    I think of Aida64 as a functional exercise. It can run through some functions to see that the rig is basically working and to check cooling without much risk. However it is neither stressful nor a...

    Ditto, Braegnok. The first clue was when they charged the credit card after weeks of waiting. It took about 15 seconds for me to go from 'Huh?' to 'Hooray!'

    There's a remote chance that you could try again to reposition the bent socket pins and improve the booting. If any one of the pins is actually broken, youi're out of luck. Socket pins are springy...

    DX12 and RTX features don't and won't happen in Win7, neither does AVX-512 even when the CPU does it. Drivers for Intel embedded graphics have been Win10-only since Kabylake. These are enough that...

    Does the preinstalled thermal pad have a protective covering? Many of them have a plastic film that has to be removed before installing in order to make good thermal contact with the GPU. Check...

    A comment on why to include Win 7 support for the latest graphics cards: Competitive overclocking. For the latest cards - GTX 1080, 1080 ti, 1070, 1070 ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti etc - to be...

    The specs look good enough for me. I'll be using something z490 for competitive overclocking and ASUS BIOS has always worked best for me. The APEX approach --plenty of power, single DIMM DRAM...

    Hi and welcome to the forum. I hope the following a) gets access to post and b) helps.

    It would be useful to know the model of motherboard, CPU and the DDR4 RAM - at least the XMP specs of the...

    Thanks for what you can do, cl-Albert. The denial bit me yesterday when I'm sure I could have helped with a memory issue. A user-to-user forum turns into a fail with this sort of bug going on.

    Those professional apps need better stability than Realbench, so do at least OCCT. I had this 24/7 system stable in Realbench, but it would lock up at a critical point in Adobe CS workflow. The...

    OCCT is an actual test. Your results say that OCCT gives a better test in 10 min than Realbench, Aida64 and Prime95 do over hours of hot CPU stress.

    Realbench can serve as a test at the...

    I think the energy burn to make dry ice for a day's use isn't worth it, let alone the cost of equipment. I can go to the nearest grocery and get dry ice for $1.50/lb. There is also an industrial...

    Yeah, enjoying it while I can, but those feeble water-cooled submissions won't rank so high at the end. This is the only contest that is a qualifier for a head-to-head meet with a real cash prize. ...

    It's been a while since I've used my R5E10, so I can't get too specific. That overclock that ran for a long time was pretty good for X99. It doesn't appear that there was much stress on anything. ...

    MRC fast boot works well as long as the RAM OC is stable. The training should come out the same every time, so it can be skipped by setting MRC Fast Boot.

    A clock increase that large without increasing CL is quite a good overclock. The longer training time shows how close that profile is to the edge of what the components can do. HCI memtest shows...

    The concept is 'adaptive' core voltage along with EIST or 'speedstep.' There are so many guides and discussions on setting adaptive voltage in BIOS around the forum, I'll not try to reproduce them. ...

    That ranking is just a matter of luck right now. Something like quantity over quality. When the elite overclockers drop their sandbags in the contests, their quality will swamp me.

    I've wondered how much OC headroom those HOF's have, ttOne. They should be quick at 19-19-19 and high bandwidth at that speed.

    I agree that properly working RAMs on the QVL should boot straight...

    Air cooling is always the limitation, and more so with higher core count. 5GHz may be too high a target. The real culprit is core voltage - heat rises with voltage squared at constant clock speed. ...
