    Intel processor generational differences

    as someone with everything from sandy bridge through to ryzen in the house, the only flaw with the older intel platforms is (was?) the chipset/board features - USB 3.0, NVME, etc - actual CPU performance itself held up very well over the years. Basically, dont just look at the CPU - look...

    I experienced spilt second freeze in games like GTA V, Fortnite....

    at 768P, the GPU load will be pretty low - so its very likely you're running out of system RAM after a few minutes, and the lag spikes are windows dumping/restoring data from the hard drive. I've got quite a few ivy bridge systems in the house (something like 15 of those CPU's have been through...

    Help with Diagnosis of Danger Symptoms: CPU or GPU—What to Do

    you dont do any conversions from C to F, you deal with the temps in C - because thats how intel/nvidia/AMD etc list their max safe temperatures. What are these temperatures you ran into? Was it on the GPU or CPU? Can you get accurate maximum readings from something like realtemp or GPU-Z, while...

    A Tale of broken laptops, trades, and epic wins :D

    the 1050ti was close to retail price, but local buyers would take a 1030 over a 980ti, they only care about the bigger number... that 1050ti will add $400 to the sale price because people are dumb.

    Download Windows 10 TH/RS

    updated and installed, while it may be a preview build there is no indications of it being insider, or limited in any way. defaulted to HDR on in windows settings and looked horrible with washed out colors, turning that off looks heaps better. Have no idea why HDR on looks garbage, but HDR off...

    Crappy VRMs on B350s, few X370s as well - inadvisable Ryzen 7 overclocking over 1.32-1.35V

    They can definitely hit XFR - its running all 8C/16T at those clocks that the VRM's cant handle

    ironically enough i love my MSI GPU's, but the boards were a bit of a letdown (they were quite cheap, at least)
