I've found some good NVMe drive prices on eBay. For the cost of the drive being slightly used, you can get a lot more bang for the buck. I picked up a 1tb Plextor M8PE for $330 (retail is over $400) OEM Samsung drives are also a great deal (only they have little or no warranty since they are supposed to be a dell or HP laptop with a warranty).
I'll be joining the M1 club soon as my case should be shipping today or tomorrow. I was going to use a Silverstone ML08 but I decided it would be too hard to squeeze a H75 into it.

I just delidded my new 7700k. This is my 2nd delid (my first was a 3770k several years ago already in this thread).I looks like I netted a 13-15C drop across the cores. I am using a Corsair H75 in the open air for these tests, but I'm building a small ITX rig. My goal was 5ghz under 80C in a small Ncase M1 or Silverstone ML08. Looks like I could push a few more Mhz if I wanted to.OCN name: ValkeriefireCPU: i7-7700kon die-TIM: CLUihs-TIM: CLUMhz gained: 0OC after...
Hey Tallis. Thanks for the advice on the CNPS8900. I'm going to cancel my eBay bid on it. Sounds like your 7700k might be soaking up a lot of volts. Mine runs 5.0ghz at 1.32v. Check out this post here I made in the OC thread. I'm going to try delidding it now.450w is enough. A GTX1080 is 170w, the CPU overclocked is only 130w, so that leaves 150w too spare.EDIT: I completed my delid. 13-15C drop in temps using CLU. Here is post.
Wow, these puppies OC so easily. I just built my 7700k with a Z170 Asrock Fatality ITX this morning. I'm running 5.0ghz @ 1.328v by running 0.05v (50mv) offset voltage. I tried +0.025v (25mv) but it failed. I'm using a Corsair H75 for cooling. I'm currently without a case, just desk benching my hardware until I can settle on a Silverstone ML08 or NCase M1.Temps are in the mid-high 80's under the x264 test. I now they'd be a bit higher if I had a case.Photos......
Great post Talis. Thank you. I'm planning to delid as well. What clocks and voltages are you running? I'm wondering if a CNPs8900 or AXP-100 can sustain any overclock. I think a key here is to try undervolting the CPU. My build will be...

I'm looking for a Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet for a ML08 Milo build. Please pm me with your shipped price to zip code 89138. Thank you
Best price I've ever seen on a unit of this wattage and quality. Same PSU as the Corsair AX860. It's also 6.3" deep which is rare for a 800+ watt unit, most are 7", which makes this good for small or ITX cases. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151111&cm_re=860XP2-_-17-151-111-_-Product $30 rebate and code EMCSRECB2
The Asus, Acer, Agon, and Viewsonic you listed all have the same panel, so in the end, your really buying the same monitor no matter which way you go. The only variables are price, aethetics, menus, and warranty support. I don't know where you're located, but if it is in big city, sometimes you can find good deals on Craigslist, and you can see the monitor in person before you buy it.
My bad, I meant 34". The Acer Predator X34, Asus 348Q. They retail around $1000 but you can find them cheaper if you wait long enough. Agon makes a 35" version.
