  1. welcome to the Linus Tech Tips forums! at this time, no.
  2. what happens if your OC is removed and the RAM is OC'd to 2933MHz?
  3. Help with Sata ports

    all are connected to the Z270 chipset. as explained in the manual, if using multiple SATA ports in combination of M.2 drives, certain ports become unavailable if using M.2 drives: http://asrock.pc.cdn.bitgravity.com/Manual/Z270 Killer SLIac.pdf
  4. Define R5 radiator placement

    welcome to the Linus Tech Tips forums! the rad on the floor will need a taller footing as the spacing underside is limited and will starve the airflow into the rad/case. it is enough for a low speed PSU fan (if using that option). the 240 in the front intake has a bit better airflow than the floor option. depending on hardware used, a single 280x60mm (1400rpm fans) in the intake for a CPU/GPU loop can suffice (won't fit in the roof as the mobo/RAM heatsinks are too tall). IMHO, the define r-series is more for air/AIO cooling than custom loop with no complications.
  5. NZXT H440 case

    it has worst air flow than the h440. the front is so impaired, it'll draw internal air back to the front fans and recirculate the warm air and turn it into warmer air. there are better alternatives than the h630.
  6. Good Air Cooler For 8700k

    if you are going to be conservative on over-voltage, the air systems from noctua (nh-d15/s, nh-u14s). if you feel you need to be heavy on voltage usage, then might consider other means.
  7. you can update the UEFI directly to 3504. incremental is not necessary. once updated and OS installed, use the MEUpdate Tool to close the MEI error.
  8. Csgo noob

    please reserve this kind of content for a status update.
  9. register your purchase and then open a support ticket with asus on this issue. https://icr-am.asus.com/webchat/icr.html?rootTreeId=AM.US.EN-US&treeId=AM.US.EN-US.MotherBoard&tenantId=EN-US&_ga=2.172600228.620118979.1512310059-1115806297.1494108294
  10. HELP! Mobo Switch issues

    possibly, your mobo needs an UEFI update to accept the devils canyon platform over the haswell platform. if you do not have the older haswell CPU, you can use BIOSFLASHBACK feature to update to newer UEFI. https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VI_IMPACT/HelpDesk_Download/ version 1505

  12. GTX 970 Tri SLI not available

    nope, use PCIe x16 slots 1, 2, 4 for x8/x8/x8 using PCIe slots 1, 3, 5 for x16/x16/x8: if using another CPU lane device wrecks the x16 slot 5 input. move the GPUs to 1, 2, 4 and you'll have the tri/SLI. or For a higher performance of the 3-way configuration using a 40-lane CPU, adjust the bandwidth of the PCIe x16_5 slot to x8 mode in the BIOS. Refer to Chapter 3 for more information.
  13. lets keep the Off-Topic chatter out of this thread, please.
  14. Overclocking subforum?

    we have two forums: CPU/Motherboard/Memory overclocking help and submissions: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/62476-post-your-cinebench-r15r1152003-scores-over-1000-submissions/ https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/17646-ltt-forums-cpu-overclocking-database/ any thread posted there can be commented to help in overclocking for CPU or Memory Graphics Card overclocking and submissions: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/212222-ltt-3dmark-thread/ https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/16152-the-gpu-overclocking-database/ any thread posted there can be commented to help in overclocking for Graphics Cards stand alone subforum will cause difficulty on thread creation to overclocking thermals/troubleshooting having them placed in wrong forum. so it'll keep it limited to one single forum to post to makes it just simple. make sure you have notifications enabled and follow your threads to receive updates to your query. hope this didn't muddy the waters too much.
  15. sorry, but we do not allow sales in the open forums. we have a classified sales section. to participate, review this guideline thread: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/538069-posting-guidelines-read-before-posting/ <-LOCKED->
