Go to system BIOS and reset it to defaults and all Cores should be enabled. Dont bother getting 32GB of RAM. Yours system is never going to use that much.

DRAM is not directly increasing your speed.

Its' purpose is to be a dynamic memory for your CPU so it will work stable instead of chaching everything to your harddrive which is wayyy slower.

So to sum up: Simply adding more RAM won't make an old Atari console to a modern competition console.

It's only there to make your CPU and your whole processing like it should be: smooth.

Why did you deactivate 2 cores and how many wattages do you have left? (Wattage of your PSU pls)

Which graphics card do you have?

Which games do you play and what are you ecspecting to reach?

e.g. 4k gaming or lower resolution like 1080p high fps?

Hi Marcel, Hi Orjon

First thank you both for your fast answer. I never deleted thees 2 cors my Motherboard was running in default possition and I wanted thees 8 cors but I could only enable 6 of them and thats the reason why I'm asking. I will try your advice Orjo and see if it helps.

I don't play much, I play some of the WWC games, but I make Films which I like to look in 4k

I have a AMD Radeon R9 200 serie Graphikcard, it's not the best but I have 3D and 4K whith it

AMD is Realy good and doesen't cost much for what they Perform, have had AMD GPU's in the three last computers that I've build and in the this and the second one I had AMD CPU's.

They are at least as good as Intel but less expensiv.

I like when my machin runs fast, I don't have that patience, don't like waiting. My first pc 1986 (LOL) I had to have patience,wow that was a thing, in those years we were Proud when we had a 250MB HD and 8MB RAM LOL, it toke almost 15 min tIl it was booted.

Thank you Guy's I will follow your advices at ones

And again: which graphics card do you have exactly? there is a big difference between a 270 and a 295x2 since they are booth cards of the 200-series.

If it is so you got a really great gaming rig.

The 280/X is a great card for 1080p gaming and I used it for myself for nearly 2 years.

Try to get some informations about your card on CPU-Z or the backplate on your card.

There should be a few barcodes in which the cardname should be noted.
