    Discussion CPU Core Count VS Frequency?

    If you could get a 1.4 GHz CPU with 24 cores, a 2.8 GHz one harboring 12 cores or a 5.6 GHz one with 6 cores which would be your ultimate choice? I personally would go for cores over cycles. The impalpable beauty of more cores resonates thoroughly through lesser heat dissipation and curbed...

    Question How Safe Is To Keep 2666MHz RAM Modules Running At 3200MHz?

    Since the i5-11400 supports it, I went into my mobo's UEFI and bumped the DRAM frequency from the standard 2666MHz to 3200MHz.. The machine booted up fine and is, up until now, working fine. No crashes, no weird behaviors... I know it's just a 534MHz boost... but I thought why not? Can I keep...

    [SOLVED] 2 rams with different speeds running at different speeds

    Hi, I have always thought that different frequency rams would always run at the lowest ram's frequency i.e. having a D3600 and D3200, all ram would run at 3200. My CPU-Z pictures above seem to contradict this idea. See columns XMP-3200 and XMP 3596 (1600MHz is for 3200, and 1798 MHz is for...

    Question i5-9400F refuses to boost to 4.1GHz on a single core.

    As expected, on all 6 cores, the speed never goes above 3.89GHz, which is normal. However, I expected it would reach the advertised 4.1GHz on a single core, but if I run a benchmark of some sort, it will only go to 4.08GHz max, never above that. Is this expected behavior?
