Willing to bet its driver issues. I have same CPU. A few games ran 'bad' when I upgraded to RTX2080Ti. I also used MSi afterburner instead of X1. I suggest re-installing drivers at clean slate. Hope this helps.

As far as I know the F means the CPU does not have an integrated GPU for intel CPUs. Meaning if you want to use this, you’ll need a dedicated GPU.

to date, it's probably cutting the 24-pin and cpu 8-pin shorter to free wire clutter on my most recent build. I tried to sleeve each wire individually but ultimately failed. lul

I really like HyperX. Their design was really subtle with a hint of 'gamer' and not over the top.

I find that I didn't use it that much since I got a Macbook Pro anyway.

I has been long since but at the time, I found it to be buggy. Audio would not work sometimes. Features like facetime or iMessage didn't work for me either. Another thing was updating the Mac OS. On a Mac, you would just click update. It's not so simple on a hackintosh from my understanding. Maybe it was my fault? I didn't look for much solution since the Mac OS was just for fun. Getting it boot on a Windows based system was a milestone in itself for me, as well as this build. :)

But I'm sure there are solutions to every quirks that come with hackintosh. It's up to you if it's worth the time.

definitely an overkill for the current set up. (i am using a 550w on 4790k + msi gtx970) if you are planning on an sli set up, it's plenty and you wouldn't need to change it if you later decide to have multiple gpu set up.

you might get away with slightly placing the fan higher up the heatsink to accommodate your ram.
