    The hell is going on with hard drive prices ?!

    Prices are trending down here in China already. Chia value started high at $1400 usd in the first couple of weeks, but has tanked steadily to $400 now. I am waiting it out.

    The hell is going on with hard drive prices ?! I can confirm this. I was in the market for a couple of 8tb drives just as chia opened up. Price went up 50% in one day.

    I'm looking for thoughts on a build dilemma.

    Not fanboy, Not a fanboy, I just don't see any point in bringing up cpu's that don't exist yet. You say you can't wait, so pick a CPU on what is available now, not what will be available in 2to 4 years from now.

    Vintage Glass

    This^ I shoot 35mm, 6x7, 4x5 and 10x12. The 10x12 has by far the least "medium format" look despite being by far the largest of the bunch. Reason? The lens is a 400 f10. I get far more separation and "look" with a 50 1.4 on 35mm (but most with a 216mm f3.5 on 4x5)

    Question: OC a K CPU, but not the Video card?

    I just wonder what they use case is for having a 8086k running 3d applications with no add in gpu. You may have a valid reason that has slipped my mind just trying to learn and understand.

    Areca replacing fan: what to do with thermal grease?

    Unless you are an absolute gorilla, you won't damage the chip. Just go slow, and apply it with even pressure. Paste is fine.

    My first watercooled build: 9980XE, RTX 2080Ti, etc.

    What's there head pressure when using dual d5's? How far can you place the rad from the tower before you run into issues?

    RTX 2080 and 600W PSU

    For what it's worth, i have an Intel i5 6500, 16gb ram, two hhds, one ssd, rtx2080 and other bits like USB dongles all running on a Thermaltake 550w (for 3 years nearly with their rtx2080 added late last year) . My system seems to max out at less than 400w. I wager that you will be fine.

    What's the difference on PCB on front side USB panel of cases c/w 1 yr. warranry vs. 3 yr. warranty?

    So which is it? You've never seen fans fail or you have? For me, I've never had front port failures that were a problem with the front pcb. Fans, yes.
