    "Lawyering Up" - Coinbase to Send Data on 13,000 Users to the IRS

    That's called tax evasion. Frankly, it's not worth it, because the IRS will eventually find out.

    AMD Announces Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G with Vega Integrated Graphics

    Have you looked at my comment in the CPU-Z thread yet? It appears as though your testing methods are flawed. https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/share-your-cpuz-benchmarks.216765/page-46#post-3797803

    Share your CPUZ Benchmarks!

    I think trickson hasn't taken the new scoring into consideration. His Ryzen scores very well. It will blow away his old CPU, he just needs to run both on the same version of the benchmark to show it. My Intel i7-7700 (work pc) @ stock ($310) Single-Core: 477.5 Multi-Core: 2,404.6 - 8 Threads...

    G.SKILL Releases World's Fastest DDR4-4700MHz Trident Z RGB Memory Kit

    I don't see anything close to those speeds on their website. Nothing above 3,333MHz. EDIT: I found some very quick RAM in their XTREEM limited edition pages. Not very obvious to the casual browser. Although I didn't see anything over 4,500MHz

    Vertagear SL5000 Gaming Chair

    I'm looking for a solid chair that does not look like a race car seat. Are there any quality "adult" chairs that would look good in a home office that don't break the bank?

    ASRock Announces X299 OC Formula Motherboard

    The OC Formula was very bold black and yellow. Is this the first version away from the yellow color scheme?

    Intel Quietly Reveals 12-core i9-7920X 2.9 GHz Base Core Clock

    I would consider the 8-core i7-7820X if it had full access to all of the platforms PCIe lanes. Forcing consumers to pay at least $989 for 44 PCIe lanes is terrible customer service and a quick way to stop people from "upgrading" their Z270 chipset.

    MSI Intros X299 Tomahawk Arctic Motherboard

    I really like the white PCB and components on this board. Although I haven't decided on whether or not I'd be willing to run an MSI board yet. Either way, this would look great in an all-white build.
