I choose ASUS 980 Strix for quietest (MSI Gaming lack backplate so I choose ASUS).
980 also has very large overclocking potential (980 max oc...
9.2 is too much , I'll give it 7.5
Pros is like wizz said but I'll add cons.
- Lack of VRM cooling
- Overclocking potential is really slim , I...
I play game at 1440p so I choose custom 980 Ti for strong VRM and overclocking potential (probably 980 Ti HOF).
I think Titan X is suitable for...
Overclocking suck so much.
My first i7 is delidded i7-3770K @ 5Ghz 1.35V 24/7 (5.2Ghz multithread benchable / 5.4Ghz Super PI 32m @ 1.52V) cooled by CM Seidon 240M I buy...
Your max GPU boost is 1529 right ? Image is quiet blur.
If yes that's average OC for most 970 , nothing wrong.
My 970 OC work perfectly fine with 1440p but some games I need to tweak , like ACU my setting is everything max except high shadows (reduce from...
Sorry for dumb this post and sorry for my bad English but I want to share some opinion for someone who typing "good CPU for Sims 3 or 4" in...

290 cf is hot like hell. I live in tropical zone (about 33C) my vga in sig. No matter what card on top it always reach 94C even 100% fan and...
Wait for asus pb279q 4k ips under 1000$. It will release sometime in late Q3 this year.
Honestly TN panel suck , Once I switch from TN to IPS I...
Some game like Total War series and most older games with DX9 love IPC and clock speed.
Get 4690K and make it to 4.6Ghz or more that is perfectly...
1440p still need AA but 4K is absolutely not from my try.
Very well test , I still wonder why intel don't use fluxless solder like sandy.
F7 bios has issue with sub timing , I can't change some of it. So I sell it and get Asrock MOBO.
1.4 not 1.5V :roll:
Kraken X60 contact IHS not die.
Nope , I change MB from Gigabyte z87x-OC to Asrock Z87 OC Formula.
I think Haswell cannot change timing in windows but Ivy Bridge can.
Try Intel XTU for 1hr :)
Still love this chip , I think it's better than devil's canyon.
For 4k 60hz go 290 cf or 780 sli.
For 30hz 760 sli should be enough.
But 4k 30hz is meh. I can't play first person or racing game on it. RTS will...
Now I can do 4K 60Hz and further overclock 4670K to 5Ghz (1.4V) to prevent bottleneck as much as possible.
I See bottleneck in GRID 2 when play...
4770K is gambling some can do 4.9Ghz everyday some can't even past 4.2Ghz.
Hopefully 4790K will overclock well like Sandy Bridge.
I have another question my monitor use DVI port to get 4K @ 30Hz (overclocked from 1440p to 4K by CRU).
My monitor support HDMI 1.4a so it cannot...
for 290X / 780 ti 4ways CF/SLI
need strong CPU in singlethread or multithread or both ?
Really need 3930K/4930K ?
Some game not scale well with...
I hope 4790K can do 5Ghz stable on air every chip :D
