This is the bit that is worrying me.
Is it advisable to use EKWB backplates with these cards.
I will never buy one of these cards.
You should look at getting a bigger PSUWhen I started using 2160p with my 4 Titans and a 3930k all overclocked my 1500w EVGA PSU was not up to the job.
A bench scoreboard should be quick and easy to submit scores to, HWBot and some of the bench threads on these forums often asks for far too much information that is of no value what so ever.
I try and beat my PBs quite a lot but I don't feel the need to post them on HWBot as I think the site is well past it.I would rather keep my efforts to myself and do it for fun.A lot of people consider some of the tweaks used on HWBot as cheating and I don't want anything to do with that.
Best option at the moment is 4 x 8gb 290Xs @4K and above they are faster than the Titans or 980s and have more VRAM too.The downside is they are a bit of a pain to get running on X99.
Unless you are using waterblocks or better this is an absolute no with that type of cooler.
I don't rate HWBot as I think it is too out of date. They use ancient software that favours LN2 on the CPUs and often the GPUs are just a side show. I don't like all the tweaks they allow either as this almost defeats the point of a benchmark. I think they should use more benches that run at very high resolutions and settings for example Heaven 4 run maxed out @4K would be good. Lets face it if they can afford LN2 gear they can afford a 4K monitor. It would also be...
1.4v on air is very high.My CPU is not a very good one so if it dies I will just replace it and give the silicon lottery another go.Intel tend to release new Extreme Edition CPUs about every 12 months so I may grab a new one when they do.
