  1. The new motherboard and cpu are up and running. Windows 10 asked for activation. It didn't reactivate and microsoft support told me to buy a new key.
  2. When you isolate the OS to a partition, do you have to do it manually or is there a tool for that? Meaning do you have to manually create a partition and find the OS files and move them, or is there a better way?
  3. Oh that would be reallly bad Thank you.That probably would have cause me a lot of pain
  4. Reinstall windows on a drive that already has windows? Sorry for the noobage
  5. Then I can just go in and remove realtek drivers and install the new ones for supremefx? And remove intel uhd just for the sake of space
  6. In that scenario, what would I need to do? Trying to be prepared for potential headaches and the least downtime
  7. Just ordered a new CPU, Motherboard and Ram. (3700x, Asus Crosshair hero Vii X470. 32gb 2x16 3600 CL16) Swaping from a 6600k I know I'm going to have to flash the motherboard. Not sure what I will need to remove, or how to go about removing them. (Audio drivers from old Mobo, Intel igpu drivers, more?) Will I be able to reuse my Windows key? Anyone gone through this process?
  8. “this is Nvidia trying as hard as they can to sell high refresh rate gaming as something we need due to lack of innovation” “Basically , I wish they'd focus on realism over refresh rate.” *Larry David Outro*
  9. I know, just figured the newer architecture. Guess I'll wait and scrap for a 3700x
  10. 6600k beats out a 2700x in games? Damn. The price is so appealing.
  11. Currently on a 6600k @4.4ghz. It's not getting the job done for my multi tasking. Looking at grabbing a 2700x for my 2070super. Wanted to go 3rd gen, but the prices are still a little high and 4000 series will be announced in a few months. So this gets me on the platform and might just stick with it. It's $159 right now which is insane. Question is, will I see a gaming performance drop off? Hard to find comparisons of a 2700x and 6600k. I run a 1440p 144hz monitor, play rainbow 6, overwatch, ARK, Morhau.
  12. I didn't see a thread for this yet. Let's share deals we find so we all benefit I'll be linking USA links. Philips Fidelio X2HR $99 Amazon Philips SHP9500 $55 Amazon 2700x $159 Amazon 2600x $119 Amazon Intel 660p 1tb nvme $82 Newegg
  13. Uhhhh they are focused on realism. Ray tracing.
  14. Probably a year from then. So somewhere around June 2020? A guess 7 heatpipes and extra surface area on the towers. I'm sure Noctua will deliver improved performance, but I can't imagine it's going to be that significant.
