    Is this guys method of applying thermal paste a good idea? Wrap cling wrap over your finger and then use it to spread the paste?

    I started using the spatula that came with my mx-5 and spread it all over the CPU. I find that CPUs are getting too big to rely on the pressure of the HSF mounting to spread and cover the entire CPU.

    Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won't let them return the cards

    Cooler suggestions needed LGA1700

    Hard to beat the Thermal right Peerless assassin for $38. Black one is going to cost you $10 more. That said nothing wrong with the D15. It is still one of the best air coolers out there.

    God of War: Ragnarök

    [H]OT !!!! 5800X3D $279.65 Shipped , Newegg

    Yea, NE shipping has become really slow. I don't order much anymore but it is typical to be a week with ground shipping. I understand since it is coming from Commiefornia and I am on the east coast. Just seems they don't ship out much from NJ location anymore.

    How much do you have to spend approx to play current games at 4k 120mhz refresh rate?

    I would say closer to $3k if you want to have near max settings. You will need a 4090. I don't think the 7900xtx will have the grunt to push 120 high settings even with FSR.

    You're Most Anticipated 2023 Games

    I was super excited for GoW but nearly 3 weeks later I still haven't beaten it and have little desire to pick it back up. I don't hate either. I think it is great but idk I just don't care anymore. Time for me to find a new hobbie.
