Running around the 60s maximum during long non-AAA gaming sessions @60 frames, depending on settings, it is capable of shutting down on FFXV... I've learned not to run on Ultra.

Okay, showoff. lol

Mad respect. It's a thing of beauty. I hope your battle station is proudly displayed in your living room, like the throne it is. This baby's the crown jewel!

Corsair Commander Pro really enables neat stuff for your thermals, as seen in your HUD on-screen.

Would really look forward to you making a loop build guide on YT!

Even though it's not a load shot, nice vCore and idle temps on 5GHz with the 8700K!

I am trying to buy a replacement UPS, but want to get one that can handle the load of the PC. My PSU is an EVGA 1000P2, but never gets remotely close to needing to output its full wattage.

So, I'm needing to know what class (e.g., 900W/1500VA) of UPS to buy to be able to handle my PC in the event of an outtage.

"but it says in bios that my capacity is 16384 mb when it's supposed to be 8192"

16384 is the correct RAM capacity to display for a 2x8GB kit.

You have 16GB kit in there instead of an 8GB kit. (2x8 or 4x4 instead of 2x4) If your BIOS says you have twice as much RAM as you do, thet's a deeper problem. I'd reset your CMOS.

You must manually set it with the timings on the kit. It won't use the memory profile for some weird reason. Leave everything else on "auto" and don't forget to tick up the voltage for the OC.

Should run fine at the changed timings.

I have fans in push-pull on the top of the X52, but only in push on the bottom, due to the GPU's PCB being literally 2 mm from the radiator. I would imagine, if you put the fans on the back side of the rad instead of between the base and the rad, it'd fit, but not in Push-pull on either 120mm socket, due to the fact you cannot mount anything between where the magnetic filter fits and the frontplate of the case.

Cabling-wise, please make sure your cabling utilizes the included grommets/tiedown areas, as they can really interfere with airflow if they are not properly routed.

For me, a non-audiophile, the three (mic in, line in, line out) satisfies all of my needs considering the case has built-in extra mic and line out on the front I/O. USB is plentiful. I have 6+2 USB (also front I/O). I have never found a use for so many ports, save for some externals like a DVD drive, alternative controllers or the like. I have a feeling things might get a little tight after I throw an Occulus into the mix...

I was highly concerned about the lack of internal USB headers, since I have so many RGB-enabled and otherwise CAM-active devices. I was made to purchase the NZXT internal USB expander as a result...but it neatly fits underneath the top of the case, lodged above the internal red cosmetic piece (which I assume is supposed to be for reservior mounting. (the trick is to mount it upside down)

Point taken.

I am measuring out the PCB to see if the G12 can shave enough headroom off to make this work, else I will be trading out my 780 for a modern, smaller GPU. By the looks of things, there will be JUST enough room to get the X62 and fans in there with the addition of the G12...and make a pocket of air below the card and above...sort of bifurcating the chambers of open air within the case.

Will add pics of this mad science later.

Yeah, I would have entertained a micro ATX perhaps, but I have no need for the additional PCIe slots, nor the higher price tag that usually comes with it. I love small form-factors. for a variety of reasons...but really was just curious as to why they even wanted to come out with an X370 variant, unless it's really just to snake oil the cash from those who have more dollars than sense.

Do you have white papers that describe this? "Space for proper power delivery" seems a rather nebulous concept to me. Power delivery across the PCB? There are identical number of phases and MOSFETs on both the mITX B50-I GAMING and X370-I GAMING boards by ASUS...so I fail to see how "space for proper power delivery" can even be a relevant talking point, considering the essential identical nature of the two boards in question.

The point of the thread was that CPU compatibility for the board in the subject line is incorrect and needs to be updated.

Limited board space? I plan on having adequate AIO cooling, so I can't see how baord space would have anything to do with OC capability. Chipsets have nothing to do with overclocking, though manual voltage regulation is absent in the B350 BIOS, I've seen. Offset still exists...but I plan on using the XFR to autoclock it based on thermal headroom. I am just confused as to why PCPartPicker lists it as not compatible.

After looking at asking prices for my very card (the STRIX 980ti OC), I think I will do just that. Performance at OC easily tying 1070 for performance, albeit at greater wattage consumption...but I will be migrating my 5-year old EVGA Supernova 1000 P2, which has 5 years still left on its 10 years warranty. Since the rest of the build has marginal draw, even at OC with the 1700X excellently cooled, I cannot see this as an issue, as I will easily have about 400W (less with the age of the PSU, I am aware), but I still cannot see anything being an issue without a total failure of the PSU...and I stand by EVGA's PSUs like I would Corsair's. Excellent brand strength can be easily destroyed by a bad product, and I haven't heard anything of the sort from these two over my 7 years of being a professional system builder.

I am also selling (1) Micro ATX form-factor motherboard (socket LGA 2011) for Sandy Bridge-E and Ivy Bridge-E Processor families.

(2) 6-core (12-thread) i7 4930k Ivy Bridge-E HEDT CPU

(3) 9-10-9-28-2N 1866MHz 4x4GB DDR3 RAM kit

The point is to sell me entire new system to replace the system and ideally the GPU as a result of the accumulated funds. The 980ti would have been incremental at best but not so sure it justifies being sold.

It was a tedious process of actually installing it in the rear cavity.,,and snaking the plate/pump assembly through one of the provided cable management grommets (grommet kept falling out due to the torque required to weasel it through without damage).

All in all, the poor airflow in the case ultimately rendered this a moot point. I have every reason to believe if I had moved cable management OUT of the cable management area instead of carefully making it work with the AIO next to it, it would have generated better thermals...but then again, folding isn't exactly gonna keep your rig nice and chilly, either.

Always try something once, I say.

If this weren’t bad enough, this behaviour still occurs after Cortana is fully disabled/uninstalled. It’s speculated that the purpose of this function to build up a massive voice database, then tie those voices to identities, and eventually be able to identify anyone simply by picking up their voice, whether it be a microphone in a public place or a wiretap on a payphone.

Interestingly, if Cortana is enabled, the voice is first transcribed to text, then the transcription is sent to:

While the initial reflex may be to block all of the above servers via HOSTS, it turns out this won’t work: Microsoft has taken the care to hardcode certain IPs, meaning that there is no DNS lookup and no HOSTS consultation. However, if the above servers are blocked via HOSTS, Windows will pretend to be crippled by continuously throwing errors, while still maintaining data collection in the background. Other than an increase in errors, HOSTS blocking did not affect the volume, frequency, or rate of data being transmitted.

If anyone can also confirm the above, I won't touch W10 with a ten foot pole.

I won't be upgrading the the old chipset. I am not optimistic about SKylake-E, either. I mean the line between server and workstation chips is only a matter of branding now, anyhow. Low Xeon chips are analogous to low-end HEDT chips, the only differece being instruction sets and more cache. The 6950X is just insane. No reason for that chip to even be in a high-end gaming rig. You'll never use that much parallel processing. That's a budget workstation chip right there.

Ambient 30'C, idle temp makes sense. If your CPU isn't being utilized, the TIM should be enough to disperse the heat to your pump contact.

You applied the H100i V2 with the included thermal paste coat, or did you use aftermarket paste?

It sounds like your pump may not actually be working. Fans still might be.

Make sure the pump (and the integrated fan headers) are plugged into the correct places. The pump needs to be connected to the "CPU" motherboard header, not the fans. Put the fans into the indicated connector on the H100i V2, nowhere else.

Make sure you've also downloaded Corsair Link and run it. You will see a colossal difference in temps once you set up Link to run at startup.
