    ASUS RGB Lighting Service prevents idle clocks

    ASUS X570-F Gaming, Latest BIOS The LightingService for the RGB accessories constantly takes up 1-1.5% CPU and prevents my R3800X from downclocking to its lowest points, around 600-700MHz according to Ryzen Master. Of course I like the effects, is this the penalty price?

    Some of the best cards for a non-UFEI (Legacy) BIOS?

    I posted a thread the other day about matching a GPU to a Q9550 that's not too high end. A lot of people said the GeForce 750Ti would be great but I don't think some of the larger "Legacy-enabled" (MSI) cards will fit in my friend's HTPC case, those were suggested and linked. I really liked...

    Without Pentium 4/Netburst, how long would it have taken Intel to get to 'Core'

    Let's say the PIV/Netburst didn't exist and let's say the Core Solo (Pentium III/-M based) was called the Pentium IV. How long from the release of the last Tutulians until the first part that we today would call "First Generation Core"? Imagine an Athlon 64 against an Intel Core in say 2003, LOL.

    click.hardforum issues

    Happening over here, too. Probably best to just disable it, take it down and let vB handle the click management like it was done in the old days. I think upwards of 99.99% of [H]ard members would agree. :D
