    Here's some info on Global Foundries 7nm vs Intel's 10nm. There isn't a difference like it's being portrayed. Nvidia's die size is a lie as well.
    https://www.eejournal.com/article/life-at-10nm-or-is-it-7nm-and-3nm/
    As for the server stuff, I don't know enough about it to comment.
    Intel has an i3 7nm out in China.


    With acrylic windows, your best bet is to use a lint free cloth like you get with a pair of sunglasses. If you have gunk on your window, add a dab of rubbing alcohol to your cloth.

    Goddamn. First of its kind.

    By that I mean that this is the first time I've seen a company try to hide a purely business-related firing behind a false #metoo scandal. It would actually be worse for their stock if people realized this was really a vote of no-confidence in his vision of the company's future. Reddit has been placing bets on when he would be fired for the past six months, now.

    Forget gaming! I just want to stare at the inside of that case while it's on!

    so i have decided to become one of you. i have done some prelim research on building and i certainly would love to go that route for a handful of reasons; the potential savings, the learning experience, the customization and to be able to say i did it. the problem is, i have never built a computer and i wonder if any potential savings would be offset by frustration and time. there is also the risk/reward aspect.

    senior moderator dick looks to have picked a pc up at bestbuy. is that a legit option? would something like this be a better option than building for a noob like myself.

    are there any other sites that sell respectable gaming pcs that i should be looking at?

    Build one man their are so many resources on YouTube alone that will guide you step by step, most likely with the same exact case you choose. I knew nothing about building computers and pulled it off with minimal frustration.

    Looking to upgrade my liquid cooler from my 120mm Antec h20 650 Kuhler to something more substantial and need some advice. I'm looking at some nice 240mm's and 360mm's, but no idea which to go with. I've heard grat things about the Kraken x62, but at 280mm(2×140mm), it won't fit. Noise and aesthetics are largely irrelevant, my only concern is performance.

    The EVGA CLC240 at $90 is a great deal at the moment.

    Almost all AIO's run basically the same Asetek pump. What you're paying extra for is the fans and level of aesthetics like RGB. One thing to take into consideration is the Fractal S36 is expandable so you can add your gpu to the loop later on down the road if you want to.
