I sold my dk2 a while back but can't wait to get the new one. I'm waiting for the new line of nvidia cards first tho to replace my 2gb 770s.

No problem! biggrin.gif

Yeah, it is great! Only the text readability in the cockpit really deserves the upgrade to CV1 (or Vive?).

You know that Pascal is more directed at scientific computing (CUCA)? But ok, with HBM and VR SLI and all the other stuff it will be awesome anyway.

No I didnt know that. I just figured its not worth upgrading to a 900 series so late in the cycle. I am moving away from SLI in the next round anyway. Going to get a 980/980ti level of pascal instead of 2x 970 level.

Plus the large price tag on the consumer version annoyed me for the moment and the inclusion of the xbox one controller when I already have one also didnt help so I held off on the pre order.

I am going to wait to see reviews on Oculus Vs Vive although I will most likely go Oculus because the Vive seems to be more for interactive movement VR and my Study is not quite big enough for me to be wandering around in biggrin.gif

I need to build a new house and have my own Holodeck.

The VR SLI thing will be big, I think (one - or even more - GPU rendering just one eye). But of course, a single GPU is better for other games.

That shocked me too.

I saw a list of Vive release games included. None of these interests me in any way - except for ED of course (but I have that already). That was a pretty sad moment.

Oculus will include Eve Valkyrie, and personally I am lookind forward to Technolust!

At work I have a 100m² wireless walking VR lab (laptop-backpacks with DK2; Led-based motion capture). We do research on human motion and orientation.

Glad to hear it helped, I suspect you will also be able to have success with Fast Boot enabled and change HDD only to all SATA devices smile.gif

@Jpmboy and misoongiri

Thanks and +rep to you both. VCore now lowers to .832. Now all I need to do is try 4.6 or even 4.7. Now to the next problems. From cold boot pc shuts down then turns on again and continue to boot without any problems. Is this normal? Also the ASUS logo shows up twice. First during POST then another one appears before the windows logo. Fast Boot is enabled and Next Boot after AC Power Loss is set to fast boot. Both are not much of a concern but really slows down my boot time.

Again thanks.

I don't have this, or I didn't pay enough attention, but I remember some asus users asking double POST in their older gen boards. Will observe when I get home & turn it on.

I have this, the 2nd asus logo has the spinning dots before handing off to windows right?

Mine is at default normal boot for Next Boot after AC Power Loss, iirc.
Btw I remember setting Boot Delay to 0 sec, from default 3 secs. Do you have this? You will still have a few secs to hit key & enter bios.
post #3608 of 5771
Apparently the 2nd Asus (or any other OEM) logo screen, which replaces the usual Windows boot screen, can be disabled via Option ROM Messages bios setting. But I haven't tried.

I remember Raja talking about memory training in the context of multiple POSTs...

A double pump from cold boot is not unusual. some configurations will do this. In bios Disable boot screen logo (in the boot menu). you'll see a post report rather than the logo. Enable fast boot on this sane menu. When you get in the 4.6+ range (and 1.4V or higher) probably best to set an LLC in the 5 or 6 range. thumb.gif
