#2167292 Slicks i7 build

Posted by Braegnok on 17 January 2019 - 05:05 AM

Always a good idea to do extensive research if your planing on overclocking, before buying hardware for a new build. 


It's difficult to stay in the sub-$200 range when buying an overclocking/gaming motherboard, but their are a few exceptions.    https://www.overcloc...gaming_edge_ac/

#2166007 Looking for insight for etched lighted plexi window

Posted by Braegnok on 29 September 2018 - 10:10 AM

There are some different ways to do it without having access to a Co2 laser cutter, using etching cream, acetone, but tracing over the image using a cordless dremel seems about the easiest way,.. and using LED strips or light tape.


Sounds like a fun DIY project.  :)

You can improve the write data transfers by activating write caching in Windows, but be sure to Eject USB Mass Storage before unplugging drive. 


Locate the USB flash drive and right-click it to select Properties.

Click the Hardware tab.

Highlight the USB flash drive.

Click the Properties button.

Under the General tab, click Change Settings.

Click the Policies tab.

Select Better performance and click OK. 

#2165097 NVIDIA Apparently Having Over-Supply Issue

Posted by Braegnok on 20 June 2018 - 09:45 AM

You reap what you sow, I hope those cards rot in the warehouse. :lol:


NVidia disgusted me with there Not Available BS claim on all cards at nvidia store all year,.. while sending cards to price gouging retailers to be sold at insane prices to consumers,..


,.. only way to get a new card was to buy from retailer charging $1200 to $1500 for a $699 card. 


Looks like most folks have had enough,.. and shut down there mining rigs, sold cards, quit building new rigs, and most likely will switch to AMD Graphics if they decide to start back up in the future.

I went with Micro Center Denver and ended up saving a lot more money on items,.. didn't think to check prices this morning, I just tried to order from the egg,.. lesson learned. 


Everything worked out, was worth the trouble driving to Denver for close to $400 savings.  

#2164984 2700x vs 8700k 1080 ti in sli ?

Posted by Braegnok on 10 June 2018 - 05:06 PM

If anyone has a 2700X running 1080 Ti SLI go ahead, let's see what that 8-core can do,.. actually it would be interesting to see anyone's score regardless of how many cores or cards your running.   :cheers:

#2164977 2700x vs 8700k 1080 ti in sli ?

Posted by Braegnok on 09 June 2018 - 11:51 AM

+1,.. once you overclock the hardware, the 2700X chip would most likely be outmatched by the 8700Ks higher clock frequencies. 


At standard clocks for gaming, the victor would be Intel's 6-core i7-8700K. For productivity at standard clocks, it goes to AMD's new 8-core R7 2700X  (yet can go back to Intel once overclocked, depending on the software).

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.
