#1 Cant update GTX 1070 in Q/A Help

So I recently bought the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0, the one that has temperature problems. They recently released a a new BIOS update and now I dont know how to do it. I followed the steps in their guide but once I press "y" to update the screen just goes black for like 5 seconds and then it goes back to normal and nothing happens. I dont know how to update the bios and need help please.

Mine is the 08G-P4-6276-KR - EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW ACX 3.0 (the one in the bottom) and the info regarding the bios update is here http://www.evga.com/thermalmod/default.asp#status.

It also says "For Dual BIOS cards, card must be set to BIOS that is being flashed", how do I know if my card is a dual BIOS card and how do I flash it (never done it before nor do I know what it means).

TIA!

#5 Kingstone or Logitech? in Q/A Help

Anymore opinions? Black friday is coming to an end soon and I gotta make my decision, I'm leaning more towards the Kingstone.

I appreciate any opinion!

#1 Kingstone or Logitech? in Q/A Help

Since it's Black Friday I thought I would buy a new headset and I went through many options but finally came down to these 2 headsets but I cant decide which one to get, just looking for a good gaming headset with good mic and 7.1 sound system.

Which one of these two are better, the Kingstone HyperX Cloud 2(64$) or the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum(150$)?

Also are there perhaps any other headsets out there just as good or better than these 2 that are cheaper?

Theoretically you should get 30% more fps. The problem is that my data is based on actual quadcores and the Q9550 is just 2 dualcores bolted onto one package so things might get weird. I'd expect it to be less than 30%.
Overclocking would be better if you can do that because depending on cooling, mobo and how much time you're willing to spend on it you can get a 30-50% overclock.

#1765
There was no wifi unexpectedly so the "7:00 on the road build" didn't happen.

Also I should not find "Datorminnen" as funny as I do.
Skrivhastighet is a close second.

CPU: i7-6700
Mobo: B150M Bazooka

SSD: 850 Evo 250GB
HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda
Case: Cooler Master N200
PSU: Corsair CX450M
ODD: Lite-On iHas 124
Always including shipping that was 7495 SEK.

Now assuming 1200 for Windows 10 and 4400 for a GTX 1070 we'd be at 13100 SEK.
I don't think I can make the i7 happen.

#1766
I was willing to hazard a guess, Turkish Lira or Syrian Pound seemed unlikely enough.

Rough idea, assuming you're fine with just 250GB for now:

Yes, wireless without a wireless adapter is quite difficult so I'd recommend you get one.
I need more information though, what does your router support? No point in paying for an ac adapter if you're stuck on g.

The build tomorrow, I'm done for today.

Thanks a lot, which one of the 1070s would you recommend me to get? There are like 8 models to choose from and I dont know which one I should pick. I guess I'm kinda forced to expand my budget a bit then if I want that i7 I supose. Also does a cooler come with the i7 or would I be without one if I dont buy one separetly?

EDIT: Do you think the motherboard you mentioned is really trustable to work properly without any malfunctions? Considering it has no recensions or anything. Also do you know how many SATA cables will come with it?

Change of plans, I'll do it tomorrow morning. Official took about an hour more of my time than I expected and I'd rather do this properly than rush it.
rezgarOk I have no idea what those keyboards are that you mentioned, kind of lost on how to proceed on that lol. I can't really do more than write the model names. If you already knew all keyboards in existence you wouldn't need my help, right?

#1762rezgarOh and also, could you recommend me a good keyboard for gaming (red switches)unfyou should read up on which switches would suit you best though, as there are several different color ones (mx red for example)

Yeah I'm sorry kinda dumb, realized later they were just models with cherry switches. Thx for the recommendation.

I want to do this thoroughly and actually compare prices, but that takes time and will have to wait until tomorrow.
At first glance I'd say the 212 Evo is unnecessary and a CX450M would also be sufficient. Rest looks good.

Entry level keyboard with Cherry MX Red would be the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire Rapid. Or TK instead of Rapid if you want a backlit one. Or XT if you want a numpad.

Ok I have no idea what those keyboards are that you mentioned, kind of lost on how to proceed on that lol.

Also checked, the GPU I have in my list can not be purchased in any swedish stores so I have to get a different but similar one (dont know which one). But include an i7 core in your list please, wanna get one. My budget is still around 11 000 SEK for the PC ALONE. The BenQ monitor is a different budget. I just dont know how much to put into a good keyboard and a good set of speakers.

You can get >100 fps on max settings with a 150$ GPU in those.

WoT is also one of the few games with worse multithreading than TF2. Because it doesn't have any. At all.

Assuming you're talking about the new Star Wars Battlefront, that and Overwatch are actually not too demanding either. It's not easy but with e.g. a GTX 1080 getting >120 fps actually isn't a problem on 1080p even with maxed out settings.

Anyway, Swedish prices would be a bit too much work for now, but something along these lines is the goal:

Worst case you get a 1070, which should still be more than enough.
Alright that looks great thank you, just wondering though what if I wanted to start streaming, making videos etc. Wouldn't I need an i7 core then? If so, how much more $$ would I need to add to my current budget to replace the i5 with a good i7 instead and keeping everything else?
SetsulYou wouldn't need it, it just would actually help. If you're not streaming you wouldn't notice a difference.
Difference would be about 100$.

The thing is though I'm not sure if the 1080 is going to happen with Swedish prices. Since the 1070 is 200$ cheaper if we have to drop down to that the i7 might fit within the budget anyway.

Ok so it's time for me to build my PC, will probably be building it this week. And yeah I think I will drop down to the 1070 because it's 200$ cheaper and add an i7 core instead, havent looked at the swedish prices tho. My friend and I came up with this as my final PC build http://pcpartpicker.com/list/bPC6BP, what are your thoughts on it?

Also could you be bothered to do that list of yours for me in swedish prices now? prisjakt.se is the site you use to compare swedish store's items to eachother.

Oh and also, could you recommend me a good keyboard for gaming (red switches) and good speakers? I have no idea what to get or how much money to spend on them. I just want good ones at a reasonable price.

SetsulYes, TF2 is a different story.
Though I'm not sure which "graphic heavy sci fi games" you mean exactly.

Well games like Star wars, Everspace and other GPU heavy games like overwatch, world of warships and world of tanks. Forgot to mention I play those as well, esp world of warships.

SetsulYeah, obviously shouldn't be a problem on medium, just maxed out it's a bit difficult.

Just to be clear, we're not talking about tf2 here right? About the graphic heavy sci fi games? I play tf2 on max frame config anyways.

Well it depends whether you get more than 120 fps or less, which mostly depends on how high you turn the settings up.
Generally for fast paced games Lightboost, for slower games or if you want it to look as pretty as possible without stuttering G-/FreeSync.

I'll try to post a preliminary partlist this weekend.

Uh I'm hoping I can get 120+ FPS in at least med settings or something in most games considering I'm dumping quite a sum of money into building it ._.

#1715 PC Build Thread in Hardware
Setsul#1712
They are not settings, they are features.
It depends on what's most important to you.
Basically:
- IPS = better colours, but more expensive. Preferred for photo/video editing or simply watching movies.
- Lightboost/ULMB/Strobing = lower motion blur, basically going from 120 Hz to 120 Hz with strobing looks like going from 60 Hz to 120 Hz. Good for fast fps games, but only if you can actually get >120 fps reliably (same as normal 120/144 Hz).
- G-Sync/FreeSync = Syncs fps and refresh rate so you don't get the horrible stuttering, screen tearing and other problems you'd get if your fps drop below the refresh rate. Great if expect to not be able to get 120/144 fps at all times.

While some monitors offer both Strobing and G-/FreeSync you can't use them at the same time. Well the XL2730Z can but it's 500$, 27", 1440p so not exactly what you wanted.

About the i7: It really won't do anything unless you're going to stream, keep that in mind. And because you'll have to get a cheaper GPU you'll probably get lower fps with it.

Same as always, I can make a rough sketch now, but I'd rather wait for the actual prices in the week that you'll actually be buying it.

#1713
That's still a long way off. There's not much point in doing a partlist 2 months in advance, especially if you're trying to take advantage of deals that I can't know about yet. I'd have to change most of the partlist again.

Post here again a week or so before Cyber Monday at earliest, then I should be able to do a much better job than I would be to now.

And fuck the VG248QE, I have so many rants on that topic.
http://www.teamfortress.tv/post/649893/good-144-hz-monitors

What are you looking for?
Size?
Resolution?
IPS yes/no?
G-Sync/FreeSync yes/no?
Lightboost/Strobing yes/no?

Well then I guess Lightboost or something, since that seems to be the best feature for gaming, correct? I'll only be using it for gaming 95% of the time anyways.

Also alright, but if it's not too much trouble would you wanna give me a rough idea of what you'd have in mind now for a PC build and then just quickly go through it agian the week before I build it? It's alright though if you dont wanna waste time doing it twice tho, we could wait till then but I'd appreciate it a lot.

SEK are fine, I always try to use the shops that it'll actually be bought from to get the most accurate prices.

Ok, quick explanation why overclocking exists. You know that there's CPUs which are identical except for clockrates. That's because not every chip can handle the highest clockrates. However that also means if the fastet CPU Intel sells runs at 4.0 GHz then maybe only 20% actually max out at 4.0 GHz. Another 20% each could do 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 respectively. So people try and run their CPUs at that speed, see if it crashes and if not, hey free performance.
The other thing is at a certain frequency and voltage a CPU will consume a certain amount of power. Most of the time if you want higher frequencies you need higher voltages as well and power consumption goes through the roof. Since Intel wants to sell the CPU with 95W that's useless to them. But if you don't care about that, you can just get a better cooler, use 20% higher voltages to run it at 20% higher clockrates. Sure it might use 160W, but if you don't care it's almost free performance again.

Now some reasons why you shouldn't do it:
- It's a lot of effort. Basically you try a setting, run a stress test for 30-60 minutes, see if it crashes and then repeat with another setting. It can take days to get a good overclock.
- Intel didn't like it one bit so now they are locking all CPUs except the K versions which are identical to the non-K version of the same number, just overclockable, without a cooler and more expensive. They'll also only let you overclock with the most expensive chipset, so motherboards are more expensive too. Couple that with the fact that the CPUs don't overclock nearly as high as they used to and you're paying 100$ more for maybe 10-15% more performance.
- The most important reason is that you want to play on Ultra. That means you'll be limited by the GPU 99% of the time, not the CPU. So all that extra performance would just be money and effort for nothing. TF2 is a bit weird in that regard, but for new games it's GPU all the way.

Well that was a bit longer than expected, but trust me, it's the short version.

So that's why you shouldn't get an i7-6700K. The other thing is that the only difference between an i7 and an i5 is that the i7 can run 2 threads on each core basically at the same time. Now that's nice if you have a lot of threads that need to do work (streaming, rendering, that sort of stuff), but most games only use 3 or 4. So an i5 with it's 4 cores will get you exactly the same performance, at 2/3 of the price.

Now some more questions:
- When are you going to build it?
- Could you link me a shop or price comparision site?
For the monitor:
- Lightboost yes/no?
- G-Sync/FreeSync yes/no?
- IPS yes/no?
- Size? 24" or 27"?
I'm assuming you're fine with 1080p since barcaphillip mentioned that, but just to make sure:
- Resolution? 1080p or 1440p?

If you don't know what Lightboost, G-Sync, FreeSync or IPS are I can give you a short explanation or you can just google them.

Going to buy/build probably at the end of this month, when I recieve my paycheck. We use this site http://www.prisjakt.nu/ in sweden to compare various store items.

Yeah it's like you said, I have no idea what Gsync, freesync, lightboost and IPS are. What settings would you recomend? Looking for 24" and 1080 res. Not quite sure if whether I wanna get 1440p so that's why I'm just sticking with default 1080p.

Oh yeah also, could you make me 2 lists? 1 with the i5 core as you said and 1 with a good i7 core instead to see the differences and in case I wanna go with the i7 anyways.

I'd recommend not getting a 6700K and 1060.

Overclocking yes/no?
How many fps on Ultra 1080p in which games? Any GPU will run them, but 5 fps is probably not enough.

Hey I'm the friend barcaphilip was talking about in post 1707.

I dont know how to overclock and stuff so I guess that's a no, but I might do it if I learn how to do it and there are no major downsides to it? Dont really know how overclocking works.

Ok so I wanna build a PC as good as possible for gaming on a budget around 1200-1300$ for the PC, now mind I've never built one before and dont know much about PC specs and such. Planning on playing tf2, csgo, overwatch, some new graphic heavy space shooter games being released this year like Everspace and all those kind of sci fi games. How much FPS I wanna get? Well as much as possible for the mentioned games above :D

Could you help me out with picking parts? If it was up to you, which parts would you pick to build this PC, what would you recomend? I want a DVD player in case you'd wonder that.

Oh and also, what 144 hz monitor would you recomend? Within a 250-350$ budget for the monitor
