    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    Sitting on my EVGA x299 Dark and a 10980xe that I upgraded to last year, picked up used for $500. Runs at 4.5Ghz. I really don't see any point in anything with more cores. Hell, its probably way more cores than anyone will need for the next 5 years, at least. I thought Win 11 might make a...

    Around $250 speakers to connect to my PC for small room.

    Hey, I hope you liked em. Only reason I recommend the LSR 305s is because reading around the internet, they have been a go to favorite for someone wanting good speakers that don't require an amp. I have a set of these on my home entertainment system in my living room as well as my PC. It is...

    adding metal screw inserts to 3D prints

    The inserts work really well. If you are looking for maximum strength, then like others have said, build in a nut on the back side of your print. What you use is really dependent on the design, size and whether it has to be really strong. At that point, you are not only taking your fasteners...

    Try JBL LSR 305 Add a Sub later, you won't regret it. https://www.proaudiostar.com/2x-jbl-305p-mkii-customer-return.html?utm_source=Google_Shopping&gclid=CjwKCAjwzruGBhBAEiwAUqMR8EZWbV49blkwl1I_Rbk4b6bCqSm9Mm8wC5E_Ecz_XDSeVEa-bYuimBoCfg8QAvD_BwE

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    Looks like they are gearing their OS to work on both PCs and mobile devices. Hey Microsoft! what works on my phone will not work on my 43" monitor! I hate they have already made a mess of scaling, but now everything is centered in the middle of my monitor with empty margins.

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    Honestly, just work on your OC settings. It will take a little while to dial it in, but I am sure you have plenty of headroom left. 3.8Ghz, you are leaving meat on the table. Both that CPU and GPU can be OC'd, you just need to do it methodically. Today's processors with so many cores really...

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    From your bios screen shot, it look like you got the key settings disabled. You are currently set at 3801.06 MHz and your CPU voltage appears to be at 1.031. Not bad in getting to 3.8Ghz. So, what HWBOT record are you referring to for your "normal" numbers? I want to take a look at their...

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    I can't make out your pictures and I don't know your bios', so I will have to wait until I see better pictures, or someone else can help you with a tutorial. From you HWINFO, it looks like your CPU is running at 1.2 Ghz and only goes up to 3k while working. So definitely, you need to get your...

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    Don't use Windows software to overclock. Go in your bios. Before you ask what to set, we need to see your bios. The only thing I would change is your core voltages to 1.2 and set your cores to 4.0. Most 10980xe should be able to get between 4.0-4.5 fairly easily. I would only be concerned...

    Doubleclick on the item you want to see a graphy for.

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    Iopoetve, Also run another core tracking program graph. HWINFO64 can do it if you double click on the cores. You can open all of them side by side and watch what the CPU is doing independent from Time Spy. Do the same with the GPU.

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    I agree, but there is no other way to rule out the program he is having an issue with. If ALL other programs check out and are working as designed, and the same program he is using works on ALL other computers but his, then it is likely a compatibility problem, or that is just the results he...

    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    I would want to see what kind of throttling in HWINFO64 he is having during benching. From here we could see if he has a power issue, VRM or CPU temp throttling
