    Cinebench R20 Released for CPU Benchmarking

    1318 with [email protected] 4.4ghz Hope to see a vast improvement with my new 9600k

    It's very CPU intensive in some areas. I was having dips into the low 50s on a 4770k @4.5GHz and overclocked 1080Ti at 1080p. Ended up using DSR and using half refresh rate vsync for 4K/30 on controller. Feels so much smoother. I am currently using G-Sync for 4k but when it dips below 30 fps then it stutters and it doesn't seem to matter if graphics are on high or medium...I get about the same results with both settings, going to try 2k later today but in the next month I will have money to do a cpu/mobo/ram upgrade

    Have played for about and hour and so far I love the graphics however im currently limited to around 30 to 40 fps because my 3570k just cant keep up... https://imgur.com/PikjMTe

    The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

    Recently bought Amazon Prime ($100/year) plus Amazon Fire TV ($100) for 4K streaming on my TV which meant I needed a new monitor for my computer so I also bought an Acer XB280HK for $422 brand new in box which is way cheaper than I could find anywhere else...got it today and am amazed how much better a monitor is over a TV as a display just sucks they cost so much more for such a smaller display

  24. Well if you run 4 graphic cards and want to watercool them, the cpu, memory and heck nowadays your ssd's I think you'd need all 3 rad bays Thing is if your running 4 cards in sli, there no space to mount a cooler on all of them, you'd still only be using one cooler on GPU's right?, and you gonna be using rads for you RAM? If you use 4 of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1N84V81852&cm_re=gtx_1080-_-14-500-406-_-Productyou can connect them together...probably use a dual rad loop and a single rad loop for your cpu/memory Edit: XSPC also makes waterblocks and sli flow bridges http://www.xs-pc.com/waterblocks-gpu/
