hehe nice on there
Tried swapping the sticks around ?
quite a light show u got there
Indeed, it is! I was almost shocked the first time I put it into the machine.
Contrary too the Noctua website though, it is compatible with the Rampage 5 Extreme. It does not stand into the PCIe slot #1, but it comes very close, with little spacing to the 980 I had in that slot (including backplate).
So you can install it, if it works temperature wise is a different story, since it may not be the best idea to put the CPU cooler to suck in hot air directly from the graphic card's back side.
I will be replacing my Lemon 5930K this week or next week. Just waiting for my Money.. I Will be ordering 5960x..Hope it's a better clocker than my 5930K...
By the way how much can I sell my 5930k? I bought it around December 2014..
I've seen one on sale locally (Vienna) for € 450, on ebay.com I see a single used one for USD 499.99. I'm not sure what your local price level is, but it looks like one could substract at least 10% for a used CPU. Never bought a used one myself though
If testing CPUs out isn't your thing, you can potentially order one from Silicon Lottery, there was a thread made about them not too long ago as well as a review from Hilbert. They sell pre overclock tested CPUs and guarantee certain voltages @ frequency for a relatively small markup (compared to doing it yourself).
Good luck with the 5960. I've had 2 so far. The first wouldnt do above 4.3ghz at sensible 24/7 voltages (1.35v) and the second is only 100mhz better at 4.4ghz, however it won't suffer any kind of bclk overclock so my memory is stuck at stock 2666mhz. If I'd known about silicon lottery at the time I would have used them. Binning £750 chips is expensive business.
Yeah, not many people are a fan of LEDs, but i am
New BIOS just released for the Asus x99-A
EDIT: They've also released it for the Deluxe, and the S too.
any reason why its only showing up under "others"?
am I still ok to use it?
Its showing up under all of them for me, not just the 'others'.
i got it under BIOS only
Yeah so do i, under each OS, not just the 'others' at the bottom.
I don't know why it did that for me. Oh well..flashy flashy!
running my new 5820k at 3970mhz temps are 65c with Bf4, is that ok?
guys im getting like 30-50fps in Bf4 how can this be?
