    EVGA Introduces SuperNOVA G7 Power Supply Series

    And you would be 120% wrong, since Super Flower hasn't been working with EVGA on ANY newer platforms or models for several years now. The G6 was Seasonic and this is almost certainly Seasonic as well. The G5 was FSP and it wasn't particularly good. The only models EVGA still uses Super Flower...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    Right, but most of them COME with one. Intel's unlocked SKUs do not, therefore, in reference to what initiated that comment, it is a product that needs another product TO BE BOUGHT in order to use it, as are a few of the AMD models as was mentioned. Regardless, it wasn't a very sensible comment...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    They buy their ICs (memory chips) but then do their own design, binning, selection of PCB, solder, etc and then manufacture the actual modules....so yes there is a big difference....if all they did was buy and rebrand, then all would be coming out with basically the same sets and freqs at the...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    Then I guess Intel should immediately stop selling all K SKU processors?

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    You knew what I meant, and, we didn't used to have that either. Until we did. Also, I think that if the manufacturers can use an advertised speed of 4000mhz, the rest of us can as well, whether it is technically accurate due to the reality of double data rate or not...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    There have never been solutions to these kinds of technical problems, until there were, so I'm hopeful that eventually engineers will figure out better materials or more efficient heatsinks that can be much, much smaller, or more efficient controllers and designs that won't require the same...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    I kind of thought you might be, but it wasn't super obvious so I figured I'd mention it. And yeah, the other style with active fan seems like a much better solution. Early on I had a Hero VIII and my 970 EVO was throttling so I got one of those 3d printed 40mm fan holders that is held down by...

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    Actually, if you look closely at the expanded image you'll see that all those points ARE rounded off, so in reality there aren't any sharp or "jabby jab" points on it anyhow.

    Thermalright Intros HR-09 2280 Pro, a Humongous M.2 SSD Heatsink

    Not according to the article. It specifically states that it is not intended to be used with a fan.

    Intel LGA 1700 socket problem??

    I was only clarifying that one of the stated socket suppliers mentioned by TheLostSwede was inaccurate from what they actually were according to two pretty distinctly accurate sources, and had nothing whatsoever to do with you AND then, in regard to what YOU said, specifically, was: And the...

    Intel LGA 1700 socket problem??

    Actually, according to Igor and Buildzoid, the two socket suppliers are Lotes and Foxconn, not Helm. What you meant and what you said are two different things. What you SAID was it is not a new socket, however it 100% IS a new socket. What is not new is the array type, since it is still a Land...

    Canada is the Next Nation That is Getting Ready to Invest in the Semiconductor Industry

    All these planned fabs and manufacturing facilities are great, but these same countries better first think about also making facilities for manufacturing semiconductor grade neon, since about half of the world's supply is about to become permanently bye bye.

    ZOTAC Announces the MAGNUS One Gaming Mini-PC

    Zotac should offer this case, standalone, with whatever mITX, mATX support it offers, without the other hardware. I personally kind of like the case aesthetics and seems it likely doesn't have major thermal problems with the amount of perforations it has. Would make a worthy HTPC or ITX gaming...

    CES 2021: Thermaltake launches DIVIDER 300TG ATX Mid-Tower Chassis

    It's not a difference. It's welcome back to 2005 style cases with partial view side panels. Sorry Thermalfake. Old is NOT new.

    Dirtyferret, you get a full medal for having the best signature ever seen on any forum in terms of creative originality. So there is that.
