    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.

    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.

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    I don't know how I forgot to post this months ago but I was designing/building a new open-air case for my living room PC and I kind of got sidetracked building a guitar, among other things, and this is how my living room PC has sat for way too long. Ryzen 3600, 32gb of something rgb and a 1080...

    AMD is smoother, and other debunkings of r/amd zingers

    You can attack me if you want, Dan, but you keep making my point for me only to then call it irrelevant. If you think the 3950x stock and 7820x @ 5ghz are not equivalent in Windows then why is that outside of the retail perspective? What processes is Windows taking advantage of with the extra...

    AMD is smoother, and other debunkings of r/amd zingers

    I stated that I DID fresh install and my friend did not. I also stated that your argument would be exactly what it is and then you go on to say that your anecdotal comparisons are more valid than mine and everyone elses so what am I missing?

    AMD is smoother, and other debunkings of r/amd zingers

    1. I actually reinstall quite often. I was not migrating an old install but I also wasn't going from an install that was more than 6 months old. 2. Friend with a nearly identical setup, 5ghz 7800x, made the swap to a 3900x and different board but same SSD/RAM as well and migrated his Win10...

    AMD is smoother, and other debunkings of r/amd zingers

    Say what you want but my 3950x is SMOOOOOOOTH compared to the 5ghz 7820x I ran before it. The Windows experience as a whole is more responsive on the same SSD and RAM and peripherals. I know for a fact it isn't faster at everything (workload dependent) but the whole experience is better in...

    Don't forget complaining about student loans they agreed to and are paying while trying to live in insanely high rent areas.

    Blizzard Workers Share Salaries in Revolt Over Wage Disparities

    It isn't... when you move somewhere cheaper to live and take your marketable skills with you. If you are planning a family one would think you would take into consideration whether you can afford it or not even though we know no one does.

    Need help finding a M/B with odd specs

    You could always go older and do that cheap potentially. I know my Z77 G1 Sniper had dual dedicated x16 slots and was one of few non-enthusiast boards that did. I totally happen to be selling an X299 board that would take care of you handily though if you bought a CPU for it :D

    E-ATX Small Footprint - Are There Any?

    I have put multiple rampage 5 extremes into my Fractal Arc Midi R2. I think I put it in my old Lian Li PC-65 actually at one point. EATX or not it isn't a hard board to fit in normal ATX cases.

    G2A admits it sold stolen game keys

    We should definitely come together as a gaming community and condemn them for their actions so they know better than to own up to wrongdoing and try to make it right.

    Overclock Away: Intel Offers Insurance for Unlocked 10th Gen Comet Lake CPUs

    That still isn't very honest when 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the time the CPU will outlast us all on what is considered a normal OC. I haven't managed to kill a CPU by overclocking, extreme and mundane, since the Athlon XP days. Honestly you have a better chance of the...

    Garage PC finally got stuck on the wall after 2.5 years of sitting on its' box on my horribly cluttered workbench. I'm in the middle of a pretty hardcore garage clean up and now this is out of the way :D Xeon w3690 @ 4.4ghz 24gb DDR3 1800mhz GTX 680 4gb

    Beat Saber is Awesome - I need new arms

    Hahahahahaha, you should try Master of Puppets Expert+ because it is up there with some of the hardest tracks and it's a workout easily. Once you start playing Expert+ everything and speeding it up it's a lot more fun and is definitely not casual. Angel Voices Expert (not +) at 175% speed is one...

    Windows 10 Warning: Anger At Microsoft Rises With Serious New Failure

    I think the tables turned from *nix gamers being the annoying ones by endlessly advocating for it to the people annoyed by it endlessly complaining about the *nix guys before anyone even shows up.
