    3090 extra 8pin power help (ghetto rig)

    This, plus you would want all 3 of those wires coming straight from the PSU, when in this case they're likely going to originate from a single wire, and PCI-E power wires are usually thicker than what you'd find going to a molex connector, to cope with the extra current that the device would be...

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    My point is that it's still the cheapest option, even if you have to get more than one.

    RISC-V, the Linux of the chip world, is starting to produce technological breakthroughs

    Clock speed is largely irrelevant without taking IPC and architectural considerations into account, but I guess the marketing departments would have you think otherwise :).

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    I'm with TheSlySyl , for a few reasons. Getting to pick and choose what services you want is nice, they're not THAT expensive unto themselves.

    Everyone that snapped up cheap 2080 Ti's during that brief fire sale time period made out like a bandit :)

    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    I'm not here to debate what state the virus is in, but I'm happily folding away on the main rig and the media center.

    EK has a new fan. It's fast, expensive, really thick and...

    I'm not sure who these are supposed to market to, most PC enthusiasts don't want to live in a server closet or datacenter. I used to use some similarly profiled Panaflo fans back in the day, and even at the lowest possible RPM they were somewhat obnoxious due to motor humming. Even if their PWM...

    Micro Center 11/11 sale!

    3900X is also brand new. They *usually* only discount old stock or high volume stuff that they expect to move a ton of anyway.
