Intel Socket Issues

11 April 2018 - 08:47 AM

Why did Intel create the i9 for Skylake but not for Coffeelake ?


I find the problem with Coffeelake is that it's limited to only upgrading to other flavors of the i7 rather if one ever wants to upgrade to the i9 which can only be done though Skylake.  I understand both are nm14 therefore I assume the difference, although I don't know the specific differences between the two is small ?


Also why does it appear most socket 2066 boards have some sort of problem one way or another ?



Case Mod Construction

30 March 2018 - 01:22 PM

Has anyone or does any do custom case modding ? 


I have an idea for a case, probably should design it first but I've never done welding which in my mod I believe will be required. Unless someone can suggest what I can do so I can get comfortable so I can mod a case ?



HDD not visible in Windows

03 March 2018 - 05:37 PM

I have multiple SSD/HDD they are all connected by one power cable into the PSU. Except one of the drives, I'm assuming the HDD is not being seen by windows, my guess it's the jumper being set to master ?


To show what I mean here is a diagram


As seen, to the left is the power cable, it's daisy chained from the top to the next drive, and the next and the next etc then into the PSU.


First Drive is an HDD with SATA connection

Second Drive is a SSD

Third is a HDD with SATA connection

Forth is a HDD with strictly a Ribbon Cable to the motherboard

Fifth is an SSD


My guess is the HDD with the ribbon cable is the cause; it's set to master for the jumper; should I change it to cable select or slave ?




Overclocking More

04 February 2018 - 02:06 PM

I've already over clocked a PC from 3.2ghz to roughly 4Ghz, the CPU runs at roughly 33C.  Therefore can I atleast push the CPU to 4.2 ghz also considering if I have; I assume plenty of wattage coming into the computer, if that is relevant to begin with ?

Wires Disappear

22 November 2017 - 07:57 PM

How do they get cases so clean inside whereas you don't see any wires but a few tubs.  I dislike looking inside my case as I have case wires running from point A - B followed by SATA cables running from here to there.  I want to see strictly the hardware not the wires, if that is possible ?
