  1. I'm not sure aside from checking for physical damage
  2. Because of the flex, maybe it doesn't work anymore. But un-flexing it can cause even more problems so that's not what you want to start with. If you restart the system without the GPU and then start it again with the GPU, see if you can impose a really strict power limit on the card.
  3. Voltage override should set the vcore directly if I recall, I could have sworn the gigabyte bios settings for offset was labeled differently. But I could be mistaken. I don't believe you can access the individual speeds for specific cores, but you should be able to change the per-core speed. That is, the CPU already knows what the best cores are so those will be the high clockers, and if you reduce the single core boost it will cut that speed. But the all core boost should be the same. LLC is something you should experiment with a bit. You can often squeak out some slig
  4. I guess my explanation was poor. Load line calibration will give you extra voltage when your CPU is working to compensate. Setting it to "low" or "medium" will sprinkle on a bit of extra voltage when needed. Combined with a reduced 1 core and 2 core speed in the BIOS, and a low voltage setting, I have found that this often leads to reliable stability in a lot of cases, with reduced thermals. Also, instead of a negative offset, simply set the vcore manually. Since you're already checking the vcore in windows, you know what your CPU is working with so you can choose a num
  5. You could set the LLC to low or medium because those will reduce the vcore dynamically (depending on how you have it set) and it might let you set the voltage less high.
  6. you should run the CPUs without the lapping first to see if the temps are reasonable
  7. If an external OS is practical for your uses, that could be something good.
  8. Are you sure the games didn't change graphics settings with the new card, causing a performance difference?
  9. 10Gb/Sec is useful for performance SSDs. It's also just a better standard physically than other USB formats, quite a lot more durable than micro B and reversible, more compact than USB A Thunderbolt was a premium Intel standard until 2019, when it was added to the USB4 standard
  10. I recommend having a look at independent PSU reviews for units in the price bracket you are looking at, across every brand here's a good starting point for general comparison:
  11. the setting will appear for amount of cores disabled in the CPU settings. Perhaps toggling one core disabled will make the last 4 cores visible?
  12. yes, but if the system doesn't let you manually delete them you will have to use CMD https://endurtech.com/remove-protected-hard-drive-partitions-with-windows-10/ I also recommend you delete all of the partitions, and then create one large partition so that the whole volume is together.
  13. Been gaming on a GTX 750 ti, with 2GB of vram. It is enough for me.
  14. Does sleep mode cause the same problem? If not, does leaving the PC on for an extended period prevent the issue from happening?
  15. I believe chromium edge also has hardware acceleration
  16. Make sure to use the quote button so we can see your responses In chrome, is hardware acceleration enabled? If it is, toggle it off. This might help. Also, this problem sounds a lot like the multi-monitor issue that is the persistent plague of graphics drivers (predominantly Nvidia). When you have a high refresh rate monitor and a 60Hz monitor, a YouTube video will desync the audio on the 60Hz monitor more and more over time (usually while gaming). Not sure if this applies to your situation.
  17. You should take the bracket off and check for damage. You might have to replace it. I think OP is referring to the motherboard's backplate as a "bracket" and it broke during the CPU cooler installation
  18. Probably one of the most unique problems I've seen. If I had to guess, I would say either a firmware problem or a PCIe defect. If you can find a 980 BIOS, try a flash.
  19. Your colors might be a little muted. Change the color settings to get less dull colors. I've had a few monitors come through that are grey to start with, but if you change the settings either in the monitor and/or in your graphics settings you might fix it pretty easily.
  20. I don't recall if the vcore on that motherboard is an offset. Prime 95 crashed but what did the voltage show when sitting idle?
