Reading the issue logs for google is an entertaining activity.
Even google employees are susceptible to fat-fingering a setting, just like us!
I too lucked out this round. A few GPUs back I happened to go with (at the time) ATI and was super pleased. I was days away from pulling the trigger on an R9 290 non-X when I logged on to [H] and saw the 980 review. I waited for some 970 reviews to come in and pulled the trigger, not regretting...
Losing Netflix is a dealbreaker for me, which is a shame. My current 2010-era WD TV (called the magic box in my house) is used for an 80/20 split of Netflix/USB storage. It's been my favorite of this class of devices, and I've even convinced a few friends to purchase one as well.
That's honestly bananas. I haven't had any issues overclocking my i5-3570K to 4.4ghz on air, but I would love lower temperatures when I do so.
Does the de-lidding allow you to use lower voltages when overclocking, or just make higher voltages safer due to the lower overall temperature?
