  1. I’d take the advice of Mick Naughty and buy the i9-9900K, or even i9-9900KS, (if you can afford that, of course...)
  2. I had to make the same choice 1 year ago, between i7-8700K and i7-9700K. I chose i7-9700K, and I don’t regret it! The i7-9700K has more “muscles”, it stays cooler, and it works better in games.
  3. Thanks! Yeah, that’s what the other member from the Gigabyte forum said too. Also, I found a video on YouTube made by Buldzoid who said the same thing about Gigabyte boards.
  4. You did? Actually I just got the answer from somebody on the Gigabyte forum a few minutes ago.
  5. Hello! I recently discovered that there are 2 types of boards: 1: Daisy Chain & 2: T-Topology. From what I’ve heard, the daisy chain type works better with 2 memory modules, while the t-topology works better with 4 memory modules. Some say on the internet that the Z390 Aorus Master is T-Topology type. I couldn’t find a good link on this subject for this particular board. I use my PC as a workstation for music production. I don’t enable memory XMP (it’s a PnP type anyway). To me, it’s not so important to run memory at super speed, because I’m not a gamer. But I do need to move around large audio files, so I’d like to increase my memory size from 32GB to 64GB. Questions: 1. Is Z390 Aorus Master a t-topology type? 2. Is there a way to check if it’s a t-topology or a daisy chain type? 3. Is there something else that I should know?
  6. Hello! The manual of Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master, at page 69 states that RAID configurations between M.2 PCIe SSDs aren’t possible! That it’s only possible between M.2-SATA and SATA drives! But on the Gigabyte official site, at Key Features/ Aorus Performance/ they advertize 32Gb/s speed using a triple M.2 PCIe NVMe RAID-0 configuration! https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z390-AORUS-MASTER-rev-10#kf Did anyone try to make a RAID configuration with 2 or 3 M.2 PCIe NVMe drives?
  7. Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool was the problem! I created a bootable flash drive using Media Creation Tool and it worked in a USB 3.1 port.
  8. Thanks. But that’s not the question. The question is: can a Windows 10 bootable flash drive be connected to a USB 3.0 or 3.1 port to start installation?
  9. I do use that to download the .iso file in my PC. But I use the other one to make the boot drive.
  10. No, I use that one to download the .iso file in my PC. Later, I use Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool to create a boot-able flash drive.
  11. Hello! I’m curious if that’s how it goes for everyone. First of all, my mobo is Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master (rev. 1.0). I can boot with a flash drive to update the BIOS using any USB port: 2.0_3.0_3.1 But if I want to reinstall Windows 10 clean, I need to use a USB 2.0 port, because the 3.0_3.1 won’t work. I create Windows 10 boot drives using the program: Windows 7 USB-DVD Download tool. Am I missing anything, or is this normal?
  12. Well, in my case, I can’t talk about instability or overclock, because my modules are plug-n-play types @2666MT/s.
  13. So, I moved my DIMMs from slots 1+3 (A1+B1) to slots 2+4 (A2+B2). I benchmarked my PC using: Geekbench 4.3.3, Cinebench R15, Cinebench R20, FutureMark MemTest, CPU-Z 1.9, and Windows 10 rating command “winsat formal” in Command Prompt. AND THE RESULT IS... THE SAME! No gain and no loss in performance.
  14. Yeah! Your answer is pretty much what I also believed before: that both configurations (A1+B1) or (A2+B2) are the same thing. But some insist that A2+B2 is “the correct position”. Anyway, if I’m moving my DIMMs according to their advise, I can’t go wrong, right?
