  1. eh.. that is JEDEC spec 1600MHz for DDR3... anything above that is considered OC and he has motherboard and CPU that can go with it so ... Yes, there are benefits to that. I suggest you to check the guide to RAM OC. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/773966-comprehensive-memory-overclocking-guide/
  2. Do you use any other 60Hz secondary screen?
  3. Why isn't 4k 4times slower than 1080p?

    Because some graphical settings, geometry, etc... have the same-ish performance impact regardless of resolution.
  4. Do you like the new forum update?

    So far so good, especially on phone. I hope the text bug is gone from PC...
  5. Deliding die mate X tool....

    It just takes all that fun and stress from deliding away. Check if caseking.de ships to USA
  6. Intel engineering team requested new keyboards for their PCs. Unfortunately, the keyboards are faulty and all keys input only F5. Would explain all the refreshes...
  7. Power throttling before reaching power limit

    Did that ages ago... "We couldn't replicate the issue" despite multiple users having the same issue
  8. Random FPS Drops in Games

    FX6300 to FX8350 makes no difference in games. FX8350 bottlenecks even GTX 1060 6GB in almost all games, not to mention the GTX 1070. The FPS drops are caused mainly because of your CPU (how much really depends on a game you play). That said, I don't think the 1-15FPS drops are mainly the CPU issue. There may be something else causing an FPS hog. Try to change all power plans to max performance.
  9. Huawei P9 (non lite) vs P10 lite

    P9 > P10 Lite I would take the P9. I have Mate 8 right now which is very similar to P9 and is great. P9 should still receive updates afaik.. not sure about my Mate 8.
  10. Power throttling before reaching power limit

    yes, it hard caps at 117%
  11. Power throttling before reaching power limit

    Yes, power limit jumps from 0 to 1 and stays at 1 while reporting 117% power. No, this is not because of temperatures. Superposition, Furmark, Firestrike Ultimate, Witcher 3, Rise of the Tomb Raider, ... I hit power limit at 117% all the time despite the card being set to 127%. But why? It should be able to take another 30W.
  12. My 1080ti FTW3 has 127% power limit but it power throttles at 117% regardless if I max out the slider in Master BIOS or Slave BIOS (Only Slave BIOS allows me to go up to 127% but the clocks and power throttling occur exactly the same as on Master BIOS). NVIDIA-SMI Reported max Power limit is correct but card throttles at 320W-330W This is when running Firestrike Ultimate (UC VRAM and OC VRAM) (max temp 60*C): You can clearly see that VRAM clocks greatly affect Core Clocks because of power, yet the power is still on the same levels and 20-30W away from the real power limit.
  13. Stuck between TN 144hz and IPS 60hz 1440p

    Motherboard's refresh rate? ^^
  14. Yes. Single NVME drive can almost saturate all of its bandwidth so... Should be kinda OK for two NVME but I wouldn't bother with more. Assuming that the NVME is the only thing you use on the DMI (no USB, Sata, etc...)
