  1. Extreme overkill performance PC

    The 8700K only supports up to 64GBs of RAM.
  2. Is my power usage normal?

    And what exactly do you think isn't normal? The only power consumption reading I can see is the one from the CPU, and I think it is pretty normal. My 6700K uses, according to HWMonitor aswell, 7W when all 4 Cores are down to 800MHz. Your i5 clocks 2 cores to 3.9GHz, 1 to 3.6GHz and 1 to 800MHz, so the 17W on the package should be normal, if that was your question.
  3. 7700HQ vs 8250U

    agreed, wait for 8th Gen H chips (They're not called 8xxxHQ anymore ) The H i7 and i9 chips will have 6c/12t while the i5 are going to have 4c/8t. The advantages with the H i5 will be higher clocks, don't even think more cache. But, as said, the i7 and i9s wil have 6c/12t, so that's something to wait for. The 5700HQ and 6700HQ can't (at least not in the Aorus X3 plus V4 and V5). There are no BIOS options, and the clocks are locked in Intel XTU. Pretty sure this watercooled, completely useless, Asus thingy uses an HK chip.
  4. 7700HQ vs 8250U

    Maybe you could oc those 4th gen HQ chips that they're talking about, but I've had a Laptop with an i7 5700HQ, and you couldn't OC this one. It's the same with the newer 6700HQ and 7700HQ chips. (My brother has a i7 6700HQ machine, so I know that for sure)
  5. 7700HQ vs 8250U

    HK is overclockable, HQ isn't well, @Generallee was about 5s faster than me
  6. What’s the best way to learn a language within like a year? Easy?

    First use something like these apps above, later you could look for a person with the language you wanna learn as a mother tongue. Just to say: german isn't easy! The grammar for example is a lot more complicated than in english.
  7. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    Lowest available memory speed in the UEFI is DDR4-800, you really think I should clock the memory down this far? It‘s got an XMP Profile, 2400MHz CL16 st 1.2V, so stock DDR4 voltage. But will try tomorrow, it’s like 1AM over here
  8. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    ok, then I know it won't do 4.6 at 1.4V ever... Unstable OC would be more likely, installed it new like 2 months ago. lol, dunno which one it could be
  9. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    It found the minidump files of yesterday. Even though there was no Bluescreen, the first one says "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and the second one "BAD_POOL_CALLER". The third one from right now has no Bug Check String, but the code is 0x00000101, caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe.
  10. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    Will try when I'm back home. It crashes without a bluescreen.
  11. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    I don't know, haven't tried it. On 4.6 it boots, but the second you start the prime95 stress test, it crashes and reboots.
  12. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    Ya I know, on 4.5 max fan it doesn‘t even hit 60C, so I don‘t really think that this is the problem.
  13. What cpu do U guys have

    i7 6700K in Main pc, i7 2600 in HTPC, i5 8250U in Laptop and a Pentium G4560 in my homeserver. These are the ones that are in action, but I do own some more. I‘ll list them here. - Core2 Duo E8500 - Core2 Duo E8400 - Core2 Duo E6550 - Pentium Dual-Core E5300 - Pentium Dual-Core E5200 - Core i5 4590S - Core i5 2500 - Core i3 3220 - Athlon II X2 260
  14. Motherboard....leaking?

    I would just take it out of the case, take the VRM heatsink off and look out for some bloated or leaking caps and the thermal pads.
  15. I'm not getting it to 4.6GHz....

    No it’s not delidded, haven’t gotten myself to do it, to afraid to break something. A Hyper 212X, tried it with max. fan speed, temps are okay. You can’t easily exchange it in Germany, only if it breaks, without you doing anything to break it.
