I can't speak for that specific card but my 290 Tri-X maxes out at 70C.

Good luck with that. Notice the OS and peripherals.

However, 980's suck for workstations.

AMS's 8 core processors are great for new games coming out that are starting to use more than 4 threads. The FX 9590 is close to the performance level of 4770k in multicore performance but single core the i7 wins by a lot. Part of the reason the FX CPUs single core performance is due to the architecture. They aren't technically 8 cores, they are 4 modules/cores that are in split in half and seen as individual cores but hut they share resources. Honestly, AMD is better in budget scenarios and shouldn't be based off of what kind of tasks you will be doing. Anyways, AMD won't be coming out with a new line of CPUs until next year at the earliest. The current platform is about 3 years old and is part of the reason behind the performance difference.

No because the same clock on different CPUs doesn't mean the same amount of performance. Intel CPUs give you a lot of punch per clock while AMD CPUs tend to need much higher clocks to even get close to the same performance.

They do if they happen to see it but most of the time you have to use the report function.

Titan haves technologies exclusive to their line that the rest of the Geforce cards do not. This is why they are better at production.

I heard that you can add one gpu and one more radiator without straining the pump. Anything more would require a second pump.

I don't think the pump in the H220X is powerful enough to accommodate the expansion of the loop you are planning.

You didn't specify about Asus being the only to update without a cpu. You only said they are the only one that allow to update through usb. Anyways, yes you would need to buy a cheap CPU.

That is not true as it is the industry standard and has been for years. Here is a link to MSI's guide to doing it: http://service.msicomputer.com/msi_user/Support/images/TroubleSt/BIOS_FD.pdf

The 4790k is compatible with board with a BIOS update.

It sounds like you don't have a Haswell chip which would prevent you from doing the update.

Pretty much every board lets you update using USB, just not Asus.

Sometimes a single bridge doesn't provide enough bandwidth, especially on resolutions higher than 1080p. A second bridge solves this problem.

Overclocking is pretty much in a sense, a cherry on top of a sundae. Is it necessary or required? No but it's a bonus. If you have a overclocked system, good for you. If you don't, also good for you.

He obviously wasn't intending to be record breaker. If you are going to be nasty over a simple motherboard that won't affect the stock performance what so ever, you probably shouldn't be on this site. To everyone else, how does a B85 make this unbalanced?

Broadwell has actually been delayed so far back that it will only be a few months ahead of Skylake.

The 4790K is actually more powerful than the 4820k so getting the 4820k is kind of pointless. I don't really understand your problem with the iGPU when you are actually paying more for one without. Trying to stay within that budget will be impossible for X99.

I wasn't telling anybody to get anything. I was just explaining the reason why there can be better performance, even though it's mainly only noticed on lower end computers. Also, thank you for the link. I noticed that mainstream support ends next year but they will keep doing security updates.

I'm sorry but when they compare 760 vs the 280X, the the resolutions are different during the benchmarks.

You literally used the worst site possible. gpuboss.com is an absolute garbage site that uses underhandedness to to make one gpu to appear better than another. I guarantee that any other websites will show the Titan Z winning.

Sorry nut the 970 doesn't wipe the floor with the 290X. They are fairly even with the 290X being slightly more powerful. Yes the 970 is at a great price point but the gain in performance isn't that much when you compare the change from Fermi to Kepler.

Comment reply on mspring's Completed Build: Project: STORM SHADOW

Not necessarily, it could just be a shrink, and when they shrink there is more room for more transistors which they always take advantage of. Always gotta be on top am I right?

Comment reply on mspring's Completed Build: Project: STORM SHADOW

They wanted to get ahead of AMD so they released early since there has been delays on the 22nm. The jump in performance is pretty much the same as jump from the 6xx series to 7xx. When 20nm comes out, there will be even more transistors on the chip which means an even higher level of performance at even lower TDP. Also, AMD's Pirate Islands will be on 20nm as well next year.

The 980 and 970 are still using the old 28nm lithography and not the 20nm that it was supposed to originally.

I would honestly wait for the true Maxwell cards to appear and see what AMD is coming up with before I would decide.

Sorry for the necro post but I would like to point out that Broadwell will use DDR3 as it will be Z97. Skylake will more than likely DDR4 though.

It's better for gaming because it uses less system resources than Windows 7. Also there are rumors from reputable people suggesting Windows 7 will lose support next year. I don't know if that's true though since they just cancelled XP support.

Most of those bad reviews were from a couple years ago and Kingston has improved their SSDs. It was mainly the first few batches that were bad.

If you overclock your cpu at all, you void your warranty anyways. To answer your question, Intel doesn't care as long as you don't overclock your cpu.

When it boots up before it reaches the OS part, you should see a little indication noting keys to enter the BIOS or boot setup. Go to the boot setup and pick whichever device you were using to install the OS.

Literally the only two differences are 200 MHz and the 5930K supports 40 PCIe lanes while the 5820K supports 24.

If you remove the middle drive bay, your graphics cards will get better air flow and run a little cooler. Also improving the cables near the cards will further increase airflow.
