I fucking wish there were no games on PC man. I've wasted 320 hours of my life playing Hearts of Iron 4.

I wish consoles these days had games that are worth playing.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.


Planning to get more RAM and another HDD soonish

no

The CPU clock is wrong btw, it's actually 4.2ghz. Don't know why Speccy doesn't track overclocking.

probably because the stock clock is part of the name

you can get hwmonitor and look at max clock to see what it really is

even if youre sure you should check anyway in case thermal throttling is stopping it from running at OC speeds

the last time i played with friends it was fun but anything is fun with friends

it's still just another slow boring strategy game with a mind-numbingly generic space theme

what do you think happens when you overclock

my idles and max load is still about 10 degrees colder than a ps4 while running stress tests that are more intensive than any real world scenario

3.5 -> 4.2 isn't much

idle temple went from 30c to 35c, which is still way below anything approaching "hot" temps.

what risk

worst that can happen with a modern cpu is the speed throttles and just runs slower to cool it down

if you put your mind to it, i'm sure you can imagine something worse than that happening

general rule of thumb—if what you're doing voids the warranty, it's probably not worth doing in the end

in other words you just risk making your pc even slower with a bad OC

anyone who wants to disable the safety stuff either gets whats coming to them or they know what theyre doing and have some crazy cooling setups

intel K series chips are chips that are manufactured well enough that they put them aside to sell unlocked, so you could say they were put aside and sold separately as they have the potential to perform much better than a non-K processor

of course intel says this just so they can refuse you but it would cost more for them to check if youve overclocked than to send you a new processor altogether

how do intel know if youve overclocked a processor? they don't, unless you tell them you did, and they can't say that you did, but they almost certainly expect it, especially with their unlocked CPUs, at the same time theyll happily send you a new one anyway, theres no point in buying a K series chip if youre not going to overclock it

running at stock, theyre identical to the non-K versions, so their overclocking capability is the entire reason the K series exists in the first place, theres also a premium on the price you pay for the unlocked CPU

overclocking at one point in time was genuinely kinda dangerous

now anyone can do it with motherboards and CPUs that are designed for it with many failsafes and preventative measures that wont have any long term effects on your hardware

the reason why they dont sell K processors overclocked out of the box is because of micro imperfections or such that could affect the overclocking capability - if you buy a K series, you're generally guaranteed a decent overclock, but some chips perform much better than others and can handle much higher clock speeds at lower voltages, which means they can run much faster and much colder

when you buy a K series, the scenario is pretty much YMMV, so anyone can hit say X speed with a fair amount of voltage, but some might get even higher with even less voltage, so its pretty much a lottery of how much you can get using as little power as possible

enthusiasts call this the "silicon lottery"

okay, fair enough

but the concept of a CPU that is designed to be OC'd kind of boggles my mind, though, so incoming dumb question: if it's capable of handling overclocked speeds anyway, then why not just design it to run like that normally

looks like you answered that preemptively

Well I play with increased speed because one flaw I can agree with, it's a slow as fuck game otherwise.

it's still just another slow boring strategy game with a mind-numbingly generic space theme
