OCCT Perestroika. It is not for pure beginners. For any overclocker out there is a must have.

      It’s look like a great software. Thanks for pointing this out, Nenad. I’ll review the software and publish it on spyontech soon. Great information!
