    Help me decide what to upgrade

    Serious doubt but whatever.

    MSI GTX 1080 Armor OC Power Limited

    Actually anything past the 1.093 voltage step is ignored by the card anyway.

    Firestrike has a CPU test and a combined test in which GPU clocks drop significantly. My question is : is there an actual game where performance does in fact plummet ?

    8+4 pin EATX connectors

    If you look closer the clip on the left corresponds to the leftmost 2 pins. That's an 2+6 pin PCIe connector. To me the left one looks like it can split, possibly. Looks like an 8 pin PCIe connector too.

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    If you are not planning to get anything above a 1060/980 I'd say go for it. I had a an FX 6300 with a 1060 and it worked just fine.

    Intel Core i9-9900K De-lidded, Soldered TIM Outperformed by Liquid Metal

    I doubt they care about that. At this point I am convinced they are doing on purpose to artificially limit their CPUs for one reason or another.

    NVIDIA Rushes in GTX 1060 with GDDR5X to Counter AMD Radeon RX 590 Threat

    Actually there is no proof that this is going to happen anytime soon.

    NVIDIA Rushes in GTX 1060 with GDDR5X to Counter AMD Radeon RX 590 Threat

    Arguably, the same GPU on a newer node is somewhat more interesting than the latter.

    It would require a new die with a different memory controller. Unlikely Nvidia would bother with that. Or they could use a severly cut down GP104 . That's not as crazy as it sounds , that is after all nothing more than a mid-range GPU, size wise. Regardless, how many different 1060s are there...

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    How much better though ? Of the few reviews I have seen people were already using fairly high end coolers that were still not quite enough.

    Apple Event on October 30th: New iPad Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini Could Be Announced

    Hurt feelings and all that. Yeah, I know the drill.

    Very low shadow draw distance, anti aliasing does not work, thin objects like fences shimmer with light

    That's because I have the anti-aliasing ramped up all the way. It's like that everywhere, trust me. That's just how lighting works in this game.

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    So let me get this right, even when they decided to solder the IHS they still somehow managed to do a bad job ?

    Very low shadow draw distance, anti aliasing does not work, thin objects like fences shimmer with light

    The shimmering is caused by high frequency detail or simple aliasing, that's normal. Nothing you can do about that other than to enable higher quality anti-aliasing. Here the game running on max settings on my PC. Same behaviour. So to sum it up, nothing is out of place.

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    Power consumption is shockingly high once overclocked, I really did not expect that.
