  1. Are you going to stick with the stock cooler? You can get a decent one for around $30. Also, for the monitor, "If you want to use the 155hz refresh rate or G-Sync, you will need to purchase a DisplayPort 1.2 or better cable yourself." FYI. Also, you can get 3600 MHz ram for the same price (but no RGB): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jBZzK8/gskill-ripjaws-v-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc
  2. Thanks for your reply! I did open Limit Reasons when running prime95 again, and sure enough there is something glowing red! I read some other threads on this forum, and is it right that the PL1 and PL2 limits cannot be changed? I'm just wondering if I get it to stop throttling.
  3. I'm charging it right now, and at idle it's running at 3.4 GHz. But it changes immediately after I start running prime95. I don't think its power throttling because its using 22-23 watts during prime95.
  4. I haven't thought about that, could be why. Is there a specific program(throttlestop??) or do I go into the BIOS to change the offset?
  5. Decided to undervolt an i5-8250u (Dell XPS 9370) using Throttlestop. I undervolted it 100mv, and then I ran prime 95. Before I ran prime 95, the cpu was running at 3.4 GHz (max turbo) but immediately after I started running prime 95, it went down to about 2.4 GHz. I don't think its because of the temperature, because the CPU package temperature is around 70 C. And, fan speed is medium (I've heard it go way louder). Any reason why this may be happening? Anything related with Speed Shift (Dell did disable speed shift on previous XPS laptops) or does Dell just want to be really, really safe?
  6. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but why would I test if my password is tough to crack by giving it to another website (Password Strength Checker) ? Even if the website is secure, the website knows that this user's password is likely the one they inputted.
  7. Avast is good but it has a bunch of bloatware and other software. Also, (on my old pc) I couldn't turn it off in task manager and i kept on getting notifications.
  8. Also, the SEUS PTGI looks REALLY nice! However, there are some downfalls as some places are so bright, its almost impossible to see what block you're looking at and torches bathe everything in a orange-yellow hue. And the fact that gobbles up frames like cookie monster eats cookies
  9. Dell XPS 9565 It's an all rounder, 2-1, decent battery life with the 1080p model. However, you should watch Linus's review of it. It outlines some flaws (poor webcam placement).
  10. That temperature is for the drive, not the CPU
  11. Thats what I was thinking. Juiecey, are you sure its in fahrenheit? Because, if its that low, your cooling is really good!
  12. Prime95 for CPU stess. HWInfo is good for temp monitoring and hardware.
  13. I've thought about that but removing any electronics didn't make a difference. I've opened it up and the wiring seemed normal.
  14. Hello forums! Randomly, my laptop speakers start making clicking sound very rapidly. It occurs when the volume is set to anything (zero-100). However, it goes away when do one of the following: a) If speaker sound is zero and it starts clicking: I increase the sound then decrease it back to zero. b) If speaker sound is >0, decrease the sound to zero and increase it back to normal These above two methods temporarily stop the clicking (1-2 hours) These clicking sounds are well... clicking sounds. They're really rapid (1000 BPM) and they don't change in volume when I change the volume on my laptop. I've tried restarting the audio driver (Realtek sadly ) and rolling back to a previous one. Nothing; just a temporary fix. Restarting makes no difference. I'm really stumped, any help would be appreciated.
  15. Hello all! I have a pretty old PC (10~ yrs) just sitting in the corner and gathering dust. I'm thinking about restoring it by running Ubuntu on it. However, this PC might have some malware and viruses so I'm wondering if there is a software tool (something like pc decrapifier) for Windows Vista or Windows XP (not sure, will check!) to remove viruses or completely clear the hdd so that I can install ubuntu on it and it will run completely normally. Thanks! Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo 1 (or 2?) gb of RAM (DDR2) Windows Vista or XP (I'm pretty sure its xp but I will check) Ps. - If you know, do you think this pc can run ubuntu pretty well? thanks! p.s.s. - If there is another thread like this one where someone wants to restore an old pc with Linux, can you post the link. thanks!
