    With G.Skill, there's a sticker on the ram sticks. If you look at the code above the serial number, it will tell you the die. 9th digit will tell you IC manu (1 = Samsung, 2 = hynix) The 11th digit will tell you die (A = A Die, M = M Die, etc).

    Microcenter - Free 32GB DDR5 kit with purchase of a Ryzen 4 CPU.

    There's plenty of 4080's available. No rush to go for the cash grab. M-die still overclocks well around the 7000-7200 range on intel. Will have the the benefit of better timings than A-Die. So for AMD systems, it'll be better to go for the 6000-6400 range if possible, with better timings. So i...

    Microcenter - Free 32GB DDR5 kit with purchase of a Ryzen 4 CPU.

    If you look at the 9th digit on the code on the sticker that's above the serial number and it's a 2, it's hynix, the 11th digit on the code represents die, A for A-Die, M for M-Die. If you have something other than that, it's probably Samsung chips.

    Microcenter - Free 32GB DDR5 kit with purchase of a Ryzen 4 CPU.

    If you get the free G.Skill DDR5 6000 cl 30 memory kit, you have the potential of getting the more expensive Hynix A-Die memory chips. These are known to overclock to 7600-8000+ on intel systems. Unfortunately, Ryzen 7000 processors are pretty much limited to around 6000, maybe slightly higher...

    Turbo boost on laptop

    I'm using Throttlestop and have it undervolted by -150 offset. I also have turbo boost disabled. If I have turbo boost enabled during high usage the thing still gets up to -95c. But I noticed with other laptops with the 8300h run hot too. At first, I thought I did a bad paste job but when I...

    New to VR

    I recently picked up a rift bundle for $140 and came with everything in box (headset, 2 touch controls, and 2 sensors). Are there any good exclusives for the rift? What's the best way to clean the headset? I noticed I get outside light from the nose area on the face foam. Is there a foam...

    Turbo boost on laptop

    Right now, I repasted and have it locked to 2.3 GHz base clock and undervolted. It now idles at 35c and gets up to 70c during stress tests and gaming. This is a lot better than before when I was getting 55c idle and upwards of 95c during stress tests. But again, If I enable turbo boost by using...

    Turbo boost on laptop

    If I change the processor state to 99 it locks the 8300h to 2.3 GHz. I still want it to Turbo boost, just not all the time. I only want it to turbo when the usage calls for it.

    Turbo boost on laptop

    I'm looking at this HP pavilion 15 laptop that has a core i5-8300h & 1050ti. Now the power plan is set to balance and the CPU usage is below 10% and it's turboing to Max 3.9 GHz on all cores all the time. This is an issue as the cooling system on the laptop sucks. Why is the laptop turboing...
