  1. The OS provides a layer of abstraction. That'd be like a game not running on AMD CPU's, despite having the instructions. Doesn't mean it'll scale well, most dual socket setups have significant latency between sockets. Similar to Ryzen's CCX vs CCD latencies. Keep in mind, Ryzen is essentially 1/2/4 CPU's in one package. Infinity fabric ties it together. In Intel, that's QPI. Older yet, the north bridge handled CPU's entirely.
  2. Except they can utilize dual CPU's, just not well. I'd be willing to bet if I found an extra cooler for my E5450, all 8 threads would be active. The OS handles the CPU's, it 2x quad cores appears as an 8 core.
  3. Now just imagine the fireball that would be 2 9900KS's in one case.
  4. Can't be a stupid question if industry has already thought of it and is doing it.

  7. Yes. You can use samba on pretty much any linux distro. I use it on an Ubuntu-Server machine. Doesn't take much reasources to run.
  8. If that's the case, why do you have turbo parameters? Looks to me like you've overclocked via turbo ratio limits, which can still downclock to base frequency, or lower if EIST is enabled.
  9. Power limits won't affect stability, rather they tune the Turbo boost of a CPU, making it downclock if the power draw is too high. Ideally if you're having stability issues you'll want to disable turbo boost entirely and run a static clock, then slowly introduce power saving features.
  10. 5°C is going to harm the CPU, and it's smart enough to throttle itself to keep from dying. Your CPU should still live out its useful life.
  11. I mean, at that price point, chromebooks are an attractive option if you can use Google Sheets and Google Docs.
  12. The 1070 ti core is much faster and will outperform. The VRAM is also faster due to a wider bus.
  13. Try it out before you drop pump speed. My H60 1st gen apparent did 4000 RPM, but was whisper quiet.
  14. You'll get wayy better value buying a used GPU than a new 710. Pretty much anything made this decade will boot up Windows 10.
  15. I just take issue when people assume that a CPU can't be overclocked just because it isn't a K-SKU. Case in point: There are still things that can be done to raise performance. The mobo /might/ be able to raise BCLK by up to 5%, but I don't advise that because of data corruption problems on this platform. Whether or not it's an overclock depends on the person. For me, it is. It's running faster than designed. If you get a OEM machine, it will not run at 3.7 GHz all core. This method changes how the CPU handles turbo to increase performance. I understand your point of view as well.
  16. It's not necessarily a power limit, but just how Intel's Turbo Boost works. You can see the peak turbo ratios in the BIOS set there 37/37/36/35 for 1/2/3/4 core. Stock voltage should run it just fine, as AFAIK it's agnostic to which core it's turboing under one core. This means all cores have to be capable of the peak frequency, at the same voltage.
  17. The 3550 in stock configuration will not do 3.7 GHz on all 4 cores at the same time. It's not much, but it does make it a bit faster to do that. A whole 200 MHz, so 5% more performance or so.
  18. CPU is running faster than specifications. What isn't overclocked about that?
  19. Non-K doesn't mean it can't overclock. You should be able to set all cores to the max turbo speed, which will give you a modest bump in multi-core workloads. Shouldn't need to add any voltage on a decent Ivy.
  20. Your overclock is unstable, presumably. You can check the details in Event Viewer. This usually means that there was an instability that was detected and corrected for in the CPU. Is it truly sudden, or is it the first time you've noticed it?
  21. You get better temperatures because you're undervolting it at load compared to stock, which is totally fine. When not in a manual overclock, the CPU will follow it's internal voltage requirements, which are quite aggressive.
  22. My experience is with Zen, but I've found daily overclocking, aside from fclk/memory to be pointless. The moment your drop a manual voltage in, the system locks it in. which means I go from a 1.1 V average daily voltage to a 1.55 V daily voltage (or whatever I set it to be). That's with C&Q and C-States enabled, mind you. The moment the multiplier is adjusted, it also goes into OC mode and the voltage gets locked there, too. I actually max out the turbo of my 1700X without PBO, so I just leave that off anyways. Makes a bigger difference on Zen+ / Zen2, where the turbo acts completely different.
  23. You need at least one in. Most BIOS's will prompt if the ram configuration changes
