  1. If you want your CPU frequency to stay at max the whole time instead of dropping down (which is normal in stock scenarios) you either have to fiddle with windows power manager and set it to max performance or lock the frequency in place in bios, whichever works for you. I don't have enough knowledge to assist you further, having only really overclocked one ryzen system up to now - but it's possible to do. Youtube will help you, I'm sure.
  2. PCIe 16x slot at the top of the slot stack has dedicated lanes to the CPU. Storage lanes are also dedicated to the CPU and to not touch unless stated otherwise (depends on the board) As you might know, the vast majority of consumer CPUs support 20 PCIe lanes. 16 for the GPU, 4 for NVME storage. If MB supports more than 1 nvme slot, the bandwidth is often shared and halves if you were to occupy both slots at once. You don't have to worry about bandwidth sharing, as long as the CPU has 20 available PCIe lanes. I believe you should see speeds between 2200-2400 MBps (
  3. I see you've done some good testing, but I'll have to break it to you - even if you don't see 100% on the CPU, it doesn't mean it's not giving it all that it's got. I'm 90% sure that the CPU is your bottleneck. Because it's the CPU that creates all frames for the GPU to render. And older 4 core parts from 8 years ago just don't cut it for 300+ fps. I'm sorry. For high fps gaming, you DO need the latest hardware. Not GPU - but the CPU. My gtx 1070 is bottleneck by my 6700k OCed to 4.7ghz. And heavily. I'm thinking 20% or more high fps scenarios or heavy AAA titles. In
  4. See if other programs report false temperatures. If they do, then 3D Mark isn't bugged. If they show normal temps, then 3D Mark shit itself. It does that sometimes.
  5. if it's a 3 pin fan, it doesn't support the PWM standard or pulse width modulation. You can't pulse voltage through it, only constant voltage. That's why you can't control it the same way as a 4 pin fan.
  6. Look at windows crash log. Might find something useful. Hope it's a driver issue only. What I see here is that GPU failed to compose an image, so the site crashed and gave you a support code. Maybe that's a driver issue, maybe hardware issue. Try to load up the GPU with a synthetic test, see how it holds up. If it crashes, completely uninstall the driver with DDU (display driver uninstaller), then reinstall it. See if the problems persists. I hope it's nothing major. But if that doesn't fix it, you might have a dying card. I might be wrong though
  7. 20 gbps converts to exactly 2500 MBps. So no - you will not see speeds over 3000 MBps. Unless the text on the box is wrong and it supports higher speeds. pcie x4 connection has a theorethical limit of 3940 MBps, which is just shy of 32 gbps. If the motherboard says 20 gbps, then it's probably not the full x4 connection speed.
  8. There are programs that will test for bad sectors on your SSD. When it spikes to 100%, does it transfer a lot of data around or does it just spike the "active time" graph. There's a difference.
  9. First thing I would do is update all components. Next I would put a stress test on every single component individually to see what fails. I would also ensure that all cables are connected properly, and that they come from appropriate ports on the PSU. Just because it fist doesn't means it can carry significant power. See what certain ports on the PSU are rated for power wise. What could also help is look at the Windows crash log, see what happened. Can tell you weather it was a driver issue, power issue..
  10. I'm 100% sure the Intel has a lot more to offer, but because we have no voltage control and multiplier control - we're severely limited in terms of adjustment. I think that all core turbo of 4.3 or even 4.4ghz is possible. But current limit is at 4.2 all cores, and with plenty high voltage. My 6700k can do 4.4ghz at 1.20v or even less, and 10875H is getting 1.25v at 4.2ghz. That's poor shotcalling by intel. I bet there's another 5-10% on the table, for less power. But Intel won't let us have it.
  11. Hello everyone, During my testing, I've discovered a way to trick the system to always run high power, instead of complying with integrated PL1 and PL2 limits. System tested: Dell XPS 9700 (modified, repasted with liquid metal, cooling pad also used) System characteristics: PL2 - 135W, PL1 75W Warning: please don't do this to your system.. If you want this sort of performance, just get the new AMD 5000 series. How to break PL system: In XTU, max out the turbo power boost duration slider, disable PL2. Set PL1 to 135W -> apply Leave wind
  12. I repasted it with liquid metal. It can sustain 115W of load with all cores active - because heat is more spread out compared to only 4 cores active. And it's important to mention - It had thermal headroom to pull more than 95W on 4 cores, but it didn't. So in my testing, T wasn't a problem. It's also important to note that before repaste, it could only sustain about 65W on 4 cores, instead of 95W after LM.
  13. Hello everyone, When running only 4 cores, 10875H behaves like a 6700k, albeit more efficiently. In Cinebench R20, it scores around 2300 compared to 6700K's 2400. (Tested on Dell XPS 9700 with liquid metal repaste) Chip draws around 90-95W in PL2 mode (135 Wmax), and settles at 75W PL1. PL2 allows for frequencies of 4.7ghz all-core turbo as long as the chip is below 85°C, and 4.6ghz turbo for anything above that. PL1 allows for 4.4ghz all-core turbo. Due to high thermal density, CPU hits 100°C after drawing 90 something watts for 30 seconds or so, after whic
  14. You will get lower CPU usage than i5-6500 percentage wise speaking, but overall, more of the CPU will be utilized. You gain fps by having higher CPU usage.
