    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from Somerandomtechyboi in Help With My First PC Part List   
    Some can, some can't. The XMP profile does not provide the information you need to determine if it will or won't. You would need information about the Chips and PCB.
     
    My 4x 8GB Samsung B-die 3200Mhz CL14 kit would do 4266 if I loosened the timings enough. I get better latency at 4000Mhz, so that's where I run them.
     
    Of course. RAM voltage has more effect on timings than speed, while IMC related voltages have more effect on speed than timings, generally speaking.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from Downkey in Help With My First PC Part List   
    To elaborate on the why @Downkey chose these parts:
     
    CPU: The 5600X is just straight up better than the 3700X. It's newer, and the extra price is worth it.
     
    CPU Cooler: The 5600X comes with a suitable one. You can add one later if you want.
     
    Motherboard: B550 is a newer chipset than B450. The Aorus Pro is also of higher quality.
     
    Memory: The kit you picked would likely not work with your chip (4000Mhz) and was over priced. 3600Mhz CL16 is recommend for Ryzen 5000 series, but 3200Mhz CL16 provides most of the performance at a discount.
     
    Storage: The WD black drive you chose is over priced, and the WD Blue SSD you chose was SATA, not NVME, so much slower. An A2000 as a boot drive and a Barracuda as a storage/games drive is a much better combo, and for cheaper.
     
    Case: The airflow in the one you chose looks poor based on the closed off front panel. The MB311L is much better and is pretty cheap, too.
     
    Power Supply: EVGA BQ, is not very good. Don't cheap out on the PSU. The TXM series is high quality.
     
    Case fan: Is good.

    You can use sata extender cables if you want to fry your system :p.
     
    But for real just get like a cheap seasonic focus plus modular psu or the corsair cx550m or something. Then you can buy some extra cables for those drives.

    Switched out the RAM for 3600 CL16, switched out the 2X 1TB NVME drives for a single 2TB drive with DRAM cache. Switched out the Gigabyte P-GM(known to explode) for the Revolution D.F. Removed the GPU altogether because it's pointless even adding it to this list. You'll have to just grab whatever you can get your hands on.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from Stahlmann in Changing monitor resolution from 1600x900 to 1920x1080 but keep the 75fps refresh rate? In the display settings, it won't let me go past 1600x900   
    TVs are required to accept a 1080p signal in order to be compatible with Blu-ray players, cable boxes, etc. TVs with fewer pixels have hardware or software implementations for scaling the incoming 1080p signal down to the resolution of the TV, usually 720p. The TV reports to your GPU that it is compatible with a 1080p signal, that is why it shows up as an option for your TV.
     
    For the best image, you should send a native resolution signal to your TV. Windows will usually put a "Recommended" next to whatever that resolution is.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from scolioso in Ram Frequency wont show up in CPU-Z and states the wrong type   
    2666 is the JEDEC standard. You'll see in the SPD tab there is an XMP profile. This is technically an overclock.
     
    You should be informed that there is essentially 0 chance that you are going to be able to run your RAM at 3600Mhz with an R5 1600. IIRC, 2933Mhz-3200Mhz is the fastest that chip will be able to push.
     
    This means that what likely occurred, is that your motherboard reset to default settings after it failed to POST at 3600Mhz. Thus you are running at 2666 after setting XMP.

    I see you have the "vintage edition" of CPU-Z. Get the latest standard version.
     
    What you should try is going into the BIOS and enabling XMP like before, but this time manually set the speed down from 3600Mhz to maybe 3000Mhz. If that works you can try 3200Mhz.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to Boomwebsearch in Buying a UPS   
    Depends on how much runtime you are wanting to have and what other equipment you are going to connect to it (ex. monitors, modems, routers, servers, etc)?
     
    Please mention the country that you are going to be shopping from and using the UPS, really no need to get any more precise than that.
     
    Great question, power outages won't damage the hardware itself (OS, program, and file damage is possible). Power spikes/surges and under voltages can definitely damage hardware, I would recommend a line-interactive UPS if your budget allows it because it will filter the current before passing it through to your hardware. A good surge protector at the very least.
     
    For most users (who aren't doing anything mission critical), a good surge protector should be sufficient. You can always repair the operating system and standard programs (ex. Google Chrome, AutoCAD, Premiere, etc).

    Assuming you mean 16GB, then there is no compatibility problem. Whether it's a cost-effective choice is another question entirely.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to MageTank in can a cpu handle higher clock speeds in dual channel?   
    Everyone in this thread is correct, though I'll try to explain things a bit more in-depth while still keeping it a bit simple for the sake of understanding. The max memory speed supported by your processor is 1333mhz as noted on Intel's ARK page: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/53450/intel-core-i5-2430m-processor-3m-cache-up-to-3-00-ghz.html

     
    It also lists the max number of memory channels your processor supports and the max bandwidth that can be achieved by this memory configuration. This page implies that your CPU can officially support 1333mhz in dual channel with a maximum bandwidth of 21.3GB/s (1333 x 8 x 2 = 21,328MB/s or 21.3GB/s). It's important to note that these "limits" are defined by Intel and does not include overclocking beyond their specifications. It's also important to remember that these clock speeds are specifically in regards to what the CPU's memory controller is rated for and have nothing to do with the operating frequency of the processor.
     
    It's not so much that programs are reporting "different things", but rather they are conveying the same information in two different ways. @Kilrah& @HairlessMonkeyBoyhit the nail on the head here and it's really a matter of preference as to how one chooses to view or define memory frequency. Some will query WMIC MEMORYCHIP GET SPEED, while others will query WMIC MEMORYCHIP GET CONFIGUREDCLOCKSPEED. If you run those two queries, you may get different results entirely. Here is my work computer for example:
     

     
    My actual memory frequency is 1200mhz, but it operates at 2400MT/s. We would call this a 2400mhz "effective clock" for simplicity sake. 
     
    As for whether there is a performance difference, the answer is yes. As others have stated, dual channel offers up to twice the theoretical memory bandwidth as single channel, though it's important to note this doesn't mean your everyday applications will double in performance. Not everything is sensitive to memory bandwidth and having more than what you need typically doesn't help all that much. Latency is always nice to reduce, but that is an entirely different topic. I would say typical gains from dual channel in gaming/typical use would range from 5-15% depending on the workload and in more bandwidth intense workloads you'd see far more extensive gains.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from Mel0nMan in can a cpu handle higher clock speeds in dual channel?   
    You seem to have a deep misunderstanding for how memory speed works. The simple answer to your question is that there is no difference between dual and single channel in terms of what the CPU supports.
    Dual channel is faster than single channel by nearly double, but it does not operate at a different frequency.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to Chris Pratt in Freesync = Gsync compatible?   
    As long as it's FreeSync Premium or Premium Pro it should work just fine. Older just FreeSync monitors have more issues. There's never any guarantees, though. You should always check reviews for the specific monitor you intend to buy first. Something like G-sync issues will be called out.
  24. Agree
    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to Morgan MLGman in Freesync = Gsync compatible?   
    It will most likely work without issues, but it isn't guaranteed. That's basically how it is now with Nvidia GPUs and FreeSync monitors that aren't on the G-Sync Compatible list.
