RAM: Kingston FURY Beast 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-5600
Hello everyone, I come to you because I have a problem overclocking my processor and I can't find the solution. I overclocked my processor from the BIOS by increasing the voltage as well as the multiplier of it. Overclocking is stable on OCCT as well as cinebench so far so good.

I recently "finished" (still waiting for new ram kit to arrive) a major upgrade for my build and I've been noticing extreme temp spikes without much CPU usage % (meaning during these spikes, usage percents don't go up).
This is rather concerning because temps go way higher than they...
Hi! I just want to know if this is normal. I just notice while watching HWMonitor for 10mins straight (idle),
my idle temp is around 27c~30c but there is one time or 2 times that the temperature spikes to 44c then go back to 28c instantly,
and I saw that the Windows 11 widget process suddenly...
Hi I'm building a new PC, my first choice for cooler is Noctua NH-D15,
but when we try to put the cooler, there is not enough clearance with the case and the RAM,

I'm looking to upgrade my PC so that it can handle 4k@60Hz video playback, video editing, internet browsing, MS365 applications and enable an upgrade to Windows 11. (I don't do any gaming at all).

Intention to buy an Intel 12700K CPU and mainboard MSI Z690 tomahawk DDR4 Wifi.

Otherwise it is very important for me to have a very, very quiet PC with fans barely noticible. Target is 700 rpm for silent wing 3 fans in case and...
I have an I7-12700K with an Asus B660M TUF Gaming Plus Wifi D4 motherboard. I also have 2 nvme SSD and 2x16GB DDR4 3200 RAM installed. No dedicated VGA.
For cooling first I used an Arctic Cooling 34 eSport Duo. The idle temperature was quite good 25-26C in a room with 24C in a Be Quiet DX500...
I'm new to the overclocking world. I went for msi z690a wifi d4 version after looking at the reviews saying this was the best board for the price. I have 12700K installed on it.

Hi, i finished me pc upgrade and now i am looking for an OC guide. I found one 5min video on Youtube but he is using 1.425v and a lot of users in the comments are saying this is an extremely high number and there is a risk that the cpu can be damaged.
MSI Z-690A Pro DDR4
I have been planning on upgrading from i3 6100 to i7 12700k. I have a humble AMD RX 570 (not to be confused with 5700) GPU which I do not wish to upgrade for the simple reason that I would have to spend extra cash on new case, cooler, motherboard and RAM.
Of course I could buy a cheaper CPU and...
