Configuration file (cpuz.ini)
-----------------------------The configuration file must be named cpuz.ini and be present at the same directo
ry level
as cpuz.exe. It contains the following :
- TextFontName : Font used for the information boxes.
- TextFontSize : Size of the font used for the information boxes.
- TextFontColor : Color of the font used for the information boxes. Value is exp
ressed in hexadecimal, and consists in a classic Red/Green/Blue color code : RRG
- LabelFontName : Font used for the label boxes.
- LabelFontSize : Size of the font used for the label boxes.
- Sensor : Set to OFF (or 0) disables sensor chip detection and voltages measure
ment. 1 to enable.
- PCI : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the PCI information. This disables chipset, S
PD and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information. 1 to enable.
- MaxPCIBus : Sets the maximum PCI bus to scan. Default value is 256.
- DMI : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the DMI (Desktop Management Interface) inform
ation. This concerns BIOS vendor and version, motherboard vendor and revision. 1
to enable.
- SMBus : Set to OFF (or 0) disables SMBus information : SPD, and, depending on
the hardware, sensoring information. 1 to enable.
- Display : Set to OFF (or 0) disables the video card information reported in th
e validator. 1 to enable.
- ShowDutyCycles : Set to 1, switches the alternate clock computation method bas
ed on duty cycles. 0 to disable.
- UseDisplayAPI : Set to 1, uses the display driver to read the display adapters
