Re: Z97-ws

That area would be the best place to live IMO in the U.S. Great weather and so much to do.

To many people, if I was younger I would be gone, the only reason I'm still here is I was gone for 6 months a year fishing, now I'm to old....lol

Re: Z97-ws

Next to Manhattan it has to be the most touristy place in the US. It was hugely crowded when I was there in the nineties especially on the Oakland side plus your right next to the Oakland airport. Also, your not too old to move. All you need is a car, bike, and PC lol. Go to Arizona where it is warm and quite and get a small place in a no maintenance community.

Thanks Skully. It's a step sideways, but I'll take it anyway.

Re: Z97-ws

Speaking of Manhattan (my home town), when I hit the lottery I see myself in a penthouse overlooking Central Park, or in Trump Tower. Whichever is cheaper.

Re: Z97-ws

Thanks FV. It was an effortless upgrade. With this board and a fresh install of Win10, it's hard to tell what has contributed the most to the improved functionality of my rig.

I'm happy.

How's the WiFi project going?

Re: Z97-ws

Speaking of monitors. I finally got around to getting a decent DP cable - had to with this board.

Compared to my ancient DVI cable I now get sharper and more vibrant text and a slight increase in Watts. Wattage must be because of the Chaining abilites.

Re: Z97-ws

I did notice my old defunct 87-WS was not NVMe compatible. Makes me feel better.

Re: Z97-ws

Good morning everyone. Just thought about it - since I installed this mobo, ABX went down. Hmmm.

Anywho, reading some of the reviews of Kaby Lake and the new 270's, this was a smart move. At best, an upgrade to the latest and greatest 270 would have netted me a whopping 5% increase.

Current build stable, very stable!
