PCIE speed not right

17 February 2018 - 12:01 PM

Hi folks, just installed gtx 1070 (thanks occ) and when I run gpuz it shows it running at 8 times instead of 16x's bandwidth. Got a little worried so I put my gtx 660 back in and it dose the same thing. I ran gpuz render test but still stayed at 8x's. Up to date drivers and the mb supports 16x's. Any one run across this problem ? Checked bios and it is set to 16x's.

power supply 12volt drops

12 November 2017 - 08:54 PM

When I game with hardware monitor running I've noticed my 650 watt psu's 12 volt reading drops to 11.53 volts at times and the highest it reads is 11.97 volts. It has been like this almost since new which is 4 years ago. It's a LSP Ultra psu.The reason I'm asking about this now is sometimes when I oc only to 4.3 the pc goes into a no boot mode (fans start then stop  but wont enter bios until I reset cmos ).  Any opinions on this or could it be another problem ???

w10 install fail

18 August 2015 - 06:43 PM

Ok folks here's the problem, the daughter went for the w10 upgrade from w8.1 on her 6 month old laptop. It installed fine but the hdmi would not show the screen on her tv ( most likely a driver problem ). As she uses her pc to watch dl'ed movies this created a problem, she called me and I told her to revert back to w8 (which we are supposed to be able to do according to micro$oft ).When it reverted back it screwed up her password and now she can't get into windows at all. She lives 300 miles away so I can't try to hack into the os for her . Any one run into this ?
