  1. At first i wanted to get SandDisk extreme, but 850 PRO was always ahead in benchmarks and it was 1$ USD cheaper, so it appeared to be a much better investment as for why PRO and not EVO, is cause of the nanad TYPE (MLC). Why not go PCI-E this time around? Uhhmm, their price..

  3. As some of you may already know the 840 EVO has issues with accessing files that haven't been used recently. Basically the longer the file goes without being accessed the slower it
  4. How is that even possible ? wouldnt the chip instantly fry ? sometimes i get afraid to raise .025 haha No, you need a lot more to fry a CPU.. You need to run it at max temp for quite some time at high voltage.. I've been running mine at 1.325v for at least a month.. It didn't destroy the chip, it might have damaged it's life span, but if you take into account that these chips designed to run for at least 10 years, then I wouldn't worry about it that much.. EDIT: typo fix.
  5. I was hitting throttling at 100c, at 4.8Ghz, 3.275v. I must say it got hot pretty fast. For the time being running at 4.7Ghz, 2.75v, max temp at 100% load is about 70c-75, AIDA 64/Prime, Corsair H110 with 2x NF-A14 PWM.
  6. I'm running a few VMs(Deabian for development and Ubuntu for making android builds) on my machine + plus have a lot of stuff opened. The average memory use is at about 75%-80% on normal basis, when I startup a game I peak up to 99%, that's the reason why I want to upgrade memory as for the GPU, I plan to upgrade it this year. Also with more memory I can speed up my android builds as I can allocate more memory to VMs.
  7. Sorry my answer wasn't put right, is running 4 sticks will affect OC stability? The memory controller will have to work with 4 sticks instead of with 2, which will put more work load on it. Will it have some kind of effect on my OC. The reason I ask this question because of I have done a research on the topic and the conclusion I came up with is that it's beter to run 2 sticks of memory with an overclocked system rather then 4 sticks => Does it hold any truth to it ? No, running 4 sticks compared to 2 sticks won't affect OC stability most of the time. For example, I have 8 memory sticks on a X79's 3930K at 4.5GHz daily at 1866MHz. It doesn't affect my overclock stability. However, if I try to run those memory sticks at 2400MHz speeds, then yes, it will affect overclock stability, even though I'm stable with 4 memory sticks at 2400MHz, I may not be with 8 memory sticks at 2400MHz. Thank you! I'll get another kit of 2x4.

  9. I would like to upgrade my memory from 8gigs to 16 gigs, the question is should I add another kit of 2x4gigs sticks or get a kit of 2x8gigs (removing my current 2x4 kit and leaving only the new 2x8 kit) From what I read it's prefered to have only 2 sticks for dual channle to keep your CPU oc more stable. Does it hold any truth? Thank you!
  10. Hello, I want to add 4 extra USB 2.0 connectors I want to use a 4 usb plate (http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Female-Plate-Adapter-USBPLATE4/dp/B00015Y0FK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420378416&sr=8-1&keywords=USBPLATE4) The question is, can I use USB13 (as seen in Figure 01) for my USB 2.0 front panel USB, and USB1112 + USB910 for the 4 USB plate? I'm asking this question cause of on MAXIMUS VII HERO User's Manual page 46 USB13 is also labeled as ROG_EXT (Figure 02) as well as on the solder mask(Figure 03). Figure 01 MAXIMUS VII HERO User's Manual page 41 Figure 02 MAXIMUS VII HERO User's Manual page 46 Figure 03A: Thank you <3 Figure 03B: off topic, I have tried posting this on asus rog forums but after editing the post once, the post became unaccusable. Edit: added figure 03A/B
  11. Thanks everyone for you attention, I'll be rolling with SB-E.
  12. Aight!! Which means a i7 3930K along with Asus Sabertooth X79 s2011(or any other X79 chip Motherboard), equipped with Corsair 4x8GB Vengeance Quad (10-10-10-27), in the future I'll get a beter binned ram so 24Gigs should be enough for starters.
  13. So what you are saying I should be looking for more Capacity than for faster latencies?
  14. Hello there <3, it seems like you are still stuck with the same avatar. Well, now that you mention it. I did a bit of research and it seems like a faster dual channel is better when it comes to rendering than a standard quad channel. Uhmmm.... So what do you suggest?,Sir. EDIT: It's simple! Bigger = Better, right?
  15. Thank you! Yeah, don't mention that, the more closer I get the more terrified I'm about what to expect next. University, work... God knows what... It's like resuming your life after almost 4 years of being away, not entirely away but.. You get the point. So I'm looking for Sandy Bride - E, what chip do you recommend? For the best price - overclocking capability?
  16. Hello guys! Sorry I haven't been online on the forums that much in the last 3 years, didn't have the time nor the ability, I'm finishing my Military Service in December, which means I'll be more active on the forums! (YAY!) The ring I'm planing to build will mainly serve me for Gaming, Modeling, Rendering and Software engineering. Looking to build it somewhere around Q1 2013. I want to run a Quad Channel memory. The main question I got is, should I be waiting for Haswel or Build the rig around Ivy Bridge? From what I read online the difference in performances between Haswel and Ivy Bridge will be somewhere around 15% mark, is that all? Is the information correct or just speculations? Thank you!
  17. Yeah, exactly. Edit: Off topic, it seems like your fav weapon is the HK416. Hhhhh I have already scored more than 1000 kills with that weapon, love it!!
  18. The favor Im about to ask may sound a bit weird or childish, but I really want these dog tags. Theres a DR pepper BF3 promotion going on, witch every bottle of DR pepper you buy you also get promotion key under the cup, these keys are used to unlock special DR papper dog tags in BF3. I need these keys. Heres the website for the promotion http://www.drpepper.com/promotions/ea/ You can message me these keys, or just post them in this thread! In israel DR pepper is sold only in special places, and its way expensive. So if you happened to buy a bottle and dont need the key that is under the cup, pleaes share it with me, Thnak you!
  19. Just did a little google search, it seems like the stock design of GTX 570 has only 6 phase VRMs. Thank you Capitan.
  20. Hey guys! So my parents got my a GTX 570 goes like hell edition from GAINWARD, I have overclcoked the card to 900/1800/2000(core/shader/mem). I have used the max voltage that the current bios allowed me which is 1.15v, I have a question is it safe to run the card on its highest voltage(1.15)? I have been playing BF3 for almost a week now with this overclock and I never crashed, also I have ran heavens benchmark few times to check it its stable and it all went well. Is it safe to run a GTX 570 on 1.15v? Thanks in advance! PS: Guess Ill be visiting the forums more frequently now, I have been assigned to help my colonel recruit new soldiers to our SF unit. Which means I wont be deployed till the end of the year... Ill be doing some sort of office job, interweaving 18 year old boys to check if they have what it takes to try and pass the warrior training course to get accepted into the unit.
