    Mixing sets of RAM

    The 1600Mhz RAM has XMP but I haven't enabled it yet: I think I will stick with the 16GB but keep the 8GB and install them again in case I need more ram in the future.

    Mixing sets of RAM

    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.

    Mixing sets of RAM

    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...

    What type of defect is this

    It appears that the dark area covers a bit more than 1 pixel, does anyone has any idea what is going on ?

    What type of defect is this

    That's the first thing I did. It is really weird, the pixel seems to be working but it appears as dead due to extremely reduced brightness.

    What type of defect is this

    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: http://i.imgur.com/maZ1JdB.jpg http://i.imgur.com/smAP54e.jpg...

    Samsung 850 Evo performance problems with AHCI

    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...

    Samsung 850 Evo performance problems with AHCI

    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...

    Dell P2414H

    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 ?

    Core unlocking with AM3+

    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. The...

    Core unlocking with AM3+

    Maybe it's a problem only with Gigabyte, what about the other manufacturers ? For example, ASUS M5A97 EVO seems to have this function in the UEFI, but is it working ? I know this option is removed form the REV 2.0 version but what about the 1.0 ?

    Core unlocking with AM3+

    So what you are saying is that I can't upgrade the motherboard with this CPU ?

    Core unlocking with AM3+

    So I have an Athlon II X3 unlocked to Phenom II X4 and overclocked to 3.3Ghz on stock voltage. It is still useful to me so I will not be upgrading it. However, my motherboard is causing damage to the other components (this thread) so I will be replacing it. The problem is, I've heard that most...

    PSU causing damage to PCI-E pins ?

    So my best bet is to just replace the motherboard ? I find it really odd that it only happens on 2 specific pins. Also I thought gold didn't corrode. And would the corroded pins on the old devices cause damage to the new motherboard ? I would probably not be able to get a replacement motherboard...

    PSU causing damage to PCI-E pins ?

    Something in my PC is causing damage to the PCI-E pins and I think these are the power supply pins. Example: The graphics card I've had for about a year: The sound card I've had for about 3 years is in a significantly worse shape, pretty much the entire gold coating of these exact 2 pins is...

    Blue shapes on gray background

    I think it may be a temporary burn-in of the picture I'm viewing since it's changing. Does this happen with IPS panels often ? For example, I ran a video on it and now I can't see the above picture.

    Blue shapes on gray background

    Hello. Does anybody know what is this ? http://i.imgur.com/dCpAwGL.jpg If you look carefully you can see blue shapes on the gray background. It only ever appears on gray background and it's very, very hard to see. I will not be returning the monitor due to this unless it gets worse, so my...

    Dell P2414H

    I seem to have the turning off problem too, DVI. I don't have DisplayPort on the graphics card. Would it work if I get a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and connect the monitor to the GPU from the DisplayPort interface to the computer's HDMI interface ? How often does the turn on/off issue happen...
