I understand it's not about power. They are not rated for 5GHz at all, but I'm still wondering if they would be able to pick up something from that range. I mean, a coat hanger isn't rated for OTA television, but people can make it work sometimes.
This will also happen to your new heatsink dondan. As I said, people don't know their ram height, and also don't want their ram choices to be restricted.Anyone interested in a like new Nexus 7000 r2, with all the parts, I'll throw in a scythe slim stream 2000rpm 120mm fan plus some copper mosfet heatsinks.
I tried to get this to work with my Asus z270i and ripjaw 5 ram to no avail. The even with the heatsinks removed, my ram was an issue, and I just don't feel like buying ram to make this heat sink work. This will work fine with VLP ram + 120mm. If you have that this would be great. Since my ram is too tall the largest fan I can fit with heatsink removal is a 100mm, which wouldn't be taking advantage of the whole heat sink.
I'm just charging what I paid for the heatsink plus shipping.
Ive been on some evga forums since then and people are coming to the conclusion that my acx 1080 needs to step up to icx 1080 and only then could i step up to 1080ti....Step up program is for trading in your used cards for an upgrade. I would contact cs or start the process to make sure your card is eligible.
Yes, mine's still in Frankfurt. I think it may not update until it actually arrives at the US carrier's spot and gets sent out for delivery from there, in my case USPS. (DHL transferred my package over to them). And I'm not 100% sure we are getting a plane ride either.
A local retailer dropped the prices of their 7700k's this morning by $50. I jumped on that and a Strix.
Can't wait for these cases to reach NZ
Finally got my system built. Running a 7700k and evga 1080 SC2 with the new icx cooler.
Getting max temps of around 78c for the CPU and an impressive 63-65c for gpu. Not bad! And have these cool new TridentZ rgb ram in there.
Approx. 24mm between the EK waterblock and the edge of the case.
In other news, I had to remount my block (it was off a bit) and my thermals are now as follows:
Ambient 21 C.
i7 4790K OC'd to 4.6 GHz @ 1.3v:
@ idle: cores are 20-22 C.
@ 100% load: the cores range from 66-74 C. Minor jumps up as high as 76 C on one of the cores.
GTX 980ti OC'd to 1500 MHz clock, 7012 MHz memory:
@ idle: 21 C.
@ 100% load: 39 C.
My cooling solution has a D5 vario at setting 3 and a 480mm x 60mm thick rad with fans at 600rpm (can't even hear them a foot away from me).
All in all I'm quite happy with this. Cooling could be better if I ramped up the fans but I like peace and quiet haha.
I don't believe that is the case. My guess is you would choose the product you want to step up to and the value difference would be paid. It wouldn't make much sense to step up to another 1080.Ive been on some evga forums since then and people are coming to the conclusion that my acx 1080 needs to step up to icx 1080 and only then could i step up to 1080ti....
if it's true then it's pretty frustrating since the icx version wouldnt exist if they got their burning vrm right the first time.
Can anyone please post the PSU and the custom cable length that worked for you? Not able to find those posts.
It's really not as hard as you may think. We did my buddies 3770k in about 15 minutes. The thermal paste looked terrible and was chalky and didn't have good coverage. We did it with a thin bladed razor and slowly worked around the chip until it was easily pulled off. Redid the paste with some Liquid ultra, reseated the cpu and it was good to go. Reduced temps 15c and made his cores consistent temps. Before 2 cores were at least 10c higher then the others. Really awesome how much better it runs now. At idle it will get down to 17c. He does have a full custom water loop but still pretty impressive results.Oh did he delid his? I'm not comfortable with delidding processors.
