  1. What parameters do I change in my bios to gradually experiment with manual CPU over clock? When I got my pre built, my i75820K was already OC to 4.0ghz up from 3.2ghz. Worked fine. Then recently when I updated bios it was reset. Now when I use MSI “OC Genie”, it either will do a very weak barely OC. Or too much and make me crash. I want to manually try 4.0 ghz again.
  2. tested warranty you mean like you had an issue and they had good support?
  3. So I have a prebuilt Powerspec from microcenter I got in 2017. only thing ive upgraded since then is storage, cooling, and the GPU. I have 16gb ram I want to go to upgrade to 32 or 64gb. my head is spinning from all the different ram manufacturers. people keep saying the much cheaper options will be from companies with "bad binning policies" so I guess I have to stay away from the very cheap brands. Is it safe to assume all the major brands like Corsair, G Skill, Crucial, PNY, (maybe T force) are all equally good if comparing same speed and size? or are there some stand-out hot ram that everyo
  4. I have a x99 quad channel board with 8 slots. currently with 4x4GB(16GB). I am upgrading ram but 2x16GB makes more sense practically right now in case I go to 64GB later also in terms of price. but would my performance drop going from 4 sticks to 2 sticks? I saw a video once that showed 15-20 FPS difference but it was just one person...
  5. i work alot in video editing and after effects and im using 99% of my ram right now and i wish i had more. and i could maybe get by with 32 gb but it would be cheaper just to go for 64 gb instead of getting two 32gb kits down the road. maybe i should just build a more current desktop. new build lol idk.
  6. this is my mobo: https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/X99S-GAMING-7#support-mem-0 I wanted to get this ram kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0171GQNH4/?coliid=I1VBUA35DL91RH&colid=3SJQ6HTD19U53&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Two things though, its not on the list i linked at the top of validated kits. BUT pc part picker says its compatible. pc part picker even says some wild new 5000mhz ram is compatible evne though my mobo is years old and can only go up to 3333mhz ram. who do i trust?
  7. so ur saying if i have quad i should go 2 sticks? or you mean half the slots? i have 8 slots so 4 sticks? whats the point of quad channel board if fastest is 2 sticks?
  8. is less sticks better always? why, but i agree that if i do 2x16, its easier to upgrade to 64gb total later one day IF i need
  9. yeah probably good idea, then i can gauge if i need to upgrade again to 64 or not. now im wondering what kit configuration to get. my mobo has 8 ram slots, currently i have 16gb/4x4GB. i want to go to 32GB (maybe 64 gb one day if need be for after effects). Option 1: get 4 more of the same sticks to bring me up to 32GB, but ill be using 8 sticks, is that or better or worse than 4 sticks? i also wont have slots to go higher than 32 GB then one day so this is cheaper short term but more expensive long term. Option 2: get a 2x16GB kit. saves slots for another set one day to brin
  10. I have an MSI X99S Gaming 7 and an i7 5820K The mobo has 8 ram slots, currently i have 16gb/4x4GB. i want to go to 32GB (maybe 64 gb one day if need be for after effects). Option 1: get 4 more of the same sticks to bring me up to 32GB, but ill be using 8 sticks, is that or better or worse than 4 sticks? i also wont have slots to go higher than 32 GB then one day so this is cheaper short term but more expensive long term. Option 2: get a 2x16GB kit. saves slots for another set one day to bring me to 64GB. BUT i would be using 2 sticks instead of 4. Basically, is run
  11. even when i try quarter preview with frame skip i wish it was faster. some projects with heavy 3d are going like 1 frame every 3-4 seconds even at quarter preview with frame skip. my ram shows 15.5gb/16gb used. and cpu only 40% used. once it finishes through i can play smoothly but i make one tiny change or tweak which is often, then now its slow again. thats why i need to upgrade
  12. im on an i7 5820K 6 core not overclocked, 16gb ram. all storage SSD. im maxing out ram in all projects and previews are very slow. I am trying to decide between upgrading to 32gb or 64gb. 64gb is slightly cheaper than getting 32 now and another 32 in the future.. anyone here upgraded from 16 to 32 GB and thought it was enough ram? or is it never enough ram with After Effects lol more is always better? did you feel like 32GB 64GB made previews play much smoother? i am guessing it would since right now ram is definitely my bottle neck
  13. Here is my options and price breakdown including future upgrades Adding another Vengeance LPX 4x4GB = $109 Now for 32GB total in my system. If I want to upgrade to 64GB down the road all my slots are filled so Id have to take out all my sticks and get a 64gb kit which is $349 for 4x16GB 3000mhz. So if I go to 64gb down the road then the total final price in the future will be $109+$349=$458. If I take out all my sticks and just get 32GB/2x16GB kit it will be $189ish. Then if I want another set like that to have 64GB one day it’ll be another $189, now total $378 long-term. So it
