    Question Memory frequency not right and only 8/16 GB usabld

    So I just upgraded my ram from 8gb 2400mhz to 16gb 3000gb. I enabled xmp in the bios and put them on the right slot. In windows the task manager says that only 8 gigs out of 16 are usable and that the memory frequency is shown as 2400mhz. I have a ga-ab350m gaming 3 motherboard with all driver...

    Question RAM not running at correct speed?

    Well, title is self explanatory. Just learned through self study that RAM doesn't really run at correct speed when you put it on your motherboard as advertised even in modern builds like someone says, many don't know this that people are not aware their system is setting them by default where it...

    [SOLVED] 8700k running @4.4-4.7ghz on all cores even while usage at 1-4% ?

    As the title says, my 8700k is running all cores rather high at all times for some reason. Even if everything is closed and CPU usage is at 1-4% the lowest the cores freq drops is about 4.3 but usually its around 4.5-4.6. Temps are not an issue as I have good cooling and the chip has been...

    [SOLVED] Clock speed always the same (Ryzen 5 3600)

    Hi people! So, my recently-acquired Ryzen 5 3600 clocks at 3.6Ghz all the time. I previously had an i5 6600k and before that, an i7 3770; both of which dropped in frequency whenever the system didn't need that much power. Now my 3600 keeps its regular clock at all times, even when idling. And...

    Question Low or high voltage RAM?

    To ask this is a 'newbie' way, "What is better"? Low voltage RAM produces less heat and consumes less energy. While overclocking, what are you looking to do, lower or increase the RAM's voltage? You want to increase it, so you could clock your RAM's frequency higher and have it working at a...
