From v4.38
Added support for [SIVDEF.ini] which can be used to provide defaults for configuration parameters that are not already present in the registry. By default SIV will save these defaults to the registry unless -NOSIVREG is selected. Note that when SIV is run from a DVD/CD or Removable Drive (USB Flash Drive) -NOSIVREG is the default.

Thanks Wolfghost and red-ray: added the nosivreg bit to the entry.

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

@billon
Have you checked the download links for BitComet version 1.44?
I get "404 Not Found" both for the archive and the installer.

IntelBurnTest v2.54

webfork on 10 Dec 2016
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Jul 2012
  • Suggested by Specular

IntelBurnTest allows CPU benchmarking and stability tests under a heavy load. The program is commonly used by the overclocking community to measure CPU temperature when used in conjunction with a separate temperature monitoring program.

NOTE: The program will stress the CPU, memory, and north bridge to their, meaning the machine will run unusually hot. Make sure your PC is properly cooled and ventilated before use. Additionally, setting the "times to run" past 20 doesn't provide better results.

The program is a front-end for the CPU stress testing utility Intel Linpack.
