Quick fix, voltages and saving you rma time.


Recommended Posts

Very often people send me rma requests for stability issues even in brand new hardware.

Quick rule of thumb if your using more than one dim of ram a minor ram voltage bump can work magic on your system. Going from 1.65 or 1.35 to 1.66 or 1.36 can solve a good sum of issues.

Same wIth cpus bumping them up just slightly can be the difference from a bsod and a happy rig.

all voltage bumps should be done in the bios and stress tested after.

Thank you-Soul

@Arinoth:

Same could be said about graphics cards too. I had one that was unstable at default settings, but a slight bump in voltage fixed its stability issues.

This is a very good point from Arinoth.

Also as you put more components onto the system you can get dirty power or unstable power that is dropping below the required minimum for hardware, as more components are added slight voltage increases can resolve issues majorly.

Thank you

    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/

    • Thank you! I'm looking through that thread now. It looks like I'll be dropping by Best Buy on my way home tonight to have a look at what they have! They have 10TBs in stock, so maybe I'll grab a couple!
