Installing Windows 10 Creators Update to the UDOO x86

Installing Windows 10 Creators Update to the UDOO x86

Hi everyone, Today, I’ll show you a video where I’m installing Windows 10 Creators Update (build 15063) to the UDOO x86. Installing Windows 10 is very easy and while the setup took some time to finish, Windows 10 runs very nice on this board. In fact, I used the UDOO x86 to do the ArduBOINC project you can see by clicking here. One recommendation is that if you plan on installing big software later, like Visual Studio 2017, I recommend you…

MSI RX 570 Armor 4GB OC – AMD Radeon RX 570 Graphics Card

MSI RX 570 Armor 4GB OC – AMD Radeon RX 570 Graphics Card

Hi everyone, Today, I got the MSI RX 570 Armor 4GB OC Graphics Card which is an AMD Radeon RX 570 GPU. I’m using this GPU in my i7-3610QM Mini ITX PC, crunching BOINC Workunits, particularly, Collatz Conjecture workunits. This GPU crunches them at 26 minutes per workunit. In comparison, my Nvidia Geforce 1060 3GB can crunch those workunits at just 24 minutes. This makes the RX570 a little slower in that project. It may be faster on other projects…

What was making my AMD Ryzen CPU temperature high?

What was making my AMD Ryzen CPU temperature high?

The real issue was not the cooling, but the vcore applied to the CPU, In the past, the BIOS was set to Auto vcore, and it was applying 1.36V of vcore, which was making the CPU temperature skyrocket to the 80C almost 90C: Now, In the BIOS, I set the vcore voltaje via offset, meaning that the BIOS applies the CPU stock voltage of 1.18V plus or minus a value I add to it. In my case, I applied a…

Hardware Upgrades! 120mm x 38mm noisy fan and ATI Radeon HD 2400 GPU

Hardware Upgrades! 120mm x 38mm noisy fan and ATI Radeon HD 2400 GPU

Hi everyone, Today, I performed some hardware upgrades to my computers. First, on my Ryzen PC, which was getting temperatures of 84C all the way to 89C, I replaced the front 120mm fan, which was an Arctic F12, with a 120mm x 38mm high airflow but very noisy fan I took out from a Dell PC. This fan was placed on the CPU heatsink, so I tough on using it on my new Ryzen CPU as it could definitely lower…

AMD Ryzen 7 and Nero Video 2017. A Look at Performace

AMD Ryzen 7 and Nero Video 2017. A Look at Performace

Hi everyone, Today, I’m sharing my experience with Nero Video 2017 on my AMD Ryzen 7 PC. So far, I’m not pleased with the performance Nero Video is having on this PC. The issue seems to be that the software is coded to use just a few cores or threads instead of using every core and thread of the CPU. I can get to this conclusion as on my Intel i7 PC, it manages to use like 80% of the…

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 overclocked to 3.6Ghz

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 overclocked to 3.6Ghz

Hi everyone, Yesterday night, I was playing with the motherboard BIOS and overclocked my CPU to 3.6Ghz, using a multiplier of x36. Voltage is set to Auto and it is currently using 1.36v, although CPU-Z reports weird readings of 1.94 and 2.000V, which are incorrect readings. Here is a benchmark from Cinebench and CPU-Z. Below you can see my current system specs: Cinebench: CPU-Z Bench: CPU-Z System Information: HWiNFO: About the temperatures, I’m using the Stock Cooler and running BOINC…
