The switch razer is advertising looks very similar to a normal scissor switch. I'd like to see the actual internal mechanism if there is anything interesting inside.
I passed it up for $250 or so once when it was on sale. But after looking around at other motherboards even after the new releases I didn't find anything else that interested me more. I'm still considering waiting to see how Zen turns out too but this what I'm currently thinking of doing. There's a few 5930k on craigslist for $375 and I was hoping I might be able to get the SOC champ used or something for a good price and make a cheap successor to my 2500k. I figured I'm...
Toward the end of the year I will be looking to purchase a new motherboard for a 5930k possibly. I was looking at the gigabyte X99 SOC champion for cosmetics but I want to see if anyone has any recommendations that are better. The main feature I want is overclocking capability and ability to run pci 3.0 x16 on two slots. I will probably spend $250-350.
It runs hot in any slot. I had considered it but I only bought it at the end of the last year to hold me over until the 490X. A single 290X just doesn't cut 1440p 144hz. I'm just going to give my 290s to my little brother who will run them stock anyways so I'm not going to bother. It doesn't pass 90c either way it's just dissapointing that it runs warm and doesn't OC at all compared to my other
One of my 290x is fine at +86mv 1150/1475 in the low 70s the other can only OC core to 1100/1450 and runs in the low 80s even on stock clocks. It's depressing. Edit: These are both Sapphire TriX. The first one worked so well it made me get a second which was the more dissapointing one.
=S That silly stuff better be able to be disabled.
It's about the design. AMD could easily just beat intel or NVIDIAs offerings on either front out of the blue. It's just not likely.
I was just wondering where the hell this is going after refreshing.
What happened to the rumors of a WW1 setting? or was that something else? I don't remember. I was all excited for nothing..
Yep I was getting solid 60fps at 1440p with my slightly OC 290x.
