  1. Thanks for the advise I’ll work on that and update the post if it works out.
  2. So I have a motherboard with 5 aux inputs, pink for the mic respectively. Black for the rear audio, orange for the center and front, and green for the front audio. As it is now I have a soundbar with 2.0 audio and 2 speakers and a sub, when connected into their specific ports I can’t find them in the pop up audio setting on windows. The 3 audio is my tv and 2 Realtek audio devices, both powered on but when clicking the button to play the windows ding no sound is made. There’s nothing I can find In my bios about audio apart from a choice of hd audio and ac97. Some of the cords are using an rca adapter but there is one speaker that is straight 3.5mm aux all the way and even that one is not showing and it’s plugged into the green port which should always work right? It’s really annoying me now, along with the s**tty mobo causing hdmi drop outs every 15-30seconds. PLEASR HELP!!!
  3. Yeah that’s what i though it did and now with having it disabled I don’t really notice any difference in performance so it’s probably best to be left on in my case. Thanks for the help though!
  4. Ahh I thought that might have had something to do with it, I’ve gotten mixed reviews on how it affects gaming. Would you happen to have any experience with it?
  5. I forgot to mention that my cpu is an i7 4770 (non K) and my mobo is an asus maximus vii hero.
  6. I I’m getting about 7-12% usage in “idle” but as it’s a locked chip the base clock is 3.4G but I have turbo boost enabled and am getting 3.8G while idle. Speedstep is turned off. Basically since I have a locked processor all of the “overclocking” features are confusing. Let me explain, some settings say that they should be disabled when overclocking. But as it’s only an intel turbo boost “overclock” is that considered overclocking and therefore those features should be disabled? The power usage isn’t really a problem but why waste power right? I’ve included some photos I hope will help. And if there’s something you notice not related to the issue but that you would recommend changing a setting to that would be greatly appreciated as well.
  7. I think I saw this one but it just never crossed my mind, thanks for sharing it!
  8. From a quick search it looks like it’s only for the k processor and possibly newer locked models but thanks I’ll keep that in mind when I eventually get an unlocked cpu.
  9. I believe my mobo has some of those features, I’m just not very well versed on how and what they do.
  10. Ahh that’s a shame, I guess intel turbo boost is all I’ve really got in the pocket then huh?
  11. I really only got into PCs about 2 years ago but man does it sounds like the golden days.
  12. Thanks for the input! I’ll look into that.
  13. Does anyone know of any ways to improve performance on locked intel CPU’s? Preferably if they apply to lga1150 and the i7 4770 (non K). I’d love to have a better cpu and not have to try to squeeze every drop of performance I can get out of it but i guess it’s just the way she goes boys. I’ve been a pc gamer for coming on 2 years now but not very well versed on the nitty gritty of overclocking and such. So don’t expect me to know what ratios and blck clocks are or anything lol. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
  14. Ahh damn that’s a shame, but thanks for passing that on it definitely saved me a good bit of time lol.
  15. I have an Intel i7 4770 non k version cpu. I’ve heard that you can’t unlock a locked cpu as it’s physical and not a software lock. BUT while doing some quick browsing I stumbled upon a Quora thread where someone said they could coat specific pins with electrical tape or nail polish to allow overclocking on their core 2 duo (think that was the cpu he said). Unfortunately I couldn’t find much else about coating pins other than that post. I know there’s been major changes from the core 2 duo days but I wonder if there are still pins that can be coated which will “unlock” your cpu. As anyone who’s seen an lga1150 pin out you know there’s a TON of different pins with (to the novice tech enthusiast) very confusing signal names to ball #’s. I’ve heard that you can use multipliers and such to get a sort of overclock but mixed reviews on its stability and such. ANY information would be EXTREMELY helpful. Believe me if I could buy a better cpu I would but it’s not financially viable right now lol. Not sure if this will help but I have an asus maximus vii hero mobo. I’ll take any performance increase I can get so any input will be very appreciated. here’s a link to the Quora post if anyone’s interested. https://www.quora.com
