cheers, looks good also,  now I need to decide :)
EBay sale coming up https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/355112 have a look around at some of the ebay stores mentioned in the comments section and then see if they get discounted. Only thing is some of the sellers jack the prices a bit when these sales are on, but usually I've found that stuff still ends up a bit cheaper than stores like pccasegear.

New nvidia driver 390.65 January 9th
Should I go for it. I am on 388.43 because usually the latest drivers give me a bit of mess, so I try to stay on stable but slightly older drivers. I'll do what you say, if you say, though ;)
I've only tried a few games and it seems good, but I haven't tried AC with it yet
My first impression is that it is a tiny tiny bit worse...

EDIT: ...or just exactly the same.
I was hoping there might some improvement in it for this bleeding edge stuff like vr, oh well

I also notice cpuz says voltage a bit lower than what bios is set to, like when set to 1.350 in bios it reads 1.320 in cpuz

Currently testing 4.4 with 1.300 in bios which says 1.284 in cpuz with temps max at 83 and llc on high

How long is long enough on prime95 ? been 45 mins with the lower voltage so far, I think changing the llc to high has helped the most
That is normal for some motherboards, particularly one's that don't have as granular llc and other settings. Some people say 5 hrs some say over night, but I am pretty sure if prime is going crash or drop a worker it'll do it within an hour or so. Real world usage is going to be the main test anyway, or do the h264 test for an hour since it's probably a bit closer to real world usage and realistic temperatures.

Is your USB system overloaded? Is you Power Supply large enough? Have you changed the case? ;D (only joking)
LOL, what about that "disable full screen optimization" Phil mentioned in the Windows thread

I did prime95 for an hour at 4.4 with 1,350v and llc on high but got a little warm at 88 degrees
Prime will run hot and the load fluctuates a bit, so you might get a high maximum but the average will be lower, games won't be that hard on it temp wise.

When I get back from my holiday we'll stick my 1080ti in your rig and that way you can see if it's worth spending the money on one. I'm running out of ideas otherwise lol

I let memtest go on for almost 3 hours. Did almost 2 complete passes. 0 errors. I would be satisfied, unless you tell me it should run for longer.
Not sure why, maybe it's faster but, With an eight thread cpu you need to open eight instances of the memtest app, total value of ram tested needs to be I think 75%, so 75% of total ram divided by eight is the value you put into each instance (this might be over doing it, I just remember reading it somewhere). Hci website says testing to 100% will catch all errors and testing to 400% will catch any intermittent failures. Sounds like you're good anyways

I watched the video and tried what he did by doing just the multiplier at 44 and nothing else which according to cpuz was running at1.28V and got to 64 degrees. I got about 15 mins of prime95 before it blue screened
64c is good and gives you extra headroom for more voltage. My chip is below average, it needs quite a bit of voltage, hopefully yours is better. Start with a manual voltage of 1.375 and multiplier of 43 and increase one step at a time until it crashes then back off one, keep ram at default 2133 at first only and only apply xmp after you've found what your cpu can do. Like me you might need extra voltage on vccio (cpu memory controller) and vccsa (system agent) keep those at a max of 1.2v. See how that goes, if you find a multiplier stable with manual voltage first, then you can try the dynamic voltage with the same multiplier. Have you got the latest bios version from gigabyte a lot of early Z170 bios' were buggy. My vcore is 1.4v but is actually about 1.44v because of the higher llc I'm using, my vccio and vccsa voltage are 1.25v. I've bumped up ram voltage to 1.39v so I can clock it higher than xmp.

so would a good start be 4.5@1.300 with standard llc do you think ?
I tried this with standard and high llc and went up to 1.35v   , still blue screens and games wont launch or if they do they blue screen after 1 min max. the blue screen is always clock watchdog timeout.
I came across this thread, which decides this is not a good board for overclocks and requires a slightly different approach. Post 5 is the interesting one.  I have not tried it yet as I am not sure its worth the bother. I can get to 4.3 ghz easy but any higher it blue screens, and .3 does not make much difference , I really just think I lost the cpu lottery

That post you mentioned sounds like it'd help you a bit for that motherboard. You can try manual/fixed voltage first to see where your cpu stands then dial in the dynamic voltage. Low voltage will most likely be the cause of the bsod. Try to keep around 1.4v maximum so long as the cooling can cope, around 80c max is ok. The asus board is pretty good, heaps of settings, but still a pain to work out at first. Not without problems though, different bios versions had different bugs or broken things. This guy uses a gigabyte board

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: S12 R2 - Goodwood Circuit - 11/01/2018
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:01:50 PM »
It's hard doing 7 night shifts then travelling all day with out much sleep, then trying to control this monster of car. Put in some good laps for pole, almost broke 1.23 but just not consistent enough. R1 excellent start from pole...restart...average start from pole...restart...then brain fart and jump the lights, drive through penalty lol. Worked up a major sweat, couldn't really keep it together but gained a few spots back. R2 started mid pack gained a few spots with some close racing and then hunted imperious and then mael, but couldn't get close enough. Good fun racing with you all, see on track in a fortnight
