Because straight with the popular increase of the voltage (e.g. Vcore, VDDR, GPU voltage, etc.) to the achievement from better overclocking results increases also drastically the power consumption of the PC. If one uses compressor cooling or other high performance cooling systems to the heat dissipation, it can also result in an overloading of the power supply unit (PSU), which results in the most … Continue reading Sunbeamtech SUNNUO550-EUAP-SV 550 Watt modular PSU Hardware Review

It’s questionable if it’s worth to increase CPU speed by decreasing the cacherate. But i notice only an insignificant difference between 1/2 Cache and 1/3 with benchmark programs like Final reality or … Continue reading AMD Athlon 500 Overclocking with Cachedivisor
