  1. FYI:

  3. Sure but they've moved ahead exponentially in other areas, biggest one being multi-core/multi-thread. The race for higher clock speeds was over 10yrs ago. What's sad are most developers are still living in the past by coding single threaded apps/games. That's where the innovation should be coming from now. Think about it... that's utilizing only 10% of the total horsepower of a 7900x. That's a lot of untapped power.
  4. Cool. Sounds like you've done some significant testing with this new chipset. So what makes this Coffee Lake chipset (assuming that's what you're talking about) not as flaky or half-arsed compared to others? Sorry which particular chipset are you using? I'd like to hear what you've observed so far testing it. Cheers.
  5. Upgrade complete! OC'd(HT turned off) and stable at 4.8Ghz @1.218v. Eventually I will delid it to reduce the heat when HT enabled.
  6. FSX-SE on Win10 Pro. I had nothing in relation to these files previously in my download folder. I have a NAS that store all my installation files. In this case I didn't even touch the NAS doing this install. BTW, on a side note, after upgrading my hardware, and installing the OS, FSX and PMDG, I have not experienced any CTD's when exiting the SIM as I had before. I will keep a lookout for this as I add more add-ons. Cheers.
  7. So I did the download again, full uninstall and re-install of the NGX and still no joy on it adding the HUD entry in the DLL.XML file. I tried twice. Cheers.
  8. I just noticed the same issue. Just did a complete rebuild of my FS PC (new hardware). Re-installed FSX-SE and the NGX and noticed a blank HUD. Sure enough, the DLL entry was not added to the dll.xml file. Thankfully I took a backup of the appdata_fsx folder before the rebuild so I still had the parameters. And, no, my dll.xml file is definitely not corrupt. Cheers.
  9. Perfect Keven! That's what I kind of thought but just wanted to confirm. Thanks, Todd.
  10. Greetings, I'm about to start the process of rebuilding my FS PC (new CPU/MB/RAM) and I was wondering if there was a way to save all my views/profiles. Then import them when I reinstall on the new rather than setting them all up from scratch again? Thanks, Todd.
  11. Greetings, I'm a previous customer and have been waiting for this version to release. Now I'm in the middle of a rebuild of my sim PC and not even close to installing this yet. How can I purchase this software without installing it and still get my "discount" as a previous customer? Thanks.
  12. The way I see it, the future is multi-core/multi-threaded. Just look at the recent months with the market being flooded by new multi-core(many-core) CPU's. It will only be a matter of time when software developers really start to take advantage of this architecture. LM have already stated in a recent interview that they are continually improving multi-threaded capability. LR are doing the same but XP is already around 90% GPU bound but they still take advantage of multi-core CPU architectures. I also use this PC for other tasks other than just FS. I'm an independent IT/IS consultant and this PC I use to run multiple VM's to test many different service architectures for clients. So having the multi-core and lots of RAM will help immensely. But there is a balance between # of cores and high frequency(ie heat). I believe this 7280x strikes that balance where I can OC this CPU decently (~4.6-4.8) for sim'ing and not generate too much heat. I'll delid if I have to. I do have a custom water loop which I've used on my 2600k, running it at 4.9Ghz for the last 5 years out of the almost 7yrs I've owned it. I'm just waiting for the delivery of the MB. I'll update this thread when i get everything up and running. I haven't moved to P3D v4 yet(still using FSX and XP10) but the intentions are there as soon as the dust settles with all the add-on upgrades and LM first minor update(v4.1). Windows 10 will also be another scary venture. Still using Win7. Fun times ahead!
  13. In 3 weeks time when Coffee Lake is shipping, something newer will be announced. Faster, shinier & cheaper and you'll have to wait another few months for it. Few more months go by and it starts to ship... Oh wait! They just announced the next one and it's only a few more months wait. Wow it's really shiny, fast and more bang for less bucks. Gotta wait for that one! ...and so on and so on.... Like I said, Tis the industry...
  14. Tis the industry... There's always something new around the corner and you'd be waiting indefinitely. I've been waiting for almost 7yrs. It was time to put the foot down and just do it.
  15. Finally going to pull the trigger on a new FS PC. I shouldn't say PC but more specifically, new CPU, MB & RAM. Everything else will remain. Been running on this very trust worthy highly overclocked i7 2600K Sandy Bridge since March 2011, over 6yrs old. I think it's time to move on. New Specs: INTEL® CORE™ I7-7820X (8 Cores/16 Threads) Up to 4.30 GHz ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX LGA 2066 G.SKILL Trident Z Series 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz F4-3200C15Q-32GTZSW It won't be cheap but I don't upgrade every 6mos to a year. In it for the long haul.
