    [SOLVED] What's better for low-end web development (mobile processor)

    Hi! I am getting a low-end laptop for me to use when I go away from my home, or to relax elsewhere rather than my desktop. I was wondering, would a 4 core 1.8GHz processor be better than I 2 core at 2.1 GHz, I'm pretty sure it is the 4 core because it is a better multitasker and the clock speeds...

    [SOLVED] Is there any way to have my CPU throttle down at idle to reduce temps and noise?

    Hello, I just recently built my first PC and am a bit inexperienced in regards to controlling the system. I am running a Ryzen 7 3800x which has a base clock of 3.9 GHz. My issue is that the CPU is constantly running at this clock speed. Now I understand (based on recent searches) that this...

    Question i5 6400 not turbo boosting under load?

    Hi, so I have an i5-6400 for 2 years now. Its base clock is 2.7 GHz and turbo is 3.3 GHz. Recently I found out by looking in the task manager and after that checking in the CPU-Z also, that while I play games my cpu is boosting only to 3.08 GHz and no more. Also when I run a stress test in CPU-Z...

    Question CPU insane clock speed fluctuation - Is this normal?

    Specs: Windows 10 64-bit Ryzen 5 3500U Vega 8 Integrated GPU 16GB DDR4 Single Channel So I don't know if this is normal or not, my CPU's clock speed fluctuates really wildly while in use (sometimes even when it's idle) I use a program called Ryzen Controller, it lets you boost the TDP of the...

    Question R9 390 Clock Speed Dropping Randomly?

    CPU: i5-6600k GPU: R9 390 During Call of Duty Modern Warfare I'm seeing my clock speed drop to 300MHz which causes a massive stutter. I using up-to-date drivers (20.3.1) My temps are fine, always around 55C. The stutter is consistent with the clock speed dip. Also my GPU usage spikes from 0-100...

    Question Undervolt makes my GPU get HOTTER?!

    So after a lot of research and troubleshooting my problems that I mentioned in my previous threads I finally managed to fix it, but now I have a new question, not problem but question... I have noticed that my GPU (Which is an XFX RX 570 4 GB) doesn't reach max clock speed so I decided to...

    [SOLVED] Cannot overclock my GPU it goes back to base clock (RX580)

    I have a Sapphire NITRO+ RX 580 8G GPU and for some reason it wouldn't go over 1250 mhz even though it supposed to go up to 1411 mhz boost clock. I tried to overclock it but every time I set a clock speed and apply it, it instantly reverts back to 1250 mhz. I tried it in Adrenalin and MSI...

    [SOLVED] CPU refuses to go above 900 Mhz

    Hey there. I have had this PC for around 2 years now, and have recently noticed that my PC refuses to go above 900Mhz, no matter what. I've tried running intensive benchmarks such as Cinebench r20, but it just wont go above. Intel Power Gadget, Core temp and task manager all report the cpu...

    [SOLVED] My GPU runs at a max clock of 1605 MHz despite setting it to 1915 MHz. How to fix?

    Hey all - As the title suggests, my GPU (an Asus Dual RTX 2070 Super OC) runs at 1605 MHz according to both GPU-Z and Asus GPU Tweak II, despite clocking it to 1915 MHz in the latter. I remember fiddling around in Nvidia Control Panel to improve my fps in games, however I read somewhere that...

    Question Looking to buy an Xeon CPU for my 1150 board as an upgrade

    One thing I'd like to ask is I will probably go anything over the 1230 v3, the only difference between the higher models is the clock speed by like 100-300 mhz, i think the max is 4ghz. Is it worth the extra £10-40 difference with only 100-300 mhz difference or should I just get the 1230 /...
