    Apple Reports Third Quarter Results

    SE2 is just a stripped down iPhone, with a stripped down experience when you compare it to newer models. It is zippy and snaps decent pics..

    If your 2500K is a dud, then sure why not? You get the threads and extra cache, you would notice that. 60 would be a better deal, but you could probably get that for your 2500K..

    Crackleing sound from the CPU socket

    I swear I used to be able to hear my old Tbred 2600 and Barton Mobile 2500+ at full load running well over 2v vcore :D Maybe there is a hair in there trying its best to bridge a connection..

    Which one of these silicon pastes are better for the GPU

    Between AS5, CF3, and TF8 I only noticed maybe 2-4c difference. Pretty big maybe though.. If anything, temps were grouped closer together between cores.

    Kit Guru answers the question of positive vs negative case airflow for better temps

    I try to move as much as as I can, seems to be working well :rockout: I tried some popular methods recently, but ended up going back to my own. Brute force :laugh:

    Show your RealBench score

    It shouldn't be too surprising considering you have a 1080Ti and I have a 980.

    Absurd GPU Prices

    That’s a pretty shitty thing to say to someone you don’t know. If this was my site I would permaban your ass. You also need some friends, your within two decades of suicide.

    Gigabyte 2070 super Gaming OC 8GB power limit

    Quality of silicon also plays a small part, not every slice is of equal quality. That goes for CPUs and GPUs alike.

    Indeed, just didn’t want to see another kid brick his card..
