What Case is that Blade, it looks pretty cool.
the one i use for my Red Blooded Nemesis build in my system specs
Thanks for the info.
Setting up a rad for one of my builds
I really need to make a setup with good lighting
New office, stripped it installed new floor, mop boards, window sill and trim, painted ceiling and walls, polyurethane to protect mop boards and window trim. Used PVC strapping for the drywall seams and then built a photo backdrop using a roll of Savage white background paper and PVC piping.
Just got around to installing all the hardware today. Looks like I am ready to get back to doing reviews!
Wow, what a transformation you made of that place!!! Looks fantastic.
These last couple months I haven't had much luck with hardware, its all broke and died on me. But its my hobby and ill get back on that horse even if it breaks me....
i got my i7-4790k home last friday but my MSI Z87I Gaming AC board ain't really happy about running my Mushkin Redline 2x8gb in X.M.P. mode so they run 2400mhz at 10-12-12-28 it was a hassle to make it accept it. (Feels like i run Intel's Z87 chipset on the edge of what's possible )
but now it does but i can't reboot, only shut down and boot damn MSI make a proper bios for a change bcs i had the same issue with my Intel Pentium G3258 which is a haswell refresh not a Devil's Canyon like my i7
the board however detects the cpu just fine:
sry didn't have a usb pen formatted in FAT32 to make screenshots from the pics so just grapped my Oppo Find 7a
try increased vDIO to enable higher memory dividers.
i will try, if i can find it, when i got some time
Didn't have any trouble getting up to DDR3-2666 with mine.
Performance at DDR3-2800+ was not the best and the board does struggle a bit with 1gbit PSC X / BBSE goodness (and Hypers are a no go). Other than that is felt really solid.
you are running a normal haswell processor not a haswell refresh or devil's canyon only with those 2 cpu's i have had bios trouble.
running my old i5-4570k no problem ever ran it at 4ghz at 1.168v and XMP for memory.
but with the 2 new sku's or what u want to call them, i am facing issues and a got told by Nichrome on MSI's forum that if i want all the features for DC or Refresh to work i should get Z97 board >.<
so i am hoping MSI can come up with a proper bios next time that will allow reboot when i am using a DC or RH cpu when i am using oc.
I thought you had a memory problem with the board, that is why i responded. Now it seems it is a CPU issue more or less, so nevermind.
the problem is running a Haswell Refresh or Devil's Canyon cpu, i have problems running my memory at their rated 2400mhz speed, but with normal Haswell no problem.
So my Corsair RM650 failed. Sent in for RMA. With the RM series the 650 is the one that should be rock solid as its made by CWT. Probably sell it when it gets back. Meanwhile here is its replacement. Was going to get the 750 but the 850 was on sale and cheaper.
Always a chance to get a bad one.... my first Seasonic M12 II 750 died 2 weeks after I started using it- the warranty replacement has been running perfectly ever since I got it
love the new fan.
Testing new retail board
Shame about them not having the voltage check points like before and just solder points. Can you get a realtime voltage read with the oc panel?
I also see some matrix cards in the first pic!
