Would be perfect for my work computer, currently using geforce 6600 256mb.
Right now I have 4 sticks of these and I was able to hit 2200mhz 10-11-11-33 2T @ 1.475v. I tried 10-10-10-30 2T @ 1.53v and sometimes will result a crash during gaming. If I take out 2 sticks and only run 2x4gb, then I can run all the way upto 2800mhz @ 1.65v 12-12-12-36 2T. Best $95 ram ever.
Thanks for your advice. The other thing I would factor in is how much I can sell my current 7870 on ebay for now vs in January 2015? Do you think it's better for me to sell that card now, hold on until later like let say mid-January? I don't game much besides use my computer like maybe 30 minutes a day.
Right now the only games I'm playing is starcraft 2 and archeage. I tried max setting with archeage and my 2gb 7870 is struggling at it unless I turn down the shadow from ultra to high, so I thought maybe now it's the time to upgrade my GPU. I will be selling my old GPU on ebay if I'm going to get a new one to replace it. I don't mind waiting a little bit longer, but I do plan to get GTA 5 PC when it release so I'm not sure if now it's the time to upgrade or wait till...
I current have a sapphire radeon 7870 video card with a FSP aurum 400 watt 80+ gold power supply. Initially I was planning to wait till Nividia release gtx 960 and upgrade, but now they delay and push towards to Q1 2015. Should I wait till 20nm card come out next year or should I grab a gtx970 instead? Is 400 watt sufficient for it? Thanks
I just hope this is false, been wanting to upgrade my 7870 for a long time already.
It's possible if they make it at 192-bit 3gb, price could possibly be $229 or even $199. $249 for a 192 bit card is over priced since the gtx970 is at $329.
How can I protect the integrated VRM in case the liquid metal touch it? Some people say use nail polisher and still shorted. Thanks
After 2 months of usuage, my CPU temperature begin to climb to upper 70s during gaming. So I took my computer apart and clean off IHS, heatsink and the CPU die with rubbing alcohol. Then I promptly applied MX-2 between IHS/Die and Heatsink. For some strange reason, this time my prime95 load temperature dropped down to 80C???? Prime95 Small FFT Stock Paste (Was using 1.3v vcore 1.175v cache) 97-98-96-100 then shut down after 3 minutes of running. After delid with MX-2...
If it only requires 1x 6pin power connector, then I'm in for one.
