    Upgraded to 9900k. Which 2080TI to get?

    Figured I'd max out my PC with a 9900k and 2080ti and then let the PC be for a few years. However.... Tons of reviews on newegg are talking about cards dying. Tons of articles about them dying... so I have a question. Which card is best? Are there any that are failing less than others? What...

Then I started looking at the MSI Ace BUT I just read that...

    Any Artic Liquid Freezer 360 users here? Considering one for the 9900k

    Hello! Just trying to get some feedback about the 360 version as it seems all reviews are for the smaller ones. Hoping that they didnt mess anything up with the larger unit as I am considering it for the 9900k. The other unit I was considering is the newest Swiftech ones. Thanks

    Der8auer Delids 9900k and Investigates TIM

    Der8auer noticed that his 9900k was running hotter than it should, especially when compared to an 8700k with inferior TIM. While the extra two cores definitely account for some of the heat, der8auer delidded a 9900k and took some measurements. As it turns out, the 9900k's die is significantly...
