  1. Honestly you're fine with that SAT but thats only the starting point. I am currently a student at one of the Ivies and the average act here is ~34 and sat ~1480. They really care more about who you are your gpa and your extracurriculars. Its like a job interview where your prior work experience gets you in the door for the interview but what you say and the body of what you did and how it applies to what you're trying to do/ can bring to the school is most important. At your level the SAT sort of becomes irrelevant build your extracurriculars. Play sports, volunteer, start a school club or organization. The only unifying factor i see in my fellow classmates is that they all did at least one and many did multiple of those extracurriculars.
  2. I know you mentioned the no samsung because they are twice as expensive but they are really the gold standard in this space. Also from researching your drives the 970 evo is ~15$ more and offers better warrenty support better performance and a longer lifespan. What price were you quoted on those drives I just found the 970 evo 1tb ~165$. Also I would recommend buying it very soon as samsung had a power fault at their factory that destroyed millions of dollars of nand chips so prices may spike and prior to that there were rumors flying around of a nand and dram shortage.
  3. Hi all. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about the difference in performance between EK Vector series cpu blocks and corsair xc7 blocks or between EK vector rtx blocks and corsair xg7 blocks?
  4. Depends on your price point and preferences on looks. If looks arent a big deal the Nh-d14 is probably the best tower cooler within that height restriction coming in at exactly 160mm but may interfere with your ram/mobo so I'd check that first. You could also go with the above mentioned NHU12s or NH d-15s. Any of the above would knock the socks off the wraith.
  5. No-one really can tell especially with ray tracing being in its infancy your gpu may age fine or the level of ray tracing/ general textures may become more difficult. From my personal experience my gtx 780 worked absolutely fine at 1080p on almost all games even today I only upgraded once I bought an Ultra-wide monitor. If you lower settings you'll most likely be able to get well over three years out of it at playable framerates bar any crazy changes in the industry especially running the top of the line card now. If you go buy nvidias typical progression taking the gtx 1080ti out because it was a strong outlier your card will land some-wear between 3070-3080 and 4060-4070 which in line with the normal price to performance ratio and refresh times should have you equivalent to a mid tier card about 3-4 years from now. But of course this is all speculation and with the way the graphics card market has slowed you may be fine for much longer. Now if you are at 4k this may be a different story but even then worst comes to worst you can also downsample in extremely difficult games to 1080p so you have 1 rendered pixel displayed by 4 giving perfect scaling and making the games much easier to run without wierd artifacts that come from resolutions that don't perfectly divide.
  6. Basically wht he said and it depends on how long you want to keep your pc. I'd push 1.35 easy and used to run it at 1.4 for a bit. I have put insane almost 1.47 volts for benchmarks in order to get 5ghz but i havent run it at that voltage since then as its risky. Also temps have a huge affect on it so if your liquid cooling you should be able to push harder
  7. But are the textures stills screwy? Also nothing liek alll low technical settings running at 60fps on 1080p gtx 780.
  8. Oh really could you link that didn't seem to come up in my google search. I guess it just must have coincided with my pc momentarily bricking.
  9. I mean forgive me if Im wrong but i would feel like creating a complete 1 billion plus transistor Micro processor whether it be arm based or an x86 cpu would be able to be done in the same manner.
  10. interesting because i have a friend with a 980 and he is having no problems post update. Are yu running the most recent driver.
  11. Bad day for 780's. What were you doing before the problem did you drop you rpc take the card out or were just using it as normal.
  12. I feel like the everyone knows the "nm" limit has been used for years but this comapnys with huge rnd budgets have been able to make those breakthroughs and I almost cant see that not happening in the near future at least with intel.
  13. Also if this was during the huge gpu shortages this year they may have had trouble adequate stock for you.
