The good news is your 7700k is the best gaming processor there is today so I wouldn't worry about that bench.

Yeah I mis-read the screenshot. I used to have a 6850K and a 5930K prior, I know how that gig goes wink.gif I actually sold it to a buddy who is doing a ton of Solidworks flow-sim etc as I mostly game on this machine at home now (my old setup was a R5E with the EK mono block and was AWESOME for video editing, but 64GB of RAM was utterly silly / pointless for gaming LOL).

Then bam you have the original backplate.
There is a video on it if you look it up smile.gif
And here is a picture showing the hex screws fit into ekwbs standoff

I`ll give it a try once my ek waterblock gets delivered. It would be awesome for the original backplate to fit with my waterblock, can hardly wait to see:). Thanks!

I run 128GB on my gaming rig but 100gb of that is a RAM disk I have my regular games on..

Anybody getting low GPU usage in GTA 5? Just did a clean install of it and it drops all the way to 46% sometimes for no reason.

I need to do the shunt mod to my ASUS FE card. I can do 2100-2139 on the stock blower, but I then get some power limitation fault triggered and I can only use upto half of my total 120% TDP. Anyone have any other alternative ways of doing the shunt mod without having to use the liquid metal approach? my motherboard stis on a desk so gravity isn't my friend in this case.

well of course not , Im not a 4k noob. Beren playing in 4k for 3 years. would never try to run that much AA. that is just pissin away performance for ZERO benefits, hell it actually looks worse imo. I use Super Sampling if I need AA. Otherwise I run with MFAA on (which doubles whatever in game AA \you use) and 2x AA (so, 4x AA effectively but better) and FXAA/TAA post process. Honestly, I have it on just to say I did b/c without AA in 4k is fine.

not quite but almost the best. Broadwell is still better if just for gaming.

Do some deeper digging, I personally am very skeptical of gains in the 10FPS region on CPU alone but hey, skepticism is what improves the robustness of the evidence to prove something.
I mean, even when I see OC results from people around OCN. I take it with a grain of salt and assume everything is 5% lower simply because it is in human nature to exaggerate.

Enquire further and do directed questions at as many people as possible, preferably ones with no vested interest in defending their purchase decisions.

For the record, I'm not saying the 5775c dude is wrong, but I'm saying to broaden your scope before you go out to spend money.

As a followup: I found some reasonably reliable data.

http://techreport.com/review/28751/intel-core-i7-6700k-skylake-processor-reviewed

From what I can tell trawling through the Crystallwell owners thread, the 5775c derives its performance from the low latency of the Crystalwell coupled with HEDT class Bandwidth.
In your usage scenario, the 5775c may achieve an increase in FPS to reach 120 FPS. But you may also get similar results from faster RAM, this is a really tough call to make.
you're going to want the faster ram too. I hope some others actually investigate before just dismissing my claim b/c they were nubbies and hadnt heard of an L4 cache or the magic it provides in games. Honestly I like being one of the only people on Earth to have this gem of a gaming cpu paired with the best gpu on the planet. you guys just do you. Nothing to see here. tongue.gif

of course not, but it's definitely worth $80 ($350 minus the ~$270 for selling the lesser 4790k). You guys just dont know about that cache. I have been going through this online everytime i mention it. People are just uninformed but they THINK they know everything. DO A LITTLE FREAKING RESEARCH.

So is it still general consensus for the 1080Ti that the custom boards can overclock better than the FE's when fitted with a waterblock? I say this because this was mostly the case with the 1080 because the 1080 FE's were power-limited and we don't have a Pascal BIOS Editor. Is it still worth it to go with a custom 1080Ti board when you know you'll just take the cooler off and slap in your own waterblock?

How long after a custom board release does EK generally make custom WB's for them, say the EVGA FTW3 1080Ti?
