Re: The new Good morning Thread!

I'm not dead. Not yet anyway :lol:
Nice seeing peeps are still around. I've been mainly hanging around the Anandtech Forums, but don't do much posting anywhere compared to the past.

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

LOL! Physic is correct! So yes, that Strix will feel hotter than hell, but the net affect on room temps are the same. Good luck with your build!

Re: New Kid On The Block, Intel Core i7-8700K

DDR4 ram sure is expensive. Personally, I'm likely to go for 3600 DDR4 CAS 16 as all the Skylake derivative CPUs like RAM speed. The downside, is the prices DDR4 3600 are going for I'll probably...

Re: The new Good morning Thread!

Good afternoon everyone! Been away for a bit as there seemed to be some unpleasantness. FV - you can take me off the daily star dust list. I have a couple of new doctors who have gotten me to a...

Re: ASUS Z370 Motherboards

Interesting. The Formula used to be a good balanced board in years past, it will be interesting to see the final specs and layouts for these boards (hopefully the end of next week when we're...

Re: Coffee Lake Gaming Build

H2O cooling won't keep your room cooler, the same amount of heat is extracted from the case (actually, a bit more since it's more efficient). Anyway, good luck with your build - this should be a...

Re: Asus rog rampage vi apex

Nice mobo, definitely the one to get for Skylake-X overclocking. I'm sure the price on that board would make my wallet sweat :p

Good sale on NVMe Drives

Noticed that Microcenter is having a good sale on Samsung 960 EVO & PRO M.2 SSDs! Wish I had a motherboard that supported NVMe (soon AJ, soon :stick:).

Y'all might be all set, but here you are...

Re: The new Good morning Thread!

Yes, it's going to toast the i7 7800x (at stock) with much more reasonable motherboard prices.

Good morning ABXers :tiphat:

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Yeah, nice to see that Asus revised the heatsinks on the Apex (in light of massive power draw from the VRM). Looks like it'll be an awesome motherboard!

That 105C load temp - is that real :look: ...

Re: Intel Core i9-7900X (Skylake-X) Review

Yes, Cascade Lake is LGA 2066. Still will need a new system soon, but SKX didn't turn out well for overclocking (massive power usage). Better motherboards will fix this issue to some extent, but...

Re: Intel Coffee Lake

Heh, my system is getting wonky lately, if I can't figure out what's at fault (looking like a board problem) then I'll be looking at Coffee Lake and Ryzen. I guess running a system for 8 years...

Re: Lost my Best Friend!

Sorry to hear FV & Sandog. Losing a pet is definitely in my bottom ten list. Dog are loyal to a fault, fun and just a head on the lap does so much to calm the nerves. They really are family.

Re: Evga gtx 1070 ftw acx 3.0

Thanks Sandog for the Links. Rocket league doesn't interest me and I don't have a coupon code for Destiny (rats!).

Re: Evga gtx 1070 ftw acx 3.0

Hmm, max overclocks may require using Precision XOC (for benchmarking). My card isn't able to go above 1.95 GHz core with MSI AB w/over clocking and voltage boosts. Seeing how it hit 1.99 when XOC...
