With that particular gpu, make sure that you wont need to get a waterblock down the track as you cant seem to get one for this evga gpu (i couldn’t find one)
EVGA has a block for that - https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=400-HC-5599-B1 as well as an AIO unit https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=400-HY-5598-B1
Or the GPU with AIO https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=11G-P4-6598-KR
Good find, I saw that you could get AIO’s but didn’t see that waterblock. The other cards that are a little cheaper than others (at least here in Australia) are the Galax GTX1080ti/1080 EXOC. A bitcoin miner I was speaking to preferred these to Gigabyte GTX1080ti Gaming OC’s as he found the Galax cards run a bit cooler, quieter and have a metal backplate.
Just looking to upgrade my GTX 970, and stumbled across the Zotact GTX 1080 Ti Mini on the Nvidia website. Is there any difference between this and a normal 1080 TI?
Its a 1080ti so just as capable (without overclocking), there are some reviews out there. Just going to be a bit hotter/noisier due to having a smaller surface area for cooling.
I’ve got zotac 1080ti mini, in mini-atx case: works perfectly and the performance is really good. As I understand there’s no performance difference compared to standard 1080ti
Hello, what was you experience with only 6GB of GPU memory?
I’m pretty new to this, but what’s the difference between the gigabyte video card on your list and the 1070ti from nvidia’s website/ why is it almost $400 more?
I would make following trade-off:
instead of DDR-3000, buy DDR-2400, you save 200usd
instead of 1070Ti, buy 1080Ti, pay 200usd more
total sum remains the same.
sounds like a good trade off.
this is what im thinking about getting. not sure if it would be a somewhat decent setup or not
i was also wondering if an i3 or older i5 like an i5-650 work with this setup? theres some for $50 on newegg, but that also seems sketchy. any recommendations?
What kind of PSU did you have exactly, and what GPU?
I’d really like to hear your opinions about my build:
PSU that didn’t work well: Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply
PSU that works fine: Cooler Master V1000 - Fully Modular 1000W 80 PLUS Gold PSU with Silencio Silent 135mm fan (6th Generation Skylake Ready)
I think it was not a matter of raw power. It just didn’t deliver sufficient amperage on the PCIe rails.
CX series is the entry level of corsair. They don’t build their power supplies. The high-end product are built by Seasonic, Fortron, SuperFlower, etc.
The low-end series are built by way less renown manfacturers, with crappy components.
With V1000 you bought one of the best kilowatt on the market (but a Corsair RM/AX would have been just fine).
Does anyone have thoughts about this:
$800 for a refurbished HP Z420 Workstation with
Intel Xeon Quad Core E5-1620 3.6GHz
16GB DDR3 ECC memory
128GB solid state drive
1TB 7200RPM hard drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Hey guys. I built my own rig and it runs (lights and fans) but I cannot get it to send the image to my monitor. The motherboard (Asus Prime x299’Deluxe) gets stuck in “PCI host bridge initialization”. Does someone have any suggestions?
May you take a pic of the monitor as it happens?
Hey, sorry for the wait but I could finally make it work ! I had a rookie mistake, put my RAM on the wrong slot and it was not reading it.
Thanks for the help!
