Looking for a new CPU that I could possibly overclock as to not bottleneck a 970 SLI or 980, however my mobo isn’t the greatest. It’s an AM3+ GA-970A-UD3P by Gigabyte, and I’m wondering what the best cpu I can run with it is, preferably good to overclock if I ran something like the H 100i with it

As to bottleneck – all AMD CPUs bottleneck some games. Only Crysis-3 with the CRY-3 Engine, and Battlefield-4 with the Frostbite 3 engine use more than 4 cores of a CPU or any Intel virtual core hyperthreading. Therefore, all gaming, other than these two games, have half a FX-8000 series as idle. Recording gaming is … Continue reading Looking for a new CPU that I could possibly overclock as to not bottleneck a 970 SLI or 980, however my mobo isn’t the greatest.

What is a CPU (laptop)?

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. It’s the brain of your laptop. You can ignore the Norton’s warning as CPU’s often run at 100% if multitasking or running cpu intensive programs. Nortons was just warning you that your CPU was working at max capacity which is not a bad thing as long as you know … Continue reading What is a CPU (laptop)?

What is the best cpu?

Published on

My favorite CPU (central processing unit) is Intel. This has been the case since Cyrix and AMD made their disastrous decision to mis-label their CPU’s back in the DX 233 days. They decided to try and compete unfairly by calling what was really a 233 Mhz CPU a 266. So they competed with Intel 266’es. … Continue reading What is the best cpu?

GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit… and yes, it does affect your framerate, but that’s far from the only factor. Stuff like: Does the video card have its own dedicated memory, or does it share the computer’s memory? If it shares the computer’s memory, how fast is the memory bus? The easiest way to think … Continue reading CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. It is the brains of the unit. The CPU is what runs your programs.

he CPU fan not being detected would mean either your dad dislodged the connector to the motherboard, dislodged the data cable from the fan, or the fan is to warn out to be of any use (running too slow or not showing that it’s running)

the slowness would probably be down to a few things. 1 (which i suspect) is that the CPU is overheating, there is a heat transfer paste between the CPU and heatsink that you should replace every year. it has probably degraded so much that the heat transfer between CPU and the heatsink is serverly disrupted. … Continue reading he CPU fan not being detected would mean either your dad dislodged the connector to the motherboard, dislodged the data cable from the fan, or the fan is to warn out to be of any use (running too slow or not showing that it’s running)

every CPU is assigned with a ‘clock speed’ measured in GHz. This is done by the manufacturer that also tested the cpu to see what ‘clock speed’ is safe for that particular cpu to produce.

Published on

For instance, the manufacturer is actually only making 3.2Ghz cpu’s but after testing they find out a produced cpu is only able to reach 2.66GHz safely. Then they assign that ‘clock speed’ to that particular cpu and sell it for less. This means the cpu has an actual capacity of 3.2Ghz so you could ‘OverClock’ … Continue reading every CPU is assigned with a ‘clock speed’ measured in GHz.

Upgrading CPU?

Published on

Best possible CPU only upgrade would be a fx-8350, just drop in and your ready to go, no new parts needed and no reinstall of OS. One great I7 is the i7-4790k, which requires a LGA 1150 motherboard and reinstall of OS( Anytime you replace a motherboard, it is recommended for a reinstall of OS), … Continue reading Upgrading CPU?

The CPU and video card are the most important system components for maximum gaming performance. For many games, the video card is more important than the CPU (the more 3D visuals, the more important the video card becomes). In a typical optimum gaming system,

Choose a good video card, then choose a good CPU; it might be wise to spend somewhat more on the video card than on the CPU. You may have to replace the motherboard and memory, too, depending on which CPU you want, and which video card you plan to install. These four things can fit … Continue reading The CPU and video card are the most important system components for maximum gaming performance.
