  1. OK, thanks! New to all of this, so I'm glad there's forums!
  2. I actually didn't see that
  3. So if I put it to near max utilization I would get a higher clock speed? If so, how would I test that? Is there a software for that?
  4. It's during the Folding@Home workload, and getting about 40% utilization
  5. So I'm running a 2600x with it's stock cooler, but getting between 2-3 GHz (it's base speed is 3.6 GHz). I have an MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard and a Corsair RM850x. Not sure why this should be happening, any ideas? By the way, I am aware that an 850 watt power supply is overkill for a 2600x, but its all I could find due to coronavirus.
  6. So I was playing Cities Skylines and opened up MSI Afterburner to check FPS, utilization, temps, etc. I was getting 20-30 FPS, on a brand new PC (that I built) on low settings. My CPU and GPU usage were very low, and so were their temps. Can anyone explain this? Why is my CPU and GPU only getting 20-30% utilization at 40 degrees? This could be an incredibly stupid question, but I'm new to this.
