  1. Hello, old friends! After a long time away, I've finally bought some nice gear and will get back into O/Cing shortly. Here's a list of what's going into my new system:


    • Asus Z170-A
    • Intel Core i5 6600k
    • Gigabyte 1050ti
    • Corsair H60 watercooling (I know, I know - but I like the all-in-one design)
    • Samsung EVO 960 NVMe
    • EVGA 650W Bronze


    My question is about RAM - I originally bought G.Skill 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 Trident Z. The board should have accepted DDR4 3200 sticks from what I can tell, but for some reason I couldn't get it to POST - I'm using a spare 2133 stick for now, and the system is up and running. I plan to push the i5 to 4.6GHz and want to get 16GB in with decent CAS latency and timing that can handle a little O/Cing.


    Any recommendations would be appreciated.



    As always... DTTL! :ph34r:

  2. So long as this site stands, it will always be a home for me.


    I'm not actively OCing these days, but I think this site is still a valuable place to learn about the ins and outs of PC architecture, system modification, and just enjoying the company of others who appreciate pushing hardware to the limit.


    Till next time, DTTL :)

  3. Hello my beloved OCC. How I've missed you :)


    Believe it or not, I'm still using the same rig in my signature... I just didn't have the time or money to build something new since my daughter came along.


    I think the dust has settled a bit, and I may be able to afford some new parts, so I'm looking to OCC, my old haunt, to find the first piece to my new puzzle.


    If you have an i7 920 that you're looking to get rid of, just reply or PM me.


    I'm also looking for any relatively modern parts if you are willing to sell them for cheap, or just want to give an old user a hand-me-down.



  4. dx11 runs on dx9, 10, 10.1 and 11 hardware. but it simulates the dx environment on hardware that isnt native 11. I have 7 and 7 does indeed run dx11. but I have a 4870 which is 10.1, so if I were to buy dirt2 and play it, it would run in dx10.1 even though 11 is installed. it just wont do the dx11 specific functions because my hardware doesnt support it
