  1. I used the Glacier blocks and I'm pretty sure the 1080ti is different. The 1070 and regular 1080 are the same, but I think the ti version may be different. They should still fit though. I'm still using the pc as my daily work station and its been great. doing 1070 sli is pointless though so at this point I'm just keeping it this way for the looks. I've been thinking about selling both cards and getting a 2080ti but at the same time I just want to leave it since its running fine for my use.

    Sound Problem

    this could be a physical problem with the board then. if for some reason the audio driver on the motherboard is damaged, the only work around I can suggest would be to get an inexpensive sound card if you have an available PCIE slot. If you've already tried everything I suggested, as well as a clean windows install, I honestly don't know what else could be the problem. Some computer specs would help. Are you running an graphics card or onboard graphics? Do you have NVidia control panel or AMD Radeon? Only other thing that comes to mind would be to do a CMOS reset as well if you haven't already.
  3. you can run Memtest and verify that the RAM is or is not corrupted. That would be my next step. If it is corrupted, then you know what the problem is.
  4. KMODE BSD can be caused by corrupted RAM or incorrect/missmatched timings. On the blue screen did you have any other codes after the KMODE? Sometimes it will point to a specific driver. It is possible that with Windows 7 the RAM is being picked up even though there is a problem with it. I'm assuming your RAM does not all match since you have 10gb total. You may want to purchase a complete matching kit or just run with the 8gb for now.

    Sound Problem

    my best suggestion to you would be go to the manufacture website of the board, I'm assuming Asus in this case, and download the latest Audio Driver. Install the driver and restart PC and see if this brings your audio back. If this doesn't work, next thing I would do is go to device manager, uninstall any sound devices and then reinstall. Try these and let us know if anything changes.
  6. I have a 6300 system that my daughter is using and an 8350 that I use to mess around. Although both very old, the 8350 is MUCH faster then the 6300. The 6300 is overclocked 5% and gets a 420 in Cinebench. The 8350 is at 4.8ghz and gets an 850-880. I would stay away from the 9590 as it's usually overpriced and very power hungry and runs hot. One other option would be an 8320, but you can probably find an 8350 for pretty cheap used on eBay.
  7. if I did the math right, that's about $300 US dollars? if so, that's a not a bad deal at all. I bought an MSI 1060 6gb at the start of the year for $379 and it didn't come with anything. I think GPU prices will continue to come down as the new cards are launched, but that right now is a good deal since a 1060 here is the same price, but you're also getting an SSD, so nice bonus
  8. are you using any splitters for the fans or even a hub or are each fan plugged directly into a header on the mobo? sometimes when using a splitter it can screw with the rpm readings. as for the temp spike, if this is the same reading in different softwares it may be very well the cpu is spiking due to a background program running. for example, with my Ryzen system and with Ryzen master open, it utilizes the cpu quit a bit and will make temp spike up to 50c then immediately drop back to the 30c idle temp I normally have. if you want to change the fan curve so it doesn't make the fans ramp up like that you can look in the bios and you should be able to adjust the curve in there.
  9. Two things I would verify at this point: 1:Was it a fresh windows install on the drive you are using to boot? I didn't see you mention that 2: This could be a network issue. I would make sure you have the latest network driver installed right off your motherboards website If both of those are done already, may consider a fresh install of windows again just to rule it out.
  10. so long as you are not running multiple rgb software, you will be fine. I have been running Tridentz RGB on my Asus Crosshair for almost a year now and have no problems with SPD data. I use the Asus Aura to control them.
  11. I believe in most manuals they do say the 4pin is optional.
  12. exactly. I haven't seen anything yet that needed the 4 extra pins under normal conditions.
  13. Using a screwdriver is the easiest and cheapest way, but if you really don't want to do that, I have used these in some custom builds and they are very nice: https://www.amazon.com/KNACRO-Chassis-Switch-computer-restart/dp/B01MT3277L/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1529681620&sr=8-4&keywords=pc+power+switch
  14. It will run fine with only the 8 pin connected. You will still be able to overclock as well. Have fun, sounds like a good setup.
