  1. Hello Mates, I have recently upgraded my speakers to Logitech Z906, and I mostly play Games and Watch movies, no music on PC (so lets not talk about how bad Z906 is with Music - I know that already). My question is if anyone has any experience with this Z906 with 5.1 channel through the 3.5 mm cables provided and getting an optical cable would make any difference when the device decode the sound all by itself. It is interesting for you to know that the onboard audio is ALC1220 (Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming 2.0). Should I keep the 3.5mm analog configuration or I should try for the digital input for the speaker? Will there be any major difference in Game/Movie sounds?
  2. I would mostly agree with @Streetguru, As your PC hardware is still capable I would suggest some options for you. Option A 1. Remove the complete watercooling, get a good AIR cooler and overclock gently the 4yr old CPU. 2. Get the stock GPU fans back on the GPUs and you are all set Option B 1. Remove the complete watercooling, get a something like Corsair H series or NZXT Kraken AIO for the CPU. 2. Get the stock GPU fans back on the GPUs and you are all set Option C (I would have done this) 1. Remove the complete watercooling, get a something like Corsair H series or NZXT Kraken AIO for the CPU. 2. Sell the existing cards and get a single GTX 1070 TI or GTX 1080 (choosing the GPU upto you) and all set. Option C is my preferred because I would not ask to change the CPU-Mobo-RAM as it wouldn't give you any huge framerate boost in your games. With the new GPU and the existing CPU setup there would be very negligible or I would say that a synthetic difference. THere will be no real-life difference in geting a new PC. And modern games do not scale much with the SLI system, for an example you would not gain much with 2x 1070 vs single 1080 TI
  3. Thanks to both of you. @jonnyGURU its not that I don't need the UPS, but its like a thing good to have. Where I live a voltage Stabilizer costs nearly same or more than the APC 600VA UPS, so why not get the item which gives me another benefit of those rare power cuts.
  4. According to Outervision website, my system requirement is somewhere like 330-340 watt. I want to buy the APC 600VA ups which is like 360watt, I did a lot of research and I know this is just making it there, I should get the 1100VA model. But I am not bothered about the backup it can provide, there is barely a power cut where I live, but some voltage fluctuation is seen often. So my aim is to have a stable power source for my PC. How is the AVR function in the APC 600VA back-UPS (BX600C-IN) for my purpose? Shall I buy it or get the 1100VA model (it is actually more than double the price of the 600VA)
  5. Those blings on those chosen H370 boards are not the main reason (but one of the reasons I wouldnt deny) attracts me, the main reason is that the more HSIO lanes in H370 are more than B360 and the H370 boards have the better ALC1220 audio engine, this is important to me. You might have noticed that all that boards I mentioned have that ALC1220 audio engine. HSIO lanes are important for me, may be not all those I would use, but I have too many USB and SATA engagements, in future I will buy one NVMe M.2 as well. More to say B360 and H370 have a price difference of less than 1000INR = $14-15 so it doesnt make sense for me to buy B360 to save only that amount and sacrifice features This is what I am looking for, how much FPS difference? Any at all? Can I run that 3000Mhz C16 RAM to 2666Mhz C14 (C13 if possible) or it would run in 2666Mhz C16? One more thing that the 3000Mhz RAMs run with 1.35V whereas the 2666Mhz runs with 1.2V, when I put the 3000Mhz RAM into a H370 board then will the downclocked RAM gets 1.2V or 1.35V? Can a H370 board handle the 3000Mhz RAMs properly? I am adding this to my OP
  6. Hello Everyone, I am upgrading from my 3rd Gen i5 to the 8th Gen i5. I had waited a long time for the H370 to become available, however when it is here, I am in a dilemma to choose the right one. I have watched so many reviews, guides, benchmarks, videos etc. but in none of those I found my answer. So, lets ask here too. My build: 1. CPU: i5 8400 2. Motherboard : ?? TBD ?? 3. RAM: Corsair or G Skill 3000Mhz 8GBx2 C16 (C15 is hardly available in my place) Things I already have: 4. GPU: Zotac 1060 6GB amp edition 5. HDD: 1TB WD Blue 6. SSD: 250GB Samsung 860 Evo 7. PSU: Corsair CX600 Now lets come to the question. How much is the performance difference in Games when I compare the below set of boards with i5 8400 + 8GBx2 3000Mhz C16 RAM: Asus ROG STRIX H370-F GAMING $172 GIGABYTE H370 AORUS Gaming 3 WIFI $165 AND Gigabyte Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING 2.0 $246 Gigabyte Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING WIFI $269 Asus Strix Z370-F Gaming $243 Asrock FATAL1TY Z370 GAMING K6 $215 Because the difference is only in RAM frequency which I cannot use in H370, it is limited to 2666Mhz, so how much is the performance difference with 3000Mhz? Its like a bad feeling that I have a higher speed RAM but I cannot use it because of the motherboard limitation. Now when we consider the performance then comes the price, the prices above are what I pay in India. So is it worth going the Z370 way or take the H370? I would never go for future processor upgrade so no question of having the Z370 for future upgrades. I might overclock the GPU but that has nothing to do with the Board I guess. Now for the people out there who might suggest me to get 2666Mhz RAMs, to answer them, I can only find RAMs of 2400Mhz and above 3000Mhz, nothing in between are available. One more thing that the 3000Mhz RAMs run with 1.35V whereas the 2666Mhz runs with 1.2V, when I put the 3000Mhz RAM into a H370 board then will the downclocked RAM gets 1.2V or 1.35V? Can a H370 board handle the 3000Mhz RAMs properly?
