    Water cooling vs air cooling ,which is better?

    Much of it also depends on your case flow. High-end air performs better than AIO on an open-air test bench/testing that is only doing a CPU torture test. If you put an AIO as a cold-intake into your case, it will perform better than high end air when your internal case air starts getting hot...

    Which CPU platform is better for me i7 8700 vs 1700 for workstation and gaming?

    The main issue here is that Android Studio requires intel virtualization tech (it's on their requirements) for hardware accelerated features to work. If that is a piece of software that he uses often then AMD is not even in the running. The point of the temp comment was to show that under the...

    Which CPU platform is better for me i7 8700 vs 1700 for workstation and gaming?

    if you do any gaming at all 8700k is better, if you want a pure workstation, 1700 is way better. This is my 1700 workstation, while crunching and doing db load, and massive excel sheets, and youtube music, uses the same amount of power as my 7820x at light browsing. Never breaks 60C at 3.6ghz...

    EK Water Blocks Announces Availability of the EK-MLC Phoenix

    yeah but also the time and the maintenance, and the buying of parts, and researching/experimenting. It's a pain in the a**. I don't know anyone with a serious waterloop that doesnt have a ton of extra parts lying around from the days of experimenting...

    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    The community involvement was the biggest thing imo. Half the reason i come to TPU to read the stories is so i can see what the nerdclowns here post in response (because it tends to restore my faith in humanity). Like when the iphone airbuds story hit on NPU, i would have loved to see...

    CaseLabs' Popular Magnum SMA8 Case Undergoes Transformation

    No I know them well -- almost got a BH8 but they didnt have a closed top panel and the side come apart slightly when picked up. It's still needlessly ugly. Would get a Pinnacle 24/18 over this anyday.

    No upgrades till Volta & 8th gen HEDT build...

    yeah my 7820x at 4.6 @ 1.16v can suck down ~350W of power (550W @ AVX512 full bore according to sisoft which i think is bs)... i cant even imagine juice that thing is putting out. The best stability test i have found for these is the Sisoft Sandra Processor Multimedia bench. Run that and watch...
