  1. So I have a custom loop in my system that consists of an EK Velocity CPU block, an EK GPU block, 2 x 240mm radiators, and an EK X-RES 140 pump/res combo. This is all in a Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow case. When I put the loop together, I bled it for 24 hours and the air was gone. For some reason though, as more time goes by, air seems to keep getting into my radiators. When I start up the system and the pump spins up, a large amount of air bubbles get pushed into the reservoir from the front rad and float to the top. There are no leaks from any of the fittings, and I have the anti-vortex EK insert in the reservoir. Can anyone help me figure out why air keeps getting pushed into my radiators? Thank you
  2. I have just encountered a strange issue with SOTR. If I try to use MSI Afterburner with RivaTuner Statistics Server, the game will only run at 5 fps, making it impossible to even navigate the main menu. When I run the game with EVGA Precision X1 (same overclock), the game runs just fine. Does anyone know why this is?
  3. EVGA 1080 Ti FTW 3, and its being liquid cooled. Updated to latest NVidia drivers from their website
  4. I have been having this problem since I updated my PC to a Ryzen 7 3700X. Randomly when I boot up my PC and try to play a game, I cannot get more than 5 fps in any game I try. Things at the desktop are working just fine, and I am seeing my monitors 165Hz refresh rate. YouTube will work just fine with GPU decoding, and so will every other webpage. I have tried updating my drivers after using DDU and reseating my GPU and RAM. Temps are not an issue, as HWMonitor shows them at around 40C on both CPU and GPU when I start the game. The weirdest thing is that it is happening completely randomly. Just earlier today I was gaming just fine, but I rebooted,, and then 5 fps in everything (literally every game shows EXACTLY 5 fps). Does anyone have a solution?
  5. I am unable to update to BIOS version 0702 using flashback or EZ Update 3. I am using a USB 2.0 drive formatted to FAT32, and I use the BIOS renamer tool as instructed. When I insert the drive into the BIOS port, and hold the flashback button, it blinks a few times then stays on. When I try using EZ update 3, it tells me the C8H.CAP file is not a proper BIOS. I even tried using the file before renaming it. I have nothing on my drive except the file when trying the flashback. I called Asus, and they said I would need to have a replacement board sent to me, but I would like to avoid that if at all possible. Has anyone had any luck trying something different? AI Suite tells me my current version 0506 is the latest, which it is not.
  6. I noticed that when I am downloading a new game on Steam, my CPU usage will be between 50-80% usage. For reference, I have an i7-5820k @ 4.4Ghz, and an internet speed of 400 Mbps (megabits, not bytes). Why does a simple task such as downloading/installing a game push my CPU so hard?
  7. Thanks so much for that link. Even with the IC diamond, its cheaper than Newegg. Do you know anything about how loud it is?
  8. So I found the Prostar Clevo N850HP6 on Newegg and it seemed like an amazing deal, coming in at $1199 with a GTX 1060 6GB and a 120GB M.2 SSD boot drive with 1TB HDD. The only problem is that I can't find any reviews online whatsoever. Has anyone heard anything good about it, or has anyone here decided to be the brave soul and purchase it? Thanks
  9. I am in the same position you're in. I currently have the 1080, and it runs most games at 4k 60fps no problem. You won't be able to max out the demanding AAA titles though, and I highly recommend not using AA in most titles. With AA off, most games can be nearly maxed out, and still maintain 60 fps. I can currently run BF1 at these setting types at 60 fps. My settings for that game are below, should you choose to copy them.
  10. Ok, bro. Continue on with your delusions.
  11. No, it's not a bottleneck. It's a current-gen quad core with hyperthreading, it can definitely keep up. And yes, there are CPU's that can keep up, otherwise no one would buy more than one, yet people do. It has everything to do with PCI-e lanes, because that's how a GPU communicates with the CPU. They are like railroads to a train station. If there isn't enough track, only limited amounts of info can reach its destination.
  12. Not necessarily. It has 16 PCI-e lanes, and going from x16 to x8 on a gen 3 slot won't really cause an issue.
  13. I ran a dual 1080 build for a while, and GTA ran fine on it for me
