  1. Yes sadly it ia no longer supported and it is form a prebuilt as well... Thank you very very much for your time and effort!
  2. Thank you for your help so far! I have one more question: Where exactly in the BIOS do I turn on XMP? At the CPU config? Or RAM config? I could not find it when searching for the XMP settings...
  3. This is everything the BIOS say in the RAM section... Is it possible that my Motherboard does not support XMP?
  4. Just like that? Seems easy enough. Is there any risk if I change it to XMP? I never changed anything in the BIOS so I am a little nervous about stuff like that... Also: Intel says, that the i7-8700 only supports up to 2666MHz I think. Will this be a problem if I turn on XMP?
  5. So AMD and XMP always work. I have an Intel system with the following specs: i7-8700 (non k) GTX 1060 6GB Motherboard: Medion Z370H4-EM (from prebuilt) RAM: Do you need more specs? If so - please let me know. Unfortenately I do not know thich brand my RAM is from. If you need the brand name, I will open the PC and see what it says on it. EDIT: It says Manuf. Samsung, although I think this is just the Chip and not hte RAM Manuf. if you know what I mean by that.
  6. Can you overclock RAM in the BIOS? And if so - can you overclock every RAM or does it have to be unlocked like the Intel CPUs?
  7. Thank you very much guys! I will just try it out in a few hours when I am back home and see what the bios think about me trying.
  8. Do I post this into the Display forum? I don't know... Anyways: I have a dual monitor setup with a GTX 1060 and an i7-8700 (non k) as my hardware. Right now I have both Outputs from my GPU. Could I technically get one output from my motherboard for my secondary monitor to watch YouTube/Netflix etc. and one Output from my GPU for my main monitor to play games? I think this would decrease my GPU load and maybe give me 5 extra fps on my main monitor... So my questions: Would this work? Would I still be able to move my mouse from one monitor to the other? And would it actually be useful/
  9. Thank you for all the infos! 2GHz is actually really good for a 1070, especially with these temps... I am very impressed.
  10. Thank you for the info and the video tip! I will check it out as soon as possible. I also aim for the lower to mid 80°C as my max temp under a full load. Maybe I will get under 70°C in games with my new cooling equipment.
  11. Yes - the Voltage is what kind of makes it sound scary in my opinion. but with the new PSU, Thermal Paste and Cooling I will definetly be able to pump up the power limits without hitting my temp limits. Memory speed also sounds very interesting. I will watch a few videos about that too and see what fits good for my PC. Thank you!
  12. I actually use Afterburner to watch my temps. Although I never touched the clockspeed or similar. If I overclock I will definetly do it with Afterburner. Also thanks for the idea/info with FurMark, I sure will check it out!
  13. Oh that could be very interesting, sadly with Covied right now everything is closed here in my country... I think I will justt watch a few overclocking tutorials/guides and see if I feel comfortable enough to try it myself. Thanks for helping me out!
  14. Well with risk I meant the risk of my stupid ass killing my GPU since it would be my first OC. I know, when done right, there is no risk. The risk is me not doing it correctly... But as you said - if I do small tiny steps - there should not be any risk. Also, the "voltage go BRRRRRRRRRR" made my day haha thank you very much.
  15. Is it worth overclocking GTX 1060 6GB? I got a new case with MUCH better cooling and a new PSU with more power than before. I also applied better thermal paster on my GPU. Now I should have the power and cooling to OC my GTX 1060 6GB. But is it worth the risk or is it worth it for the extra FPS? Would i even get noticable better FPS?
