    Just check that it's not Thunderbolt. USB-c can be thunderbolt. If it's standard USB then all is fine :)

    I literally don't need anything. 9900k OC @ 5Ghz and a 3070Ti. I want a 7900X3D and a 4080 :devilish:

    Interesting variation on the base clocks. I'm going to be in a fight with myself not to go for the 7950 to be honest. I have absolutely no need for anything past the 7800X tbh (in actual fact I have no need for anything past what I have) but I think the 7900X will make me feel happy and give me...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lockdown - What's Worth a Watch?

    Venom movie was awful. I actually thought both of them were pretty poor. John Wick (the entire series) is absolutely fantastic though. Seriously good action movies and suits Keanu perfectly for the character. Can't wait for the 4th. The plan was to have it out at the same time as the latest...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Upgrading my memory

    That'll be a bug in the configurator I imagine. It's likely difficult to guarantee the fit with your case and problematic with the cooler. You could maybe call PCS to see if they can fix that particular issue. Regarding the RAM. If you're replacing the RAM entirely (opting for RGB RAM) then...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help with overlocking

    Do you have a link to the RAM you bought? 3600Mhz is about the limit that RAM can run but the timings need to be bang on across all of the sticks.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Nichelle Nichols passes away aged 89

    What an icon she was. As suggested, absolute trail blazer. Entire Star Trek community will be devastated. I hope there will be a documentary release for her career, would make for a very good watch I think.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Userbenchmark new tantrum on upcoming Ryzen 7000

    I would love a whole team red build to be honest. Especially with considering the infinity fabric etc. There are a number of considerations for me too. 1. DLSS & RT. This is a must nowadays. We need performance and pretty with the money we put into these builds. 2. Infinity Fabric - Lets see...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST If you ever doubted that the 80's was just the best decade for film and TV

    I thought I had seen every episode. I clearly missed that little gem. Either that or I blocked it out :D

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil VI - charging via Thunderbolt 4 port?

    I'm not going to say no, as I don't actually know with any certainty..... but I would be absolutely amazed if it did. You're running some serious hardware in that particular package. TB/USB-C tends to only allow for up to a max around 200w IIRC (too late for me to bother googling). I think the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Got new pc today. RTX 3060ti always at full tilt!

    You absolutely can leave it as it is and it'll be fine. I would say, purely for education and understanding, it's completely worthwhile having a go with Afterburner. It's one of these things that I think most should spend some time doing :)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop CPU Thermal throttling issue

    I don't know if your system is still available as it sits. The configuration layout isn't my favourite for the laptop section. On your build specifically, here is what I see as issues: 11k Series CPUs have been superseded. They've been out of date for a while and they weren't that good in all...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop CPU Thermal throttling issue

    It definitely sounds like it's not running correctly. Dropping down to such low frequencies suggests that there's a cooling problem. With that being said, I would recommend returning the laptop and getting some advice regardless. The spec is not well balanced or considered at all IMO. Always...

    With regards to the situation as it stands. You have suggested it won't turn off via the power button. This is fairly standard and it shouldn't do until completely configured inside Windows. Are you saying that the system boots up to windows, you can log in.... but then the power button does...

    This may be a bit of a blessing in disguise. Unfortunately that's not a well configured PC at all. Always best to get some independent advice before purchasing (The mods & users of this forum are completely impartial) I would genuinely send that system back and then get some advice on a new...

    No, just go ahead. Down the line, you'll want to upgrade the monitor and the GPU for the latest and greatest. When that day comes, the system.... including the PSU, will have you covered.

    It does and it doesn't...... by that very definition RAM should always be listed as GiB? This line here: "The IT and data storage industries often use the binary system's power-of-two nonmetric units." Is where my spidey sense tingles and I just think they're looking to short change us. If it...

    I think it's to do with the advertising. It's deliberate, to make you think you're getting more..... a bit like how broadband companies list Mb rather than MB, because more always looks better. MiB didn't exist, there was no such thing. Someone came up with the use of "i" at some point in recent...

    Just found this image on the interwebs… Naw.... just naw!! The "i" is made up nonsense to round things off. In a computer system.... it's on or off.... 0 or 1.... Base 2 or ^2. Changing it to base 10 through laziness is just the modern approach. There's no justification for it IMO, "i" or...
