    WD SN720 nvme drive - dramless?

    Searched Google a few times, but I wasn't able to find info on the WD SN720 m.2 nvme SSD. Anyone have insight if it's dramless/HMB or what controller it uses? Seems to be a server or OEM drive. Thanks!

    EnderW - did you go through with this purchase? I got a U.2 drive by mistake - would like to adapt to pcie x1 slot, but the drive is an x4. Would that be a constriction to the speed of the drive? Thanks!

    CDW Outlet Finds

    Yeah, I had a "bite" price. The weird thing - the first listing for it said "new - blemished packaging" which then changed to "used - like new". Received it yesterday and the card was in original box (serials matched) but in an antistatic bag for a 2080ti. Imagine my face when I saw the bag...

    New bargain pump/res combo worth a look.

    Those Lowara D5 pumps, depending on purchase quantity, can be purchased for around $44 from distribution channels. Is the reservoir worth $70? Idk, looks goofy IMO.

    EVGA GTX 1660 Ti XC Ultra GAMING $219

    Not worth much more than that, I presume the 5600 XT will outperform it.

    Do I need to reseat my cpu block?

    What block - is the orientation correct? Most waterblocks should be oriented such that the microchannels are parallel to the die. If the channels get clogged from contaminants or corrosion, the performance drops quite a bit if in a perpendicular orientation to the die.

    CPU die lapping, long term experience

    Let me clarify, I would not coat the die with anything.

    CPU die lapping, long term experience

    I did that with a E8400 chip out of curiosity. The chip died after 6 months. The failure, in my opinion, was due to the rear case fan developing a vibration that caused the koolance block to grind against the die and shave off some of the gold plating - a conductive particle. Had I done things...

    Should I buy a B450? Or are we expecting a B550 release?

    I just upgraded a friends rig with the Ryzen 1600 / B450 combo from Microcenter. His thought - use the R5 1600 until a 3600 release, update BIOS right before, then sell the chip for others to do the same.

    CM Hyper 212 LED Refurb $17 shipped Newegg

    Got this in the mail - finally. Fedex decided it wasn't a big deal to deliver on time. Everything looked new except the packaging, almost like some bit was forgotten from the factory and they had to open it back up and stick a part inside.

    I ordered one of those H270 boards...No backplate, no cables, nothing. The B-Stock site says "We will never sell items that are defective, have more than minimal cosmetic damage or are missing needed parts." Well, I'm trying to get them to refund $4.15 to buy a backplate from China.

    Not bad, I was looking at a GTX 1070 for $250, but realized there are ebay auctions ending lower than that. At least those 1030's aren't the DDR4 version.

    Intel i7-3770k $159.99 on eBay

    Eh, just my 2 cents you can get a Ryzen 5 1600 for 10 bucks more, and have newer motherboard / bios / features. I guess if you want to make use of a lot of DDR3 and a top of the line motherboard still, this would be a decent option.

    When It Comes to Voice Identification, the “NSA Reigns Supreme”

    This is quite true, and existed prior to 2004. Lucent Technologies / Bell Labs in Lisle/Naperville, IL was working on the technology for quite a while. Not only could they recognize voice, but completely spoof someone's voice, location, and phone number very accurately. A friend of mine...
