    Zando Bob reacted to jaslion in Why do FX series CPUs or so well?   
    They were just built different :p.
     
     
    But no really basically just luck in how they were made. The simpler the better really.

    VMware Fusion also supports it. It throws a fit about my CPU, but it does run TPM 2.0:

    Thats helps a lot! https://valid.x86.fr/1bxjqu this is the best I can. its better then before no more input lag while gaming.
     
    When turning on hyperthreading its crashes immediately when windows log in. I will try later that on... Probably not best binned one 
     
    Right, I set vcore to 1.4 with LLC enabled its jumps 1.42~ when cpu loads... Thanks a lot for basics.

    I was running 4.54Ghz on an X5675 for a year or so at around 1.38v IIRC. With 1.4-1.45v you should be able to hit higher, depends on bin ofc and some chips will hit a hard wall and refuse to go any faster. Don't touch the RAM settings (other than to force them as low as they can go to keep stable) until you've got CPU clocks where you want them. 
     
    CPU multiplier is kinda eh, so long as it's on the highish end you're good, 90% of the work is done by BCLK clocks. For high clocks you'll often need 200+ on the BCLK. 
    It'll survive more of the night. You can run 1.45v through these chips for extended periods of time with little issue, hell they'd probably take 1.5v for a while. Not that I'd recommend you put the voltage that high, sticking around 1.38-1.42v, max at 1.45v (depending on your board's LLC tiers, it'll up voltage under load to avoid vDroop, so watch for that), is usually best. 
     
    That's about all the advice I can give, I haven't really messed with any of my X58 stuff for a year or two now.

    You should be able to get way more clock out of an X5675 unless you lucked out and just got a super shite bin, they usually hit at least 4.5GHz very consistently. Unless it's a bin issue with your CPU (which would mean replacing it is rerolling that silicon lottery for a hopefully better result) I'd keep it and go for the faster RAM.

    After some more experimentation, this is probably the highest I can push my X5650:
     
    Cinebench R15: 1,029 multicore @ 4.554 GHz (BCLK: 207, Multiplier X22, Vcore 1.48V)

     
    Cinebench R20: 2,150 multicore @ 4.532 GHz (BCLK: 206, Multiplier x22, Vcore 1.496V)

     
    I need slightly higher voltage to make a successful Cinebench R20 pass compared to R15. If I push any higher I will run into a Catch-22 situation with my current hardware. If I attempt 4.6 GHz or higher Cinebench will simply crash, or Windows will BSOD (not surprising). Raising voltage to 1.5V or above at 4.6 GHz leads to such high temperatures that I will throttle down to around 3.8 GHz or even lower, which is obviously not ideal. I could upgrade my cooling setup further, but my Noctua NH-U12P is already great at 4 GHz, which is my setting for daily use, and I want to remain on air cooling for simplicity. I'm already content as I've seen other people who have lost the silicon lottery and are unable to get their X5650 past 4 Ghz. For $14 Cdn dollars on AliExpress I have matched the performance of a slightly overclocked i7-6700K on paper, and I really cannot ask for any more from this venerable platform!

    Make a Windows 10 install USB drive on another Windows PC and reinstall Windows. 
     
    The result will be a stock Windows install. Any factory pre-installed software from Dell that came with the laptop when you got it will be gone, but it was probably useless anyway.

    well this one doesn't seem to be fake so that's nice, just got to wait a little bit till I can sort a board to see if it's working or not, if not i've got a 2 year warranty on it so I'm golden either way

    Downgrade the motherboard, put some of that money into a better SSD. Also a note on the case, make sure you have space on your desk (or whatever surface you're putting it on) for a cube case, they are surprisingly wide.

    Zando Bob reacted to treydoe in The Ryzen 5700g is VERY impressive for a $350 APU   
    I built this PC for $780 and have really been enjoying it. I have an editing station I use at home with a 3700x, 1080ti, 64gb, and x570 board. This experience I have had with the 5700g has been amazing so far. As for 4k editing, it has held up very well. I was able to overclock my crucial ballistix 3200mhz memory to 3600mhz (turned down in these benchmarks). When my AIO comes in i'll be able to hopefully push the graphics card and processor even harder! 
     
    I have no real gaming benchmarks yet but I have been playing 1080p splitgate, medium settings, at 180 fps!

    Ahh yeah I've been playing with PC stuff for the best part of 13 years now, I know it's a different socket and all, it's more just that I change hardware a LOT as some of the regulars here can attest to 😜 I decided I wanted something new to play with and I found that the skylake-X parts are getting pretty damn cheap now so thought to bite the bullet since I've played with a 2950X already so may as well see what the other end is like and all 

    Yeah, I've still got the 10700k kit to shift and some large ish SSD's too so that'll help on that front so that's not too much of a concern, and there are some good boards about for not a huge amount of money locally so all golden there

    Yeah I was just asking him since he's going from a 10700K to a 7980XE so I wasn't too sure if he knew they were different sockets. I disassembled my X299 rig and upgraded to Ryzen as the IPC performance is much more superior to even a 10980XE (this performed worse than my i7-9800X). I still have the i7-9800X and X299 motherboard just in case. 
     
    Yeah depending on how much you want to spend for features that you need.

    Zando Bob got a reaction from Freakwise in I7-10700KF on Z590   
    1. Assuming BIOS supports it (it should, but double check the OEM page to confirm), yes. Z590 can run 10th/11th gen, same with Z490, just depends on the BIOS version you're running. 
    2. Yep. Only need the single 8 pin, unless you're absolutely smashing voltage through your chip, shouldn't need the supplemental 4. 
    3. Yes. May get a bit hot if you're pushing it but it shouldn't go out of spec.

    You can get around this
     
    if you don’t need/want/care about any of the Intel Rapid Storage technology technologies, you can change the BIOS mode from RAID to ACHI and windows will boot/install fine.

    That's using a Ryzen CPU so you shouldn't need the Intel Rapid Storage drivers.
