  1. I bought Helicon GoXLR couple months ago, and been super happy with it. When gaming with friends, in many occasions volume levels fluctuate quite a lot depending what is going in the game. Since GoXLR offers virtual output devices, it's super nice when you can assign "Game"-interface for games, and when game volume rises it's easy to tune it down with one slider in mixer. And now in problem. I've noticed that some of games do not get affected by "Output"-device assignment (ex. Barotrauma, WoW Classic). Is that app and device preference selection something that developers have to build support in their games/apps to work, or is that completely handled by Windows? Example for Spotify, I can easily swap on the fly output device in settings, and it affects immediately to output device.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm pretty sure that someone has asked about this before, but couldn't find any other kind of "Windows 10 move" topics, than going from HDD->SSD or replacing disk with bigger one. But I'm planning to upgrade my computer during the spring (going from i7-6800k to i7-9900k) which would mean replacing mb and cpu. My current windows installation is on m.2 drive, and I wonder does windows nowadays support if I just take that m.2 and move it to new motherboard, or do I have to go through whole windows install process again?
  3. Thanks for comments. My "Load"-scenario is on CPU Aida64 stress test run around 40 minutes, and GPU stress test with FurMark. I'm actually really happy with GPU results, especially that looks like I don't have to run 120mm EK-Vardar EVO's more than ~500-600rpm to keep temps where I said them to be. Maybe only solution would be to bump up the fan curves, to start cool more agressively when going above maybe 50 degrees...?
  4. Hello dear fellows! At the begin of year I started my first X99 build with i7-6800k, and I've been very happy with it so far. Basically I was running EVGA FTW GTX1080 and i7-6800k, all with stocks clocks, and CPU cooled with Corsair Cooling Hydro H90, and everything packed in Fractal Define R5 case. Couple weeks ago I started to think, if I'd step up, and build by first custom water cooling loop for PC, so I sat down and placed order for EK. Ordered two 120x240 radiators, CPU block and GPU block for my build. Yesterday I finished my build, so it's time to go and test how new cooling solution performs. I have to say, I'm really happy with GPU results, but CPU, oh boy... I've installed radiators in the way that front radiator gets fresh air in, and fans are pushing cool air through radiators in the case. Second radiator is installed to top of case, in the way that fans pull in case air through radiator out of case. But yeah, my temp results before and after the upgrade. Before temperatures: Ambient: 24,5 C Idle CPU: 37 C Load CPU: 66 C Idle GPU: 58 C Load GPU: 82 C With new custom loop: Ambient: 23,5 C Idle CPU: 40 C Load CPU: 60 C Idle GPU: 45 C Load GPU: 67 C I honestly wonder, is i7-6800K just so damn hot chip, that block just can't cool it fast enough event with water, or am I maybe doing something wrong? I've reservoir/pump combination, and I filled system with about 0,8L of EK CRYOFUEL coolant, tilted case in the way that system should be pretty much air free. Any help and comments would be really appreciated! Like I said, this is my first custom water cooling loop, so I've really no idea what I should be expecting as results.
  5. Thanks excellent to hear! Do you mind to share on what settings you achieved 4Ghz?
  6. Thanks for suggestion! 5820K was actually an option when I was comparing CPUs, but price difference between 6800K and 5820K was ~30 EUR, so thought that doesn't make difference, considering getting two years "fresher" CPU.
  7. I asked from couple of suppliers here in Finland about delivery times for 1080Ti, but they couldn't give any solid estimates, so I decided to go with 1080 for now. 1080Ti upgrade might come ahead, after some reviews come out, and availability gets better.
  8. I've been so long Intel enthusiast, that since Ryzen is so fresh and new, and build is coming for daily work usage, I thought that sticking with Intel is more safer option at this point. I want to see some actual user experiences of longer term usage of Ryzen, before starting to think about changing team.
  9. Hello folks! I thought that this might be great time to join in LTT community, when starting a new build for work and more casual usage. We started to film new Virtual Reality serie (as a hobby) few months ago, and now I've been carrying my old rig between studio and office few times a week, so I decided to get new workstation for myself at the office, and leave old one to Studio to perform HTC Vive and Oculus tasks. Old rig is: Case: Fractal Design R4 Mobo: ASUS Maximus VI HERO Z87 CPU: i7-4770K 4-core Memory: Kingston HyperX black 1600MHz DDR3, 32GB SSD-OS: Kingston SSDNow V300 480GB SSD-Apps: 2x Samsung 850 EVO SSD 1TB, in RAID0 SSD-Hot Storage 1: Samsung 840 EVO SSD 250GB SSD-Hot Storage 2: Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500GB PSU: Corsair RM550, 80 Plus Gold - 550W GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 And now we can get to interesting part, the new build. I'm especially interested to see, how noticable difference is between 3 years ago done build and new one. Here's what I've placed order so far: Case: Fractal Design R5 Mobo: ASUS STRIX Gaming X99 CPU: i7-6800K, 6-core (hopefully this clocks to 4,0GHz) Cooling: Corsair Cooling Hydro H90 Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 3000MHz, 32GB SSD-OS: Samsung 960 EVO SSD 500GB, M.2 SSD-Apps: 2x Samsung 850 EVO SSD 1TB, in RAID0 HDD-Storage: 2x Western Digital Red 2TB, in RAID0 PSU: Cooler Master V1000, 1000W GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 Monitors: 2x Acer Predator XB271HU 27" Gaming monitors I really look forward to see how fast 960 EVO is in booting compared to normal SSD, and like before said, overall can you find differences in daily usages (After Effects, Premiere, Gaming), compared to old setup. I'll keep posting after get my order, hopefully in couple of weeks! ...so excited!
