    New CPU/MOBO won't boot with GPU installed

    That's the problem, this is the third board today. I returned the first one for the same issue, the second one had bent pins that we discovered while still in the store and this is the third one. They tested it in the store and it worked so I'm totally lost as to where to go from here. I genuinely like this board and it's design but it's currently totally unusable.
  2. So I just purchased a i7 8700k and a EVGA z370 tfw and for some reason it refuses to boot with the GPU installed. My 1080 TI works with my z170 board no problem but now this refuses. It's not a power issue as I can remove the card, boot the system and install it and force it to use the GPU but it'll never get past the bios doing this and it's not exactly a convenient manner to use my PC. I tried changing the cables, triple checking the plugs, the board worked at the store so I'm not sure why it won't now. Any thoughts?

    Finally Decided to Care for Aesthetics This Build

    So slight update. I did a bios update, took out the cooler, reoriented it for better airflow, and mounted a rear exhaust fan which is right against the CPU cooler but none the less it there. All the fans aside from the GPU are Noctua's, damn that's a lot of money on fans. The CPU is now running at 4.7Ghz and there's a light OC on the RAM too.
  5. Squeezed every last drop of power I could out of this system but the thermal limits of GPU boost 3.0 have screwed me. I'd likely need to get a EVGA Hybrid kit to push this any further. GPU OC'd to 2050 on the core 5620 or so on the memory. CPU was OC'd to 4.7Ghz

    What aftermarket 1080 ti are you excited about

    Well I got the FE but I'm torn on if I should go for the EVGA hybrid cooler or not.
  7. I got the CPU up to 4.5Ghz, there's also the 5-10% IPC improvement between Haswell and Skylake to consider and that I overclocked my DDR4 to 2300mhz from it's stock 2133mhz. As for the GPU it would fluctuate from 2.1Ghz to 2.075Ghz, likely due to GPU boost 3.0's temperature limits.

    No problems here with an overclocked I7 6700k and GTX 1080 TI House Fire Edition. Though if you actually have too powerful of fans in the front the noise from the air being pulled in through the front panels will be pretty loud so watch out there.

    Well that 750GB hard drive is nearly 10 years old now and it's still rocking so I can't give it up now. And I mean if I'm gonna have a FE, I might aswell flood the case with green, also got the chromax green on the LTT edition NF-F12's and NF-A14's. I actually tried mounting it like that both times I've had to move it too a different motherboard but with no success. Quite possibly I'm too stupid for Noctua's mounting system.
  10. Most of these parts I already had, while the case, and GPU are the new parts along with the sleeved cables. Even with those few changes it looks like a completely new build Parts List: CPU: I7 6700k @4.5Ghz CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2 Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170 HD3P Memory: G.Skill NT Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory @2.3Ghz Storage: 1 Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 240GB | Seagate Barracuda 2TB | Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM | WD Blue 750GB 5200RPM SATA 2 Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 TI Founders Edition @2.1Ghz Case: NZXT S340 Elite Power Supply: Corsair CSM 750W 80+ Gold 750W

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Well I'm not too worried about performance. And I got the EVGA one so I could do the step up thing to a proper cooler if I really don't end up liking it.

    Part of me likes the look of the blower cooler and the other part likes instant gratification. Maybe I'll water cool someday.

    My 1440p 144hz screen got tired of running around 70FPS on medium settings with my GTX 970 so I got a GTX 1080 TI.
