  1. dont lock all core frequency, use PBO and adjust voltage with offset instead.
  2. If you write a lot to it at a time during game installs (that's the 660p's main disadvantage), the Gigabyte NVMe should do a lot better. However on paper it's worse than the 660p in random reads due to lack of DRAM, which is a really common thing when running games. I prefer the Crucial just because I know its actual performance and don't need to guess
  3. Toshiba TLC NAND, but it's inferior to many PCIe 3.0 x4 drives as it doesnt have DRAM and has lower than average speed (that speed rating is the max of the Phison E13T controller on it, which is by no means high end like the Phison E12)
  4. Just pull it lower, so higher temps at lower %
  5. Software like Afterburner can set custom fan curve
  6. EVGA XC Ultra, MSI Gaming X, Asus Dual, Zotac Amp, Gigabyte 3 fan, Palit Jetstream etc, pretty much all are more than 2 fan or 2 slot thick
  7. so basically you get the card for the card, not the PCB? I dont think MSI wont cut down anything though even if I have no proof
  8. Good for cold rooms maybe, which is largely not australia
  9. that's why I have to stress that it's only in competitive scenarios
  10. Writing at once, say 50GB into the SSD at once regardless of number of files. TLC and QLC drives all slow down once they use up their SLC cache, for 1TB SSDs that's usually set anywhere from 35GB to 50GB, but it reduces as empty space reduces. QLC is hit much harder than TLC, sometimes QLC can slow down to HDD levels. 660p is also QLC with the same controller, only difference is the manufacturer of the QLC NAND tbh SX8200 is a much better drive than the QLC ones, even though it's I think a year older. Yes, reads barely wear them out compared to writes.
  11. If you play competitive then you can argue that every millisecond mattered... but otherwise no, can't justify that
  12. Because DDR. Back in the past we have SDR memory that has the same data rate as actual operating frequency, in order to market DDR's speed advantage they start talking about data rate only and ignoring I/O bus clock even though both exists for the whole timg\e
  13. Serious software reports I/O bus clock, and DDR memory has doubled data rate to I/O bus clock so 1600MHz I.O bus clock means 3200MHz data rate. Servers do run DDR4 as low as 1600, though that's back when it's first released. You know what? Single channel and dual channel will show the same frequency in CPU-Z. This is just wrong.
  14. then MSI B450 Tomahawk Max then, normal Tomahawk is fine if you dont mind the simplified UEFI design.
  15. Junction temps can get this high, though it's rather poor.
  16. However the stock reject button on the drive is wired? Seems like you're not planning something I had in mind
  17. the reset button just shorts two pins when you press it down, so if that's how the reject button works, just wire that to the drive.
  18. B150 only support Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs. Coffee Lake and Coffee Lake Refresh (8th and 9th gen) may share the same socket but they arent compatible with this board That's why we joked about Intel's upgrade compatibility. They have so far sticked to 2 generations per board rule quite well though, ever since 2nd gen
  19. Anything pulling the GPU? Could check this with Windows Task Manager
  20. Fabric clock is FCLK, doesnt seem to show UCLK though. It's the only option controlled with a ratio (1:1 or 2:1), linked to the memory frequency (half of data rate)
  21. Possibly, it's most likely still going to run at marketed speeds though
  22. Looks correct Check FCLK settings then, also make sure UCLK ratio is set to 1:1
