    Yet Another Speculative Malfunction: Intel Reveals New Side-Channel Attack, Advises Disabling Hyper-Threading Below 8th, 9th Gen CPUs

    GIGABYTE Rolls Out Aorus ATC800 CPU Cooler

    Looking at it, the box is fine. It's a dual fan design, you wouldn't be getting that much air dissipating sideways anyway. Overall, this looks like a solid design. Now we just need to hear the prices and see benches against the Mugen 5.
