Go into BIOS and turn off UEFI Secure boot and enable Legacy mode under the boot options? I couldn't get a new Dell to boot off a USB until I did that.
Yeah if I sold my 970 a month ago I probably could have gotten $250 for it, but now $200 is more likely. Or less. If I was smart I'd just keep it until I get that 4K monitor that I've been pining for.... but nobody has accused me of being smart when it comes to computer purchases. The only way I would consider a 980ti is if it was $300 or less. For used... much less. The 1070's will get down to 350 before too long, if I can just not be stupid and pay $400-430 for...
I cannot believe this thread is 185 pages and counting..... I also can't believe I read most of it, but hey I was bored at work.
Here's to hoping Zen is awesome. Even though I finally broke down and upgraded the old Phenom II to a Skylake i5, my first Intel chip since.... Prescott P4? So like 2003 or 4? (laptops don't count). AMD fanboy at heart and I hope they can at least be quasi-comptetive. Intel needs the competition.
Must not buy a new video card. GTX 970 is good enough. Must not buy a new video card. GTX 970 is good enough. Must not buy a new video card. GTX 970 is good enough. Must not buy a new video card. GTX 970 is good enough. If I keep saying it enough maybe it will stick.
I just got this board with a skylake i5-6600k. Having RAM issues. Have kit of Corsair 16gb DDR4 2x8gb Vengeance LPX 2666mhz. I can only get the thing to post in single channel mode, either using 1 dimm only or both in bank A. Updated the bios to the latest 2.80, it refuses to POST in dual channel mode. I submitted a ticket with Corsair but I fully expect they will say "it's your motherboard" and I'm sure Asrock will say "it's your RAM". At least I got it to work in...
Of course. I forgot what site I was on.
Why go water if you're not going to OC? Hyper 212 Evo works great and saves cash and is whisper quiet (if you want it to be, you can turn it up if you want). Also don't hate on the GTX 970, I do 60 fps all day long at 1440p (maybe not maxed, but still). 980ti is still to expensive for 20% gain I think. Or get a 980ti but plan on selling it in 2 years and getting a 1080ti+ (I made that up, whatever they will be called in 2 years)
A 5 year plan with the same GPU the whole time? Ehhhh. Pick the i7 skylake and a GTX 970 and buy a new GPU in 2ish years. The CPU will last, the GPU won't. Well, depending on how demanding the games are anyway.
