  2. Strix X470-F BCLK lock CPU at 3.6Ghz

    AMD Motherboards
    I'm trying to compensate the spread-spectrum by increasing bclk, but for some reasons, having it at 101, lock my max cpu boost at 3.6Ghz. Is this a bios bug or some sort of "feature"? Anyway to fix it? PC in the signatures, 2600X one.

    AMD CPUs
    I'm currently trying an all core oc on my 2700x, just to see how good it can be. For now I'm stable 4.2Ghz 1.3812V, however vcore under full load is 1.362V. Should I set LLC to max (Lv5) and use a lower voltage? Right now is at Lv4. PC specs in the signatures.

  14. CPU sometimes 36W higher than usual for seemingly no reason?

    Intel CPUs
    Yesterday I noticed that my CPU temperatures were higher than usual, which was strange. Then I noticed that the power consumption looked suspiciously high. After restarting the system, everything went back to normal. It happened again today, as you can see: 54W (abnormally high) 18W...

    AMD - General
    The other day an old computer's GPU stopped displaying video. My good old 8800gts 512 was still pumping it's fan pretty hard anyway. I switched the card for what is apparently a Radeon X550.
