    In an german Forum was Report that GB Brix has a heating Problem as well as the Haswell CPU.

    EDIT: But it's good to know that after all the time Intel has fixed their crappy refresh rate handling.

    I just got a 4770s and a asus sabertooth z87 mobo... And somewhere between that and going from windows 7 -> 8, something is messed up... I couldnt play video files or watch tv, but i've found out that messing with renders/codecs on audio and video sort of works... grrr will try to narrow it down before i post an actual bug report ;)[DOUBLEPOST=1370374088][/DOUBLEPOST]And also the dynamic refresh rate changer seems to fuck shit up on my new config ;)

    I had the same issue, you need to play a file first with win 8's video app. It probably needs to be updated too, then u need to play a video again in the video app. Kinda annoying, but that's what u gotta do.

    I also heard anecdotal reports that they run quite hot, so are harder to overclock without them getting toasty.
    Is faster quicksync give faster transcoding of video for streaming?

    Did you see:
    Using a GFX card instead of the onboard kinda kills the power consumption pro of the system. :)
