    Reduce Coil whine

    Stupid statement. "EVGA is the worst brand out there!!". In what, exactly, and why? You can't just make such a statement and give no arguments.

    Threadripper 1950X on Sale - Walmart $570

    Don't think that's a great deal for that price. Do you really need a Threadripper, though? The new AMD CPUs will feature more cores and will run on less expensive motherboards.

    1070 ti Underperforming

    Fair point, should have accounted for that.

    1070 ti Underperforming

    I'm very surprised. I had a 1070 before, which isn't THAT much slower than a 1070Ti, and playing PUBG at 1080p max settings was a no-no.
  5. Thanks for this. Even though OP could be running the SSD on the sop M.2 slot with Windows installed on it, it is still underperforming. I have a slower (yet, still fast) 970 Evo 500GB and I'm getting higher speeds than the advertised.

    1070 ti Underperforming

    I'm surprised you have that many FPS on PUBG. Although, 144 on CS:GO is quite low, not to mention that 144 consistent generally only happens when the FPS are capped on a 144Hz monitor. Perhaps this is the case?
  7. Could this have to be with the limitations in PCI-e lanes?

    CPU Socket Replacement

    Please do, I'd love to hear how it went. Remember to watch as many tutorials as possible. You can never know too much.

    Hardline bending kit

    Wouldn't buying your own kit be more sensible than paying for shipping and insurance posting, as well as for the hire of someone's kit? Remember that shipping of heavy or large packages can get quite expensive and that if you hire someone's kit, you can only use it for a period of time. I don't actually know the prices of a new kit, but it's probably not worth it. Don't forget that you'd have to ship the kit back to the owner, which is added cost.

    CPU Socket Replacement

    If you get the boards for free and are willing to screw up (it will most probably happen, at least the first time), then, I think it's a great idea to try and attempt to solder a new socket in. I advise you to try and choose the cheapest possible sockets, within reason, obviously. If you're getting them on eBay for £20, chances are the seller is sourcing them for much cheaper, so, find your own cheap source. If you don't mind "investing" on the sockets and losing some money, I don't see why you wouldn't attempt this kind of repair. I wish I had the time to do it. If you do this enough, chances are, you'll succeed and it'll get easier and easier. Someone who makes no mistakes is someone who never tries something new, so, by all means, go for it. I think it's silly when people tell you you shouldn't do it just because you don't know how to do it. Doing it is the way to learn it.

    Is a GTX1060 6gb still a valid card??

    Cheaper than a used 1070? That is simply not true. Check used 1070 prices on eBay.

    GTX 1080 Clocks and overclock

    Yes, I did. No matter what I do, I can't set a custom fan speed.

    GTX 1080 Clocks and overclock

    For some reason, I can't seem to be able to change the fan speed. When I do so, the changes don't take place and the slider goes back to whatever speed the fan is running on Afterburner. I had the same issue with the previous BIOS.

    GTX 1080 Clocks and overclock

    I can actually hit 6000MHz on the memory with stability, however, I can't really add much core clock at all.
  15. bruny06

    GTX 1080 Clocks and overclock

    Well, true, it is overclocked out of the box. It's just that barely being able to hit 2000MHz really isn't that great, so I was trying to find out whether or not I got really unlucky.
