Hey guys, anyone know why my r9 280x never reaches boost clocks? PowerColor says the core clock is 880 MHz, then boosts to 1030 MHz. I ran Unigine Valley, and the core clock never went past 880 MHz. I've OC'ed my processor a couple of years ago, and now I'm trying to OC my GPU. I haven't done anything to my GPU clocks yet, just wanted to see my stock performance in Unigine Valley. I use Afterburner and HWiNFO64 to monitor my GPU stats. I used Unigine Valley in Extreme HD...
We're using an Asus Z170 Pro Gaming board right now and an i5 6600k. I really don't trust the one-click overclocking solutions, they usually supply excessive VCore.These are the settings I've changed so far:1. (I don't remember what setting exactly) CPU Ratio applies to all cores2. Multiplier to 463. Load Line Calibration (under DIGI+ VRM) to level 34. CPU Core Voltage to 1.295. Disabled spread spectrum, CPU C-states (under advanced > CPU Config > CPU Power Management...
Thanks for the response, +rep! Okay. I changed those settings. Present UEFI settings: LLC: level 6 (from level 3) VCore (manual): 1.32 (from 1.35) C-states: disabled (from enabled) My friend told me he only wants 4.6GHz, so we went from 47 to 46. I'm using HWiNFO64, CPU-Z and HWMonitor to check the pc stats, and p95v29p (blend) to stress test. VCore: 1.376 V Max core temp (max): 85 *C Max core temp (ave.): 68 *C Gonna reduce the VCore a bit more to lower the temps, I...
I'm overclocking my friend's 6600k, am I doing things correctly? Cooler is a CM Hyper 212+, motherboard is a Asus Z170 Pro Gaming It's now at 4.7GHz, 1.312-1.344 volts VCore (according to CPU-Z and HWiNFO), max temps are 81 degrees C, minimum temps are 30 deg C. I'm stress testing with p95v289 (blend, small FFTs, and custom) These are the only changes I made to the UEFI Multiplier: 44 VCore: (Manual) 1.35 V LLC: Level 3 I didn't change anything not mentioned above, such...
Yes, the card will fit the 410. The card is 277mm long, and the phantom can house 305mm long cards w/o the hdd cage fan, and 280mm long cards with the fan. Yes, the psu can handle the system. I built a friend of mine a PC with almost the same specs, and we OC'd his 6600k to 4.5 GHz just fine.
The technology isn't 100% complete yet, but this is a huge step in research. Everything has to start somewhere. So saying, or even implying, this tech discovery (and AirCarbon) is useless is ignorant. I'm a chemical engineering student, and we feed our theses with incomplete technologies such as this to further the tech. Most, if not all, discoveries do not work on day 1.
Hey guys, I re-installed windows 10 hoping to fix my stutter problem ― which was a total success. I found that the frequent stutter/hang was caused by Etron USB 3.0 drivers. Upon installing windows 10, I noticed there were several up-to-date drivers, and some outdated drivers. I replaced the outdated ones and retained the up-to-date ones. The stutter went away due to this. Are the up-to-date ones the real deal or should I try updating them? I don't want to repeat the...
I restarted/reinstalled windows 10 for the second time now. I checked control panel > hardware > device manager, and saw that there are drivers installed already, and some of these drivers are already up to date. Are these drivers really the real deal? I mean, I don't have to update the seemingly up-to-date drivers anymore? edit: I didn't replace the existing USB 3.0 drivers upon installation, and the problem is gone now. Thanks for all the help.
I ran into 2 BSOD's when I was installing drivers. Both BSOD's gave an error about Driver IRQL not less or equal - EtronXHCI.sys, which I assume is the USB controller since the Etron driver is for the USB 3.0. I can't seem to install it because installing it results in a BSOD. I'm gonna try uninstalling the USB 3.0 driver, and reinstall the latest one.
Thanks, gonna check my drivers. I believe I installed the latest versions of the board drivers, but I might have missed some; doesn't hurt to double check. Okay, gonna run P95 and kombustor in a bit, just gonna finish the drivers.The last time I ran P95 and kombustor, I remember not having any stutters; but when I copy files, or whenever the HDD is at 100% load (seen on task manager), the computer keeps on stuttering.
