  1. My understanding with how OCing works might be a bit off but on my Asrock Z170M Extreme4 I set the voltage to "Fixed Mode", made it 1.3v and set the Load Line Calibration thing to level 1. I figured that would make it a constant 1.3v but in HWiNFO64 it detects the Core VIDs at 1.270v maximum, 1.235v when it's not 1.270v. Any idea what I could be missing?
  2. It's complicated but I did a very dumb thing, so here's how it all happened and don't know what I should do: Months ago I had a RAID setup with two of my HDDs. This is also when I started OC'ing my CPU and RAM a little and made some BIOS profiles with varying OCs. Sometime after this I'd gotten an SSD, wiped my two drives, disabled RAID and made my SSD the primary drive. I recently thought about OC'ing further just to see if I could push it a little more and I selected the BIOS preset of my previously highest OC I'd attained, I forgot that it enabled RAID however and I was restarting my PC constantly, changing UEFI settings and boot devices. While I thought it would be as simple as disabling RAID and selecting my SSD as the boot drive, it turned a little more complicated when that attempt almost immediately blue screened before I could even load into Windows. After a few more restarts attempting to do the same thing, Windows automatically started the diagnostics and let me choose between repairing and continuing to windows. Since it's easy enough to grab my flash drive to try to repair I figured I'd see if I could just "Continue to Windows" even though I thought it wouldn't work. After another quick restart however it did work, successfully got me to Windows yet again like nothing ever happened... but I have no idea if I can just restart, make my SSD the default boot device again and not worry anymore or if things will start acting up again. Any ideas on what I should do? Also, is there any way I can backup my stuff for free? That little 15 minute panic session made me really want to plan just in case.
  3. When I record with ReLive the clip always has 8 audio channels. It makes the footage completely unusable as the audio is heavily distorted and I can't edit in in Vegas Pro to make it useable.
  4. they are textures right? With that said I can't think of anytime where water textures themselves look blurrier at more oblique angles, just reflections getting cut off when using SSR. Does the AF setting apply to them?
  5. It works but I'd like for it to not be choppy when doing other things in the background Thanks for the answer though.
  6. My friend (who has a 4690, 16gb ram, gtx 1060 with gpu usage at ~30%) is able to use his graphics card for youtube playback. I can't seem to achieve this kind of hardware acceleration for playback and even 4k60 videos use less than 15% of my video card. Anyone know how I can change this? I tried Chrome and Firefox, with "Use hardware acceleration when available" enabled on Chrome.
  7. Understood, already had all that stuff covered beforehand. There's a reason why I ONLY asked about low profile vs. standard. Thanks for trying to help anyway.
  8. That's what I get ^ besides, doesn't really matter once you get the model number.
  9. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/4808734349675151089?q=hp pavilion desktop 510-p024&oq=hp pavilion desktop 510-p024 Friend of mine has that and wants a new graphics card, does he need a low profile one or will a small full sized card work? How do you tell?
