      that's the chip to soak the gaming juices that secrete from the mobo. usually to get rid of this faster you can run your mobo under 40° fahrenheit water and that should increase your FPS

    Chinese reseller probably figured it out, starting selling gaming PC's around the time the chipset was new, made a shit ton selling "i7 Gaming PC's" for massive margins under other sellers and just over bought now selling his secret :p

    I bet they recycle broken laptops for parts and stuff like that. There must be a way to profit on this somehow and I am guessing they must have access to some faulty laptops very cheaply or something. Or this is one of the CPUs that hadn't passed Intel's QA testing and they got their hands onto that and sell it unofficially? And I remember in the past there were those... I don't remember the name. But the chip that c2d later on evolved from, the early versions that were a single core mobile processors. Someone made a desktop motherboard for those and they were overclocking like crazy thanks to the mobile low voltage design. Maybe there's something similar going on here?

      CKH Joseph Před 10 dny +1

      Sylkis89 I got myself a 4700hq and managed to oc it to 3.87 ghz all cores stable with an extra 0.1 V, only issue is that the ram can’t keep up with the bclk increase and had to have the frequency be lowered. Runs well and manages to get games at 1080p max at 60 FPS when paired with a Rx 470 8 gb. Overall, these recycled mobile chips are great value, especially when replacing my ex-i3 4160

    Thats the same exact motherboard that I have in my main desktop PC, but my CPU is a 4770K which I overclocked to 4.4 ghz which I have with 16 gb ddr3 ram 2400 mhz and a GTX 1080 graphics card. It seems to hold up well like in new games like Far Cry New Dawn, I usually get between 70 to 80 fps on 1080p ultra quality.

    The Communist Chinese intention for decades has been to STEAL and ILLEGALLY COPY United States technology and then to saturate our market with our own STOLLEN technology so they can RUIN us economically. As one example, All you GEEK BOYS are failing to educate yourself as to the current State Department’s clear and present announcement before Congress as to the danger Huawei is, as the corporation has been proven that they have been caught participating with the Chinese government in selling products which have ic chips used for the expressed intentions of industrial and governmental espionage.
    Just go back and carefully examine all the news stories of the arrest of the the female Huawei executive in Canada 🇨🇦 and why that occurred.
    The Communists force American companies to do what they dictatorially want in their country, but now they are attempting to sue the United States for violating our own Constitution in relating to subsequent Huawei legal case. They murder their own people if it suits their egotistical purposes, but then hypocritically want to turn our Constitutional Laws against us.
    Also note how the liberal fools running California allow wealthy Chinese citizens to come into the real estate market and buy up housing at inflated prices and the the new Chinese landlords jack-up the rents making it impossible for local people who were born in California to not be homeless. All you geeks who have nothing better to do than play fantasy video games had better wake up and look at what going on around you
    and how the Chinese intention is to ruin our nation into a third world economy.

  • konradson
    konradson Před měsícem

    Very interesting, indeed. But what if you do some more tests, like with maths software, like statistics: SAS, SPSS, Lisrel, STATA...

    I guess that these people doing this kind of things with old Intel processors have too many of them, and have also an incredibly wide market to sell them. Now you plug this micro into a onda mainboard (there's other video with motherboards with good retrocompatibility, where you can plug more generations of Intel processors than what is normal), add DDR3 memory and you have a rather unexpensive computer. In this same mainboard you can put an 8th Generation i7...

    So imagine how many possibilities for an extremely large market like Chinese. Or just, someone in any other country, buying a good amount of these chips. Outside China, it may be expensive to buy one, but what if you buy 100?
