    Question Overclocking a GT 610 without fan, is it safe?

    Hey! Is it safe to OverClock my GT 610 2GB without a fan? As the GPU doesn't have a fan, I can't control the fan speed in the MSI afterburner. How hot should a GT 610 run while playing games anyway? CPU has a fan, and the case has a fan too (Model Tacens ALU III)

    Question Does RAM speed affect iGPU performance ?

    As we know iGPU uses shared memory as their vram and that shared memory is taken from system's total RAM. So if I increase the frequency of my ram, will it boost my iGPU's performance? Btw what's the clock speed of GTX 1650's vram?

    Question 8 gb(2x4gb) only shows half the value. Feel like I tried everything.

    8 gb(2x4gb) only shows half the value I checked cmd, Windows, and BIOS. They all show 4gb installed. It all started when I suddently got huge frame drops while playing COD: Warzone. I then realised my total ram had gone from 32gb (8gb(2x4gbx)x4 slots) to 16gb. I have tested every single stick...
