Generally, science industry and programmers working with high precision computational stuff. Gamers and Office users, not really. But, I use it (I deal with some high tier precision math in my programming), and it isn't effecting my oc in any noticeable way.

IOMMU however, that could work against performance, and is only reaaaly helpful for people who run virtual machines.

I run with both on, as I use vm's too. ;p

My oc is fine, but with iommu off, I didn't see if I could be more aggressive with memory or if NB would clock higher (not that it matters).

Can you Saber owning legends please confirm something for me. Which is the voltage setting for the RAM itself, 'DRAM Voltage' or 'VDDR Voltage'?
post #3587 of 10159
Dram voltage.

I could do with getting some more replies on the RAM voltage question tbh. If it's as the saber manual says, and it is 'VDDR voltage', then my 30nm Samsung RAM is doing 1600MHz CL8 with 1.25v! bigeyedsmiley.png
