  1. 8700K on Asrock Z270M-ITX/ac

    No. You need a B360, H370, or Z370 board to run an 8th gen CPU.
  2. Need help choosing a graphics card for my new build

    I would personally lose the SSD to get a better GPU. RGB RAM isn't a concern for me at all, I just need it to work and perform well. The 1080Ti will definitely last longer than the 1080, it's the best gaming GPU on the market. The 1080 doesn't struggle at 1080p at all, and probably won't for another 3-5 years. By the time the 1080 struggles on 1080p, the 1080Ti will not be obsolete. Obsolete in this sense means when the hardware is incapable. Heck, even the GTX 780 isn't obsolete and is actually a pretty decent 1080p card. That said, whoever told you the 1080Ti will be obsolete by the time the 1080 struggles on 1080p is incorrect.
  3. Old parts old question

    If it'll run that CPU at all, you're looking at likely the most recent BIOS version.
  4. Are there any 5k Ultrawide G-Sync Monitors?

    I haven't actually seen 5K displays outside of iMacs.
  5. how important is VRM cooling on z370 mobo?

    It's pretty important. You don't want your VRMs overheating or potentially frying. If you have good VRM heatsinks, I wouldn't worry too much about getting a monoblock unless you're doing some fairly heavy overclocking.
  6. FBI Warns Users to Reboot Routers

    Are they? I honestly didn't know. I would imagine most people just use routers.
  7. The FBI has warned users to reboot their routers due to a malware attack allegedly unleashed by Russia. Bolded text added by me. I'm not aware if the malware would affect routers by other companies such as Motorola or Asus. Either way, I would strongly advise you all to reboot your routers just in case. Can't be too safe, right? Pretty serious stuff. Again, I would strongly advise you all to take the necessary security measures. A list of all the known affected routers: I don't have too much left to say at this point, but I hope this all gets patched soon. Hope you all can stay safe.
