So I'm new to overclocking and just playing around with a few basic settings at the moment (basically multiplier and Vcore).
So my issue is, lets say I set my Vcore at 1.35v and my clock at 5ghz then run either Prime95 or Aida64 my temps stay below 70c but I BSOD. Then I up the Vcore to 1.375...
I'm looking to upgrade my cpu to a newer model, but I know very little about hardware.

Nvidia GeForce 750 ti GPU
8 gb ram
500 gb HDD
I know it's a fairly old rig for the most part, but...
This might be a little long, but it's technically interesting and challenging for those interested.
So I had been using the intel i5 4460 with a Asrock Z87M Pro4 motherboard for a little over 3 years, when out of the blue the display output went blank. On troubleshooting I got it down to a dead...
I recently changed out my AM4 motherboard for a b350 board (Asrock B350 pro 4) as my old one (MSI AB350m gaming pro) doaed, i then put my cpu (R5 1500x) into it, didn't work, so i RMAed it and it was found to be faulty, i bought a new CPU (R5 1600x) and the fans spun up bread boarded, i turned...
I'm planning on buying an egpu with thunderbolt 2 and hook it up on my iMac. So, will an i5-5250u bottleneck a Zotac GTX 1060 6gb Mini over Thunderbolt 2? If so will at least play games such as Overwatch, League of legends, Vampyr and Fortnite at 60 fps medium settings or lower? Also I'm using...

Independent test results for Intel's 8-core i9-9900K are just around the corner, and the general consensus and expectations are that it will put Intel further in the lead with the "world's best gaming processor".
However, like most technology analysts and avid followers of x86 CPU architecture...

I'm wondering if its possible to disable HT-Assist feature on Opteron 6200 series CPU. I've searched around BIOS and around the web but can't find anything.
Reason why I would like to disable it is that Opteron 6200 series CPUs should have 16 MB L3 Cache, however 4MB is reserved for HT-Assist...

I was trying to find some good multiplatform CPU benchmarking programs. I want to compare some CPUs of widely different architectures.
What are your recommendations?

- works on Linuxes (x86 32&64, ARMv6, ARMv7, ARMv8 A32&A64)
Recently there was a thunderstorm in my area. The day before I was on my computer and it was working. I left it on and the power went out a little while after the storm started. I thought it would be no big deal because I've never had any issues with surges in my house and it's hooked up to a...

Hello. This is my FIRST post ever here - or really in any forum.
I just recently finished building my first custom PC and just finished writing, recording my first Electronica Album also.
I assembled an AMD 1950x Threadripper Workstation.
Hey guys, I just started gaming on my PC and I want to start streaming, but OBS is laggy as hell and I know its because of my hardware as when i built it its wasn't for gaming at all. My question is do I have to upgrade both GPU and GPU pr can i get away with just upgrading 1 of the 2.

I can currently stream PUBG on 720 30fps.. but it won’t let me stream fortnite or The Forest at all. Unless it’s on the lowest settings. I have an i5 7400 right now and was wondering if going with a ryzen 5 1600 because of the more cores/threads would be worth it? Or is there another cpu you...

Thanks in advance.
One of my computers does not start anymore. It has a Gigabyte mobo, socket 1156, with a i7-860, 8 GByte RAM. I've tested it w/o connected hard drives, with only one stick of RAM (2GBytes), GPU and Keyboard - the same symptoms as when fully equipped.
When I power up, it works OK for 2 - 3...

I have a Ryzen 5 1600 and with the stock cooler the max OC I can apply is:
3.7 GHz @ 1.28750 Volts. Don't know if it's stable "exactly" because I couldn't run Prime95 for more than 7 minutes as the temperature would exceed 85C. It got through 10 consecutive runs of Cinebench CPU test though...
Hey guys so I have currently an i5 4570 and a GTX 770, the 770 is definitely showing its age at this point so i have been thinking of upgrading to a 1070.

Greetings! Fellow Techs.
"heat sink grill marks" on your AMD Processor.
on the four sides of the processor (plate)
-heat sink marks seems to be a discoloration

-using the stock heat sink fan - the cause of the grill marks.
I originally wanted to buy an i7 8700(non K), but the non availability of cheaper non overclocking motherboards drove me towards Ryzen5
My current choices are i7 3770, or go Ryzen 5 or Wait for Non overclocking motherboards to appear for i7 8700
So, between R5 1600 and i7 3770 which one of...
