Its 120mm fan so its about around size of CM 212 or Noctua U12S and performs close to the U12S, anything smaller would be in another class of...
Since there no ID on that chip, lets wait to see if it really is 8 core and not 16 core server CPU.
there is no info here, just BM#
How is this new.
There are reviews out long time and is way over priced for its performance....
I don't see how this helps much as pressure will go to CPU core which is not supported by shim , sure it takes up space were the heat spreader was...
Ah, I must be blind , I looked right at pic and missed the offset .
You are right .
I am not sure I follow them, a 140mm fan/HS will block top PCIE slot , if top, first slot is VGA use .
There 140mm is 150mm wide .
From pic's it doesn't look that big but the spec dimensions are
502 x 380 x 640 mm
(19.8 x 15 x 25.2 inch)
That huge case .
How do you know Skylake will only be 1.5% or very low single thread performance increase .
I haven't seen any leaks yet
It being reported to have e-cache to, that is why the L2 is smaller compared to 4590/4790 , they needed to make room for the Iris Pro 6200 e-cache .
Yes, it a nich market for this, not much use for desktop but for photo-editing (any high res app) its good .
Not until windows can scale app size better on desktop .
Huh? , this shows the oposite of what would expect .
While all manufactures are going to go to 3d ram , it seems for mid range right now you don't...
Dark rock 3 will be better cooler, this cooler is only 3 heatpipe and 145mm high .
My guess a 212evo would be = or > .
ok, this is my last post on this , no need for PM . were talking OC'ed here not stock clock .
All I am going to say is this, if you put voltage...
Since we were talking oc , i was talking max TDP , a MSI 970 gaming power target (from bios) is at 100% = 200w, and with power slider max its 220w...
my MSI 970 coil whine is about same as the 660ti it replaced .
there not much you can do, it does tend to get slightly quieter the more it runs ....
your 980 PT is 240'ish watts (depending on version) and most go to 120% on slider, 970 go 110-112% but again % is misleading as depends on bios...
hmm, you sure, to be honest I never used the log feature, I find senor output fine . I normally use AB though , I can tell you I am 95% sure he is...
ok, I will try an help you out , for one don't worry about buzzing you hear while BM(especially at end screen where fps go like xxxx fps), that...
I wouldn't want that back plate as VRM area is not vented , unless they moved them to were 980 PCB is .
To me these curved screens are more marketing at this size , unless its bad TN panel, 27 is not that big were your not infront of screen edges .
Make sure you got speedstep and turbo enabled .
like other post above , in CPU tests what was clock on this and others it the graph .I assume the Z87/97 MB had 4770 or maybe 4790k .
how is it a disappointment , its a re-release of basically same chip but clocked higher for same price .
