  1. I have an Acer Aspire 5 515-51G I bought it and after repasting I tried to enter BIOS. Try to figure out how that turned out. Half an year later I still can't access my BIOS. Tried BIOSPW.ORG, can't even get the laptop name right MOBO: KBL CHARMANDER-KL Bios InsydeCorp (no info on the internet about BIOS passwords) v1.21 Thank you!

    Sadly.

    Laptop RAM overclock

    I have an Acer Aspire 5 i7-8550U 4GB Soldered + 4GB on a stick 2400MHZ So 2 questions Overclocking laptop RAM through software possible? OR If I buy a 3200mhz stick will it downclock to 2400mhz? BIOS Locked from factory. Thank you! (Also please don't question "WHY?")

    Any way do disable soldered RAM? If I remove it physically? Software? (X) Doubt No BIOS as mentioned.

    Will this work if it is an EEPROM chip?

    This mobo doesn't sport a CMOS battery but the laptop has a hole in the bottom for a BIOS reset. No it doesn't help I think its an EEPROM chip.
  7. I can only say I wish.
  8. So I have my laptop from 6 months and one of the biggest problems is that it took me very long time to understand how it works since I had a Core2Quad before. The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5 515-51G i7 8550u 1.8-4ghz 8GB DDR4 2400Mhz (4gb soldered) nVidia MX150 65W system (Power Brick) So the clocks are different depending on the workload. For example until power limit 1 kicks in in the middle of the benchmark in cinebench the CPU (Stock) works on 3ghz and drops to 2.3/4ghz when PL1 (Power Limit) kicks in. So PL2 is 30W being supplied to the CPU And PL1 limits it to 15W (stock). With Aida64 every hope for Turbo Boost is lost. In CS:GO (Tweaked voltages) The CPU has one core on 90% at most which is still 100% the others at 50%-ish , and the clocks at 15W are from 2.9ghz (All Cores) to 3.2ghz. My question is, How do I unlock the Power Limit? 25-30W is more then enough for me. I think that if the VRM can supply it, why not all the time? I can provide adequate cooling anyways. Im using Throttlestop and only voltage adjustments seem to work. I'll post them but I dont think the measurements are accurate. My laptop is modded. No BIOS its locked from the factory i suppose. I've cut holes and added extra heatsinks with Artctic MX-4 with some added fans and it works great! Ill post a pic if anyone is interested. Also I have a PCI-E 4X Slot on it. Thank you in advance!

    Cleaning 2 week old thermal paste?

    i think I heard it either from LTT or GN but im not sure

    I stand corrected

    Cleaning 2 week old thermal paste?

    Alcohol vaporizes really fast so you dont need to wait for the water on the cpu to vaporize and also it kills bacteria that would be bad for even spread across the IHC. Or take note from Radeon VII and use a thermal pad kappa.

    RAM/RAM Speed

    Doesnt matter

    Any type if spirit alcohol works, the idea is that you kill the bacteria with it.
  14. And what is the CPU? If its not an i7 4790/K Vega tier gpu's are overkill for gaming i suppose
  15. If you have a PCI-E slot which I bet you do you can, but why Vega? Too much price for that performance.
  16. Intel is a very big sponsor for CS GO Coincidence? *tinfoil hat*
  17. Dont forget to copy your save games! You can wipe only the install disk which windows is on, C : by default or copy your games if they are on C : to another drive.
  18. Yup, but I think you still need installation media, you can get it for free on Microsoft's site. You will need a USB drive. https://www.microsoft.com/bg-bg/software-download/windows10 Its in Bulgarian sorry. Post here if you still have issues I'll get you covered.

    Information needed, i7 U Processor

    Thank you! And also yes all budget Acer laptops I have seen have inadequate cooling. And as I said I've installed extra heatsinks and when I use both the GPU and CPU on 100% in CS:GO the temps are 65-75ish at 2.8-3.1ghz! But yea go PC and no AMD Thank you

    Is these specs good for a budget computer :)

    No Video Card or is it just me? Which country is it, because prices can be very different. Dont rely just on a integrated gpu. As the other fellow said for CS GO and LoL its gonna be fine (if you have a separate video card)
  21. Its probably not a hardware problem. If it is (which I doubt) it may be memory that you cant test with memtest or by just trying each slot with each stick. But its probably a software issue

    Is modding the BIOS an option? And if the VRM can supply up to 44W for 3,4 secs does that mean it can do it all the time or is it just peak power

    So undervolting the dGPU wont give a performance boost for the CPU?

    Well I have an i7 and it's good enough for an gtx1060 or rx480 egpu. Its just that I want that juicy Cinebench score.

    Specific games? I know Intel CPUs are expensive but their single threaded performance is better than AMD's. Depends on the game. AMD CPU's benefit alot from RAM speeds, so keep that in mind. Also what Video Card are you going to use? Make sure your PSU has enough watts!
