    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

    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.

    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.

    Logitech G502 Gaming Mouse Gets an Upgrade

    How about a proper successor to the G700s? The G703 is just a G403 with wireless charging. No infinity wheel and far fewer buttons compared to the G700(s). I'm not a fan of the ambidextrous shape of the 900/903 for a wireless option. I still have my old G500 as a backup. I think I need to clean...

    Monster Hunter: World Global Sales Boosted by Steam Release

    Hopefully they see this as a reason to properly develop future PC versions of games rather than put out buggy console ports. I really like the game but it shouldn't have so many connection issues and performance should be a lot better.

    Apple: 2018 MacBook Pro Throttling Is a Bug, Fix Now Available

    It's being throttled to below base clock. That's the issue. If it could run 100% at base clock on all 4 cores then this wouldn't have been an issue. LinusTechTips tested the claims. They tried exporting a video in Final Cut Pro and the CPU throttled in under a minute.

    Nintendo Reported in Norway for Breaching European Consumer Law

    Nintendo Reported in Norway for Breaching European Consumer Law

    You underestimate the scuminess of people. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. I like Steam's current approach to this. You need to have less than 2 hours played within the 14 days to qualify for a refund.
