    I have updated the Superpostion Scoreboard. 
    I do not have access to the Valley Benchmark unfortunately.

    agent_x007 got a reaction from svmlegacy in CPU stuck at 39% usage 1.17ghz   
    Just to point out : This MB doesn't support this CPU.
    EDIT : Disable C1E/SpeedStep in BIOS if you can (it's clearly broken as CPU doesn't go higher in clock speed when loaded with benchmark).

    This tool tests if memory cells are damaged/worn out OR if there any issues with SMART.

    It does NOT test if performance is where it should.

    Specsheet : LINK.
    256GB model should get around 1GB/s write speed.

    So no, your drive is limited for some reason (maybe it overheats ?).

    agent_x007 got a reaction from KuyaJustin in GPU USAGE LOW when Playing Games   
    @KuyaJustin If you monitor has issues on 1366x768 (because morons programmed EDID for your monitor), I suggest you try using Downsampling (or "custom resolution" as it's also called).
    Example resolutions worth checking :
    1920x1080 60Hz / 1920x1080 xxHz
    2560x1440 60Hz / 2560x1440 xxHz
    (xxHz is value between 30 and 60 depending on how much monitor can handle)
    I recommend setting resolution scaling on GPU instead of monitor.

    You have to disable DSR for Downsampling to work.

    Am pretty certain that drive doesn't have the boot files for Windows as it was added about 3 years after the windows install.  Have removed it now and gone through a few restart to check everything is in order.

    Good. Windows Boot Manager is always what you should see when you do NVMe installation and that is what should be picked from boot options.
    No further tweaking needed.

    Not double, just "Dual Channel".
    Second kit may decrease max. frequency you can get while OC though, and it always puts more stress on IMC as well.

    How about a CPU/GPU combo so extreme, that graphics card doesn't even see the Fire Strike Ultra test, to be worthy of using full 3D boost clock on ?

    Valid : https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/26532269

    Also, this CPU isn't compatible with Turing (aka RTX) and Volta GPUs.
    Reason : No 64-bit support.

    agent_x007 got a reaction from Overl0rd in How bad is this $5000 PC from 10 years ago?   
    I better comment this, before someone thinks it's all true...
    1) Max. L2 cache you can get for LGA 771/LGA 775 is 12MB (in 2x 6MB slice), there are no Xeon CPUs on this platform that have more than 12MB.
    2) There are no X54xx series CPUs with 12MB of cache and FSB slower than 1066MHz (effective) :
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Xeon/TYPE-Xeon 5400.html
    3) Highest multiplier for E0 revision chip has X5470 (x11 at 1333MHz FSB). Not sure if you will be able to clock it that much higher on FSB side, considering Dual CPU configuration nature of this platform. Also, QX9775 have both base FSB set at 1600MHz.
    4) Pre-Core 2 CPUs are NOT Quad Cores. They only have two cores with enabled Hyper Threading (codename: Presler).
    5) AMD never made "non-true quadcore". Phenom I is monolithic Quad Core design from 2007 (B2 revision). 
    You can even argue it's more true quad core than Core 2 Quad ever was (monolithic die, IMC).
    Q6600 is two Conroe dies in one package (Xeon 54xx are two Wolfdale dies in one package).
    6) Intel did Skulltrail for enthusiasts, but I highly doubt it was made to counter AMD at any point.
    AMD had 4x4 Quad FX platform that was made from 2x Opteron Dual Core CPUs (Four cores/Threads).
    So, one OC'ed Q6600 was capable to compete with it (but not with ALL tasks, since IMC gives really nice boosts to some server stuff).
    7) You don't need all the EFI stuff to boot from SATA3 (LOL)
    PS. @Krisalex
    Like everyone else said : There are no DDR3 boards for Skulltrail (or server stuff, FB-DIMM is the reason). Standard DDR3 is "a thing" that LGA 775 can support via P35/P45/X38/X48 and few cheap chipsets (actually, it's not THAT rare).
    However max. DRAM frequency is limited by effective FSB speed of procesor (1333MHz FSB CPU can only set 1333MHz as max. DRAM Frequency).
    Also, more than frequency itself, tweaking NB is MUCH MORE valuable for latency and effective bandwidth (strap/perf. level/etc.), assuming BIOS has the options for it.

    Things to add :
    1) RTX Titan needed (Titan XP is too old ;D)
    2) NVMe (use those PCI-e slots properly !)
    ^software like DUET or Clover should be enough to make it bootable on this
    [Optane standalone ?]
    3) Won't overheating chipset/NV bridges cause throttling ?
    4) Driver overhead test : RTX vs. RDNA  (which gets more "necked"/can sqeeze more)
    5) 16GB RAM or bust (DO NOT run/test it with again 8GB).
    6) Bandwidth and Latency test on RAM (FSB is worse, but by how much)
    7) GPU usage on 4k and Ultra settings
    8 ) Compatibility with Windows based OC/Tweak programs :
