    Arctic MX-5 Thermal Compound Listed Ahead of Launch

    I just used MX-5 on a 5600X and a Scythe Fuma 2 in a Fractal Meshify 2 Compact. Idles at 31C and running Prime95 Small FFTs it reached 55.6C in a 73F/22.8C room. I love how quiet the Scythe Fuma 2 is.

    Arctic MX-5 Thermal Compound Listed Ahead of Launch

    I used MX-5 on my dad's 11700K and a Raijintek Themis Evo. I haven't done any kind of stress testing or benchmarking but idle temps were good. I was NOT expecting it to be such a thin/runny thermal paste. I knew they said it was more spreadable but dang.

    Arctic MX-5 Thermal Compound Listed Ahead of Launch

    I have a tube of MX-5 arriving on Saturday. I'm sure my Arctic Silver 5 is still fine to use but I wanted something non-conductive for re-pasting my graphics card.

    Intel 10 Series "Comet Lake" Launch Review Roundup (10900K, 10700K, 10600K, 10500K)

    It seems wrong that the i9-10900K is being compared to the R9 3900X since the actual retail prices put the 3900X with the i7-10700K (based on preorder prices), and that's without factoring in the cost of a cooler.

    The AMD CES 2020 High-Performance Computing Keynote Live Here!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the $200-$300 range makes up the bulk of GPU sales right? AMD is going for market share.

    Logitech G602 $22.99 @ Best Buy

    I wish Logitech would make a true successor to the G700/G700s. The G703 is missing too many buttons and the infinity scroll and I don't like the shape of the G604. It's too narrow in the back and doesn't feel good in my hand. I hope my G700s lasts another few years.

    NSFW: Nutaku Announces World's First Boob-Shaped Console for Adult Gaming

    Comments did not disappoint. It's just a shell that goes over a low-power tiny PC running windows 10 and they put a momentary switch for the power button under the nipple. There's the novelty I guess.
