    3.2TB SSD for $240

    I'm an overclocker and I'm always testing settings to push things. Why are you trying to tell me how to use my computer I paid money for? I resent that.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    The fact that you have an enforced 10 minute error scan after a unsafe shutdown (etc, BSOD) is a deal breaker for me. I'd rather spend my money, not being as rich as all of you guys here, on something less aggravating. But if you can handle such a thing, sure, good bargain for lots of storage...

    Tiger handheld game systems coming this fall for $15

    Karnov ?? Wasn't that some game about some fat asian dude who blew fire out of his mouth and climbed stuff? I remember that game in the Arcades. Wasn't that popular with games like Black Tiger and Ikari Warriors and Twin Cobra/Eagle around...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Sir Patrick Stewart is probably healthier than some people in this forum. I know some guys who were in their 40's and 50's who died from brain hemorrhages and heart attacks. Hell, even Shatner is doing pretty well for someone *age 88*. If only he had watched his weight and worked out Dwayne...

    Baldur's Gate 3 Twitter Tease

    Just as bad as the pathfinding were the AOE spell indicators which were NOT in the original releases. Blasting half your players with fireballs because you didn't know the range of the explosion was just so much fun... I heard they were only added in the Enhanced Editions. A bit pointless if...

    Creative Super X-Fi Gen 2

    Gen 2 on my SFXI Amp improves positioning clarity of rear surround and lessens the reverb. It does seem like I can hear rear cues of enemies behind me better with it and it's not placebo, even though I had no problems before. It does seem more distinct now and I'm happy with the change. Also...

    Razer Viper Ultimate Wireless gaming mouse $119.99 Amazon

    Doubleclick issues have absolutely NOTHING to do with the mouse and everything to do with the microswitches. The new optical switch upcoming Razer mice will never doubleclick, and won't have the firmware problems the Asus optical switch mice will have (like pressing both buttons causing them to...

    Oc per core does not work

    Sounds like a troll post since you didn't even give us any system specifications besides 'um, I have a 9900ks!" That's not how per core overclocking works. Turbo boost ratios (# of cores loaded) is not per core overclocking. Turbo boost ratios set a turbo boost speed based on how many cores...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order $14.06 Europe and Latin America

    $49.79 for me (Original price $59.99). This entire OP deserves a massive downvote. Jesus. There have been so many 'barely warm' deals or deals for rich people lately...(like almost $1,000 cost items) :(

    9900K or wait for KS?

    Yes K and KS will work fine in those boards. Your VRM's will be a bit toasty but it will work. Make sure you update to a recent BIOS first.

    9900KS Temps - Some Cores Hotter Than Others

    All 9900K samples are similar to this. Cores #2 and #4 are always the hottest cores (using the 0-7 numbering). Even if you sand down the die _flat_, and like 0.2mm, they're STILL the hottest cores. Just the delta gets closer. This has absolutely nothing to do with it. Run a prime95 AVX Small...

    What do you use to test stability?

    Prime95 is NOT an "App". Neither is LinX 0.9.6 They are power viruses. Prime95 can be used as an app if you know what you're doing with the test options. With that logic you wrote in your post, no one should be overclocking their video cards if they burn up the VRM's running furmark. Come on...

    What do you use to test stability?

    Small FFT with AVX is more irrelevant as a stress test than before, because the chips become completely impossible to cool unless you are using non conventional cooling methods (direct die, multiple 360 rads, etc). You can't say this is a valid stress test if your chip needs enough voltage so...

    Vega 64 hotspot- how hot is too hot?

    Limits on air bios are 85C core, 95C HBM, 105C hotspot. If hotspot throttled at 95C, everyone's reference card would throttle :) Of course you want to stay below that.

    Intel's 9th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (Refresh)

    I'm sorry but your math is very wrong. Can you explain how, in Cinebench R15, which scales perfectly on threads, a 9900K with hyperthreading disabled (apples to apples since L3 cache is higher than on 9700k) gets about 1750 CB (hyperthreading disabled) at 5 ghz, while a 9900K HT enabled at 5 ghz...

    Intel's 9th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (Refresh)

    Each logical thread is only 30% the speed of a physical thread. It does reduce stuttering on programs that actually tries to use more threads than the # of physical cores you have though.

    People are acting like steam is supposed to cater to 40-60 year olds or richer people with families like a large number of people on these forums are. Steam has to compete with Origin and Epic so it has to cater to kids also. Don't like it? Don't use it. Need to deal with change, that's just...

    CPU stays at maximum frequency

    If your BIOS were reset, then either: 1) C-states are disabled. 2) Multi-core enhancement may be auto or enabled. Manually disable MCE then enable c-states and speedshift/speedstep then your CPU will work as expected.

    Is it worth it, 9700 or 9900k

    This problem is either a buggy Bios, buggy 9700k microcode, a buggy windows update (yeah!) or in some rare cases, a defective chip (IMC, etc) in which case the problem is the chip sample, not the chips in general. I've seen people complain about lag like that when overclocking their RAM too far...

    Strange Overclocking Result w/ 9700K

    Plugging in both EPS12v connectors keeps the CPU +12v slightly higher. Multiple people with Gigabyte boards that have VR HWinfo monitoring have observed this. Going from 11.781v to 11.908v has no side effects.

    9700kf Hi temps and hi Voltage...

    If you disable MCE, you need to set all the bios settings manually. You probably forgot to set Loadline Calibration. Set it to Turbo and 1.25v. Also max out the power and current limits and current protection limits in the advanced power settings.

But they were in danger of getting sued by...

If you have Deoxit D5, you can squeeze it into the microswitch under the lever and do it several times (like every few days)...
