How can you have been here for 10 years and still spout off some dumba$$ :poop: like that?
It is painful for my eyes ..... some one registered in this forums .... instead using best System memory for high performance ... to expect 20 cents resistor to do miracles.
No matter how many decades I will wait, some people will never learn neither the basics.

But if I mod the card and one of the VRAM chips takes a dirt nap, there is no reason why I shouldent be able to warranty the card as my mod had nothing to do with the fault.
BEWARE of something simple .... The rules are set by the manufacturer

Sorry to hear about your motherboard and 8700k. Were you doing the AVX stress testing with Prime95? I hope not since that's what I use to test my 9700k!
Actually yes, it was during a P95 session. I was first doing a few runs of Ycruncher to test initial stability with AVX, then moved to try a few runs of P95 and at one point the whole PC shut down and wouldn't power on. On close inspection, the CPU had a little "belly" under one of the resistors in the middle, as if it literally blew up inside. There was no sign of damage on the mobo. I still have it in storage. No idea if it still works or not since I didn't want to test it with the new 9900k at the time.
I would advise against P95 AVX stress testing as it pushes the CPU well beyond what it will EVER draw, under ANY circumstance. I now test with Cinebench R23 in a loop and Realbench, both AVX, both pushing the CPU further than any other workload, but not to absurd loads such as Ycruncher and P95 AVX.
