I have G.Skill Trident Z5 5600C36 with 12900K/Asus Z690 Hero, works perfectly. I went safe as this runs at 1.2V while the 6000 is 1.35V.
DDR4 is a more reasonable choice, but if you don't upgrade often then maybe DDR5 is a better option.
I have a 1000W PSU but my UPS is 900W max. Take out the 3 monitors and network gear hooked up to it and I have about 750W left for the computer.
12900K system without video card maxes out at 300W, so 450W is left for the video card. Hopefully 4080 is under that.
Wait for the next crypto crash, it'll be raining cheap cards on ebay and retailers won't have a choice to sell at MSRP or less. Let's hope it happens in 2022.
Newegg bundles are ridiculous, Canada Computers is a bit better only forcing a motherboard or power supply purchase without inflating...
That guy wrote that he negotiated a deal directly with nVidia for all those cards. That's ridiculous...those cards would all sell at retail easily, so why is nVidia selling in large quantities directly to miners?
Can't wait for Intel to make a 3070 equivalent for less money.
Manual voltage = 1.300V
Load Line Calibration = 4
1-2 cores ratio = 55
3-4 cores ratio = 52
5-8 cores ratio = 51
Used the AI Features page to check what 2 cores required the least voltage. (the "best" cores...)
Set max ratio per core to 52 for the 6 other cores. The 2 "best" cores leave on...
Got another motherboard yesterday and did some testing with Noctua NH-D15S and 12900K... Asus Z690 Hero with MCE disabled, rest is all default. Case is Fractal Meshify 2 Compact with 2x140mm Scythe Kaze Flex fans in front and 120mm in the rear.
Cinebench R23 gave 1994 single core and 27200...
I had all the parts ready on monday but the Asus Z690 Hero I received had a crooked HDMI port so I sent it back for replacement. Now it's out of stock so I'll probably get a refund. Looking at the Aorus Master maybe, or wait for another Hero.
So sad, the most expensive board I've ever bought...
Was planning on the Gigabyte Z690 Aero D, but it's low on rear USB ports and will probably release later. So I preordered an Asus Z690 Hero, as that's the only board I saw with Thunderbolt. The 12900K price was a bit lower than I expected, but the motherboard ends up costing way too much lol...
From my understanding the m.2 slot running off the CPU is PCIE 4.0, and only the 2 PCIE slots are 5.0.
The Asus Z690 Hero can do it with the Hyper m.2 card, but it has to be installed in one of the 2 PCIE 5.0 slots running off the CPU (video card drops to 8X...), not the bottom slot running off...
JBOD is single disks, if one disk breaks it won't affect the other.
RAID-0 is striping, if one disk breaks you lose everything.
RAID-1 is mirroring, if one disk breaks you don't lose anything, but you only get 10TB.
So if you need the 20TB, use JBOD and backup the important stuff.
4K Netflix on PC is a mess. I have an i7-7700, use the onboard video hooked up to a 4K monitor, and it still won't work because my Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 doesn't have the required LSPCon.
I just watch it on my Sony Android TV's native app, has HDR too.
I have a similar issue with Intel graphics and a 1080p--4K--1080p triple monitor setup. The 4K is an LG 27UD68 connected via DisplayPort. When it goes to sleep, it appears as being disconnected and Windows will shuffle opened apps to the second monitor.
Some people are able to fix this by...
The only one is the LG Ultrafine 5K, but it uses Thunderbolt and has no buttons. It's really meant to be used with Macs.
The Dell and HP 5K monitors are from 2 years ago and use 2 DisplayPort 1.2 in MST. Why aren't they updating these monitors with DisplayPort 1.3?
a 40" 4K would be equivalent to a 20" 1080p monitor, higher dpi and smaller text and icons. (110dpi)
A 49" 4K would be equivalent to a 24.5" 1080p monitor, standard dpi. (90 dpi)
A 55" 4K would be equivalent to a 27.5" 1080p monitor, lower dpi and larger text and icons. (80 dpi)
Windows probably recommends 150% because it detects it is a TV, and people sit further from TVs than monitors.
Text looks sharp at 150% because more pixels are used to render the fonts. (kinda like anti-aliasing)
You should be using 1920x1080 with 100% scaling if you're sitting close enough.
Depends if you want to use scaling or not. I have the LG 27UD68 and use 150% scaling so it's equivalent to 2560x1440 desktop space, just sharper. I'm very happy with my purchase.
If you want to leave it at 100%, then 40 to 46" is the sweet spot. Samsung 40KU6300 or Sony XBR43X800D would be my...
I tried BIOS F20b on a Z170X-ud5. It made my onboard network card (Intel 211) appear as a removeable device in the Safely Remove Hardware system icon. Weird... Went back to F5 and it's back to normal.
The new interface is nice. Don't need Kaby Lake support for now, so I'll wait until the BIOS...
