    COLORFUL Launches CVN B660I Mini-ITX Motherboards

    True. The numbers on carriers are usually taller and don't have nearly as thick of drop-shadows.

    COLORFUL Launches CVN B660I Mini-ITX Motherboards

    That's not a "sportsball" reference, but rather a aircraft carrier deck number. The "CVN" designation (i.e. Aircraft Carrier, Nuclear) kinda gives it away.

    GPU database showing card sizes?

    I know that MSI routinely lists their cards' weights (both bare and packaged) in their respective specs pages such as this one for the 3080 Gaming Z Trio, but I don't think any other AIB partners follow that practice in full. ASRock does list a "net weight" for some of their newer 6x50 cards...

    Why a good decent card is abandoned??

    Crossfire uses "mirrored" VRAM, so both GPUs would have the same data in their respective 4GB buffers.

    Several European Countries to Miss Diablo Immortal Over Lootbox Regulations

    Isn't Blizzard already obeying said national laws by not officially offering Diablo Immortal in those countries? If a company doesn't want to change their product as to cater to various countries' laws then there's no viable method to force them to do so.

    Question about Latency DDR4 3200

    I'm running a Core i7-10700 (non-K) and 4x8GB of DDR4-3200 CL16 memory and its latency is 51.7 nanoseconds, which is probably within the margin of error of your 53.3 nanoseconds.

    K series chips with B series boards?

    There are some chipset-based limitations, but in terms of CPU performance running a 12600K on something like a MSI B660 Tomahawk WiFi DDR4 wouldn't be any different than a Z690 board at stock clocks.

    G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB and Ripjaws S5 Series DDR5 Memory Receive Red Dot Design Award 2022

    I think the red accent looks OK on the white variant, but not so much on the black one.

    What was your first PC?

    My first computer was a DEC Starion (back when Digital did consumer PCs) containing a Pentium 75MHz with "S3 Trio 32" graphics.
