  1. 1050 ti for 3D Modeling?

    It will work fine.
  2. Info on storemi and is it like an ssd

    You can't overclock storage speed. Optane is crap, and so are any of these "caching" solutions. If you have an SSD you can just put your stuff on it in the first place and get real SSD speeds. Any caching solution is always slower than an SSD, and often even slower than a hard drive. Not only that, but it has to constantly update the data that's stored in the cache depending on your usage. You don't get to choose what goes there, it chooses for you. It also constantly changes the data there depending on what it thinks you use most often, causing excessive writing to the nand. On top of that, it's only useful if you use a very small amount of data over and over, like playing the same game every day, in which case you could literally have just installed the game there manually and not used any caching software. When you choose to use a different program or file or whatever, it will be HDD speeds again, and probably even worse because it then has to rewrite all the data from the cache back to the hard drive, while moving data from the hard drive to the cache. Overall, it just sucks. Instead of using a piece of BS software just use your storage drives normally. If you can afford an SSD then buy one and put the data you want on it, don't use it as a cache. If you can't afford an SSD, then no you can't magically speed up your hard drive speeds.
  3. First time with a fan noise problem

    It takes literally minutes to replace thermal paste and clean dust out of a computer. It also only takes very little money to replace the cooler with a better one. Ironic, because you said that it "defeats having a 8700k" like a few minutes ago. And your 'solution' does exactly that. It throttles the CPU.
  4. Info on storemi and is it like an ssd

    I feel like you don't understand how storage speed works and why you can't use software to magically "turn your HDD into SSD speeds"
  5. First time with a fan noise problem

    You know that air coolers exist right? You don't need liquid cooling. Also replacing thermal paste is not hard.
  6. Info on storemi and is it like an ssd

    Do you also download your ram?
  7. Info on storemi and is it like an ssd

    It's a scam.
  8. First time with a fan noise problem

    The tasks that a CPU per forms are either of a long duration, eg. rendering a video, in which case it will get hot and throttle, or of short duration where the temps will not make it throttle because the CPU is not being utilized fully. When a CPU is not being utilized fully, you will literally never notice a 10% underclock. Intel CPUs have different speed steps that they reach, so unless the processor is under load it pretty much makes no difference. You could also replace the thermal paste or improve the cooling instead of decreasing performance like your program does. Because as you said, it "defeats having a 8700k" to have it throttle under load too.
  9. Ok well then look at used parts because nothing new is any good for that budget. You can probably spend like 25-50% of the budget on a decent old GPU.
  10. First time with a fan noise problem

    1) Contact forum staff here: https://linustechtips.com/main/staff/ 2) You say "to throttle the CPU to 90%, but that defeats having a 8700k" and all your program does is throttle the CPU. That is literally the exact same thing.
  11. Why would you tear it apart... It is a prebuilt. It already works.
  12. Will 60hz content on a 144hz monitor cause tearing?

    Yeah. Most people don't notice tearing though unless it gets really bad.
  13. Well clearly there is a reason, otherwise it wouldn't be shutting down. Check your temps under load using hwinfo and your drive health using crystaldiskinfo. Also windows event viewer tells you the reason for a computer shutting down or crashing, fyi.
