    Had to turn my RAM OC down since Waterfox kept randomly crashing, and it still randomy does crash on 3200 CL14 with tightened timings.

    Need to get my ass up and get it stable but god damn RAM tuning is a PITA. I got nothing but mad respect for people like TiN, buildzoid, or any of the XOCers who do stuff like that almost daily!

    Well now the Redmond Retards as @Mr. Fox would call them (among other things) won't let me install Chrome browser. It downloads but when just short of completing the installation I get a BSOD. Happens no matter what version of 10 I use. Bastards.

    Hey guys, just quick question does unlocking a BIOS say via the Svet BIOS "unlock" the processor? Or will I still be restricted to what/how much I can OC by?

    I was considering OCing the CPU, but wasn't sure if unlocking BIOS is equivalent to having an unlocked CPU (eg. i7XXXX+K)?

    Thanks in advance.

    :p It's nice to finally be getting to the projects. As for the physics score, just a tad... This 8700K went from new in box straight to the mobo... No delid, no LM etc... Just stock so it's as expected. The Ram isn't even tuned yet either. :)
    Thanks brother you too.

    Try upping the voltage?
    I'd recommend Brave browser. It's built off of Chrome and way leaner with built in ad blockers.

    Hey there. Which system / motherboard do you have? Laptop? Unlocking the bios can give you more options and control to tune... You'd still have to manually overclock your cpu in the bios or using software, but with the software it works hand in hand in respect to what the bios is limited to.

    When motherboards are locked down in often prevents you from the very features that you need to properly overclock, such as voltage control, power limits etc...

    MSI GS65-8SE.

    I wanted to increase frequency by setting it higher than 41x.

    The other way would be by increasing BCLK which I am told is unlocked with the BIOS tweak.
