  1. The Windows 10 licence hooks into the hardware (mainly the motherboard) of your system. If it recognizes the hardware has been changed it will need to be reactivated again.
  2. The problems regarding the program "not responding" are very likely down to the insufficient amount of RAM in your system. 4GB total is simply not enough to run Davinci Resolve. 16GB is recommended, but you'll likely see big improvements already by upgrading to 8GB. The X5675 would be a very nice upgrade and will definitely help, but adding more RAM should be your priority.
  3. Intel Quick Sync of the Haswell generation does not offer VP9 decoding, hence everything will be done by the CPU.
  4. It's not an ideal situation, especially since the rear case fan has no filter, but you what you could try first is reverse the airflow. So the rear fan and top fan as an intake, then through the CPU cooler and out through the radiator. In that way you could at least verify that the radiator as intake is not the culprit.
  5. The is no "minimum". Ideally you always want your GPU to be fully utilized, not your CPU. So it can be anything; HD5450? SLI RTX Titan? Bottleneck all depends on the application and the settings used.
  6. Most likely a bug in HWinfo, more people on Reddit are reporting that their chips are recognized as such. https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ci526p/3900x_engineering_sample/
  7. Finally had some quality time with the SR-2, managed 4.53GHz on the dual X5675s at 1.475V under air cooling.
  8. 1.38V would be amazing for that frequency! If you do find that HDD I'd love to know. I'm always interested in old OC stuff, send me a message!
  9. Awesome, yes Skulltrail needs some OC for sure. 4.4GHz is a lot for those chips, what voltage were you running? On air I've had mine at 4.2GHz with 1.42V and that was pretty toasty already.. These did indeed got near 6GHz on LN2 https://hwbot.org/submission/703152_delex_cpu_frequency_2x_core_2_extreme_qx9775_5586_mhz super awesome stuff, but I wouldn't recommend it with boards this age now ? I believe Intel showcased them at 5GHz at some piont as well. Oof sorry to hear about your SR-2, they are very fragile for sure....
  10. I haven't sent him my boards. If you sent him your stuff (top job for doing so by the way!) it should certainly be yours.
  11. Overl0rd from the forum here thanks for the shout out at the beginning @LinusTech, I’m happy to have been of assistance ? Awesome that this obscure platform is getting some love again! A couple of points I would like to mention: -While the QX9775 CPUs are the most awesome way to go on this platform. It will work just fine with regular 771 Xeons and back then a TON of people went that route. The board will also work just fine with a single CPU. Especially the CPUs with a 1333MHz FSB have great OC headroom (as 5400 chipset runs out at around 430MHz bus speed) and could potenti
  12. I mean, the title is "10 ways Mac OS is just better"
  13. In certain heavily multithreaded games it might help going from 4c/8t to 8c/16t. However fundamentally the bottleneck is caused by the older CPU architecture, lower clock speeds and memory bandwith. Adding cores might help a little here and there, but it's not going to resolve the bottleneck.
