I just pulled the trigger on some more memory on my Z170 build so that I fill all four DIMM slots. Will I have to remove the D15 to access DIMM slots 2 and 4?
Looking for feedback from those with a D15/14 as it would be nice to not have to remove the heatsink.
EDIT: Clearance is not an issue.
I have this same board and did not need to load any additional drivers during installation (2x Crucial MX100s). Created the software RAID and booted to a Win8.1 install disc.
The install media saw the new volume. I did upgrade Intel RST drivers to the latest version from Intel as drivers on...
I was in the same position when I jumped from an i5 2500k to a i7 6700k. Here are my thoughts (you can see my sig to see how my old system stacked up).
The Sandy Bridge part is very capable and if your only objective at this time is increased gaming performance then the GPU is your best bet...
I have been setting my adaptive voltage via the method below:
Staying with 4.5 Ghz and have been able to lower it to 1.3v stable. May push voltages further down but with 1.3v and 62c stress temps I am comfortable.
Hardware Canucks posted the same issue about this in their review of the Z170 deluxe.
I am on BIOSv 0508 on my Hero. I hope another BIOS update will fix the issue.
Edit: My CPU...
No modifications to LLC. Just adaptive v core and multiplier. Curiously though Speedstep is not working properly. Goes down to 40x but not lower at idle.
Idle voltage is at 0.8 which is normal. Perhaps another BIOS update will fix this issue.
I have not seen an authoritative source for safe Skylake voltages. I have a mild overclock on my 6700k and wanted to be certain my voltages were safe.
Running at a x45 multiplier
Max Temp after 1hr: 63c
CoreV: 1.32 (Adaptive set in UEFI)

Mine still says packaging, but I believe it is due to ordering so close to COB Friday (3:40 PM PST). I think many folks who ordered before 3PM PST got shipped on Friday per NewEgg's statement below
From NewEgg order confirmation:
"Please keep in mind that if the order was placed after 3 PM...
I have one EVGA GTX 670 2GB FTW card to sell. This 670 is using the slightly longer 680 PCB and clocked to near 680 speeds. I hope that I can find this card a good home and maybe even someone who could use it for SLI :D
Part # 02G-P4-2678-KR
$170 + S/H

A couple of ideas:
1) Do a thorough cleaning on your PC. If the stock cooler was caked with dust, then odds are the entire machine could use a good cleaning.
2)Optimize Airflow: If there is anyway to tidy up the cable management, remove unused drive bays, add an extra intake fan on the bottom...
Those symptoms suggest that the video card driver is crashing or that the card itself is defective. Ive received the same error message when trying to game with an unstable overclock.
The best bet would be to try another video card/clean install of drivers and see if games still crash...
I played the game just fine yesterday running 12.6 WHQL drivers. Installed 12.7 and am getting the following bug.
When outdoors (indoors the hud scales properly), my hud is stretching beyond the screen. See link for screenshot
I have cleared my .inis and local preferences, reinstalled...
To the OP:
My system is almost identical to yours.
Upgrading from an HD5850 to a 6970 was a great investment! It allowed me to go from High to Ultra on BF3, with better framerates!
Yeah, you could wait for HD7000 series. But after all the delays from Nvidia/AMD, I decided to bite the...
The case im using (cooler master 960 ii advanced) has a SATA bay on-top of the case, and im looking to use the SATA hot-swap feature of my Mobo.
Im running a MSI P67A-G45, set to AHCI and the SATA connection on the top of the case has hot plug set to enabled. However, when I plug the drive...
Im surprised by all the "armchair generals" in this thread.
Speaking from the perspective of someone who has ACTUALLY been robbed at gunpoint.
You comply with the Robber, ESPECIALLY if they already have the drop on you.
Yes, you could be shot for complying. Yes, you could be shot while...
Ive been using a few rounds of Battlefield 3 co-op to test my GPU at load. I played for about 45 minutes and the highest temps I got was 82c @ 27% fan speeds (ATI defaults).
My clocks are the following
Core: 880Mhz (stock)
Im thinking, if I do continue to overclock the...
Look for coupons and any sort of discount on the Alienware M11x.
With that being said, if your going to get a dedicated gaming laptop in 6 months. $600 will go along way towards a notebook if your going be spending $1500+ on another laptop in 6 months.
Happy for those that were able to catch in on the craze at the right time. Alot of people seem to forget that a currency is only as strong as the organization that releases them.
Once firms stop taking Bitcoins as payment, then the value is dead.
Check your GPU temperatures when playing TF2. Does this happen after playing for a long time, or only after a few minutes?
Regardless, I would uninstall the current drivers. Reboot into safe mode and run driver sweeper to remove any driver conflicts. Try using 11.9 and see if that takes care...
It might just be an EVGA think. Several of their cards have the HD title, here is the particular card I switched from.
