    Yeah the new RAM started to boot loop the system (go figure) so I pulled the board an processor. Must have had butter fingers and dropped the CPU right on its corner on a tile floor. The day before I dropped my True Spirit 140 on the floor as...

    Not reboot, but a power cycle, yes it does show again, thankfully. My NVME runs very hot underneath the graphics card too.

    When it shut down, it wasn't overclocked. It does it at random intervals and is a known issue across the Gigabyte and OCN forums. PC shuts down and the red power light goes out like its bricked. It has something to do with the Diagnostic code 56...

    I've had nothing but problems with this board. Shut downs that result in pulling the CMOS battery, lastest F5 BIOS does not throttle to idle clocks while overclocked. (F4 does) NVME drive goes missing if machine is restart from a bad overclock...

    Kyle_Bennett , how difficult is the fan clips on this model? The original true spirit 140 I had was next to impossible to get the fan to clip on.

    The AM4 support sold me on this one. Such a pain to contact the manufacturer and hope they snail mail you a bracket. Phanteks did a good job on my cousin's ph-tc12dx and it arrived in a little over a week but they should be included by now you...

    I literally bought this an hour ago and didn't see this review yet :) I'm glad I bought it because my H110i started sounding like an old 7200 RPM Maxtor with a bad bearing. Throwing in the towel on the AIOs. I found this on ebay if anyone...

    Yep and they have when you look at Tom's power distribution between gaming and then also torture test, the PCIe motherboard current is now pretty stable and within margins. And importantly this is for a 1450MHz 580 model. [IMG] [IMG] [IMG]...

    That in itself probably helped get the clocks higher. GCN has just run its course, its really time for a new architecture.

    I'm more concerned about the PCI-E power draw than anything which has probably been completely fixed on the RX 580.

    You can only bandaid the same architecture for so long. It is showing. Look at Intel's microupdates to their CPU lines. AMD is doing the same on the GPU side. Vega has to be different, almost completely.

    I thought the hype finally simmered down post RX 480 launch. Much more realistic statistics have even been posted within AMD lately. None of this "Overclockers Dream" bullshit being spouted. Their products aren't mind blowing but they are...

    They want to wreck the Vega launch too which they will probably succeed.
