  1. Incredible add-on, still evolving. Excellent, thanks for the continued support of this iconic piece of software!
  2. I'm very interested in seeing if the Vega FE 16 gb (of HBM2) would have an appreciable effect in a 64 bit fs platform, ie p3dv4. Is anyone else interested in seeing the results? Not sure what I could sell it on for afterwards, but I could pick one up for significantly below retail if the community is interested in seeing the results.
  3. I've been really looking forward to the Jetstream again, but nothing can compare to the 747-8. Can't wait, day one buy!
  4. FSX-MS

    Oh how lovely a P210 would be from A2A. Even better, the Allison turbine conversion! Dreams...
  5. Problem with activation servers as of 15 mins ago, might not be a sure thing just yet.
  6. Awesome, a fair price for a phenomenal product. Thanks to all involved for bringing the dash back!
  7. And a solid silver IHS, price tag is over double retail! But for those with money to burn.... I bet they do sell them tho. The overclocking ability of the 8700k is so far turning out quite good, with many early review samples going over 5 GHz. First thing I'm doing with mine- delliding and applying liquid metal. A 20c drop on my skylake and I was sold.
  8. Also, the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming series are looking absolutely beautiful. The UEFI bios makes things easy from what if been following.
  9. Agreed, I'm going to give the 8700k a go. At least, when De8auer has s delid tool made up! I'm still amazed that the 6700k dropped over 20c at stress load with conductonaut compound under the lid.
  10. Not yet, but I've gone with the Asus Rog Hero series for my last two builds.
  11. No problem, I'll be doing a platform upgrade to an 8700k if the initial reports are promising as well!
  12. No, that's a matter of personal preference. I have had good luck with my H115 AIO (and delliding, 22c drop, no joke!) but there are plenty of capable air coolers that will handle a modest overclock.
  13. Binned just means hand-picked for better overclocks. And the MSRP on the 8700k is supposed to be $359 USD, so not that hefty of a premium. Personally since seeing how all 8 of my 6700k's threads are at 65% or higher with almost full right sliders, I'm quite keen to see how those 6c/12t 8700k's do in p3dv4!
  14. The 7740k is nothing more than a binned 7700k on an LGA 2066 socket sized pcb. It's also got a slightly higher tdp. This means you pay for an hedt Mobo but can't utilize all of the hedt features such as more pci express lanes and quad channel memory. If a hexa-core is your thing, the i7-8700k is releasing next week and already looks quite compelling. Supposed to be a monster overclocker, but time will tell. Sorry to introduce more variables into your choice!
  15. Perhaps with enough public interest they will decide to bring back that old-tech GNS. I'm quite looking forward to the j41 in v4, and I'm sure it will still be a winner with the gtn. I just can't help wishing it still had that FMS! I really enjoyed it! Oh well, first world problems.
