  1. Imho the attention to detail is superb. I am definitely looking forward to pictures of the finished build!
  2. i picked up a fury nitro from sapphire for 250 bucks last yeas and they seem to trade blows with the 1070 as well.. have upgraded since to two of them in crossfire and can only recommend them (for the right price of course)
  3. you could download ccleaner and look up if it gives you the option of disabling the panel in the tools - > startup menu
  4. subscribe to floatplane then you'll know what happened to it ^^
  5. Honestly i think it is fine since the main point of the video still was the studio tour. All i can say is keep the great work up at LMG. (although i would love more vlog style content like the oldschool ltt stuff; for example as extra content on floatplane. Like the update-vlogs but more techy stuff)
  6. I bought some of this ram out of curiosity off aliexpress and tested it in several intel boards. All of them failed to post. On tomshardware some people got it to work with the official jdec speed for ddr3 1066mhz (7-7-7-20-27 timings), i was not able to replicate that however. I have only tried ddr2 and ddr3 though so i can't say whether or not there is also something similar going on with ddr4 memory. Unfortunately i can't find the article stating that this is caused by a special memory controller design atm but i'll drop a link to it later if i have got time.
  7. That is technically true but this particular kind of ram won't work on Intel-based boards due to a certain controller-design on that "amd only" memory.
  8. pretty much every 8th gen part is out of stock due to the rushed launch
  9. I know that I went a slight bit over budget here but at that pricepoint I'd personally really try to squeeze that 1080 into the budget https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZdpkxY cheers *edit I did forget the case but imo that choice only depends on personal taste.
  10. The thing is that you really should overclock the Xeon if you want to get a good gaming value out of it. Server boards are often proprietary and feature little to non OC-capability.
  11. The Skylake memorycontroller supports both - DDR3 and DDR4,
  12. If you feel comfortable buying used, the x58 stuff delivers a pretty good value for money imo. You could get some 4 or even 6-core Xeon for 40 bucks, a motherboard for 60 and DDR3 Ecc Ram for 50 to 100 bucks.
  13. amd processors tend to love fast(er) memory.. could be beneficial though. Althoug, honestly, I'd personally go for a new platform If I was in your situation.. some of the used sandy bridge or x58 stuff is pretty good value for money and you can usually oc the hell out of that
  14. wouldn't push it too far though on a motherboard that is not meant for OC'ing
  15. dude that depends on the chip.. no CPU is exactly the same and will behave differently. All you can do is look up what OC's where chieved with what voltage on your kind of CPU and go by that..
