my RAM is Crucial 8gb 2x4 DRR4 2666
My CPU is Intel Core I5-6600k Unlocked
I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Premium, I plan on doing the free upgrade to windows 10
My question is straight forward. In the BIOS, and also on the Motherboard what all should, or can I do to optimize it for Gaming?
I did use the EZmode set up wizard in the BIOS to change it to more of a gaming build. Now when the computer boots up it says 22% Overclocked.
I would like to know how I can research what all the best optimal settings I can do with this build?
There are physical switches on the motherboard it self,
EZ XMP switch
TPU switch ( I think this switch had 3 settings, off, I, II.
If anyone has time perhaps answer a few more questions not related to overclocking.
I also would like to know my SATA Interface, there are many places to plug in to the SATA slots. One of them says OS ( im assuming that is my main one that my OS is on. That would be my SSD 250gb.
When loading the fresh installation of Windows 7 this morning, I noticed that the computer made a partition and another drive, D: drive and on it it says System reserved (100mb allocated), and it contains a file named Boot with many files in it.
When I load up my computer is loads a screen that says Windows 7, and then under it it also has windows 7.. like its asking me which one i want to load up. I do have another HD hooked up, but there is nothing on it. ( I read some where that said make sure there are no other drives hooked up when installing your OS so the computer doesnt get confused)
I only have a DVD drive, SSD sata, and a HD sata. I want to make sure I have them plugged in the optimal ports also.
