Good deal, considering that both, board and RAM seem to be top class.
Yes I am considering it-was just going ddr 4 before...
Not sure where to put this.. But i'm planning on doing either a 12th gen build with this mobo or wait for AM5..
But my question is, if i use a vertical mount gpu bracket etc, and plug the riser cable into one of the lower PCie slots, and use the top slot for a 1x card, will this limit/slow down the GPU?
not THAT gpu obviously though (hopefully 4xxx series)
literally says it on the specifications
3x PCIe x16 slots
PCI_E1 (from CPU)
Supports up to PCIe 5.0 x16
PCI_E3 & PCI_E4 (from Z690 chipset)
Supports up to PCIe 3.0 x4 & 3.0 x1
So the 2 lower PCI-E x16 slots runs at a Max speed of 3.0 x4 and 3.0 x1
and yes, if you wana run any half decent gpu in these lower slots, it will be a either a extremely bad to "wtf you you doing" bad limitation.
So I assume they're all like this?
What do you need to run on that first slot?
Some of the higher grade boards have faster 2nd and 3rd pci-e slots that won't fully choke a gpu
The HTC Vive wireless card
OR i'm going to have to get a mount to lift the GPU up so i can put the wireless card underneath the GPU
Is the actual wifi chip removable from the vive pci-e card under that heatsink? If it is, it should just be a m.2 key e chip, and you can replace the existing wifi cards on the board with that one.
I have absolutely no idea
a lot of these PCI-E wifi cards are basically adaptors for the M.2 cards to go into a PCI-E slot. From the pictures I've found online looks like the heatsink is just screwed on with a couple of screws. Try undoing it and see what's under.
Your other option is to use with a PCI-E x1 extension cable so you can use the onboard x1 slot and more that vive card to somewhere that doesn't get in the way of a future GPU.
This is what I was thinking too... but not sure how to mount something like that
Or does it just 'hang' from the card mount?
So far with my 12700K - It is performing as expected for my work pc.
I am still on Win 10 operating system and there doesn't seems to be any issues.
Do you guys think 12th gen is much lower voltage vcore than 11th gen?
I am used to doing R15 Cinebench basic tests for example
50x 1.2v 52x 1.3v 54x 1.4v that would be considered very good, all the way back to 7700K processors.
My 12th gen can pass 55x with 1.29v and the other 1.34v even harder benchmarks as well. Just not all of them of course.
Did I get lucky with store bought unicorns
No it’s Intel finally using a modern fab.
You mean like shrinking from 14nm?
I have not been following the tech side of it OJR. Hardly read a review of these parts in 10 years.
Then a tube video forget it Switched off in under 2 minutes.
Not much can hold my attention these days. Oh boobies
Rain predicted here next 3 days. Had some good pc parts arrive, not all unpacked yet.
If the nitrogen is delivered Sunday all is good in the world.
That then has naughty Shane indoors busting " the thing " scores
Sneak peak for you OJR.
But only single channel.. I assume
And I assume either DDR4 or DDR5 at the one time..
Not both at once
It was only a matter of time.
PCIe 5.0 as well.
