    Silicon Valley Wages Are Shrinking for All Except the Top 90th Percentile

    Location is a big part of it. I know quite a few people with engineering degree and all started in the low 50s in the Midwest.

    HashFlare Abruptly Shuts Down SHA-256 Mining Equipment and Users Scream

    Because they are ignorant? Is that your point? I lost something like 7BTC on MtGox. Im not an idiot, however, and realize that Bitcoin was not hacked, Bitcoin is not a scam - but security is a problem.

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    It definitely seems to becoming less relevant, but with a 3930K it sure helps to bring an all-core turbo of 3.5 up to 4.9. Hopefully when the new processes or materials come around, they'll be more open to OCing again. I find it enjoyable

    LMAO @ this 8086k pricing

    If they had done something like... use better toothpaste, or ship it delidded, or with a soldered IHS, I'd be happy to pay $100 more - because they actually made something for enthusiasts. But this is just a barely binned 8700k? Im not outraged or surprised, but still.. Intel is terrible.

    EVGA removes guest RMA *Update: Both USA & Europe removed guest RMA. Harder to check warranty now.

    So I read through that and I dont really understand what the "abuser" did wrong. If someone has a dead GPU that they didnt bother RMAing, that doesnt mean any future owner can't RMA it either... ??? please do explain

    Man Mauled to Death by Bear While Taking Selfie with It

    I didn't say they weren't responsible, just that's it's not funny and not ok to mock them. Empathy is a major part of being human, if you lack this you might want to sit down and reflect on life.

    Man Mauled to Death by Bear While Taking Selfie with It

    Basket of deplorables in here, especially page 1. Someone lost their life in a horrible way. They made a mistake. They did not harm anyone. You are disgusting for making jokes or worse yet saying they deserved it. As of if haven't done plenty of dumb things on your life that could have cost...

    Acer Predator XB271HU 27" WQHD IPS NVIDIA G-Sync Black/Red Gaming Monitor for $549 @ Newegg

    I went thru 4 panels. None had bleed problems. 1st had internal smudges, as if it was cracked internally 2nd had awful color uniformity and bright areas 3rd had bad uniformity and dust inside 4th has a stuck pixel. I kept this one.

    Hunt Showdown Bullet Physics System

    Reading comprehension issues much? You can not see the target. It's not predicting bullet drop if you can't see them.

    Hunt Showdown Bullet Physics System

    That's not contradictory. If you literally can not see your target because the sights block them, it's mostly luck. If you lead a target, it's mostly skill.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    These mobile chips look really impressive. Has anyone seen a review mention their temps? The 7700HQ was a pain to cool because of its size. If you had the GPU loaded and the heatsinks heat soaked, I keeping it under 90c could be hard (even while the gpu would happily run at 70-80 despite using...

    RP-452X2 P2 Rev. 2.0 w/2 D5 pumps $115 Used

    That's a weird case. I don't think you'll get it to fit in the intended fashion. If you were OK with just hanging it or something, it might be OK - but you'll have some fun with rotaries and angle fittings, most likely. Its ok though, I had to cut my case up to get the radiator to fit :)

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    No way in hell they're gonna be able to cool them on a laptop, sadly. At least not at the voltages they are using there.

    If there is dog / cat hair, does it matter how big your CPU cooler is?

    Fans don't really stop spinning from dust or hair; the heatsink fins just get coated with it, slowing the air and reducing heat transfer A larger heatsink will end up clogging too; maybe more quickly Maybe I don't understand your question

    RP-452X2 P2 Rev. 2.0 w/2 D5 pumps $115 Used

    On second thought, its a MCP655-B so no control. How did you get a vario, Naieve? It's probably overkill but I like having the comfort of two pumps. If one dies you know your system wont burn up. Fitting it is a problem. You'd need to think out how you arrange things before buying

    Bitcoin Slide Continues Towards $8K

    I've had a 290 unlocked to 290x running for around 4 years non-stop mining around 80c. It's fine. This whole "used mining cards are unreliable" thing is laughable. Miners don't overvolt. They're not degrading like an overclocked cpu.

    Upgrade 3930k @ 4.9ghz?

    Sorry to derail but what voltage are you feeding that thing? I bought one from eBay to replace a 3820 and can barely get 4.7 stable at 1.45v.

    Anyone with experience overclocking laptops? (6820/7820HK)

    I'm not sure about it being useless. I can push the 7700HQ in my laptop to -0.175v. Its like 0.90v VID effective under p95 blend; about 25w maximum cpu power draw. If the multiplier was unlocked, I think there's enough thermal headroom for at least 4ghz all core. Stock is 3.4

    Google and Levi’s $350 “Smart Jacket” Can Only Be Washed 10 Times

    Spitballing Vega GPU Performance

    It degrades image quality; doesn't really impact performance. The whole point is to get a display that looks good. That means motion clarity in fast paced games.

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    They don't even cross ship or pay for the box, so maybe if you're uninformed you shouldn't comment. Troubleshoot first, RMA second.
