Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Video Card Review

I'm digging the 1070, looks like it will fit my needs nicely. Now to see what the non-founders cards are like...

EK has waterblocks for the 1080 Founders card, hoping they will make one for non-founders cards. really nice if they make one for the 1070's as well.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition Video Card Review

Looking forward to the 1070 as well. I'm holding off on buying a new card until I see the reviews for it.

If it wasn't for my need of optical drives I would have one of these for my office PC and an ultra wide screen monitor.

Re: Minimalist 4K

Yeah, I know two ways I can go is putting a better GPU that actually supports the resolution (you are right that 460 doesn't) or new-gen motherboard/CPU combo are the ways to go. Wanted to know if anyone has good experience with 4K on lower-end components, like, for example, if passive-cooled GPUs ...

Re: Minimalist 4K

ehh.. haswell CPUs can play 4K video with the integrated graphics.

Cram as much RAM into that system you can, and slap a GTX7xx series card in there should be fine.


Gamming at 4K, thats a WHOLE other issue.

Re: Thermaltake Core X2 water cooled build

Got fittings in, tubing ran, and been running the pump to bleed air from the loop and leak testing. In the process things got added to the "To-Do" list. -Shorten pump power wires, and sleeve the RPM lead. -Make up/buy SATA power extensions for SSD's. Stock power supply cables are too stiff...

Re: Where are the Xeon Skylake Reviews?

My guess would be that its because the Xeon CPUs are more workstation/server oriented than desktop use, thus why no one has reviews on them. That, and mobo chipsets for the new Skylake Xeon's are also way limited. Not like in the past where you could get an enthusist board and run a Xeon on it, thin...

Re: Autocad doesn't open on the new OS

Yup, 2006 in Win7 is sketchy. 2009 is the lowest you can run for Win7 and be stable (I think) We currently run 2013, no issues on Win7. I have tried 2013 on Win10 and it gets flaky, and Autodesk is not patching it to run on Win10 either. What sucks is that now Autodesk doesn't do standalone perpetua...

Re: Cryorig R1 Ultimate CPU Cooler Review

I'm VERY interested as well.

Most runs I have seen with 4790k's at 4.7 are routinely hitting 95*C with 30+ minute runs with current versions Prime. some are going as far as pulling the heatspreader off to get every degree they can.

current version of Prime is insanely hard on a CPU.
