    Guys, I'm in need of your wisdom.. 2600k and Z77 OCF board overclocking...

    First Ever heard of such a thing, @cadaveca You have any knowledge of this ? Dave has used it vastly more than I have, and I been using XTU since I got my 2600K, at least in January 2012 , and that is how I was able to get the 5.2Ghz OC on mine. Intel XTU is more for system monitoring and...

    That screenie is of XTU, Intel Tuning Utility, I Don't do Intel Burn Test, or them other crazy loading test for the just because. If your system will play and do everything you ask even if it's crunching ect, then good. I Don't believe that running Prime, ect for hours justifies a "stable" OC...

    Corsair 360mm AIO still doesn't beat the Corsair H110GT... why?

    They just need to make some with like the HAF in mind to use a 230mm Rad and fan to match. Get the best of large rad and Super quiet fan operation

    Guys, I'm in need of your wisdom.. 2600k and Z77 OCF board overclocking...

    If they have the visual bios maybe they need to go to the classic mode, that's where I have to go to get over 4.5. I have a DZ77GA-70 board, and although I'm having a couple issues, I have determined it to be related to the BIOS that was last issued for it. TBH I'm confused about the "rarity...

    Yep Mine running Stock Voltage 1.24vid with a small tweak at 5.0-5.2 24/7 on an Old scythe Ninja for last several years. @EarthDog has seen it and can verify, it was kinda weird but it worked out ! Same about the ram on my Z68, No way to get over 1900[bclk] but it was as much bandwidth as...

    E5-2690 v2 on LGA2011 x79 platform; mem clocks @ 1866MHz

    May be 2 things that are an issue, 1. It might be that for that board and CPU just wont do it as observed, 2. You may need to use an older BIOS. I have ran into this issue with a move from my Z68 to Z77. Only swapped the motherboard but it will Not let me change the "Default" 1600 speed of the...

    How to recover data from RAW Hard Disk

    Did you select those options? It show's you have 32Gb's of data you think that's correct? Just tell it Yes to all, then when it's done it may give you Green, Yellow or Red selections, look for the largest Green data to recover. It's unknown at this point just what the disc error is, AFTER you...

    Gaming benchmarks: Core i7 3770K 4.5 GHz vs Core i7 6700K 4.5 GHz

    I believe he is referring to the stock voltage here As you can see It's default voltage and active voltage are the same I just added a .040mv Turbo voltage and up'd the power limits. It's what has worked from the onset with this combo so I'm not going to complain.

    Gaming benchmarks: Core i7 3770K 4.5 GHz vs Core i7 6700K 4.5 GHz

    There's plenty of screenies from waay back testing the Samsung ram with Dave @102 Bclk It's been running like this for years since they came out. And yes it on a modded old skt478 Scythe Ninja Rev.B cooler with 1 old fan

    Gaming benchmarks: Core i7 3770K 4.5 GHz vs Core i7 6700K 4.5 GHz

    Love the comparison great job I'm going to see if the upgrade to an Intel Z77 Extreme☠️ I got last month will make any difference from my DZ68 ☠️ board. Will be interesting at least if it will still clock 5.0-5.2 as well to see how those killer LP Samsung's fair Even tho Intel said they were Not...

    What happened to ABIT?

    it was acquired by Universal Scientific International (USI) in May 2006, then started to operate under the brand name Universal ABIT. I feel it was a hostile takeover in the hiding. They were a top contender and tbh I think Intel could have had a hand especially after the 865PE boards (AI7)...

    After OC my RAM write speed falled down

    Have you tried adjusting your timings with the OC ? You gained faster Latency which is to be expected but it will need to be offset with tighter timings also. There is lot of gains in the tieriatary timings that can make huge gains in certain situation[ which is a whole other level] Dave and...

    Will this PSU be good for my setup

    I still have a FSP Group FX700-GLN 700W ATX12V V2.2/EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply that ran balls out with the P43.4EE Gallatin and 5870 then thru the Q6700 and started with this current setup. It's an excellent quality PSU maker that many here at TPU had...

    Russia successfully tests 'unstoppable' 4,600mph hypersonic weapon

    I remembered back in the '90's we were making "replacement parts" for the shuttle's. Couldn't figure out why some had changed especially in size. Turn's out it was the X37. Some times you just never know what's what even right under your nose. Remember that the DoD gave NASA 2 very high...

    New iMac Pro coming with VEGA and VR support

    I heard some of the podcast about the hyper announcement and about Vega it's, 11Tflps full precision 8/16 Gb of high bandwidth at a {gazillion( don't recall} Ghz, but they said "it's also 1/2 precision of 22Tflps, and "you cant get that from any other maker". " Combine this with our 5K screen"...

    Russia successfully tests 'unstoppable' 4,600mph hypersonic weapon

    This is so true. I worked on many projects from back in the 80's that led up to the newest mag launch and rail gun systems that we were working on when I retired in 2012. Only after the "public" release of information was I able to even speak about a few years ago here at TPU in another thread...

    Intel Extreme Tuning Utility

    Been using XTU for years, excellent program for Intel systems. @cadaveca is another long time user of it. I have to use an older version for my board but it has all the functions and readouts for the system, very nice.

    Temperature Spikes Reported on Intel's Core i7-7700, i7-7700K Processors

    That's happened somewhat with Intel before like when the Malaysia chips were most always the creme of the crop for the O/C lottery cant remember which one's stood out the most [myQ6700, 3.4P4EE and my current 2600K all Maylay] It was usually a hot topic on the "where" people were getting them...

    Need Some Help Overclocking 2600K/ASUS P8P67 Combo

    I've been able to leave all voltages stock just added .040 to CPU and up the Power Limits. See if there is an option for that also. I could NOT change voltages to get any stable O/C in the beginning, and Dave noticed Intel changed the naming of voltages so it was hit and miss but ultimately...

    A utility to decrypt WannaCry ransomware

    I asked pretty much the same a couple days ago,........no responses and unsure from reading on the web, but it still has the ability to just scour the web looking for some SMB holes for sure. So not clear if any website like that other TecH site with shit tons of ad's can carry an infection in it.
