    Now that is actually quite stunning. Having it be a little taller to offset the lack of adhesive is a stroke of genius. No more need of lapping and this would solve the issues with the monoblock by...

    The original board works fine with my aura, at least the effects I use. I'm really unsure about this board myself. The aesthetics are nice, I like the matte black heat shield. I'm with you however...

    Even with XMP turned on, you may have to raise the voltage of the DRAM in BIOS. If it was set to 1.25, you may have to boot both channels to 1.35v or whatever is the norm for your sticks. You may...

    Previous to the x299 platform, I would agree generally with the statement. As we saw with the x299 platforms, many motherboard manufacturers had to change the VRM heatsinks up quite a bit from the...

    I applaud your tenacity. I stopped using VROC as it just doesn't seem worth the extra hassle for the limited performance you get. I must admit since the Spectre/Meltdown patch, I was considering...
