    Magic FPS Drop

    Just had a thought. Plug the fans back in and just let them hang there and see what happens. Maybe it thinks the fans are missing so its derated the card/s. Make sure the fans can spin. Good luck.

    Motherboard for my cpu

    Any of the boards in this filtered link should work. https://m.newegg.com/ProductList?canPowerSearch=True&powerSearchParams=%7B%22CategoryId%22%3A20%2C%22StoreId%22%3A1%2C%22SubcategoryId%22%3A280%7D&isFirstin=false&description=FHLEsA70dKzKoDqR2lBeblLSvjuwGkdtB%252fdjJTC%252f8VU%253d&storeid=1&categoryid=-1&nodeid=7627&storetype=2&subcategoryid=280&brandid=-1&nvalue=100007627&showseealldeals=False&itemcount=0&issubcategory=true&level=3&CPU+Socket+Type%7C%7CLGA+1151=%7C%7C600567584%7C%7CPower

    Magic FPS Drop

    • Double check that the card/s is/are seated in the slots all the way. • Make sure vsync is off in game. • Make sure all the power cords are fully pluged into your video card. • Be sure to use all the power input ports on your video card. • Make sure all the power cords are fullyfully connected to your monthdoard. • Be sure to check that the video cable is compleatly pluged in to your GFX card. I hope one of these fixes your problem.

    EVGA 1080 Hybrid coolant splice

    I have two EVGA 1080 Hybrids. Can they be spliced into a cooling loop with my CPU etc? I would rather not buy new cooling blocks and instead just splice into the hybrid ones. Yes getting new water blocks would be great but I'm trying to keep the price down. Is there a fitting that will allow me to cut my Hybrid pipes and connect them to a regular cooling loop? Why didn't I buy regular ones and put water blocks on them you might ask? Because I got them for $400 under the current price. The previous owner of them was dying for the 1080 ti and he only had the cards for a month before the announcement of the ti.

    Best ~240gb ssd

    I trust Samsung SSD's. If you want to save go with the 250GB Samsung SSD. Check them out here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820147374 I have been running Samsungs 500GB SSD drives in RAID in my systems as the C drives for years. I have only had 1 out of 6 drives fail after about 2 years of non stop use. After filling out my warranty info and sending the drive in I got a refurbished one the day after they received mine and it was the newest model at the time. I have had ZERO drive failures sense and I never turn my systems off. My computers being left on are what is killing the planet.

    How fast is the LTT member's internet connection?

    This is the slowest speed I can order from my ISP.

    Motherboard Recommendation

    Does not matter. Single or dual slot does not matter ether.
  9. Before I start just want you to know that I have found some boards but I want to see what everyone recommends. I'm looking for a motherboard that supports 4 PCIe 3.0 video cards at 16x each at the same time. I will be using 10 monitors at 1080p and 4 video cards in SLI sets of 2. So 2 EVGA 1080's in SLI and 2 EVGA 760's in SLI. For those of you that think I'm crazy and think it wont work you are sadly wrong. I have been running dual, tri, and quad video cards in my computers sense before the AGP video card slot came out. (e.g. refer to the image below.) As long as all the cards are the same chip manufacture (e.g. AMD, ATI, NVIDIA) it is almost 100% guaranteed to work.

    Dual Expansion Slots

    I'm looking for a case that has two sets of expansion slots and if possible is rack mountable. About the size of an 8U. Something like this would work except that I would need some long PCIe extension cables to get around any other cards that would be installed. The other problem with this case, it wont support my water cooling loop. It would be nice to have space for a second power supply as well.

    Lag after connecting more than 3 screens

    It's all the time lag. I just reinstalled windows fresh the other day along with the gfx drivers and it was the same problem. In regards to your friend. He must have been deep into the PvP stuff, that takes a lot of time. I run industry mostly and only log in once every few days for only a few hours if that.
  12. I have six 1080p ASUS gaming screens, and some crazy system latency when I plug more than two or three in at once. I use to run this same configuration on two EVGA 760's in SLI and a touch screen making 7 screens. I had similar latency with those cards. Sense upgrading to two 1080's in SLI almost nothing has improved other than the frame rate. I did a fresh install the other day and even with nothing installed but the video drivers I get the exact same problem. I run high quality DisplayPort cables for every screen. I have tried no SLI, single bridge SLI, and duel bridge SLI. Nothing changes. My system OS runs on duel SSD's in RAID 0. I don't play any games that span more than 1 screen. Mostly just work stuff and six EVE Online clients. One on each screen. Here is my setup.

    System Latency

    Four days and no one has any idea? Guess we know how smart everyone here really is.

    System Latency

    I guess no one knows so it might be a question for Linus and the team seeing that they got there GAMING at 16K RESOLUTION up and running. I am only running 1080p screens and intend on running 10 screens all together. I don't need them in sync as I am NOT playing games that cross multiple displays. I build sites, use Photoshop, configure/host game servers, and multi box EVE Online. So can Linus and the team give me a hand?
  15. That is why I said to check eBay. If my system of still running strong after all the crap (dropping it etc) I have done to it then a used one from eBay will likely be better than either of the laptops he posted in his first post. P.S. You can buy the same laptop I have on eBay for about $300 to $800.
