    FYI

    Toshiba - Samsung = TSST
    Hitachi - LG = HLDS
    Philips - Lite-on = PLDS
    Sony - Nec = Optiarc (?)

    The profit margins (at least on regular, non-BD drives) are so damn small that they simply had to found the virtual companies mentioned in the list above.

    Probably by reducing the competing manufacturers (if there are 8 and all joined in 2s there's essentially 4 competitors), while at the same time splitting manufacturing/component purchasing costs. In simple, everyone's happy to have a fair share of the market.

    And damn hot.:laugh:





    I'm pulling 250 watts through the 8-pin @ 4.4 GHz.


    Just working on voltage and clock scaling so I can get started on board reviews. 2400 MHz ram is easy-peasy!

    82c max in LinX. Using a Noctua NH-C14.

    My CPU doesn't exactly seem to be very good, looking at others that have been reported on the net. I don't need a killer CPU for board reviews, anyway.

    Yep. Been working at it all day. Just stopped to swap out boards and have a bite to eat. Lots of flexibility in the CPUs, for sure.

    I'll forgive you if you buy me one :p

    Looking forward to the reviews, man! TBH, I wanted to review motherboards for TPU, and ended up way overwhelmed trying to do smaller items while still in school. Got a lot of respect for the time and effort that it takes :rockout:

    Looks very similar to the Deluxe I got. We'll have to compare overclocking. ;)
