  1. Ok interesting, didn't think about the sub. I am just trying to keep the cost down without having to get new speakers or a whole new setup. I am stuck with not being able to go 4k while keeping the same receiver. Another option is to just simply go to a sound bar.
  2. Hi all, I want to get a 4k TV but my AV Receiver doesn't support 4k passthrough with HDMI so I need to upgrade it. I want to keep the speakers I have and I am not sure what spec receiver I need to power the speakers. The receiver is an STR-KS360S and the manual is attached, it has a specification page and I have also taken a capture of the page and attached it. If someone can provide some recommendations on what receiver to get that'd be great or what I need to look for! Thanks! 4130031113.pdf
  3. It's at the back of the case, mine was just hanging and they were also labeled for me with text telling me what it is. Do you not see anything at the back that looks like a sata power connector?
  4. I also recommend the Sennheiser 598C, I have those and they sound great. I use a Schiit Magni amp with my AKG K712 which sound amazing so I can also recommend the Schiit stuff.
  5. The backlight issue with IPS is mainly what is called light bleed. This is when the backlight leaks out of the side of the panel. For gaming, a TN panel is just fine. You sit directly in front of your computer so you won't have any color shifting issues which IPS solve by having wider viewing angles. Color is also more accurate on IPS but again, for gaming, you really won't notice it. I would go for a TN panel gaming monitor.
  6. Guess I'll have to look into doing this then, my cpu throttles with FPU stress it hits 100c on almost all cores and Aida64 says 20% throttle that's 4.7ghz AVX (I got a 200mhz offset for AVX). Will get a delid tool then and some liquid metal!
  7. So I'm back on my PC now and my temps seem a little crazy again. I am at 4.9ghz on 1.318v load / 1.296v idle. Intel Extreme Tuning Utility stress temps max 75c. If I use RealBench or LinX they can spike to most was 98c on a core. I wonder if it's just Intel's paste and I need to delid or I have another issue with temps like that on that voltage. (thought delid was 1.35v+ and below would be ok). Maybe repaste? try different paste?
  8. An update on this... had to up voltage to 1.29 to get OCCT Linpack stable, I bumped it to 1.3 to round it off so I think I am stable now, but you never truly know! Anyway.. Linpack spikes my temps to about 93c, Prime95 I get 70 - 80c, only Linpack loves to heat it up real hot, but I'll never be doing anything that stressful.
  9. I undid each screw then tightened them back and it seems to have fixed it 70c full load now and same temps as yours on idle. Must have not been seated properly, will keep checking on it and see how it goes.
  10. It's the H150i PRO. The fans run at about 700 - 900rpm and the pump is on its balanced mode. It doesn't spin up as the water temp hits about 30c. I'll have to do a longer run like 1hr+ to actually see how the cooler holds out but in reality, I am not having 100% load for a really long time. The spikes are strange, going to do more testing, give the thermal paste some time to settle?
  11. Hi all, Straight into overclocking with this chip and I've managed to get mine at 5ghz at 1.280v, still need to do some testing to make sure but no crashes on aida64, p95, cinebench, occt & unigine. I have a question about temps. Temps are: Load: 70 - 75c Idle: 30c But I have a problem, because for some reason 1 or 3 cores will spike to 95c very briefly, it spikes less than a second. The last CPU I used was a Quad Core Q9550 (yes my old PC is really old) and when I overclocked it I always had consistent stable temps on air with no spikes.
  12. Ok if its just for reporting RPM, I am going to plug that fan header into one of the EXT fan ports, CPU_OPT won't do anything as its just for mirroring CPU_FAN? My case fans are in CPU_FAN (the PWM Hub), Problem is my case fans spin up based on CPU temp so they may run at max at full load when the corsair doesn't spin up as its based on water temp so they run about 900 rpm each. Hmmm, hard to figure out what is actually best. I think I'll end up plugging the corsair fans into the fan hub so they all spin up linear and i'll try match the pump speed curve so its on full a
  13. I am going to swap them round. I used the hub because it is more convenient for keeping things tidy, only one wire going to the motherboard which is completely hidden, all fans then go around the back into the hub. Do you think the h150i pro simply uses the fan header for power? It doesn't control the fans from the motherboard at all. The manual does say plug into CPU_FAN. I think this is just for people who don't have anything else to plug into that port or the motherboard errors?
  14. Hi all, Specs: i7 8700k CPU Corsair H150i PRO CPU Cooler ASUS ROG Maximus Hero Motherboard I am stuck on my build with configuring my fans. I have the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Glass case which comes with a PWM Fan Hub. The hub had 2 intake (front) and 1 exhaust (rear) already connected. I plugged in the 12v SATA connector and I plugged in the connector from the Hub > CPU_OPT on the motherboard. The Corsair H150i PRO I plugged the 3 pin fan port into 4 port CPU_FAN on the motherboard (excludes the PWM pin?) Now in the ASUS EFI B
