  1. If you still have it, check the PCB, if a memory inductor is blown, send the picture to this guy
  2. You should definitely watch this video I'm sending your pictures to him
  3. Less than 500$ for a FTW edition GTX 1080, that's not gonna last long so hurry if you wanna pick one up. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-6284-RX
  4. Quite a pathetic person for hating people over a market issue being pushed by vendors. You think that store Newegg is using needs to sell a GTX 1070 at 500$? Welcome to corporatism, where demand changes and easy to manipulate people are hating on buyers. Would you hate on other gamers if they drove the market too far? Do you hate people over the price of things you don't even own? And you call them pathetic? wow.
  5. Thanks man! I wanna give mining a go, I got them at a really good deals on ebay and I live in Chile, electricity is at 11 cents right now and Ethereum is actually worth a bit more compared to the Chilean Peso so I get a bonus at the exchange. If it collapses I can always try another currency, I started my first rig (6xRX 580s), still testing it out, the Sapphire nitros did great but the one XFX has Elpida memory and I've had to tweak it. In my mind the Nanos would more or less make up for the 3 high wattage cards, hope it works, and again, thanks!
  6. So...I had been entertaining the idea of a mining rig for a while and I got 6 RX 580s at a very good price, but I got drunk one night and decided I wanted to try older hardware (I don't know either), and I bought 3 R9 Nanos, 1 R9 390, 1 R9 Fury and 1 R9 Fury X. Any problem running those 6 cards? They all have the same GPU except for the 390, but the deal is done (Drinking with ambien...SO F*UCKING WISE) and I wanted to ask if there could be a problem mixing them. Got no issues with the 580s, but I'm wondering on that mix I purchased while intoxicated (still at good prices surprisingly)
  7. Best thermal compound in the market is liquid metal, but it can be messy, haard to apply and you barely notice the benefit unless you apply it directly on the die. The best current TIMs for more normal use are not conductive. IC Diamond, Kryonaut, GE extreme, PK-3, none of those are conductive, and they're only surpassed by liquid metal, which considering the risks is not worth it unless you're planning on delidding. The time of AS 5 and such is over, for quite a long time. There is no reason to get anything conductive nowadays.
  8. To be perfectly honest, I bought a very high end board (for it's time) and I don't think I've used any of the features, asides from M.2 which may be important in the future and maybe thunderbolt if he cares about it, reliability and price should matter more.
  9. Given he doesn't seem to care much about features (for what I can tell) maybe an Asus 270-k and he can use the money saved to buy the 7700k in the first place. No thrills board, still has M.2, supports his chosen hardware and thrills cost money
  10. That's out of his price range. Max is 150.
  11. Sometimes you need a BIOS update. I have a Z87 board with a 4790k and never had a problem, but I've heard some people did. And you're not saving much by going with z170, plus, octane is like the one innovative thing about kaby lake (even if we won't see for a while )
  12. Rather randomly I found this, not personally familiar with the TUF line-up but I'm sure someone can give a more informed opinion, it just seems a really good deal compared to that z170-a. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/z4wqqs/asus-z270-mk2-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z270-mk2
  13. Agreed, maybe not in IPC but I would argue if someone sold a 6700K that can overclock like a 7700K, most would pay the extra 20, at least I would.
