    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    On my 5900x I'm running 150/115/130 I see 5Ghz boost with an occasional 5.05Ghz, R23 runs 4.65-4.8 depending on the core. I'll have to run a Linpack to compare. My goal was to find the sweet spot between performance and efficiency.

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    All your turbo speeds will be thermally limited. As a [H]ardOCP member and gamer type It doesn't make sense to spend $550 on a processor and leave 10%+ of the processor's potential performance on the floor. Unless you don't care about clock speed and are one of those users who are...

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    PPT 150 TDC 115 EDC 130 These settings will limit your processor to approx 150 watts. That'll keep you at or near 80c with most of the decent air-cooled heatsinks. You can push PPT higher, but your temps will rise as well. With my older Noctura U12 raising the PPT to 165 raised the...

    Try these settings: PPT 150 TDC 115 EDC 130 You should see a 7c drop on Air before you touch the processor voltage.

    Begun the AM5 Wars Have....

    Yeah, the Asus motherboard without the Wifi and built-in Ethernet was $40 more. The number of slots was also the same across all 4 variations of this motherboard. I chose the motherboard based on cost, stability and what items I required..certain number and type of PCIe slots. In this case...

    I remember the Abit BP6. I also owned an EPOX board which was another of those exceedingly awesome boards from yester-year. But in regards to the 2.5Gbe post near the beginning of the thread, my brand new Asus TUF Gaming X570 Pro Wifi has an Intel i255v that I haven't found a single...

    Your CPU progression

    Intel 486 DX4 100MHz Cyrix 6x86 PR90+ AMD K5 PR200 <-- Ran this with a Peltier cooler at 166Mhz for a while and then it actually did perform nearly as fast as an Intel 200 MMX Processor AMD K6 II 366MHz (Not inspiring at all) AMD K6-III+ 450Mhz (Surprisingly one of my favorites) Intel Pentium...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    My first tiny apartment 600 sq , I heated the second floor with a Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor overclocked. When I finally decided to rebuild the PC, a month later I realized my electric bill dropped by $17 and the second floor temperature had dropped by 5 degrees. That thing idled at...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    Ok...Since you're asking for me to pull out my crystal ball. Basically, the next couple processor releases are fairly set, unless AMD or Intel screws up. Here's what's most likely to occur for the server market: Desktop processors can/may have more refreshes, alterations etc... Winter...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    So there's a couple things at play here. Intel chips have a burstable turbo mode speed that can only be sustained for a short period, they also have a different slower turbo mode that can run "x" number of cores indefinitely. The peak number is that short burstable number. AMD vCache...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    A somewhat newer linux based router is firewalla. Evidently the company is a bunch of ex cisco engineers. It integrates well with Ubiquiti equipment as well. I'd look at Blue Plus or the Gold Models. You need Blue Plus at a minimum to get fq_codel to mitigate buffer bloat...

    Picking a home router

    DDWRT has been a pile of dung living off of its history running on the Lunksys WRT54G for over a decade. If you'd like to migrate into this decade, look at any of the superior forks such as Shibby Tomato the supported hardware for shibby's tomato is here: http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=69...

    Cat6 or Cat6a for home?

    FYI... last time I looked cat6a terminations cost a pile more then cat6 ones. I remember cat 6 ends being about $1.00 each and cat 6a end being $4.97 each.

    ESXi vCPUs multiprocessor limits?

    The accuracy of the info here for VMware and ESXi is all over the place. So let to throw in my 2 cents... vCPU allocation has changed in the past couple of versions of ESXI. The latest best practice for ESXi 6.5 is to NOT touch cores and to allocate sockets only. ESXI 6.5 doesn't do what...

    Server load problem

    See if you can load the entire MySQL db into cache. 160MB is nothing. That should be an easy change and should removed some read latency and CPU overhead. It may also cause your CPU to be driven higher, but your resulting performance should scale linearly as well. After that you really...

    Server load problem

    So you're entire instance is running within 1GB of RAM? That doesn't make sense. With that small of a database you could load the entire db into cache and have few fetches outside of updates. It makes me wonder what else is going on. What processes are eating so much CPU?

    Server load problem

    How many CPU cycles are you consuming peak? How many CPU cycles are you consuming avg. during your high load period? How large is the database, your web page is reading from? How much of your current storage is being consumed? What's the RAM usage of your instance look like under load? I...

    Intel NIC settings...a tweak too far?

    I'm not going to argue if you should enable jumbo frames, as you'll probably not get out of it what you are looking for. But operationally the proof is in the testing. Assuming QOS or VLAN tagging it not involved did you test at 1500, 4000 and 9000? Did you enable and match the maximum frame...

    VM with passthrough "freezes" entire ESXi box when shutdown/rebooting guest

    You should look into the various options of implementing vSGA verses vDGA and vGPU. VMware convienently only tells you about it in the Horizon documentation but there's nothing stopping you from using it without horizon licensing. You'd have to load the VIB manually as well.

    Intel NIC settings...a tweak too far?

    ........And that would be because something in your networking chain does not support Jumbo Frames or at least the frame size you selected.

    WiFi Woes - Cannot Seem To Get Whole House Covered

    You are not mistaken, it is completely possible to that your setup works that way you suggest..and it should. But your comments do not conflict with that fact that in the end the client controls what AP it decides to connect to. Wireless is complex. To anyone that doesn't understand the...

    "You're downstairs and turn on wi-fi, it'll connect to the downstairs WAP. When you go upstairs, as long as your device can still talk to the downstairs WAP, it will not switch to the upstairs WAP, even if your signal to the downstairs WAP is super weak. This is where mesh is better" I'm going...

    Streaming Exclusivity Wars Risk Driving Users Back to Piracy

    I think it may be partially about the price. If service A allows me to watch so many hours of content for X number of dollars, I might be willing to pay for it. Example: CBS drops the price to $1.99 enables live streaming and offers 7 hours of non live content a week. I might buy into...

    WiFi Woes - Cannot Seem To Get Whole House Covered

    Running a cable from the existing router/AP to a single Ubiquiti UAP-AC-LR, ceiling mounted centrally on the 2nd floor, with the output power turned down should provide magnitudes better coverage for the 1st and 2nd floor.

    Those of you with Ubiquiti - Are you as frustrated as I am?

    I believe this is a newer issue, new since firmware 1.9.x That's 1 reason my ER-PoE was running 1.8.5. Supposedly there's a hotfix 4 in alpha for 1.9.7, but they want to hold on to it for 1.9.10 or 1.9.11. You may be able to downgrade to 1.8.5 and retest, but please make certain you...

    Those of you with Ubiquiti - Are you as frustrated as I am?

    Yes. You just jogged my memory. There's a known issue where the ER will not update it's DHCP address until the lease time has expired or you restart the Router. There's a dependency on DNS that's also contributing to this issue.

    Those of you with Ubiquiti - Are you as frustrated as I am?

    I owned a ER-PoE it's basically a ERL with a 3 port switch chip added on. Things go wrong very fast when you try to route across the switch ports, treat the collection of 3 ports like they are one route and things are fine, try to route between those ports and you'll see CPU go up and...

    Slow 50MB/s file sharing in Win7
