    Question When overclocking I'm having to set voltage high but temps are still low...

    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...

    "Eco-friendly" overclocking of Ryzen 1700?

    Is there potential for an "eco-friendly", near-stock-voltage overclock of a Ryzen 1700 that won't cause a loss of single-threaded performance? I'd like to maintain low idle power usage AND keep load power reasonable. What is "reasonable" to me? Generally no higher than the stock 1800X (about...

    Will Celeron G3900 work with OC memory on a Z270 motherboard?

    I would like to use Celeron G3900 with a Z270 motherboard. The motherboard says it supports "DDR4-4133+(OC) Memory", but the CPU says it only supports DDR4-1866/2133. Will OC memory be able to work on OC speeds or not? If not, then what is the cheapest Intel 6th Gen CPU I can use? Am I limited...

    Tools like SetFSB for Windows 8.1

    I have a proprietary motherboard which means I can't overclock through BIOS, back on Windows 7, I used SetFSB to overclock to 3GHz. Unfortunately on 7, my graphics drivers crashed, so I upgraded to 10. 10 ran awfully so I then went to 8.1. Unfortunately, SetFSB doesn't work on Windows 8.1, so...

    Hi All! I did a new build about a month ago and I have noticed some unusually high temperatures with my 7700K. I originally had a Hyper 212 cooler on my build, but after seeing the temps I decided that maybe it wasn't cutting it so I switched to a Corsair Hydro H80i v2. However the temps are...

    What are some readily available x79 boards that support Ivy Bridge Server Chip 4-12 core overclocking? Availability in the US required only. Ebay is fine. I'm getting tired of waiting for Skylake HEDT and all this Zen talk is getting me hankering for an upgrade from my 3570k to MOAR COARS. I...

    i5-4690k & MSI H81-P33, about how much is the board suitable for OC?

    Hi. Bear in mind that the board is not H81M but H81-P33:) About how much is it suitable to OC the 4690k? I did 4.3 GHz 1.2Vcore with this board but didn't try to push it further. 1.2V seems is bit too much for me at 4.3 GHz, don't you think? When OCing I only raised Voltage of core and uncore...

    Do NVMe SSDs Require Cooling?

    Typically components do not unless OC'd. I am not aware of the enthusiast arena OC'ing SSD's yet (not the bulk anyway), which leads me to suspect that there is no need to overclock them for normal use. But would an NVMe SSD ever have to thottleback with normal use does anyone know? If...

    Should AMD spin off high-level SIMD to a separate chip?

    Consider the following: 1) CPUs used to do the work of GPUs. We can see from the evolution of the discreet GPU the advantages of having them separate: a) nimbleness – upgrade GPU without having to upgrade CPU/board b) more chip space – more space to use for transistors from having separate...
