Overclocking

Overclockers: Don’t Skimp on Stress Testing!

Overclocking is so pervasive that CPU, RAM and motherboard manufacturers cater to it. Modern CPUs are smart enough to self-throttle if they reach a critical temperature, making it safer than it once was. Further, power-saving technologies such as core parking and frequency scaling help resist thermal build-up. Given this, you can probably get away with […]

Should You Disable Hyper-Threading?

Symmetric Multi-Threading (SMT), also known as Hyper-Threading, exposes two logical CPU cores for every physical CPU core. It does this by sharing computational units of the physical CPU core between the two virtual CPU cores. If neither of the paired cores needs to use the same CPU resources, then they can run simultaneously. This allows […]

Quit using Registry Cleaners!

Useless Registry Cleaners

So, you use a registry cleaner. Well, that’s fine, none of us wants to be ‘dirty’ and supposedly these tools will clean up your registry. Let’s do some analysis. When Microsoft designed Windows they realized that they would need a shared store for OS and application options. This store would need to support both the […]
