  1. We’ve partnered up with our friends at HWBOT to put together an overclocking competition that everyone can participate in before we celebrate the launch of DDR5 later this year! Requirements: You must use CORSAIR DDR4 memory No engineering/qualification samples of other components are allowed The rig you use must be yours and you must use the same platform (CPU/motherboard) for all 3 stages of the contest No sub-ambient cooling allowed, let's see what you can do with a standard air cooler / liquid cooling Contest Details: The competition will take place over the course of 3 different stages, each lasting roughly 2 weeks to give you time to dial in your overclock and get the highest score you can get for each benchmark (the benchmark will change for each stage). The first stage kicked off on August 15th and will run through September 7th (at the time of writing, you've got 18 days to get your first submission in for this stage of the competition). Entry Details: If you want to participate in this contest, head on over to HWBOT for the full list of rules and other information you need to get started! Prizes? There are prizes, right? Indeed! We're giving away prize packs to the top 5 competitors, including some keyboards, mice, and of course hardware for your next build like a MP600 PRO SSD and one of our new RMx power supplies! If you do well enough, you'll also get the chance to be among the first to get some kits of DDR5 memory when they launch later this year! Best of luck to all that participate!
  2. Hey guys, I'm wondering if any of you have found success with overclocking the i165. What I mean is if you've gotten significantly more performance out of it, because I tried and did not achieve more than some inconsistent 2% ish boosts in CPU speed and, perhaps, a few frames more per second from the GPU at the expense of a lot more fan noise (though still at full volume it wasn't a big deal - i just think that the tradeoff of silence for a few less frames is worth it).

  3. Has anybody OCd the i145? If so, what were your settings?
  4. Been scratching my head over this one for some time. Most of the needed info can be found in my specs, but I'll add that the RAM was bought in a bundle (2x8GB), and is v5.30. At first I installed the RAM in slots A1 and A2, not knowing the proper instructions for achieving dual-channel operation. Only later did I discover that it was running in single-channel mode. After enabling XMP, the motherboard was unable to POST, and I had to disable XMP again to be able to boot. I already confirmed that the XMP settings match the specs of the product (timings 15-17-17-35, voltage 1.35). I also tried setting these values manually, which produces the same result. When I realized the RAM was also running in single-channel mode, I looked into it and found that I had to install it in slots A2 and B2 to achieve dual-channel operation. I did so and tried enabling XMP again. At first, the system actually booted, but I then discovered that the system had only detected one of the RAM sticks. I shut down the system and the PSU, made sure both sticks were properly seated and booted up again. This time the motherboard was again unable to POST. I disabled XMP, and the system booted correctly - this time with dual-channel operation. It's really frustrating to have to run at 2133 MHz when I shelled out for 3000 MHz RAM. According to my motherboard's Qualified Vendors List (QVL), the RAM should be able to run alright, and I believe the same is true for my CPU. Please advise! :) Update: Just realized that I had read the motherboard's manual wrong, and I was using slots A1 and B1 rather than the recommended A2 and B2. I changed that and enabled XMP. This time, the initial POST failed, but instead of the usual error message the system booted successfully after a restart. Will test more tomorrow to assess stability. Hoping that the initial POST failure was a one time thing, but I hesitate to believe so. Will update again. Update 2: After waking the system from sleep mode, POST failed again. Rebooted and it succeeded. Just like yesterday. Not sure what to do. Will update regarding stability when I've had the chance to use the PC for a while.
