My motherboard claims how high the bus can oc, but at 103 the usb goes nuts.
the 6700k great performance in game, compared to my 920 I pretty sure my 660gtx is the weakest link now, here is hoping the 1060gtx, is 250$ I will buy that for my next card. if I dont wait to gen after the 10xx, which might be when HBM2 memory becomes standard?? and more widely available.
I haven't been in the hardware world for a while and I'm pretty excited about building a skylake build! Just ordered a i5 6600k, gigabyte g1 series 7 mobo (haven't been too impressed with ASUS mobo) 16 gigs of corsair RAM at 3200. Nothing to fancy beyond that. Not really an "upgrade" from what i have now but i want to build a new computer for the 10xx series. once aftermarket 1070's become available I will defiantly be grabbing a pair of those
Fingers crossed for no DoA!!
Hi ALL......... am using i7 6700k, MSI Z170A Krait gaming
want to know is it safe to install Thermalright Venomous x on i7 6700k? some sites show bending pins of Skylake due to cooler's pressure
this cooler has a screw for 40 lbs and 70 lbs variable pressure, would 40 lbs be fully safe for i7 6700k? if 70 lbs is a risk
Decided to upgrade my good ol' C2D E8400 (3@4GHz) that served me well like 8 years . Think I should see some performance boost
Waiting GPU prices to stablilize a bit before buying new one though. 1070 most likely.
Welcome and enjoy your new beastly rig! :thumbup:
Good ram choice. Those can do easily 3600MHz CL16 and higher!
Well that's an understatement!
Some performance boost .. hehehe.
Asus bios version 1701 update has failed 3 times on my PC and required me to use flashback but today I tried it again using a fat32 usb stick (hoping for a fix for certain things) and ... it worked?!
So strange. I've done dozens of bios updates through my internal drives and for the first time installing from my ssd/internet failed but usb worked.
I think back in the old days we made sure by flashing twice. I'm not saying I recommend to do it that way though, but, I still do occasionally.
that also had super low clock speeds, it more of bandwidth thing I want the bandwidth and I want these sub 256bit bus cards to stop
Got some new ram to play with! F4-3000C14Q-32GTZ(4x8GB)
Besides W10 feeling a bit more responsive(palcebo?) and my iGPU playing Crysis 4K@120FPS, haven't had time to check properly.
Just got them today. Will be posting any worthy info. :thumbup:
P.S: Must re-tune my MB bios because I get same latency at AIDA with 3733C16 and 4000C17. Hmm.
man feeling jealous here.
building a new skylake build for my dad ....
those memory speeds are impressive.
I cant reach that with my build...
I can do better, I believe.
Next, IBT for 3 hours.
Done. Needed to increase VCore from 1.385 to 1.390.
New bios released for asus max 8 hero. version 1902 now.
Looks like a good chip! 70'C? What's your ambient/room temps? 10'C?
I'm on 1701 now. Will check that 1902 info if any. Thanks lucidus.
At the time, ~ 76°F/24°C.
New RST for skylake and newer - 220.127.116.114 WHQL. Probably a good idea to update if you're using Windows 10 1607.
are those available on intel site as offical RST? cause I only use those??
I might try seeing Current RST drivers seem to be random reseting raid0 which is the SSD which same ssd from my old pc that did same thing till I changed the RST drivers.
