  1. It's my old PC from about 2010 which I replaced a couple of years ago with my current main rig. I have it set up in my bedroom for Netflix and running Steam Link. Basically, every time I install an OS on it, after a couple of weeks the installation becomes slow, corrupted and unstable until eventually it won't boot. I've used Windows 7, Windows 10, and Manjaro Linux and they all do the same thing. I've also tried using different SATA cables, different HDDs, SSDs, and different RAM and it makes no difference. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what else might be causing it or easy fixes (like BIOS settings) before I take it down to the dump. Asus M3A78 Pro Phenom II 965 quadcore GTX 560 Ti 750W PSU Gracias!
  2. His work on black holes will be his most enduring legacy, but I think his biggest contribution to the world during his lifetime was A Brief History of Time and his role in popularising cosmology. We are all smarter because of him.
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/mar/14/stephen-hawking-professor-dies-aged-76 I have nothing to say.
  4. It would be nice if they could officially rate one of the cores at 5GHz first. Wasn't the 9590 the only CPU rated to hit 5GHz stock?
  5. My choice of words: "Per-core clock speeds" as opposed to "Per-core overclocking" was deliberate.
  6. I'm not really talking about consumer-end oveclocking here. The idea is, my CPU's default clocks are 4GHz on each core at a stock voltage of 1.11. I know that 3 out of my 4 cores will be stable at 4.3GHz at that voltage, and I'm probably not the only one, so why not just set those cores to run at higher clock speeds before they leave the factory? By ignoring the deficiencies of just one core, you improve overal performance of the SKU and potentially chip yields.
  7. So we all know Intel's turbo feature boosts certain cores to higher clock speeds than others on the die depending on the circumstances and the quality of each core. What I don't get is why they (and AMD) don't just clock each core differently according to its ability in order to maximise performance, since this is what happens under Turbo boost anyway. I'm currently running an 8350K @4.9GHz, and the first thing I noticed while setting up my overclocks is that one of my cores is very unstable at lower voltages compared to the others, and all I can think about is how awesome it would be if I could just leave that one at a lower speed and clock the others well over 5GHz. So why isn't this a common feature with CPUs?
  8. I realise that English is not your first language, but it's very difficult to figure out what it is you are asking. The temps in the gif you included are all nearly 30C which is better than normal. Your max CPU temp is 60C which is also pretty normal for a CPU to hit during startup.
  9. i haven't played any of them since MW3 (not counting MWR). I'm sad that the franchise has now been bad for much longer than it was good. COD4 was one of the greatest games ever made.
  10. Lately I've been randomly hearing the "Device connected"/"Device Disconnected" sounds in Windows, particularly (but not exclusively) while gaming. I have no idea what's causing it, and I'd be quite interested to see if there's a log somewhere so I can figure out what is going on.
  11. There's usually a jumper on the board, if not you can just pull the battery out. Unplug it, cycle the power a few times to eliminate any remaining electricity in the motherboard, remove battery/jumper for a few seconds. This will reset CMOS.
  12. Maybe one of these: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/dVwqqs/scythe-cpu-cooler-scfm1000 https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7 https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/8GBrxr/scythe-mugen-5-rev-b-512-cfm-cpu-cooler-scmg-5100
  13. @BalaBalance Download MSI Afterburner, that will show you what your GPU/CPU usage levels are when you're playing. It will also be easier to help you if we have more info on what is going on. EDIT: Is your copy of Windows activated?
  14. It looks good to me. Only one thing I would say is you could spend an extra 15-20 on a better CPU cooler to bring it up to the price you had originally. Would also help you get a little more out of that 8600k
