Test Setup

We've updated a lot of our hardware to match recent testing with other platforms since we looked at Intel's mainstream Kaby Lake CPUs earlier this year. We now use a GeForce GTX 1080 as our test GPU along with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RGB 3,000MHz RAM and a Fractal Design Celcius 24 AIO liquid cooler.

  • Motherboard MSI Z370 Godlike Gaming 
  • Memory 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB 3,000MHz DDR4 
  • GPU Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Edition 
  • PSU Corsair RM850i 
  • SSD Samsung SSD 850 Pro 256GB (SATA 6Gbps speed tests); Samsung 960 Evo 500GB (M.2 speed tests) 
  • CPU cooler Fractal Design Celsius 240 
  • Operating system Windows 10 64-bit
