    Losing 10x multi on e8600 with FSB above ~ 470 mhz

    Any advice? When I reboot at anything above 470Mhz FSB the CPU defaults to the lowest multiplier. I can then go into the BIOS and adjust the multi to 9.5 or below. If I set it back on the 10x multi it simply defaults back to the lowest multiple (on reboot) instead. In testing I can see the...

    i7 8700k memory xmp temps

    Hi Guys, I'm upgrading soon to a i7 8700k and I'm looking at what memory to get and I've read that it's best for performance to get 2666mhz minimum or have a drop in fps compared to systems running higher memory. So if I went with say 2666mhz to get it to run at that I'd enable xmp and what...
