I see a lot off ppl talk about dellidding their i7-8700k like its as easy as turning their monitor on. Is it really that simple?

Did you use the paste that came with the Noctua cooler?

Damn, you hit 5ghz with the Air cooler? Thinking of getting the Noctua DH15 and was hoping I could hit 5ghz with that.

How did you manage 5ghz with that cooler? What are voltages?

I can barely get my 1700x to run 3.8ghz stable with Ram @3200mhz so you got yourself a nice chip. What voltages are you running at?

I don't think you'll regret either one honestly the Taichi is agreat board and the Aorus looks great too. Asrock makes great boards all around and the BIOS updates improve so you'll be safe choosing either one in my opinion.

I haven't noticed any static noise myself, but using the H440 case its pretty quiet and I'm not sure how loud this static is you're hearing on your end. But no I haven't heard any kind of weird static coming from the MB since I built it.

I can tell you that the Taichi has been great aside from a pretty slow boot time(15-18 seconds) but other than that Overclocking has been a breeze. Don't have any input on the Aorus because I've never used one, but I would try and find some reviews online first and make sure you get memory that is supported or Samsung B die.

Okay, should I revert all overclocks to CPU and memory before flashing?

Which version did you upgrade from? I'm on 2.3 right now, worth upgrading? Also have to revert all overclocks before flashing correct?

Thanks! Yes so far I like it a lot, OC is easy and simple to use.

Yes I absolutely did. The card is huge and actually kind of goes under the little wall the HDD trays are mounted to. I took out 2 to be safe, but you could probably just take 1 out and manage your cables.

No the trims you actually have to buy separately. But it was like $6 for a pack of two so not too bad.

Yes I did. As well as the white trims

I posted a few pics of my firestrike and timespy scores. Any more recommendations for benchmarking?

Thank you and yes I was dead set on the 7700K but for the reasons you mentioned is why I went with the Ryzen. That's what I was thinking as well though, that if this series of Ryzen CPUs weren't top notch then I could always upgrade to Zen 2 when its released if they improve on a lot.

I was close to getting the Hue+ but decided I didn't really need it. The little magnetic strip did the job.

Its just an RGB magnetic strip I bought off amazon Here I'm just using the white default LED because it goes with the color scheme more.

Cursed! I like the little touch the blue adds actually.

Thanks! Didn't want to go too overboard with flashy RGB but i thought it could use a little pop.
