Re: I have to call absolute BS on the SPCR 7890K review

...and none of this has anything to do with you having the 7870K? It's really not the done thing to come on a forum, pick a fight with everyone who disagrees with you then diss the editorial content of the site. Oh, but I forgot: you are right, not arrogant.

Ah, I get it now. You own a 7870K, and this review mortally offends your testosterone gland. I think you need to deal with that , whatever that is, before you attempt to have a meaningful discussion.

Re: I have to call absolute BS on the SPCR 7890K review

I know, I was really angered by the fact that it is a disservice to people to gloss over the fact that there is no real difference between the 7890K and the 7870K except for the price. Who cares, they both suck. It's not "Buy the 7870K if you are not a TOTAL MORON. End of fricking story." As Gadget...

Re: The most annoying thing about building a PC

When you do support you have to know this and compensate for it. It's also an exercise in setting limits. Building systems for others is a great way to get rid of your older stuff. Or less than new stuff. Since you are responsible for support it will have to be good stuff; only sell crap as a chall...

The most annoying thing about building a PC

By far the most annoying thing about building a PC is doing it for someone else as a favour for only the cost of the parts, because they expect free technical support for life no matter how badly they screw up. If they pour a bucket of water over it whilst it is plugged in and running, it's your job...

How do you turn a 4770K into a 4790K? Delid it, scrape off the thick black glue of the IHS put on some decent TIM, put on a thinner layer of silicon glue around the IHS, replace it - and Bob's your auntie. It was (and is) very easy to delid the 4770K, all you need is a vice and you place the PCB on ...

For those wanting a tip on the 2016 Presidential race

Totally off topic, but for those wanting to have a flutter on political betting here are a couple of good outside bets that have a real chance of happening:

1) Republican Presidential nominee - Paul Ryan

2) Hillary Clinton's running mate - Elizabeth Warren.
