    Has anyone yet tried to upgrade to the Core 2 Extreme QX9300? The 12mb Cache sounds interesting, especially when I'll be doing revit 3d rendering.

    I tried. Didn't work. But maybe it's somehow related to why my laptop couldn't start even with X9000.

    A number of people have tried to no avail. It simply won't work for a number of reasons. Wrong FSB speed, voltage issues, pin mod issues, etc.

    How does the Dragon play with Windows 8.1, which has end of support in 2023?

    Unfortunately, Classic Shell, which gives a better GUI to Win 8 is no longer being actively developed, but there are a few other "shells" that give 8 a better appearance and functionality.

    Awfully quiet on this thread. I thought I heard a fly and a dog barking in the distance, but I could have been imagining it.

    So no one has installed 8.1?

    It should work fine as it doesn't have the driver restrictions that Win 10 has. Though Win10 works with its enforced recent drivers provided that you set the driver to maximum performance, through Nvidia Control Panel.

    I have an HP HDX9480 laptop
    For several years he has an unpleasant function.
    When the graphics card is loaded (for example, in games), the processor frequency is reduced to a minimum within a few seconds.
    I've already tried all sorts of settings in terms of power, including using ThrottleStop, but the result is the same.
    Tell me, why is this happening? Can you ever face such a problem and find out the explanation and solution of this problem?
    When the download only goes to the processor, the frequencies do not drop.
    But, if the load is simultaneously with the processor and graphics card, then the frequencies are periodically reduced to a minimum
    Frequencies do not go down only if I force "Chipset Clock Modulation-100%".
    But I'm afraid that the motherboard or chipset will burn. Have
    I have one suspicion:
    the fact is that the initial power of my laptop should be 180W.
    My laptop is powered by a 120W power supply. I bought it from a person who has the same laptop, only with ATI Radeon graphics card
    I have a suspicion that the laptop does not have enough power, and the BIOS or chipset forcefully reduces the frequency when there is a shortage of resources.
    What do you think about it ? I really hope that you will help me with advice,
    I'll give you some screenshots, review them, please.
    By the testing method, I found a temporary solution:
    if you use the Nvidia inspector to reduce the frequency of shader blocks to 1000, then the processor will run at its maximum.
    In this case throttling is not observed.
    Sorry for the bad english. I'm from Ukraine. I'm writing with Google Translation.
