SO sorry I missed your comment. The latest Strix Bios is 1401 and can be found here-
I am curious now too. :)
Very nice build, love you GPU choice. I did a 6800k build this year but I compromised on the GPU, and a 1080 is definitely on the wish list.
That's good, start fresh again and see how the experience goes. Let me know how everything works out and if I can help in anyway let me know. Cheers
I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you have made some progress. I would start at a bios update, you can use the bios flashback on the strix x99 board.
I've read of some people experiences problems with the x99 strix, but I have had good luck so far. The 6800k isn't a huge overclocker, but I have settled with a 4.2 @ 1.35 volts. Running the gtx970 with a slight overclock. Keeping the cpu and board cool with the h110gt, and five fans in the case. Been running for just over three months on the board.
In which way did the board kill your CPU if you do not mind me asking. What CPU and overclock were you running/cooling/graphics card/any pcie nvme or m.2's ?
It does run smooth, it has been nice. I found a comfortable stable oc @ 4.3 which isn't fantastic, but I am happy with it. I am running quad channel memory in xmp and it has also been stable, reading all 32 gb. Happy overall, looking forward to trying a thunderbolt expansion card, upgrading my video card, adding another 32 gb of ram, and using that u.2 slot with a nvme ssd.
Yes, love it so far, its a beast of board.
Happy to see another Strix board as well with a 6800K, good choices! :) Nice job on the build.
I've had mine running for over 6 weeks and it has been running great so far as well. Over clocks easy, although I have not pushed it hard yet. I also picked up my board from a local micro centre (Canada Computers) Nice board with tons of features. Saving up for nvme drive, a m.2 and trying to fill the eight dimm slots.
I am happy with my sub par overclock so far. The laptop I was using was an older I7 quad core, so this 6800k blows it away. I will gradually play with it overtime but for now 4.1 is good for me.
Built before the release of the 1060. I would like to put a 1070 in the near future. The 970 was just to get me running, priced matched it at best buy for just over 300 CAD.
Thank you. I have to do some pictures with the board led's. Yes, the 750d was slightly overkill, but in the future I would like to do a custom water loop to the cpu and gpu (with the 1070), with a dual water pump in the top right hand corner, remover the front top bay, and a second rad in the front. That should help fill it out. Remove the bottom tray and place a fan beside the PSU. And yes, some custom cables would be nice, looking at a set from cablemod. Still work to do, but its up and running, which makes me happy.
