    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    No unlocked multi. At best I'll try to max out 102.5 MHz bclk and squeeze as much as I can from the memory. But it would depend on the board I buy. I don't want to buy anything pricier than a B360/H370.

    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    Picked up this i5-9400F. Now to find a 300-series board that can boot with the damn thing out of the box. Hadn't thought that part through. Unlike AM4 platform, very very few Intel 300-series motherboards offer BIOS Flashback feature. Intel appears to have idiot-proofed the box well against...

    Airbus A380: from European dream to white elephant

    797 is a middle-of-the-market plane. It will at best speed up demise of not just 787-8 and A330-200/800, but also the 290-seat 787-9 and A330-300/900 in medium-haul. Both Pratt-Whitney and CFM engine options of the A321neo/LR put out ~150 kN thrust, while a 787-8 puts out 280 kN thrust on both...

    Airbus A380: from European dream to white elephant

    Airbus A380: from European dream to white elephant

    I think the real symbol of European success is the humble A320. It owns the skies here in India and most parts of Asia and Europe, torments Boeing to no end, and its latest sibling, the A321-LR, will disrupt the medium-haul point-to-point market by killing 250-seat widebodies like the 787-8 and...
