Trying it out

So far I've noticed temps to be up & down. Going to see if it helps with games

Also, those feels when your win7 theme matches the wallpaper

After unparking the cpus, temps vary. More cpus ramp up, & power consumption is on demand. Makes me guess it's more 'ready' to rev up and take care of any tasks at hand. Pretty cool.

Yesterday i ran an fps comparison in a game from before/after. Overall it was the same 150fps average on mech warrior online. One thing though after i unparked them i was getting ~2fps less so 148 or so however one big thing was on explosions my fps went down to 50-60fps while parked and after i unparked the lowest spike was down to 100fps.

Of course vsync back on after the test.

I reread my prev. post and realized I made a rhyme.

How is mechwarrior online? I haven't tried it yet.

That's interesting to know about the FPS drops & explosions. Maybe being rendered by the cpu??

I'll try out Tribes Ascend. I tend to get glitchy fps at times while playing that. It pretty much maxes out my 750ti gpu.

I also hear Supreme Commander 2 is very CPU resource hungry from a co-worker FWIW.

In Flames ftw,

Mechwarrior online looks fun, You were up against the wall going for ALLOFIT towards the end.

Occasionally, when I'm sitting here at work running AudoCAD inside a VM while some big render happens up in the main OS and I'm simultaneously doing about a dozen other things, I find myself griping internally about how slow this PC is.

Then I think "Well, ****, I've got twelve cores, 16 GB of RAM, and a video card that could have rendered Toy Story in real time. In the grand scheme of things, I'm pretty spoiled."

What's your ram usage while all of this is going on? I would think 16GB is too small.

And harddrive speeds?

RAM usage is typically below 50% of physical, and rarely peaks above 75%.

Hard drives... I've got four in this machine, of which two (an SSD and a larger spinny-disk) are configured in a main/cache orientation. But a lot of the data I'm working with is over on a SQL server in the rack room, to which I only have a 1 Gb network connection.

I specced 16GB of RAM for my department's last government laptop purchase. If the government is letting its departments get laptops with 16GB of ram in them, then you know that 16GB is merely pedestrian nowadays. Consider that we're still limited to getting 15" screens at a mere 720p resolution on laptop purchases. (Which didn't limit me also speccing discrete GPUs capable of running 7x monitors at 1080p, a DisplayPort Capable docking station, and multiple monitors for each employee in my dept. )

And they're on the gov network, so they're still slow as ballz

Hehe.

Like I said, I don't think I'm RAM-bound. The VM that I run AutoCAD in only has 4 GB allocated to it, and the machine really only slows down when I'm doing a database ripple between WireCAD and the SQL server. That's mostly a CPU and network-intensive task.

I used to run a plain ole' quad-core i7 machine with 8 GB, and that thing was a dog. I mean, for most purposes it would be amazing, but in this application it sucked. I got lucky when the company sold off the division that did realtime 3d rendering with motion-tracking for previsualization (you know, people wearing spandex suits with reflective ***** on them with eight infrared cameras pointed at them.) I grabbed one of the relatively new BOXX brand APEXX-5 workstations out of the rendering suite and made it my desktop PC. Mine isn't the most highly-loaded version (the big ones are 20 core Xeon and come with 32 GB), but it works for me.

Getting 4.80v on my 12v rail. Does this mean my PS is failing? I've been noticing lots of performance loss lately. Games are getting choppy when they weren't maybe a few weeks ago.

I did just upgrade to a 4K monitor so I'm running games at higher settings, but I've noticed it since playing and in other applications like Photoshop or Lightroom. Now even some webpages I can see/feel a noticeable delay on when I scroll the wheel and a reaction on screen.

I have:
an AMD FX-8320
32GB of DDR3
R9 390 GPU with 8GB of RAM
SSD running on my apps.
PS is this one.

I'd be more willing to bet it's a compatibility issue between the software and your motherboard. Try another application like HwInfo and see what it says.

Measure it.
Find an unused molex connector and measure between black and yellow. That's for 12v. 5v is red. 3.3v is orange.

Test under load.

Download HWMonitor sir, see if that program gets the correct reading. Truth is the system wont boot up if the 12 volt only shows 5 volts.

Are you suggesting the government is at all sensible with it's purchases?

I'm curious why you think you need 16gb of ram, what are you doing to ever dent that? I've got solidworks, cam software, and 3d printing slicing software all rolling at once on 8gb. I only ever get into the page file when **** goes **** up and I open too many files on accident. I know when it happens, because I've got it entirely turned off.

Truth is RAM is cheap and easy to add and computer-unsavy people have been tricked into thinking they need 2-4x what they'll ever need.

I have 8GB of ram on my workstation. 6GB is pretty much always reserved for the security software running.
