    Anandtech and Gamers Nexus 11700k Reviews

    I meant more like why spend $500 on a board unless you really need the features on it. I've done the same stupid things myself but I luckily got over it. I've done some LN2 and TEC cooling and I've done some obscenely overstuffed builds that might have slightly justified the highest end boards...

    Anandtech and Gamers Nexus 11700k Reviews

    If you didn't have a VERY specific purpose then you wasted $500 for sure. WTF were you thinking exactly if you were going to be able to regret that kind of purchase?

    5800X Sanded Flat

    He claimed perfection actually and then gave no indication he achieved it or that it helped the CPU.

    5800X Sanded Flat

    Plenty of us get it. I assume I'm not the only one in here to lap a CPU and corresponding waterblock or similar into compliance but as has already been mentioned most coolers are machined to match the convex nature of most CPU lids these days and if you don't flatten both then you may well have...

    5800X Sanded Flat

    I don't think a blurry reflection shot and a screenshot hiding the individual core temps is going to make you any more enthusiastic supporters than your sleazy car salesman eBay ad did.

    5800X Sanded Flat

    I don't think you understand what it is we are mocking.

    What manufacturer suggested the retail price for that sanding job exactly?

    Need to rent/borrow a delidding tool for 7980XE

    I've got a RockItCool for LGA 2066 I don't think will be seeing any more use. If you want to pay shipping both ways or make me an offer you can have it.

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    You might as well risk it in stocks or give it straight to them instead of making them lose some in overhead in their charity schemes... it is going to the same people regardless.

    Forget monoblocks, EK just launched its first multiblock!

    Not much considering I have two EK nickel blocks that never saw anything other than distilled water and the plating flaked off so badly I eventually just left one in some vinegar for awhile to get the rest off. That being said, I've owned 3 EK monoblocks since that along with several GPU blocks...

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X in iMac Pro

    And if you have suction cups for pulling up floor panels the iMac comes apart in seconds with no screws.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X in iMac Pro

    This seems like a lot of complaining for an all-in-one device. I don't think suction cups on a glass front is any harder than another all-in-one 27" and it's certainly not any harder than your average Dell laptop disassembly which is basically what it is with a giant color-accurate* monitor...

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X in iMac Pro

    This is a silly comment as the 27" iMac was for a long time the best Apple bang for buck by FAR and honestly a hell of a deal especially refurb.

    Windows 10 is getting a modern Task Manager for your games.

    I think you confused huge upgrade with more bullshit.
