  1. Moving Application settings/preferences from one PC to another


    Greetings Helpful Board,

    Y'all are awesome. Helped me in so many turns and twists along my 2.3 year journey from Mac to PC. I'd be dead in the water without you. I just Googled the following question but got nowhere.

    My wife has two programs on a PC. A CAD program and Adobe Acrobat Reader. We just spent $200 on an expert guy to get those apps to work with each other in such a way to please a 19 year old HP printer. (Don't ask.) Anyway --

    -- I now need to recreate the same situation on a different PC. Does Windows 10 store a preferences folder for each application? So that I could 1.) copy off of former PC and 2.) install onto the new PC?

    Did that make sense in Windows 10 language? Or is there a Windows way to do this?

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Moving Application settings/preferences from one PC to another

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
