......with all that security flaw hub bub maybe this wasn't just a random purchase after all
yep ... and with the fact that "Pinnacle Ridge" will be on AM4 too ... with backward support via BIOS update to the 300 series chipset ...

for me my money is on AMD for my next upgrade .... i don't want 4C/4T (my current 6600K) for the same price of 6C/12T (as it is actually with my options ;) ) or a 6C/6T with a security flaw and a hefty overprice + the need of a new mobo either ...

either way .... selling my old mobo/RAM/CPU will yield me nearly the full retail price of a R5 1600/1600X build :laugh: (if the potential buyer, usual target: Intel fanatics don't read about the news ... you know, those who are "Intel is the only one for me" :) )

I need to take a pic of the mounting arm. Thankfully that was an option with the upright on the desk. I did have to carve away part of the mounting plate when I found it obstructed the majority of the ports. It's made for up to 55" screen (VESA 400x400), so no worries about bearing capacity.



Honestly, this is more comfortable than my old 24" 2405 FPW monitor. I usually sit about 3-4 from the screen, and the curve helps. I haven't played any real FPS games yet... maybe my opinion will change after that.
29 inches and curved is a big difference from 55 inches and flat. I can see 29 maybe even 30 but anything significantly greater than that ,it's senseless playing anything first person shooter based

Bought a new cooler since I wasn't that happy with the CPU temps.:(
After installing the new cooler I still wasn't that happy, then today I decided to do some more reading in the motherboard manual,
I looked at "CPU core/cache voltage", it was set on "Auto":banghead:, I have set it to "Adaptive" now.
Which turns out that the CPU runs 10 degrees cooler now under load...:wtf::nutkick:
SOOO, never leave this setting on "Auto".:ohwell:

Just tested GTA V, 44 degrees core temps max @ 4.0GHz all cores. (17.5 ambient at that time though).:rockout:

Anyways, I'm all good now.:D:p

I sent the M04 siege back after 13 days. It didn't meet my expectations, although I admit it's a good mouse for the price. It's super smooth and precise and looks great, but has flaws too. It's too long and narrow, can't decide how to grip it, neither palm nor fingertip grip sytle feels good. Second of all, the long and narrow left button is pretty uncomfortable to use in long gaming sessions, plus it's loud. The build quality is my numer one concern, seems like the mouse is well built overall but the buttons are far from perfect. When you lift your finger after pressing the left and right, it rattles and it's super annoying, especially when you have to press and hold the button several times, probably a combination of a loosely fitting button and the coating on the mouse which should be less sticky when touching. I got G403 wireless today and I can already see it's got none of those issues and feels perfect in my hand, should've gone with it in the first place. Nevertheless, I'll give creative m04 a solid 4/5 for its perfect smoothness,precision and amazing looks, and recommend it for people loooking for something in that price range.

PSU was in need of replacement and I run out of thermal paste, so I used the occasion to order both. Seems like a decent unit, but only 3 years warranty. Little light on connectors IMO, and some of the wires are pretty short. I really like the fact its 140mm, because I definitely need that extra 1cm on the bottom. ( thaaat didn't came out right :D )

Menyoo got an update (for GTA V) so I started using that again...
With using menyoo mod things change though, the CPU gets hammered some more...
When lots of things/explosions going on it runs 58c core temps max @ 20c ambient, 1440p , 72fps.

(with Asus AI 3 uninstalled though, running CPU fan profile at "Standard" now in BIOS)

Sam is my buddy. He's pretty much all over my hardware and he sheds bad. He's first at the door when UPS brings another box because he knows that's play time.
He loves the boxes. Luckily I taught him to tolerate the vacuum

Nice!

Time to update your system specs...:D:D

What are your CPU temps with that cooler?
How about overclocking and temps?
Haven't really tweaked much, but a simple 50x Multi on all cores pushes the vCore to 1.372v on AUTO, which I think is pretty neat and for an auto setting rather accurate. Its not AVX stable then though, and core temps spike to 92-95C (only briefly) and stabilize at 85-90C with AVX. A tad too high for my liking.

I kinda predicted for myself that with this setup/cooler I would be able to handle 1.35v and that seems perfectly accurate, when I put an offset to hit that voltage, I get 1.344v in AVX and I can push 4.8 on all cores stable. 4.9 bluescreened on me with OCCT Linpack. Temps spiked to 90C (only once) and stabilize at 80-85C. Its on the edge for my tastes, but I never use 12t AVX loads, so I've already settled for 1.35v and I'm going to play within that budget. There's a lot of a smaller voltage tweaks to be had, and I may even just disable HT until I find a workload that really benefits from it, and chase that 5.0 GHz again :)

For non-AVX stress testing (OCCT regular, 15min run) I'm looking at 60-75C tops on this cooler @ 1.35-1.36v which is pretty awesome for a heatsink and two fans IMO.

Gotta say as well that this K6 is a REALLY nice board. Good UEFI, everything works well, but of course, the software tweaker in Windows (F-Stream) is a steaming pile of crap :D Already crashed on me several times, and GOD is it slow and heavy. After my little OC adventures I touched the VRM/heatsinks: lukewarm at best. This board could probably sustain 1.5v easy and fry that CPU.

As for the CPU, its not a dud, its not a golden ticket either. I can live with that ^^

Thing I'm most in love with right now though is that case. So compact for ATX, its brilliant.
