So I ended up getting the redux with 140mm round frame it have 1500rpm so it faster than the brown model it only goes to 1200 rpm or...

    Well it depends on per laptop as some people just overload the older dual core cpu due to background services like av and bloatware that just eat cpu cycle for breakfast. Also just got the notice from dhl that the motherboard arrived in ireland cant wait to build it i will be using just the...

    Suppose yeah but it depend on per user might get away with word processing but it would be bottlenecked in my experience. even when i posted earlier about windows msconfig i disabled 2 cores ran for a day to test out how crippled the performance was, dirt rally 2.0 was happy to run the game with...

    You know that the not enought space said that there too many microcodes was in the bios you have to remove the celeron and pentium microcodes to make room for the xeon microcodes

    I know i only said it as it easier to monitor which cores turbo to 3.1ghz. Cinebench r20 is demanding on cpu than r15 so yes it will make the cpu 100% all cores

    Only way to find out is to run some sort of benchtest like cinebench r20 to see the turbo to pop up unless he has the intel speed step enabled and the turbo enabled in the bios that why it idles on the base clock is my guess nothing to worry about. Use hwinfo to display everything to see what...
