Testing Environment

For our test bed, we chose our Z270 Asus Code with Intel I7 7700K overclocked to 5GHz, we can squeeze a little more out of our well-heeled CPU but 5GHz is pretty substantial and a bit safer than 5.2GHz at the cost of excessive added voltage. We are using Windows 10 Professional with all updates applied and updating disabled and the internet disabled to prevent any background internet communications skewing results.
