    Hi, I have an old unused CPU fan Cooler Master Seidon 120v and on the box its says socket (LGA 2011/1366/1150/1156/775). Now I am planning to build a system with Intel core i3 8100 processor (LGA 1151). I have checked the motherboard H310 and and the CPU fan brackets matches with the...

    Why TDP mismatch between Skylake-X and Ryzen 5

    How is it possible that the stock i7-7800X and Ryzen 5 1600X have the same cores, threads, base and boost clocks but the former has a TDP of 140W and the latter only 95W? That is a massive difference.

    Running 4 RAM sticks on Z170?

    This computer's on the fritz, and it feels fairly long in the tooth, so it's time for an upgrade. Trouble is, I'm looking to have the full 64GB of RAM supported by Skylake, but 2x16GB to begin with. Was told by AsRock that Z170 can't run RAM at it's full rated speed, when using all four...

    B250 + Skylake CPU, DDR4 2400 or not?

    Does DDR4-2400 RAM work on a build with a B250 motherboard and a Skylake (not Kaby Lake) CPU? I've seen conflicting information on this. I'm sure a 200-series or Z-series motherboard is required to support DDR4 2400 RAM speeds with a Kaby Lake processor, and higher RAM speeds work just fine with...

    Need opinions on different DDR4 RAM (choices inside)

    I have four different RAM choices (listed in the poll). Will be using in a Z170/6700k system - mostly for discrete GPU gaming @ 1440p/144hz and video editing/rendering every now and then. Currently leaning towards G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR4 3000, just because it offers the "fastest" RAM speed at $85...

    6700K at 1.15V -- should I bother with offset?

    I am setting up a VR-centric ITX system for a friend and wanted to try undervolting to see if I can reduce temperature under load. I tried various reductions and ended at 1.15 (with level 2 LLC in the AsRock Gaming ITX/AC board and Corsair H90). I've read that using the offset voltage is more...

    Z170 RAM expertise needed (trying to get stability)

    (Please don't invoke the debate about the gains to be found from faster DDR4. I want to focus specifically on getting stability in a speed range of 3200–3600 and need specific, clear, data-driven info. Thanks!) I am setting up a computer system for a friend and bought a 16 GB (2 X 8) EVGA 3200...

Then came Battlefield 1 and the enjoyment of streaming while...
