    What should be the max temp for a 6700k?

    I'm running a 6700K with a Noctua NH-U9S cooler. I was wondering, what should I set as a max temp? Right now after 7 minutes of stress test with AIDA64, it hits 76c on RealTemp. Although the temperatures fluctuate wildly from 50-76 when watching RealTemp.

    What in the world is going on with my disk controller? It's topping out at slower speeds than my lan

    First it says like 15MB/s is topping it, then 30something Mbit is only 20% or something. What in the world is going on? Is my SSD dying? Samsung 840 Pro 128GB. This is really weird. I am hoping the disk controller on the motherboard isn't fucked. edit: now it's saying 20MB/s is like 5%...

    Do you think AMD is going to have a dog in the fight again?

    I don't think they're going to try to do some shady shit again, but with only a 40% IPC increase, it's still not catching up [imho]. I really don't want to see them go under. I've always rooted for the underdog, but placed my bets with the one most likely to succeed. I am really, really hoping...

    [META] What happened to all the discussions? It's just help posts 99% of the time.

    Back in the day, there use to be actual discussions, not just help issues. Why isn't that the case anymore? I know after general nonsense got it's own forum, it died down a lot. Honestly, in my opinion, that was a large mistake. This forum feels like pure help posts now. I can never find any...

    What got you in to networking?

    I've always been a coder, but lately I've been learning about system administration and network administration so I can become more well rounded and get in to devops. What got you all in to networking? What certifications do you have? I'm studying for my CCNA/CCNA-Sec

    I'm going to be building a new computer in a month, so I need some space. I have a coolermaster 932 and an HAF X that I'm just giving away. The catch is, you need to convice me why I should give it away to you and not someone else. So, 2 people will get pretty lucky. Pics in an hour or two...

    Asus x99-Deluxe vs x99 Sabertooth, which one should I get?

    I'm buying the 5960x, so don't tell me it's too much board =P. I'm curious as to which one would serve me better in OCing and gaming? I see that the SaberTooth has a faster recommended DDR4 speed, but I'm sure the x99-Deluxe can handle it as well, even though it's not listed. What are the pros...

    Is this alright? [i7 4770k @ 4.5Ghz 1.3v 90c during high Intelburntest]

    Hey all. I just built a new rig and custom water cooling loop. I'm overclocking my 4770k but when I try anything other than intelburntest it stays at or below 72c. But when I try intelburntest it goes in to the low 90's on high and very high. Should I be worried? Why am I pulling some much heat...

    ATiTool Stresstesting on new cards

    Is it still compatible with new cards when it comes to stress testing/artifact scanning? The driver didn't install in to my computer [win 7 64 bit ultimate] although I was still able to scan artifacts and such. The thing is, I flashed my 6950's to 6970's and I'm getting artifacts [not detected...

    Putting Paging file on it's own partition

    If you put the Paging file on it's own partition, EVEN ON THE SAME HDD it will dramatically improve performance. Just make the Paging File partition 4.01Gb and FAT32 and make the min and max space 4Gb and that way it won't fragment from changing it's size all the time, and it will never get filled.
