Thanks, so the question is: is 24GB 1333Mhz better than 16GB 1600Mhz ?
The higher frequency makes almost no difference in applications, and the extra 8GB RAM I'm not that likely to use. I use quite a lot of RAM because I tend to multitask a lot, but I don't think I'd go over 16GB.
So I have 2x4GB ram at 1333Mhz and I decided to upgrade to 2x8GB 1600Mhz.
Just to test, I put both sets in, each in it's own dual channel, and it seems to be working fine, except for the whole thing working at 1333Mhz, which was expected. I did some benchmarks and I can't see the performance...
Hello, I want to identify the type of defect that this is.
The monitor is Dell P2414H, IPS LED
At first it looks like a dead pixel, but upon close inspection it looks like it just has reduced brightness:
So the standard AHCI Windows 7 driver has high CPU interrupts (25-30%) while doing a high IOPS activity.
The newest AMD AHCI driver has 30% Interrupts at all times.
The fairly old AMD AHCI driver from the motherboard's website has 2-3% interrupts max, but unless I check "Turn off Windows write...
So I have an 850 Evo 120GB running on a SATA 2 AMD system with AHCI and a fairly old chipset (760G) on Windows 7 64 bit.
The IOPS are around 30k and the top speeds are about 250MB/s which is fine by me (SATA 2 after all), assuming everything else works fine. The drive is about 65% full. TRIM is...
A few times every day or just on some days 2-3 times and on others no restart at all ? If it was bad capacitors it would have failed by now. I think it's a software problem.
Also do you have an Nvidia GPU with DVI ? Does anyone with an AMD GPU have this issue ?
So I'm guessing all 900 series chipsests have poor core unlocking support.
Problem is, all I can find is either 970/990FX/990X or 760G. I know form experience that 760G supports unlocking, but all 760G boards I can find are crappy mATX HTPC boards with 2 RAM slots and 1 or 2 PCI-E slots.
