i guess chinese people are advanced enough to play and tweak with these cutting edge technologies. which we normally can't.

I really like the design of the cooling interface on these. Intel should use these for all their K-series chips.

Did you get tricked into doing rnd for a Chinese company?..

Was gunna say.. The second CPU probably didn’t work because of the previous OC settings you set on the first one and you mentioned that it wasn’t unlocked. Reset the BIOS and BAM.

I am [sanely] obsessed with this youngman Alex I want to "yuppiefy him up" like the brother I never had throw away that farmers' shirt and have him dressed up with upscale Europe-made stripped shirts and bespoke fine trousers give to him half a dozen of my wrist watches and niche-parfums pack him with Italian-made MEN genuine leather wallet with 50€ banknotes and... scream to him... GO CLUBBING WITH YOUR FRIENDS TO HAMBURG ALL WEEKEND AND DO NOT TELL (our) MUM I GAVE YOU MONEY (to spend it in THAT) AND.. MMMM START SPEAKING LIKE A SCHOOLED WHITE EUROPEAN MAN!!!

An Ultra Durable board having issues with sweet RGB memory and a strange and powerful CPU? Crank your memory voltage. CPU still puking in benchmarks? Keep calm and raise vcore.

Has never seen a CPU that looks like this? Ive seen OEM stuff like that. Custom mounting so no retail cooler would fit, was in the K7 days so naked die was normal. ALso seen OEMs with soldered CPUs. Not that strange tbh.

To be fair this isn't the first time he's tested a repackaged mobile chip.

In your BIOS, find and release microcode for any low-end CPU you would never use. Then add one with profile that matches this laptop CPU. With all instructions and registers patched, your system will boot correctly. Note: Microcode must come from laptop using same chipset as your desktop motherboard. If anything goes wrong, don't panic. Drop back in your old CPU, reset BIOS, and try again. Also, your motherboard will not support power saving speed-step features only for laptops. Why should it? There's no battery.
Александр Мельников
And if you really screw up, follow instructions for How to "blind flash" your computer with original BIOS.

seems like a smart marketing scheme since if they pattented the parts anyone who wants the parts needs to get to buy or licence their motherboard or cpu's

Linus you should have a torque screwdriver (like a torque wrench but a screwdriver) for stuff like this. I use one to install EPYC CPUs in servers as is recommended by AMD. It will allow you to accurately and consistently set your hold down pressure with this type of CPU retention.

Which of the Chinese processors is better for a 2019 build, Chintel Core Eye 7 or RMD Frypan 7? Please help.

@7:23 Since when does warranty covers damage caused by overclocking? Let alone that it isn't the manufacturer's business what you do with your CPU. :)

when we are young, poor, and ignorant, yes. but not after we have worked hard to establish economic power, become conscious, and want quality in life. the same goes true for those communists. the ones with economic power want american and japanese made products.

@G00ober It's all state capitalism over there. The Chinese Communist Party encouraged students to study the works of Karl Marx, then blacklisted them when they started actually doing Marxist shit like trying to organize factory workers
