Re: Hardware update

I'd take the i5 and less RAM - I do not know what else you use the rig for and what the demands are but for IL2 8GB is more than enough.

Re: Hardware update

Generally I should be able to reach to low-tier Ryzens or some i5 equivalent , however that would require repla...

Hardware update

Hey chaps, With my birthday (and Christmas too, after all) growing near, I realized there will be a few Korunas to spend on some hardware goodies this Autumn so I'm coming here for a word of advice. My current rig is doing well, however especially in rowdy missions in BoX or DCS or even in some dens...

Re: CPY-z help

The CPU-Z is quite a straightforward utility once you get oriented in the numbers. I'll be happy to help you Jacko, but as Tom suggests, try monitoring the taskmanager (both processes and performances tabs) first. Good chances are there is some program running in the background that might be drainin...
