    Yep, Works for me! I expect a little pat on the back as I sent them a pretty lengthy bug report about Win8. Thanks all!

    Looks like CPU-Z is fixed but Speccy still doesn't work for me on the machines it wasn't working on before.

    cheers

    Both CPU-Z 1.60.1 and Hardware Monitor 1.19 freeze the system on Windows 8 Release Preview for me.

    Huh. I just tried CPU-Z version 1.60.1 (x64) on my ASUS P8Z77 Deluxe with IVY bridge and RP and it worked without any hangups. Make SURE you are using 1.60.1, 1.60 was the version that locked up. If if still fails, go to OpenMonitor until they release a CPU-Z version that works for you. Check your BIOS updates too, they are coming thick and fast for ASUS Z77 boards...

    Both CPU-Z 1.60.1.x64 and CPUID Hardware Monitor 1.19 are working fine for me with Windows 8 Release Preview. (ASUS P8P67-M)
    But 3DMark06 freezes my system. (3DMark11 and Heaven work fine)

I'm wondering if anyone has tried ToolWiz Time Freeze or Time Machine on W8? It looks interesting. I'm reading the info for Time Machine but so far I see no mention of GPT. With rollback type stuff my biggest fear is that the rollback software will hose my system rather than the malware. :)
