  1. 6600k -> 7700k with GTX 1080 ti

    The i7-7700k is currently the best CPU for gaming, and it might even still be after the Coffee Lake CPUs since they're lowering the clock speeds. So if you feel like you have the money then go for it. Whether or not it is worth the money for you is harder to guarantuee.
  2. 6600k -> 7700k with GTX 1080 ti

    Naturally it only makes a difference once you are limited by CPU performance rather than GPU performance. And that mostly only happens once you get near 100fps(depending on the game of course). I'd say that when playing on 4K you would almost always be GPU limited even with a 1080ti, unless you're playing something like CS:GO. You could of course have a lot of stuff running in the background, in which case a 7700k would help. If you have your CPU 100% usage at all times during gaming, this seems to be a likely scenario. Cooling a 7700k is... interesting. I have a custom loop with a EKWB Supremacy Evo cooling my CPU and if I OC it with 1.3V it runs at 80+C while gaming. Through research I've learned that the only thing to do to get this thing to run cool is to delid it. I probably wouldn't expect to be able to OC it with a Hyper D92. It will probably be kinda hot even on stock speeds, but I'd guess still within bounds. All this being said, another option would be for you to wait right now. The new Coffee Lake CPU's will be coming out soon which will give you 2 more cores and 4 more threads, albeit at a lower clock speed. This requires you to buy a new motherboard though.
  3. How should I fight this claim???

    Would you say that a person using a graphics card for gaming 24/7 was utilizing his card in a way that would void warranty? I don't have the facts, but it doesn't sound right to me. Anyway, my main point is that you should avoid saying things that you don't 100% know are true. If you know for an absolute fact that ethereum mining = broken gfx card then fine. But I'm not sure that is the case.
  4. How should I fight this claim???

    I'm not sure you can say that using it for Ethereum mining = "stressed out the graphics card too much". As far as I know it's a valid use case for a graphics card.
  5. Viewsonic xg2703 or asus pg279q

    All the G-sync 1440p 144hz monitors use the same AU optronics panel, so you probably wont see much difference in panel quality. The Acer XB271HU uses a borderless version of the panel but otherwise it's the same. So I would go with whatever has a good price and/or is a brand you trust. I've seeen a LOT of people complain over the Asus PG279Q(backlight bleed), but the problems are present in all brands. I have a AOC Agon AG271QG and I'm very happy with it. Regarding quantum dot I cannot help you.
  6. I7 7700K 5.0ghz

    You will probably be fine at 4.8 GHz with those coolers. You might even be able to go higher, but as mentioned earlier it's hard to say.
  7. swapping Armor OC and Gaming X Coolers?

    According to this compatability list from EK it seems the same block fits on both the Gaming X 1070 and Armor OC 1080: https://www.ekwb.com/configurator/waterblock/3831109831564 That would suggest that you can do what you're suggesting.
  8. swapping Armor OC and Gaming X Coolers?

    Well seems that I was wrong Looks like none of them use the reference PCB. But I agree that they look very similar. It's hard to be sure without measuring anything though. I feel like the GPU chip looks kinda bigger on the gaming X, which it probably isnt, but the visual effect might be caused by some proportions not being the same. If you're not intimidated by the task I would probably just try to do it and see if it fits
  9. swapping Armor OC and Gaming X Coolers?

    I think the Gaming X is a custom PCB whereas the Armor card uses the reference PCB. I would defintely research this before attempting it if I were you.
  10. 1080, Vega, or even Volta?

    Well at least you're honest about it
  11. Before buying Dell S2417G, few questions

    It depends on the game. You will probably be able to run CS:GO and Overwatch(with slightly lower settings) at 1440p/144hz but something like The Witcher 3 only gets around 60fps with a 1070 at 1440p/Ultra Gsync will eliminate tearing, which is the issue you'd otherwise have As mentioned, Gsyncs main point is to eliminate tearing without having to enable vsync(and thereby limiting your FPS and introducing input lag). I think 1440p is kinda overkill for 24". It's very subjective though so you might not agree. IPS definitely has better colors and the colors will not distort based on your viewing angle. That said, I've heard lots of good things about the Dell TN panels. There are some 1440p/144hz Gsync monitors(I have one), but those I know are 27" and are kinda expensive(~600$-700$+).
  12. Which gtx 1070 ?

    Holy shit, you're right. Those are some really high prices.
  13. Which gtx 1070 ?

    The Strix cooler for this generation of nvidia cards seem to perform really well. For 3.50 € I'd defintely go with that one.
  14. 1080, Vega, or even Volta?

    I don't think this is entirely accurate. The 1070 is performing as good, or better, than a 980 ti. And there's nothing in the Maxwell architecture that can match a 1080 in performance.
  15. Problem with GTX 1080 TI

    Overwatch has a display-based fps cap at default. So assuming you have a 60hz display it'll cap fps at 70. You have to manually go into the graphics settings to change this limit.
