1440p 144hz G-Sync is the bees knees man! I have the PG279Q on BOTH of my workstations here and I cant imagine gaming without it. Granted it took a couple of returns to get good ones, but once you get a clean one, there really is no looking back!

I'd Amazon one if I do, they have the best return policy of any company here in Canada, and pay return shipping, I could buy and try until I got zero dead pixels. smile.gif

And more complex RTS games can benefit a lot (e.g. Ashes of Singularity, Total War, ...), 10%-30% for x2 speed.

When testing Total War Attila, I found that RAM speed could actually bottleneck a 980Ti on high settings (extreme setting was more GPU limited) @ 1080p. The difference there was up to 40% for x2 RAM speed.

Here is one RAM speed review: http://www.techspot.com/article/1171-ddr4-4000-mhz-performance/page3.html

Thanks I'll have a look. I usually just game RPG and FPS.

That is exactly what I did haha! I basically purchase EVERYTHING from Amazon these days, there returns and prime can't be beat. The only real issue I ever had with them was the back light bleed, never did see any dead pixels that I can recall at this time.

I feel for you up in Canada man, I have a good buddy that lives there and his prices are absurdly higher then mine in the states. We have joked about me buying stuff for him and sending it up, but I dunno how VAT or whatever you have there works if I were to send him anything.

I send $400 USD every month to the USA for support payments. Costs me just over $575 Canadian dollars to buy the $400 USD. frown.gif

Only had my block 3 weeks, and this is what it looks like. Flushed the system out when I got the new gpu. Am using EK coolant. what the heck.

Thats a nickel block too. so copper isnt supposed to be showing.

I think mine is looking the same in less than a week. I just checked it after seeing yours. Guess I'll be tearing my loop down later tonight. I'm really hoping it's just some residue or something in mine as it doesn't look as bad as yours.

You know though, @SlimJ87D, you come across and an elitist that everyone HAS to agree with you and you act like you're always right which at times your not. At least when you HAVE been right and I've been wrong, I owned up to it. But, you're ALWAYs right and have ALL the answers, it's really frustrating for me you act like this.

Anyhow, it's not a forum to voice issues really but I'd wish you not respond in absolutes and realise that you are not the end all to beat all when it comes to the forums. I'm sure you are an intelligent guy, no doubt, it just seems that the 'I am right and you are wrong' kinda attitude and statements is not conducive to a learning and growing community that is here to help each other, not to cause division and strife. redface.gif

Anyhow, my rant is done.

And yes, this person is having an issue with the Palit BIOS but I've not had this issue, no power limiting until 117%.

I'm thinking even though my card is a reference FE somehow because it's a first model Gigabyte edition I got on release day there might somehow be some kind of differences where some get varying results then I do while some have similar results and I've seen both sides of that coin in the forums and elsewhere.

Palit BIOS does have it uses for those it's working for though. smile.gif

I been reading through this thread and agree with your sentiment toward that poster.

I feel like because he won the silicone lottery with that card, his posts come off as if he's some GTX 1080 Ti Messiah.

Thinking about changing it out, but maybe it is better to wait for the next bigger jump in CPU architecture? Haha like i can hold out until 2019 and Icelake.

The higher speeds are offset by the looser timings to an extent, although now with DDR4 pushing 4000Mhz, that's a lot of extra bandwidth. Stuff like 3DMark physics test respond really well to the faster memory, but "real world differences" aren't great (again, until you get into the really fast stuff, which is $$$).

The 2011-3 platform gets a nice bump with quad channel, but the memory controllers are fussy and it takes a lot of work to push past 3200Mhz with respectable timings.

This gives you an idea of how gaming performance scales with memory bandwith:

http://www.techspot.com/article/1171-ddr4-4000-mhz-performance/page3.html

My 2c - plenty of good reasons to upgrade to a newer platform, but DDR4 is only a part of it...

Also, chalk me up as a +1 for the Palit BIOS. Better clockspeeds under heavy load, higher benchmark scores and gaming seems more stable (hah! remember gaming?). I was having all sorts of problems in VR games, which are pretty demanding, with the FE BIOS > 2037Mhz. Palit BIOS has been happy gaming endlessly at 2075Mhz.

I contacted ek to see what they think. I hope i can get a new block. That really sucks to say the least.

Thanks for answering. Yeah i have CL10 so not the lowest, but i feel the platform with the CPU i have still holds far too much value to change out for something like Kaby. Maybe if i bought a completely new system minus a new GPU ( i have a 980 i can put in this system), so i had 2 functional systems, i could maybe see myself doing it.
