How to Use CPU-Z that tells You Everything about Hardware & Performance

Do you want to know your processor serial number, core temperature, ram speed of your laptop? Do you want to overclock a cpu or perform testing? or do you want to know about processor benchmark?

If yes, CPU-Z tells you everything if you know how to use it so let’s get started…

What is CPU-Z?

CPU-Z is a french developed freeware system information application that gathers and display data  about CPU, motherboard, and memory on some of the main devices of your system.

Overall, it includes

  • Processor name and number, codename, process, package, cache levels.
  • Mainboard and chipset.
  • Memory type, size, timings, and module specifications (SPD).
  • Real time measurement of each core’s internal frequency, memory frequency.

Recently Cpuid launched CPU-Z latest Version 1.93 and available to download for Windows 8/8.1/10.

Note: CPU-Z don’t tell about your cpu operating temperature. If you want, you may use HWMonitor for checking our your cpu temperature.

Is CPU-Z Safe?

Absolutely, CPU-Z is 100% safe to use but make sure you download it from official website. CPU-Z may comes with the malware incase you will download it from somewhere else such as filehorse.

How to Download and Install CPU-Z on your Laptop?

If you have any problem in downloading CPU-Z, Visit official website and watch the tutorials given below:

Once you will download the latest CPU-Z version, you will have “Read Me.txt” file to read where you will get complete documentation about CPU-Z.

How to Use CPU-Z to Check Everything about Your CPU, Motherboard and Memory?

CPU Caches Mainboard Memory SPD Graphics Bench About

If you check, there is tab for everything. You just need to click on “Caches”, “Mainboard”, Memory, SPD, graphics etc.

You may “Validate” all the information by just clicking on validation option and you will get all information online such as clock speed, RAM etc just like:

Do you want to check maximum turbo speed without using CPU-Z? Yes, it’s so easy to do.

Now, it’s time to see – how could we make use of it? How could we make actual benefit of CPU-Z application? it’s time to explore more…

Click on “Tools” below where you can check for driver updates, clock speed, timers, save reports, save BIOS or get CPU-Z for Windows 95 and Android.

How to Check RAM speed in CPU-Z?

As you can see, I had NB frequency of 2594.7 Mhz DRAM (Dynamic Random Acess Memory) frequency is 798.4 Mhz, we will double it and that will become 1596.8. so the RAM speed will be 1600.

How to Overclock a CPU with or without using CPU-Z?

How to Rundown or Stress Testing an Overclock using CPU-Z

As you could see in video, CPU percentage utilization was 6% to 7% before “Stressing CPU” and once we clicked on “Bench > Stress CPU”, CPU utilization increased upto 92%- 93%- 94% and if you don’t have stable cpu or even, if run it for a very long term, you gonna break your CPU.

Do you want to optimize Clock speed without using CPU-Z?

Yes, if you want to optimize your clock speed, if you want to overlock, here is an ultimate tutorial:


CPU-Z is 100% legal and safe to use! Please let us know if this article helped you or not? If yes, how? and if no, what else missed in this article?

looking forward to hear from you 🙂
