    X370 bios update

    If your system is overclocked it is advisable to reset the BIOS to default before updating,.. mainly to ensure you do not have any unstable system overclocks applied that could cause the system to hang while flashing.

    New 4K HDR Gaming Rig

    So far everything is scaling great no issues on the few games that I'v played @ 4K HDR,.. Rise of the Tomb Raider, and F12018. +1 on disabling HDR if it does not work, and running @ 4K UHD. I was having issues with Steam crashing while downloading updates yesterday but seems OK now,.. looking forward to issues though utilizing DLSS and DXR/RTX,..

    New 4K HDR Gaming Rig

    System is pulling 1400W+ with all 8-cores @ 5.3GHz and both cards OC +200/850. NVLink-based SLI multi-GPU technology seems to have lots of potential, though it is still in the early phases and the technology isn't being fully utilized with current applications. In reality, multi-card scaling depends on support from developers, but it is exciting to see a breath of new life given to multi-card configurations running NVLink. 3840 x 2160 HDR gaming is indeed epic.

    New 4K HDR Gaming Rig

    It's been awhile since I posted any new system builds, so figured I'd post my latest build. CPU : i9-9900KS MOB : Asus Maximus XI Apex GPU : NVLINK RTX2080Ti FE SLI RAM : G.SKILL F4-3600C14D-16GTRSB Primary : Samsung 970 Pro 512GB Storage : Corsair Neutron XTi 1920GB PSU : Corsair AX1600i Chassis : Thermaltake A700 TG Cooling : Corsair H150i Pro Display : Predator X27 Audio : SteelSeries Arctis Pro Keyboard : Das 4 Ultimate Mouse : Logitech G Pro OS : Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit Running single card till December 4th, I screwed up and ordered 4-slot bridge and need a 3-slot. So if anyone needs a 4-slot RTX NVLINK bridge PM me it's for sale. 3DMARK default settings single card run. http://www.3dmark.com/spy/9511408 AIDA64 Cachemem run.

    Overclock disappointment!

    Just wondering if your card has GDDR6 Micron memory. I have had a ton of issues with RTX cards with the Micron memory,.. and absolutely no issues with RTX cards with Samsung GDDR6. GPUZ will show memory type and personally I feel the Micron memory causes stability issues, even at default settings and if you overclock it's worse.

    Upgrade for i5 3570K

    Nice looking hardware! The MSI Z390-A Pro is the only MSI board to include a D-Sub video output which seemingly replaces the HDMI, and also they included a DisplayPort and DVI-D output. I like the simple aesthetics, the coffee colored PCB with silver patterning across it looks sweet, Intel I219V and Realtek ALC892 are solid controllers.

    Video power question

    Hay Cespenar, happy turkey day. I'm thinking your hardware is fine, it's far above system requirements for that game. It's most likely a known bug, Frontier made a post about it a few months ago. Turn off FX Effects completely seems to fix the issue. Last I heard patch apparently on the way to address it. Has been reported awhile ago in known bugs. https://steamcommunity.com/app/359320/discussions/0/1678064284142593217/

    Extending WiFi network

    Wireless repeaters/extenders are a great quick-fix solution to a lot of smaller households with low WIFI usage/devices but, considering the loss of performance and potential speed drops and network loss,.. the Wireless Access Points are the way to go being able to outperform the wireless repeaters in many ways, especially if you want to watch Netflix or use it for gaming, or even just watching your smart TV in the shed, or across the street at a friends, due to the very minimal loss of performance and receiving maximum speed. Also, being able to have a single wireless name across the entire wireless range allows for a more clean and user friendly environment. Be sure to shop around and compare features/prices and confirm what's best for your application before buying.

    Extending WiFi network

    Access Point would be my recommendation, they come in different price ranges depending on what you want. https://engenius.factoryoutletstore.com/details/494561/engenius-ens620ext.html?category_id=30439&catalogitemid=449928

    If you have a direct line of sight you will be fine using an access point.

    Upgrade for i5 3570K

    You need to consider your Z77 platform is 7-years old, you could replace i5 chip with i7 chip, and see an improvement. My advise would be upgrading platform to Z390 and i5-9600K, you would see a huge improvement. i5-3570K vs i5-9600K : https://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/compare_cpu-intel_core_i5_3570k-324-vs-intel_core_i5_9600k-889

    What's The Best Hsf For A Barton?.

    Not sure which Barton you are referring to? They range in TDP from 68.3 for the 2500 up to 79.2 for the 3200. It's an older AMD Athlon XP socket A 462 chip so new coolers might be hard to find,.. if you can find the Vantec Aeroflow VA4-C7040 cooler, it should work fine.

  15. I'm a big fan of your PC Case Mods, and remember a few years ago I sent an aluminum bezel to your company,.. and they used a CNC Waterjet cutting machine to provide ventilation holes. And it was beautifully done, I was hoping to have the same water jet done on a new build I'm starting, the chassis is the Thermaltake A700 TG,.. while unfortunately I cannot find the link or shipping address,.. was wondering if you guys still offer this service for custom CNC Waterjetting on solid aluminum bezel's, could you PM me or post a link. Wanted to water jet the front & top panels with slots, similar to side ventilation slots if possible. https://www.thermaltake.com/a700-aluminum-tempered-glass-edition-full-tower-chassis.html Thanks.
