With your Z170 Gene, I'd pick the highest speed and lowest cas you can afford. Sweet spot I'd say the 3600Mhz C16 kit as it's reasonably priced for the performance.

Love this thing, grabbed the software and drivers for Win10 and it's completely functional with one exception, the new Apple Force Touch variable actuation does not yet work with Windows 10.

Every other gesture and maneuver works fine, opening closing, drag and drop, magnify and zoom, highlight drop down love the horizontal scrolling most of all in Microsoft Excel, so much easier than a separate mouse button you have to reach for and spin with your thumb, with the trackpad 2 if you want to horizontal scroll, just move left or right, so easy. Almost got the new Apple Mouse 2, then thought it's way too similar to my current devices three mice already, so went with something completely different and really happy I did.

Also not completely certain at this time if it can be used with Win 10 and bluetooth wireless, but to me its a stationary device so why would it matter?

Only using this device for work, (so don't hate on me too much) and I'll have the Free ROG Gladius mouse connected up side by side.wink.gif

Another real plus, the color is a bright Bitspower deluxe white. smile.gif


Here's the software and drivers for Win10.

This new NVMe oem ssd from Samsung looks interesting, the SM961. Maybe I should wait on the Intel 750 drive? headscratch.gif

Most likely will be a retail part soon with a black pcb, the Samsung 960 Pro.

Here’s the review:

I picked up my 512GB 950 Pro just before Computex on a huge sale. I'm not sure if they were expecting its replacement to be announced or whatnot, but 40% off I think it was.

No regrets.

What is this garbage?!?!

June 28, 2016





Good thing I didn't remove the shrink wrap on my MSI 1080 Gaming Xs. They'll be returned tomorrow and Founders Edition it is!!

I don't know who they think would put a half-block onto a $1000 card but it sure won't be me.

EK dropped the Founder's Edition blocks before the 1080 Gaming?

Reference before non-reference?

OH ok, I get it full blocks are much more aesthetic, than half blocks, have to agree with you there bro. thumb.gif

My thoughts on EK's 10x0 block release(s) so far:
  1. The reference blocks were released first. Fine, no problem, that's normal.
  2. The non-reference blocks have been released much later.
  3. The non-reference backplates aren't available yet, and won't be for weeks according to EK. You can either roll the dice that stock will be available in two weeks (at best) or you can pay for shipping from Slovenia twice. Win/win, amirite?
  4. The Strix and now the MSI cards have a nickel plate covering half the fluid. I don't like the aesthetic of this, but I understand it could be a preference for some. Did I mention these blocks with this plate cost $15-25 more than the FE block?
  5. They partnered with MSI on the MSI 1080 Sea Hawk EK X which has a full block, so they clearly have the design completed for it. That said, good luck getting your hands on one, let alone two.
