  1. Don't do that. That can damage your Motherboard. Just use the 4-pin (Probaly also labeled with "CPU").
  2. Why buy into Z270, which is a dead plattform? Get Ryzen or Coffeelake.
  3. FTL

    installing 2 windows

    When you can get onto your desktop, then you can remove it. You can also remove it earlier, but this is just to be safe.
  4. What you care holding is the heatsink. It being cold is actually a bad sign, since it means your heatsink isn't removing the heat from your CPU.
  5. There shouldn't be any problems. Just don't do intensive tasks and you should be okay. I would also see if you can disable some cores in the BIOS to reduce the risk of your system crashing.
  6. i5 7600K is probaly the worst CPU you could have got. Both the i5 8400 and the R5 1600 (which is also cheaper) are much better chioces. Both CPUs beat it in nearly every workload. Gaming and especially productivity. Do your research next time.
  7. Get him to start GPU-Z, check what GPU he really has.
  8. Any monitor that fits your budget and needs will do. Just watch out for the freesync range. prefered is 35-144Hz, but some monitors have a range smaller than that.
  9. He's lying or got something wrong. Check it out with your own eyes.
  10. 4K Gaming and Game Development aren't quite possible at your budget. VR is the only thing you can achieve.
  11. @YeshYyyK Just have to check the manufactorers site for more information. Most of them have the freesync range in their Specifications section.
  12. The profit with 1 GPU is very low and not worth it really. Some mining farms have hundrets of GPUs.
  13. i see, but for benchmarkers, i would get multiple cpus, since each does best in their own categories. 8700K fo single core and either the 1950X or 7960X for multi. They trade blows depending on the programm.
  14. You are just using it for benchmarks? The best Overclocker is the i7 8700K. Or is there a real need for those CPUs because you are wasting all your money on stuff you can't take advantage of. Trust me, you will regret it.
  15. Game doesn't work well on 4 Thread CPUs, getting an Ryzen 5 or i5 Coffeelake would be the smart decision.
