Thanks to HWBOT I bought the C7H170 M and an i5 6500.
Just wanted certain features and server quality build for 24/7 use.
Great little build, incredibly stable considering the high I/Os I need for real time 96k sampling apps.
Decided to try the C7Z97 OCE and only want 4.4ghz, don't even know what I am doing, but after reading a few different reviews had no problems getting exactly what I wanted, using Windows 7 though.
My apps are old but make me moneyu and drivers started requiring the Driver Enforcement trick in 8.1, Windows 10, lost a few apps.
Back to Windows 7.
FWIW I still have a PC 4U Rackmount of the P4SCT+II and a Northwood CPU that uses Gigastudio from the 90s.
Works like a champ.
And dhenzjhen, love your mad skills on the H170.
Never figured to see you everywhere I go and learn things.
