    Just ordered a barebones P870DM3 for $1500 shipped with a single GTX1080. Should arrive today and I can't wait to get my hands on it. While it's the old Z170 model I think it was a steal at that price. Any tips or things I should know about it? Also where can I order a 4k or 1440p replacement lcd? Thanks!

    It's the base with no CPU, RAM, or storage but I already have an i5 7600k and 16gb ddr4 2400 (sodimm of course). It has the FHD screen and GTX 1080. I ordered it from Eluktronics and right now they are also giving everyone who orders through Amazon Pay a $100 gift card. Also going to be loading in a 512gb NVME ssd and 2tb of spin storage.

    So the FHD 60hz screen uses a different connector so you will need a cable too to upgrade to beyond that.

    Would you happen to have a link to the proper cable for the upgrade? Thanks in advance.

    I have the same barebones unit and it already has the Kabylake bios/EC so you're good to go with the 7600K. I have the 6700K and temps never go above 77C CPU/82 GPU w/Gelid Extreme.

    Stock clocks on both, -125 voltage on CPU. Fans are near silent on automatic and haven't used overclock profile yet.

    Does anyone know if there is a newer stock vbios than 2016?
