  1. Re: OC problems. CPU-Z disagrees with bios settings

    This is normal behavior when CPUs are idling. There are multiple clock speeds the CPU can step through at low load levels.



    I haven't used Real Temp, so I can't speak to the accuracy of its...

    I went from an 8K3A right to an NF7 v2.0. I haven't appreciated any newer boards as much as those. The NF7 adorns the wall above my workbench, and I just noticed some of the caps are bulging, so...

    Re: Slow SSD

    Do you have any other indications the SSD is slowing down? You can use a benchmark like HD Tune or CrystalDiskMark to see if the SSD is performing in the ballpark of where it should be. In many cases...

    Re: Slow SSD

    What model is the SSD? See if there are firmware updates available--this is a known issue with some older Samsung drives.

    Re: Firefox Quantom, Build 57

    I've been using Firefox since Firebird 0.7, other than a one-month fling with Chrome almost a decade ago. The changes in 56 and 57 are the biggest improvements I've seen in years! I love the new...

    Re: Computer build

    Solid build. I really like that case and power supply. That CPU is nice and zippy for a dad-build, but its bang-for-the-buck is pretty low. $45 more gets you a quad-core i5-7500 which turbos to...

    Re: PC build for World of Warcraft

    Last year I built a couple systems specifically for running WoW, and used AMD APUs. The last one was an A10-7860K, which I built in Nov. 2016. It's perfectly adequate to run WoW at 1080p, and I'm...

    Some of those networks have free channels on Roku, but I think it's just a handful of on-demand episodes, not the live broadcast. Most of those networks are on PlayStation Vue and DirecTV Now. I...

    Interesting result! I would have expected an I/O related issue, possibly storage drivers.

    I had this happen on one of my Win10 systems recently. I rebooted and it cleared up, haven't seen it since. I chalked it up to a video driver fault.
