    Question SoC vs VDDCR SoC?

    So I have an Asrock B450 Pro4 with the newest bios, in the OC tweaker I have 2 separate voltages both for SoC. One reads SoC Voltage (VID) and the other SoC/Uncore OC Voltage (VID). What's the difference? I'm assuming that the SoC/Uncore voltage is either for cpu's with integrated graphics, or...

    Question Ryzen 5 2600 not performing as it should

    Hello, my ryzen 5 2600 is not boosting to the right clock speeds. (I think) Online is see that their ryzen chip is boosting in games to 3750Mhz. My chip is only boosting to 3625Mhz. In high workloads such as cinebench r15 it is downclocking itself to 3400/3550Mhz. I don't get why that is, the...

    Question Upgrading radiator fan worth it?

    I'm trying to OC my i3-8350k, but at the temperatures my liquid cooler caps out at, I can only get it to around 4.3 GHz. I'm on a budget at the moment, and started wondering if I could just upgrade the case fan on the radiator. Would a faster fan make my liquid cooler more efficient?

    Question What is wrong with my CPU

    Since I bought my i5-6600k, I knew my chip wasn't the best at overclocking. It could never handle an 'average' OC, like other people could achieve with this CPU (for example 4.5GHz at 1.3V). The odd thing about this is that unstable overclocks always hard-freeze my whole PC, instead of BSODing...
