  1. I wonder if my R7 250 can live up to this behemoth..
  2. tried each of them on the first slot (single) and seems to be running fine though
  3. Title says it all. I have 2x2 sticks and both of them are detected but only 2048 are usable. On BIOS it shows that both of my slots are occupied but it shows that I only have 2048 MB of RAM. I've tried switching it around and it seems that both sticks are fine and that my second slot seems to be the problem.. Anything on how to fix this? Thanks.
  4. you could get 5960X for less or around the same price with twice as much cores and cache and shits lol
  5. lol just saw that and i was like wtf.. almost three times the cost, no extra cores, only couple more megs of cache and bit higher frequency.. what's up with that?
  6. well with the point slightly altered then, do the non k cpus provide enough gain when overclocked for it to matter or atleast affect real world performance? yes its still free but is the gain still as good as it was back then?
  7. It's as in no extra money would be needed. In the older days, *i think* all you need is a better cooler and you're good to go. That's not free but the performance gains you get for your extra $ is worth it. You might even get away with the stock cooler itself. But nowadays, you need a bunch of extra gimmicks like the Z chipsets and unlocked CPUs, which makes the money cost adds up. In addition to the extra cost of the two, you will have to have a better cooler so you can reach the full potential of your unlocked CPU. Whereas in the old days you can get away OCing with stock cooler and you dont have to spend more to justify the extra money cost of mobo and unlocked cpus and such.
  8. back to point one then, it ain't free no more.. you're paying more for a better hardware, hence the better performance too I mean I'm all for the OC fun but I think the for free term is not quite "true" anymore
  9. Isn't that just basically buying a better hardware for better performance and longevity/more "future proof"(i.e. not free) ? But still, you owe yourself to OC that CPU to justify the extra cost
  10. How about it being "a free performance upgrade" ? Do you think OCing still counts as a free performance upgrade despite the extra cost ?
  11. Please bear with me on this, I'm referring to Intel line of processors/CPU, Nowadays, you have to pay more to get an unlocked version of the CPU, which will cost you more money. You have to pay for Z-chipset motherboards to be able to overclock things, which also in the end costing more money. You have to buy an adequate aftermarket cooler to get a decent OC, which also in the end costing more money. You *probably* need to have more headroom in your PSU to OC, which *probably* in the end costing more money as well. Since you have to pay more to OC your CPU, and not to mention you better to pair it with an adequate GPU to keep up with the CPU, doesn't it actually cancel out the "free performance upgrade" of things? Is the overclocking part now more of a hobby (beside the actual performance gain ofc) ? It's probably still valid on high-end workstations, where you need a little extra performance gain without having to spend on a much more expensive CPUs and where the cost of the extra gimmicks can actually be justified.. -> your thoughts ? Yes you are still able to get free performance gains on AMD chips since most of them are unlocked, but you'd probably spend more on some aftermarket cooler as well to get more juice, and yet again costing more money. And yes you still get performance gains on OC'ing GPU, but in this case I'm referring to CPUs (Intel's).. Thoughts ? Do you think OCing to get "free performance upgrade" argument still valid ?
  12. Will you be willing to compromise the upgrade path the Core series offers?
