    FS: Xeon-D, DDR4, Alphacool Nexxos Radiators, EK Reservoir Pump

    You're exactly right that surface area is king when it comes to radiators. The only exception would be if the fin density and/or thickness became too much of a restriction for airflow of your fans, but that's not an issue in most cases. The rad you linked is a 240mm rad ( 2 x 120mm) . I've got...

    FS: Xeon-D, DDR4, Alphacool Nexxos Radiators, EK Reservoir Pump

    This would be great for developer workstations. Cutting build times for large projects pays off quickly. Previously, getting anywhere near 64 cores required expensive multi-socket solutions that were usually shared among developers. Having a single-socket solution puts this in reach of giving...

    Best High PPI Displays

    The LG Ultrafine 5K is an excellent monitor if you have a Thunderbolt 3 source. It's my top choice for image quality. Really outstanding to use with a Mac. I switched to the LG Ultrawide 5K2K monitor. The PPI is lower than the 5K Ultrafine, but it's only really noticeable when you have them...
