    Question High System Interrupts on New System

    Question Undervolting 1080 Ti is hot at Idle??

    Hi, I’ve been getting into undervolting recently and I found it super beneficial with my 1080 Ti Aorus, non-extreme as I like my PC quiet and run my fans on low RPM, due to this the GPU can sometimes hit 80°+ underneath max load. Undervolting made a world of difference as my card is now...

    [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...

    Hello. I have a Zotac GTX 1070 8GB. It always had a low clock speed while idle, but today it's stuck at 1518mhz gpu and 3802mhz memory clock speed. I've had this problem before and I fixed it by doing a clean driver install with DDU. This time it didn't work. Nvidia In game overlay is off and...

    Question Should I Change My Case From Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 to the NZXT H500i?

    Title sums it up pretty well. I'm upgrading my PC soon and I really like the minimalist aesthetic of NZXT's H500i, but I am concerned that my thermals might downgrade since the front panel is blocked. I don't really mind that the case is smaller, but it would be a dealbreaker if my thermals go...

    Question Is it normal to idle at around 30-40% memory usage?

    I have 2 corsair vengeance lpx 8gb sticks running at 2400mhz and I'm using 5gbs of memory or more just idling. I can't find what's causing this in the task manager, however it may be a multitude of things.

    [SOLVED] Ryzen 5 2600 Voltage differences between load and idle

    I have overclocked my ryzen 2600 to 4.0Ghz using 1.2375v in the BIOS. However, recently I saw that in CPU-z, HWInfo, HWMonitor that the Core voltage is shown as 1.232. The strange thing is that on idle in those programs say the core voltage is 1.232 when the cpu is idle or its usage is less than...
