  1. Question My 3060 ti not hitting maximum TDP (100%) in tests and gaming

    In FurMark, I get an average of 169 FPS with GPU Benchmark 1080p. The GPU frequency during testing in Furmark does not exceed 1410 Mhz, judging by the graphics. When viewed in GPU-Z, the frequency drops from 1740 to 1410. If I turn on the 720p test, the frequency rises to 1515 mhz. In MSi...

    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...

    Question Difference between Intel Speed Select vs Speed Shift vs Speed Step?

    My understanding was Speed Select Technology (SST) - Incorporating SST-CP/BF/TF where specific cores clock higher and reduce lower priority, P1 of specific cores increased and reduces for others and high turbo frequency P0n reduces for others respectively. What exactly controls this? Speed...
  5. [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...

    [SOLVED] Does PBO's overclock frequency apply to all cores?

    Good day, This question just popped out of my head, if PBO (the automatic overclocking feature of AMD) is enabled on Ryzen processors, does it mean that the overclock frequency that PBO can provide the CPU apply to all cores?

    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?
