    I just installed a new ram.
    It seems to have an amazing timing.

    It was reduced from 64gb RAM to 32gb.
    There are no more shutdown symptoms and it is going well.

    In a P model I suppose.

    But PCI-E 4.0 on X570 with the desktop CPU is the thing. The APUs are more efficient.

    Singapore's AfterShock last batch of NH5#A@ laptop had sold out. So now begins the wait for new batch with 5k CPUs refresh!

    A tweaked 5600x does look very formidable.

    So I've been trying to overclock my GPU in this laptop, the 2070, and it sometimes works yet seems to reset itself when it gets highly used. I can generally get it up to about 2150 Mhz fully stable, but when I run something that uses 80-100% of the GPU it just goes right back down to its default speeds. Any advice on how to keep it at the OC'd speeds?

    It needs a much higher power limit, which can be achieved by physically modifying the shunt resistors on the board, as well as adequate cooling to keep the temperature low.

    It's already got adequate cooling, so that's not an issue, but I assume I can't actually modify the shunt resistors without damaging anything?

    I mean, somehow I doubt this laptop has good enough cooling to keep a power modded GPU core below 40C under full load, as the temperature compensation algorithm since Pascal kicks in and starts dropping the core clock every few degrees as the card heats up. Not to mention the VRMs might not be able to handle the extra stress. 2150MHz is a pipe dream...

    2150Mhz full load will get VERY power hungry.

    Hi there just a question.
    I currently have 2666 ram my computer with 3900x. Do you think switching to 3200 cas 18 will result in a major uplift in terms of CPU performance ?
