I never get drivers form the assembler; e.g. Asus or Gigabyte. I get them from the chipset manufacturer; e.g. Nvidia and AMD. Chipsets are typically unified unless hacked and that's not common.


I don't recommend overclocking unless the CPU is several years old and one wants to milk it or have special reasons like benchmarking. Otherwise the extra performance is not worth the trouble of reducing the CPU/GPU life or possibly risking the them plus the mobo. Even my 3.4Ghz to 4Ghz (even tried 4.4Ghz before) over clocked 8 year old CPU, and it was a high-end i5 at the time, is not making a difference now that many-multi core CPU's are out.

Just wondered. I know I could overclock the gpu but not sure about the cpu. The board is able to. Just wanting to play around to see if the cpu can and how much. CPU is 3.0ghz but would love to play around with that. Just to see how far I can go. Remember I planning a new build with ryzen. Anyway was just asking.;

I'm sure the RX570 card is already OCed by factory.

Ok, didn't know that. Good to know. Don't know if the cpu will or not. Not sure if I want too. Just looking for something to do. Have to wait till Bob wakes up before I cut more wood. The framework is about halfway done.should have that done by this evening. Later fellow, need to get more supply's. Wd

It's still fun and one can't just hold back on doing them for whatever reason. Didn't mean to impose, sorry.



Let's not confuse factory overclocking with user overclocking. They are two completely different things. All CPU's and GPU's today have built-in speed boosting similar to overclocking but is automated and made with consideration. GPU's from third parties could have some overclocking tags but that's just because they are built on boards made by them with special settings. They are not dealt with like being manually overclocked by the user.

On my first DOS PC it was the stoned virus. It'll say on the screen, "Your PC is stoned!"

Been. Building myself a new desk. Will be getting all the computer off the floor. My computer tower is a redbone. My new chair is red and black matches. My new keyboard will be asus red mouse the same, and the new tower too. I changed my mind on the sized monitor as I saw one at Wally World. It just isn't me. So..I will go with the 27 in. Model. Desk model will be 20 X 72 inches. Plenty of room for me! I have been slow building as I haven't been feeling well. The weather has a lot to do with that. Hope I can finish it today. One thing I forgot is poly to seal the wood, and I like the grain of the wood. Shame to paint over it! I am so tired of having only the tablet!!

I saw a picture on Reddit with a hailstone that size from Texas. It busted thru the roof and ceiling of the house!

I have been doing my thing and thought i would give a shot or two. Its not finished but coming along. I am dressing it up with asus rog. Keyboard monitor and mat for the mouse and keyboard. That should be able to protect the desktop from marks and scratches. The computer case is a redbone u2. Perfect for a asus setup. More later, Dan
