I overclocked my pc tonight... but it doesnt seem to have made a difference... :-S what am i doing wrong? :-S2
Felt great because I overclocked my 7700k to over 5.2GHz (with a tower fan). A few days later I was streaming Overwatch, won a match, blue screened...
So close to winning the silicone lottery!5
Overclock the laptop screen to 120hz or just buy a new screen thats 120hz and then overclock to 144hz or just go all in and buy 144hz screen.
HMMMM hard decision but i think you know what i will choose since im Haxk20.
Ouuu fuck yeah lets try overclocking it ffs !!!!!!!31
Hmmm since im doing crazy stuff with tech.
Why the fuck no just overclock my tablet GPU right (Intel HD 4000). That will be fun if it goes to plan and even if its able to overclock it.1
Hmmmm. Laptop in repair. Hinge broke. Well now im on old PC.
BIOS showed 1066Mhz RAM.
Its 1333Mhz RAM FFS.
Sets it to 1666Mhz by accident.
Didnt notice it and did all the usual stuff i do on PC.
After 6 hours i notice it. RAM runs cool.
Well overclocked fucking RAM and its stable. Nothing to complain about.
Lets overclock CPU now. 3Ghz dual core just isnt gonna cut it. AMD athlon II X2 250.
And yes this is Haxk20 for those wondering.14
Got lappy back. Added Dual Channel RAM. Build everything from source since i was 1 month behind in commits.
Found out today that i can finally manage Watts limit of my dGPU (RX560X) and i can finally Overclock it too.
Ohhh boyyyyy im going to have fun.6
The feeling when you set a kernel parameter as a test but later yo forget to remove it and it causes your GPU to not enter higher memory clock speeds. Yeah been stuck at 625mhz with poor FPS when compared to 1450mhz.
Waiting for kernel 5.0 or 4.21 whatever it will be called (FFS call it 5.0 finally) that will add the ability to allow my GPU to use more power if i set the limit higher. Then lets fucking overclock it to hell.
And lets mod skyrim to hell right now. ENB and all that cool shit i coudlnt do with my old hardware.
I can already hear the fans going strong. Hmmmmm
Maybe i should apply some better thermal paste because it seems that this one is kind of bad. And oh yeah 5.0 adds ability to control the fans properly. So i can even "Overclock them even tho i wont because they were designed to run like this"
Some acer shitty tech that just applies more voltage to fans then normally. Im not able to do that on linux yet but this is going to change on 5.0
I cant wait.Tried the next branch and damn it feels nice. Fans going strong in games and i can unlimit the GPU power limit finally from 60W. But well its unstable as fuck because its next. So lets just wait for RC.
I am thinking about setting up a dual boot (Windows 10 & Mac Os Sierra) on my windows pc for video editing.
I have a Gtx 1070 and an i7 7820HK... I am going to install both OSs on a PciE Ssd.
Not going to overclock it ofc.
Has anyone done that with similar hardware?15
So Im planning to build a pc, which i will mainly use it for dev and gaming in free time, my main components will be:
CPU: INTEL 8700K
GPU: GTX 1080 msi or gigabyte?
SSD: 860 EVO
RAM: 16GB 3200MHZ
MOTHERBOARD: should i go with msi or gigabyte whixh one is better?
PSU: 650W or 700W deepcooler?
Also for the cpu cooler do i get water colling or a standard cpu fan?
P.S: i plan to overclock the cpu and gpu at some point.
Also whats your opinion on the rgb lightning gpu and motherboard, and is there point in getting a mobo with sli support (is it work buying second gpu at some point or better upgrade the existing)4
I have this fixation with minmaxing core clocks, voltages and their respective curves (P states, basically). I'm still not sure how much it actually improves my experience, but I'll be damned if it isn't fun and interesting to mess around with these numbers and see them climb higher but remain stable.
Currently messing around with a Vega 64. They come in severely overvolted, and I'm trying to get it to retain its performance with less voltage aka less heat. I don't even need to turn on central heating if I'm running stress tests, the bloody thing runs at 80°C! So I guess you can see why undervolting the card is of interest
This conversation happened yesterday between me and a client:
"I need drivers for my Hackintosh build, macOS doesn't find and install the graphics card and the NIC"
I laughed at first, then i asked him his configuration..
"I have a 6700K and an MSI M3 H170"
Okay, things are getting worse here...
"So do you know the difference between H170 and Z170?"
"Yes, I have bought an H170 one because i do not overclock"
"Then, tell me why the f*ck you have bought a K processor if you do not f*cking overclock..."
"Because is more powerful"
F*ck no, he didn't said that...
spent a few days trying to track down the cause of a thermal shutdown in my workstation. intel 4790k with no overclock would spike to 95C on one core (core1) whenever maxing out all 8 threads, be it real work, mprime, anything with 100% cpu being used. I quadrupled my RAM from 8gb to 32, because its cheap and id like to have all data in memory sometimes, not because I thought that was the problem. I reseated my watercooling block. I checked out the PSU. I unplugged all unnecessary peripherals, drives, etc. It turned out to be a bug in Gigabyte MOBO BIOS (causing temps to be read incorrectly i think, still not exactly sure...) updated from version 5 to 10 and poof now temps are back in the high 50's at full load. it only took 2 days to figure out and i think i learned something
