#2164718 Thermaltake Core P3 Wall Mount Case

Posted by Braegnok on 06 May 2018 - 07:40 PM

Lian Li had an O Series chassis awhile back that was wall mount,.. Lian Li PC-07SX is only 8.5" wide and is full ATX, would offer a lot more dust protection for your hardware than the P3,..


looks like MicroCenter may have in stock. http://www.microcent...chassis_-_black

#2163722 Review Question on heat, or cool?

Posted by Braegnok on 05 February 2018 - 06:11 PM

Your chip is fine running at 65c, and real world stress on a hot day being 78c,.. no need to worry till you reach 90c.


Delid is the way to go if you want better temps,.. delided your chip should do 4.7GHz @ 1.2V around 70-75c under load.


Your motherboard supports Xeon chips,.. the Xeon E3-1286 v3 would be only chip close to your i7-4790K,.. and would run a bit cooler running at default 84W 3.7GHz,.. you would be taking a huge performance hit running lower wattage Xeons,.. so your better off sticking with your i7-4790K.

#2162264 power supply 12volt drops

Posted by Braegnok on 13 November 2017 - 06:28 PM


Try confirming power supply is OK with a meter first,.. by measuring Voltage,..Figure 3.18  "Back probing the power supply connectors"  http://www.informit....31105&seqNum=12

I did the back probe a while ago on the 12 volt sata connector and it read fine so it may be another problem, I wonder is it possible the bios got wanky because if I bump the memory up to 1600 mhz (which it is rated at ) or xmp profile it also won't boot, goes into boot loop.



It's the +3.3v and +5v of power you want to check,.. first test pin-8 on the 24-pin ATX connector. If not within range,.. the system never sees the Power_Good signal and therefore does not start or run properly.

#2161856 Intel 8th Generation Core i7 8700K & Core i5 8400 Reviewed

Posted by Braegnok on 05 October 2017 - 02:23 PM

Intel indicated the decision to eliminate Kaby Lake compatibility with Z370 was due, at least in part, to requests from motherboard vendors that the company make a "clean split."


For motherboard vendors, this removes the burden of adding support for Kaby Lake (and requisite validation) during a time when most motherboard vendors are already stretched to their engineering resource limits due to rapid fire Intel and AMD launches.


Rumor is Intel will have Z390 motherboards coming out in 2018,.. that support enhanced IA and memory overclocking, Thunderbolt 3.0 w/ DP 1.4,.. and perhaps eight-core processors.

I have FLDC in Poloniex also, It's fine. And when you sell your FLDC on Poloniex, send BTC back to your Counterwallet it will be same as any other time.


I'm not going to worry about splitting my bitcoin. Will be sticking with Counterwallet & Poloniex,.. an just keep on riding the white pony.
