Synthetic basically means that the program has no real use other than benchmarking or stress testing. As Haswell was designed to revceive AVX instructions, there are programs that use them and therefore benchmarks that will use them. Now the 0.1V boost isn't an issue for stock CPUs so using such benchies is the proverbial "no bigga deal". Right now mostly found in highly specialized research / heavy computing / big time math apps, it's use is expanding..... Handbrake, OpenCL, Visual Studio and even gaming is reportedly on the way.

So yes while AVX is included in synthetic benchies, it is also used in real world applications.

not that any of those are a bad case what so ever. You are all over the place on size, You just wanting a really good case? Big or small? Obviously the 900D is where it's at for a big case. If you want to go mid size build or something, I really recommend a hard look at the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 or the Mini / 350D for a Micro-ATX size board, I want one real bad and a Asus Maximus VI Gene

Plasti-dip on board done

if I want to keep the shield intact to sell it later, its the only option available

and a BIG FAIL to Asus, when I remove the armor for painting, the water block (crosschill) was simply unscrew, loose, the block are 1/8 away from mosfet
for someone who buy it and put it on a rig, need to check VRM/mossfet temp

How do you remove the plasti-dip?
post #180 of 945
simply peel-off

its a rubber coat, no sanding or any preparation need for using plasti-dip, just clean it before and apply plasti-dip
