Vega is 4K chip, Pascal is notDo you even own 4K gaming monitor (4K 75Hz+)?This is baby Vega, wait for big Vega aka Vega RX2 Infinity FabricFreesync 2Nvidia who?...And thus 1st OCN meme was born...
I have weird problem trying to overclock 7700K on Asus Prime Z-270 A motherboard (latest BIOS): I'm using adaptive mode for core/cache voltage, but no matter what I put in "Additional turbo mode CPU core voltage", e.g. 1.27, 1.25, 1.22, in HWInfo VCore is always shown as 1.232v under prime95 load. OC tuner set to Manual, BCLK is 100, multiplier is 45 for all cores, everything else is on auto. Voltage section in BIOS looks like this: Mode: Adaptive Offset sign:...

Again, thanks all for your advises. I ended up ordering the following, mainly due to RAM being on sale with coupon that was ending today: Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor ASUS PRIME Z270-A LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Motherboards - Intel G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel Z170 Platform / Intel X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model...
Yeah, I'm not sure how I missed R5 being newer and cheaper. Are there any significant differences between the two besides R5 being newer model? I really like that Fractal design advertises their cases as silent, that's kinda important to me. How's Phanteks cases in that regard?The price difference between Supernova G3 gold + 550W and 650W is like $10, I'd rather get 650W then. I'll look into these cases you mentioned, thanks.Really appreciate all advises. Any thoughts on...
Thanks for suggestions. Yes, I don't plan to SLI ever again. Would 650W power supply be enough? As for the case, I want to steer from full towers, just too big for my taste. Want to stick with quiet mid tower. I'm gonna read up on Phanteks mid towers, they look ok I guess.
I'm planning to upgrade my aging PC (2500K + DDR3 + AsRock Extereme 3 Gen 3) to something modern. I'm keeping video card (1080 Ti) and all drives (1 optical, 4 SSDs and 2 HDDs). Everything else must be upgraded. It's been a while since last major overhaul, so I'll need some sanity check here. My goals are as following: - quiet PC, good quality case with decent airflow that is easy to work with and aesthetically pleasing. I don't need a window or any flashing LEDs. - kaby...
