  1. Are you buying in the united States
  2. If that is stable, and the secondary timings are good too (so it doesn't say 18-25-25-58 like it would in the screenshot you shared earlier) then that is quite good performance.
  3. The green ones are recommended. Long story short it's better for stability at high speeds. In the BIOS, though some settings may not take. You can if you like, and then test games tomorrow.
  4. surprised that it booted in dual channel at that speed. Stress test with your favorite games for a few hours, see if they crash. No doubt they'll have better performance due to the dual channel configuration but you should definitely try to lower the latency. If you can manage to get 3200MHz CL16 or 3600MHz CL18, that's quite good.
  5. yeah usually it's fine, but it can be annoying to plug into a fan header that has no pre-defined fan curve so keep that in mind, and in general it's a good idea to turn the PC off anyway cause you don't want to bump your hands into PC components that are operating (typically other spinning fan blades)
  6. please use the quote button or we won't get a notification if they're both in the same channel, they are in single channel. What you want is one in channel A and one in channel B. Going from your diagram, DDR4_1 and DDR4_2 are the best slots to use. The farthest right, and the one two slots to the left of it.
  7. make sure to quote us so we can see your responses gaming FPS is probably the most practical way CL 26, ouch. You might end up with worse performance. And single channel? That's no good. Make sure the ram dimms are not placed next to each other in your motherboard.
  8. what does CPU-Z say in windows, what stress test did you use to verify that you improved in performance
  9.

  10. Such a large difference between these processors, the i7 costs a lot more and has 2 extra cores, plus faster single core speed. But "which is better" shouldn't be the main consideration. If buying the 3600 saves you money enough to get a better graphics card, the 3600 is a better choice.
  11. Proprietary interfaces are uncommon (from small time manufacturers), the standards that the majority of devices use are 12v RGB and 5v ARGB, as mentioned above they're 4 pin and 3 pin.
  12. Worth it. I've given it as a gift, used it myself, really nice premium tool kit
  13. Nvlink was publicized at the same time as the 20 series, with its own connector, and basically the exact same requirements as SLI
  14. If there were some kind of firmware problem with the GPU, you could attempt a flash (though personally I've never poked around for laptop GPU firmware) You could reach out to customer support and see if this is an issue with some known troubleshooting steps from them I hate to say it but due to the age you might just have some defunct hardware.
  15. This combo fan/rgb hub might be something that helps a lot https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwi0hJmdqIPwAhXAbW8EHYfxDyMYABAFGgJqZg&ae=2&sig=AOD64_0sXRsXPTa840HhGFsfZSerfTZkFA&ctype=5&q=&ved=2ahUKEwix_4-dqIPwAhUJVc0KHYqMAuwQwg96BAgCEB4&adurl=
