    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I'm having an issue with Deep Sleep on this monitor, PC specs in sig. - With Deep Sleep disabled, the monitor works as expected, but the internal fan stays on (audible in a quiet room) and the monitor consumes up to 15-30w even with the PC off. - With Deep Sleep enabled, the monitor will wake...

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    Dan_D When I saw the topic "Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99?" posted I was excited to see a [H] comparison of X99 chips (5960X, 6950X, etc) vs X299 chips (7900X, etc). Instead we get an editorial piece that explains details that we could have just read from the spec sheets. With...

    Blast from the Soltek Past

    I chose the Abit NF7-S instead of this board, mainly due to the color! The all yellow design looked like Fisher Price made the damn thing...

    Gigabye GA-X99-GAMING 5 won't load BIOS>

    Do you have any drives connected that previously had data on them? That was the issue for me any many others on Gigabyte X99 boards. Disconnect your SSD/Hard drive and you'll be able to get into the BIOS just fine. See the X99-Gaming G1 issue tracker here

    The headphones do not buzz at all, it's the Center Channel of the 5.1 system that buzzes when headphones are selected. Select speakers, no buzz. Select headphones, center channel buzz.

    Gigabyte GA-X99-Gaming G1 WIFI - Issue Tracker

    Added 2 more issues with the onboard sound which is a shame given the highly touted audio capabilities of this board. (I mind as well use retro's BIOS above and go back to the Essence STX I've had since 2009) Updated issue 2 with some overclocking settings.

    Gigabyte GA-X99-Gaming G1 WIFI - Issue Tracker

    Thanks retro. I see you have 2666MHz memory in your sig. Were you able to get your memory running at 2666MHz using a 1.0 BCLK multiplier? If so, are you able to overclock the CPU with the memory at that setting?

I'm currently using a Gigabyte X99-Gaming G1 on BIOS F8c and using XMP settings or manually raising the memory frequency past 2133MHz will automatically set the BCLK multiplier to...

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    A single GPU system shouldn't be that bound by an 8150. While not the fastest CPU out there, scaling is pretty nominal for mid-range to high end CPU's as games are normally GPU bound. Example using a GTX 580 here: I would go ahead and do the upgrade to the 290X using the old 8150 and enjoy...
