    Plenty of the guys in here go for 2x 8GB sticks @ newegg. 3600Mhz & up for b-die apparently. Unfortunately prices gone up like 25% recently.
    IMO only ... what's offered here in the pc shops is the budget rams. Majority out there will still think 2800Mhz is the fast stuff

    https://www.newegg.com/global/au/Pr...03954 601203955 601203956 601203957 601275375

    Cheap set towards bottom $502 x4 sticks. $27 shipping iirc

    Lawdy, memory has gone up in price even in the last month or two. This kit here (3200C14, b-die) was $550ish AUD last time I checked, glad I bought the non-RGB kit when I did.

    Installed my 8700k and Aorus Gaming 7 last night, will give it a little play tonight... Keen for darkbarstad's Aquacomp order to come in so I can pop the lid. :D

    My 4 x 8gb sticks of Corsair Vengeance CMU32GX4M4C3200C16B which are Samsung b-die went up over $200 on what I paid for them earlier this year.

    Thanks for the input.
    Yeah .... memory prices suck at the moment.
    Hence I will start with 2 sticks of 16GB and hopefully we might see some movement with Amazon arriving.

    I could not get Realbench stable at 1.350v with water cooling and delid. Temps are pretty good, maximum was 70 degrees after being flogged.

    Just put the MSI M5 gaming and 8700K into my case with custom water cooling. System seems a bit off. Programs are taking ages to load, in bios the actual CPU speed and Memory speed displayed keeps disappearing.

    Something not right. Had to give it away last night. Had to go away on a trip. Sigh.

    That Hwinfo screenshot was just to show that the voltage shown in cpu-z is correct and that it matches the vcore voltage reading in Hwinfo. It was not to show any temps.

    Here is Cinebench R15, at the same settings as my previous Cinebench score, with Hwinfo open, so you can see my cpu temps and vcore volts, while I was running it.

    My score is slightly lower, due to Hwinfo running at the same time. I do not have any Asus software installed, I set all my voltages in the bios, so the ridiculous sarcsatic comments about lowering voltages for screenshots is completely wrong, as is also all the other utter rubbish and "theories" trying to dispute my results. And you can bench the 8700K at 5ghz at less than 1.28 volts, that comment is also completely wrong.

    My cpu is real, and the posts trying to dispute it with ridiculous unicorn comments, are just laughable and all they do is highlight the jealousy or sour grapes that the person writing the comment has, due to their cpu not being able to perform the same as mine!

    Can you test it with more normal ambients please? Like 26-28 plus.

    Idle temps of 21degrees is quite low and hard to compare against. These repsond greatly to lower temps.

    Not disputing you have a good sample, would just like to see more normal testing without the assistance if cold air/water.

    I ran Cinebench the same as I normally run my pc everyday, with the aircon turned on and set to 22 degrees. My water temp is 23 degrees.

    Finally setup my 8700K and ROG Strix Z370-G.

    Looks like I have a decent chip. Batch L733C299

    1 hour AIDA64 passed at 5.1Ghz and 1.264V.

    I did have to delid it though. Upon opening it up I found that all the thermal compound was stuck to the roof of the heatsink, rather than on the die which explained why I was thermal throttling at 1.24V.

    Temps dropped to 78 degrees maxed out Core 0 and 74-76 on the other cores.

    Definitely an upgrade from my 6700K which couldn't get above 4.8Ghz with less than 1.35V.

    ^ This Fact 11 or Wraith 50 prove us wrong. Some benchmarks you cannot clock down as in HWbot. I for x1 could not give a flying fuck for leprechaun gold.

    Explain how your processor can beat 50x multi R15 1687. XPM no less ... overclockers pushing ram in link

    Unfortunately if he has the advantage of getting water temps down then it's a fair gain, like people with low outside temps from being away from the coast or in the high country.

    Maybe someone should make a case like the old vapochill cases but with built in air conditioning and cool air being pushed through the case.

    :)

    That's only part of it Aussie. Ambient gain of 10 deg won't really matter.
    Same dude comes back 3 years now & can beat every overclocker in this forum without trying or previous experience

    Fact 11 that's first incarnation

    Sorry if it's already been mentioned in this thread but anyone in Melbourne offering a delid service? I'd prefer not to ship it off.
