Was this the motherboard burnout you mentioned to me a while ago?
CPU and mobo burned out, so it was over $1k to fix in total. There goes my hopes for a graphics card upgrade this year.
I assume they weren't under warranty since it cost you that much. What did you replace them with?
Replaced the mobo with another Rampage V, cpu was replaced with a 6850k, replaced the cooler with a corsair h100i v2. The Noctua cooler I got to test stuff was fine, but I needed needed access to that first PCIe x16 slot that it covers because of it's size.
What games? Pick anything good up during the BF deals?
Whoa, what CPU and mobo cost you over $1K to replace? Or did you replace them with a newer platform?
I was playing dota2 and civ5. Played some civ6, confirmed I still hate it and moved on.
I started with the x99 platform, and stuck with it. I run some other things on this computer via VMs, so the extra threads are useful. I will say that the slower clock speed versus my old 4790k from a couple years ago actually caused a minor decrease in performance for games, but not enough for me to get upset about
