  1. 1) on the qvl that board has kits up to 4200mhz, you are good. 2) 2nd hand 7700Ks are overpriced as hell
  2. DDR stands for double data rate. The effective clock speed is actual clock speed x 2. 1600 x 2 = 3200, 1067 x 2 = 2134
  3. Sounds like you need to reinstall windows.
  4. It has two modules with two cores each. The two cores in each cores do share some stuff and that sharing of stuff does make it slower then a true quad core. This two cores per module is much better then multi threading and gives around a 70% performance boost over 40% from multi threading.
  5. It's great in every way except memory overclocking. The audio is great, bios is great, when I got it, everything just worked, didn't have to install drivers or anything.
  6. 1660 super is cheaper and faster so pick that up
  7. In summer my ambient reaches around 1.42V and with my NH-D15 I am able to cool my 8700K (not delidded) by simply running the voltage and clocks low and I can keep my blower 5700xt cool with a heavy undervolt. An undervolt on the cpu and a D15 should be enough to keep it cool, just don't push it. For the GPU, Liquid Metal will not help at all compared to a standard re paste. Re pasting is recommended but LM won't do anything because the Turing GPU's thermal density is too low for it to do anything. Just undervolting the 2080 super and dropping power limit should be enough if you have a good card. If the GPU temps get really bad putting on an aftermarket cooler can help drop those back to safe levels. Just do remember to half power consumption you need to lower clock speed by at most, 21% which is significant, but it won't wreck your experience.
  8. try getting another stick of what you have if you cant do that, get a 8gb 2666mhz crucial stick.
  9. Those kind of voltages are normal for zen 2. It's boost algorithm is very intelligent and will boost as high as it possibly can with out compromising reliability. Another thing is your all core OC voltage is not safe and will degrade your CPU, if you want to run 1.37V go for it but you have been warned.
  10. At this point in time the chance is high. The bios' supporting zen 2 have been out for over 5 months so it would have to be extremely old stock to have the wrong bios. There is a chance at it not having the right bios so it is a risk. Do remember that amd has some bios flash kit thing where they send you a cpu so you can update the bios, that is always an option if it comes with an old bios.
  11. When ever z390 gigabyte boards lose power from the PSU (being unplugged or psu turned off) it will retrain memory. This is what is happening in your case. I have a z390 aorus pro and the board sucks for memory oc and has many issues related to memory. Since clearing CMOS would usually fix this it is weird that it didn't in your case. I recommend re seating the sticks, raising VCCio and VCCsa voltages to 1.25V, rtt's (bottom of memory tab) to 40 40 120 120 60 60, setting everything manually and not using xmp, if not of these work and you still have the z170 system available for you to use, test if the sticks can run XMP on it.
