5 out of 5 eggs The i7-5775c is as cold as ice, but doesn't perform better. 06/24/2016

This review is from: Intel Core i7-5775C Broadwell Quad-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1150 65W BX80658I75775C Desktop Processor

Pros: x

Cons: y

Other Thoughts: At first, my "ASUS GRYPHON Z97" wouldn't boot with my i7-5775c in place.
Yet, when my i7-4790s was in place, everything worked fine.

I thought updating to the latest BIOS would be enough; it wasn't.
I thought the chip was bad; it wasn't.

The solution:

Rename "GRYPHON-Z97-ASUS-2801.CAP" (the latest BIOS) to "Z97GP.CAP".
Put it in the root folder of a USB stick ( NTFS formatted ),
in the special USB port.

ShutDown. Remove the i7-4790s. Put in the i7-5775c.
Press the "BIOS FLASH" button for 3 seconds.
Wait for it to stop blinking ( the USB stick blinks too ).

"CoreTemp" says my OverClocked i7-5775c is 27°C ( 80°F ), drawing 4 Watts;
my i7-4790s was 37°C ( 99°F ), drawing 16 Watts. I use the provided fan.
It's as cold as ice but, for me, it doesn't perform any better than my i7-4790s.

I'm running Win10 on a 3840 x 2160 IPS monitor.
I was hoping for improved performance when playing 4096x2160, 60 fps videos;
sadly, it didn't happen ( but it's a hair better ).

By the way, Zoom Player 12.1, the latest beta,
was a _huge_ upgrade for me.

Previously, my HighContrast Theme (Win10) broke EVR
( "Enhanced Video Renderer", MicroSoft's latest, post VMR9 ).
FullScreen videos, in Windows Mode ( NonExclusive ), showed tearing,
-- and my only alternative, VMR9, couldn't do 4096x2160, 60 fps !

After upgrading to zPlayer 12.1, I had to turn off "Smart Play";
i.e. let MicroSoft decide what filters/decoders to use.
With that, 4096x2160, 60 fps videos play fine ( but seeking is slow ).

5 out of 5 eggs Now, 60Hz works in Portrait mode, 2160 x 3840. 04/16/2015

This review is from: Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q Black 23.8" 6ms HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 4K 50 ~ 300 cd/m2 2,000,000:1

Pros: Now, 60Hz works in Portrait mode, 2160 x 3840.
Now, power·cycling the monitor causes no problems.

I updated my graphics driver
( Intel Core i7-4790s, Intel HD Graphics 4600 )
using the "Device Manager", Windows 8.

Latest update: March 3rd, 2015 ( this year ).

The "DisplayPort v1.2" cable that came with the monitor
was broken; so I bought a new, much better one.

Cons: No Cons.

Other Thoughts: IPS colors rock!

NVIDIA® Quadro® K600 VCQK600-PB 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Powerful/Cheap 4K/UHD, only 40 watts. 03/11/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA® Quadro® K600 VCQK600-PB 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: Powerful/Cheap 4K/UHD, only 40 watts.

Cons: More speed at less cost would be nice, obviously.

I had to switch to the "Zoom Player Free"
video player because KMplayer failed
to properly utilize this card.

It took me awhile to figure that out.

Other Thoughts: Moderator, please delete my previous review,
since "user error" the only problem,
not the video card.
