    As for the ASUS STRIX, there's a review up on computerbase.de

    Guys, if a game is running at 1080p.... OF COURSE an i5 is a freaking bottleneck... Anyone who buys these cards should NOT be running 1080p.... 1440p at least!

    PCGuy_5960 reacted to Sintezza in Which X99 board and RAM?   
    Technically speaking Asrock is using a ISL6379 pwm for their cpu main vrm on their X99 boards.
    The ISL6379 is a 6+1 phase hybrid pwm.
    They used ISL6611A phase doublers to double the phase count to 12 pwm phases.
     
    Basicly there are no true 12 phase pwm´s on the market that are used on motherboards today.
    Basicly it doesnt go higher as 8 true phases.
    Internation rectifier IR and Chil are the only ones who provide 8 true phase pwm´s.
    ISL doesnt care any 8 phase pwm´s.
     
    There has been one exception in the past that was a true 10 phase pwm,
    from Voltera the VT1165 or VT1185, those were used on certain X58 boards.
    However those pwm´s cannot be used on modern motherboards today, because they are not VRD12 certified.
     
    Msi also uses ISL implementations on their X99 boards.
    The X99 godlike gaming, the most expensive board which is advertised as being a massive 12 phase digital vrm, is basicly just marketing.
    Msi uses an ISL6388 pwm which is 6+1 phase aswell.
    They use ISL6617 phase doublers to double the phase count to 12 pwm phases.
    Same implementation on the Msi X99 Mpower board, and also the Xpower board.
     
    But the Msi X99S Sli plus also has the same ISL6388 pwm on board.
    But on that board you only count 8 chokes.
    So what that basicly means is that they took only 4 phases and doubled them to 8, which is a bit meh wenn it comes to highend platforms like X99 is.
     
    On Z170 platforms there are not manny true 8 phase for cpu vcore boards.
    This is because to achieve 8 true phases for cpu vcore on Z170 you gonne need to implement an additional pwm, which adds allot to the cost.
    Only the realy highend boards have 8 true phase for cpu vcore.
    Out of my head, Asus Maximus 8 Extreme, Asus Z170 Deluxe, Asus Z170-WS, Gigabyte Z170X G1 gaming, Gigabyte Z170 Soc Force, EVGA Z170 Classified.
    And thats why those particular boards are that more expensive then boards with just a single pwm solution.
     
    For Z170 platform you need multiple imput rails.
    namely
     
    - Cpu vcore - VCC
    - igpu - VCCGT
    - System agent - VCCSA
    - QPI/Vtt - VCCio
    - And of course Dram.

    PCGuy_5960 got a reaction from Mortis Angelus in Any difference: Amd Fx-8320 vs 8350?   
    There is a really small one... The FX-8350 is a higher bin than the 8320 so it might overclock further(not much)... Other than that there is no difference aside from the clock speed...

    Thanks, but as PCGuy says, they're quite expensive in Europe.
    Ah great, thanks. The Extreme6 version might be great though, as I like to have a power/reset button on the board itself.

    It's all up to you! If you think the Extreme6 is worth the extra money, then go for it... The Extreme4 is a solid option if you still want good performance and don't want to pay a premium for it...

    What some where saying that this was a GTX 1070 was BS though... These where real press images, we can only say that those renders had some slight "imperfections" or "inaccuracies"

    PCGuy_5960 reacted to App4that in There's really no point in getting a gtx 1060   
    We'll never know what happened. The power connections were different but that could have been an earlier model of the 1070, who knows. Wouldn't have mattered anyway, but would have been cool to see what they did in benchmarks. With some 1060 overclocking to 2.2 without touching the voltage it is rather a shame you can't SLI them.
     
    Ether way you have earned your you were right.

    I am so frustrated about the lack of SLI, I mean, come on, FUCK YOU Nvidia... I was going to buy 1 and buy and another for SLI later (and probably to get better performance than a single 1080 )  Anyway, I am probably still gonna buy one...
     
    We all know why they did that though... It might have outperformed or just matched a GTX 1080, so...

    The only reason I could find for not buying a Xeon is the lack of overclockability... Other than that the Xeons offer outstanding value for money...

    PCGuy_5960 reacted to App4that in There's really no point in getting a gtx 1060   
    My personal guess is they skipped it to save them the worry of driver support for SLI with it. I've worked enough manufacturing to know for all we know they make more money selling two 1060s. But I totally agree it was a dumb move from their perspective. I'm glad they did it though because it gives people a reason to buy the 480. Which unless the AIB cards save it is behind the 1060 in price and performance when you look at the AIB examples at 249us. Like the MSI Aero.

    Not realy, but it depends on the implementation and the quality of other components used in the VRM cirquitry of course.
     
    Asrock is using Decent components on their X99 boards.
    And because they are using 6 phases doubled to 12 they also price them reasonable.
    high quality dual mosfet designs from fairchild, 60A blackwing inductors.
    And 12K nichicon capacitors.
     
    Msi askes top dollar arround $450 / $500,- for their Godlike Gaming board, and it has the same vrm implementation of a $220,- X99 mpower board.
    And thats the thing, its basicly a ripp off.
    And then i dont even start about the Msi X99 Gaming 9 ACK, which is 4 phases doubled to 8 on a $400,- + board....
     
    Phase doubling is exaly very common especialy on main stream platforms like Z97 and Z170 etc.
    This is because you need more imput rails on the mainstream platform because of the igpu.

    Just for the record, I tried pushing directly on the CPU heatspreader to see if it makes any kind of difference (hoping to spread the compound below the heatspreader). And I think that's it, the first core is still hotter than the others but don't go over 80°C in stress tests. It appears that the thermal compound bellow the heatspreader is very sensitive to pressure... Which means it's possible to move it by applying pressure while mounting a cpu cooler for example. This is total crap

    It also depends on the scaling. Remember, 480s are 60-70$ cheaper
