    Does Palit still make good graphics cards?

    What happened to palit guy? and what happened to the frog? As for their cards they are ok, they are usually just reference designs (not founders, just nvidias suggested vrm etc spec) as they save the fancy stuff for kfa2/galax I think they only have 2 year warranty in europe, not sure about the US

    Why don't you custom water-cool your PC?

    I am running watercooling simply because i have had some half decent gear (primarily a d5 pump) for about 17 years or so, and changing a part every now and then is cheaper than buying a Noctua or equivalent air cooler. I really didn't see the point of going to town on it with my skylake 6700k...

    What are you upgrading this holiday season?

    I just got a 5800x and an MSI x570 Tomahawk to upgrade from my 6700k/z170 system. My original plan was to stick with the intel system for a while and upgrade my gpu to an rtx3080 (based on nvidia's rrp), this later became a 3070 based on actual prices, but with things just getting worse on the...

    New NVIDIA Specialized Pascal 1060-based Cryptocoin Mining GPUs Photographed

    I'd like to see display output-less cards like this, but with regular pci back panel plates (and a better heatsink) for sli/crossfire/dx12 multi gpu(lol) use Obviously they would need to be cheaper than a regular GPU for it to be worthwhile

    How thick a self-adhesive thermal tape should be?

    I would say 1mm is probably best In the case of ram you are allowing for the differences in height of each of the 8 chips (per side), as ram is so precision manufactured the differences are usually tiny on older motherboards the vrm's sometimes had a big enough variation in heights that you...
