    Question Why do we arbitrarily decide to reference GHz or MHz?

    Hi all, Not sure there's an answer, so set as a discussion vs a question. Random thought of the day, Why do we arbitrarily decide to reference GHz or MHz for any given product? With the rumoured leaks of Big Navi (that I'll believe when I see!), it's being reported to peak at 2.2-2.4GHz...

    Question can I make my CPU run at regular speeds while having max processor state capped?

    When I have my max processor state capped, the speeds my system is able to run are capped too. 95% cap only lets me run at 2.09GHz, 99% cap only lets me run at 2.19GHz while my CPU is capable of turbo boosting to 4GHz. When I uncap it, I have power limit throttling issues and a lot of CPU...

    [SOLVED] Best CPU speed for gaming in 2020

    Hi. I'm beginning to build my new gaming PC. Last one I made was in 2014. So many things have changed. Currently, my research has concluded that a good CPU for a medium build, is the Intel i5 10600k. Although I don't intend to overclock, I'm considering it, but may also consider the i5 10600...

    Question CPU 8700K Speed vs Performance

    Hi, I would like to know if lowering a CPUs speed could increase temps because the workload it could accomplish is diminished so it has to work harder then when it was at a higher speed like 4.5GHz vs 4.7GHz??? Btw, the voltages are with in .20mv so not much difference their.

    Question does the cpu need more raw watts to operate at the same ghz when hot?

    if a cpu porfming at a specific speed (3.5 ghz for example) would it need the same watts (80 watts for example) to operate at this speed when the cpu tempeture rises? (just talking about the cpu)

    Question CPU core speed always near max

    I recently built a brand new computer with an Intel i9-9900K and an Asus PRIME Z390-A, and am having some issues with the core speed. BIOS has been reset to default after I had made some brief changes to it and it has not fixed the issue. Speedstep and turbo is enabled. I notice in my Open...

    Question I9 9900 @ 4.9GHz with H100x Temperatures

    I’ve recently got an overclocked PC with an i9 9900 running all cores at 4.9 with a H100x AIO. I haven’t had any problems with stability or games when using it. After a crash in one game (turns out its just a regular crash, nothing more) I decided to start running some stress tests on the PC...

    Question Does overclocking have to be "maxed out"

    Hey, I'm just wondering that if I were to overclock my 9900k, would I have to overclock it to 3.6 to 5ghz or could I, for example, set it to 4ghz?

    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 /...
