    Want to Buy Looking for G34 socket compatible Heatsink 2X

    FYI, Alpine, any clip-down AM2/AM3/AM4 heatsink will work on G34 - you just have to mod the clips so that instead of facing away from the socket, they face in towards the socket. edit - not the clearest photograph in the world, but hopefully you catch my drift...

    Any Freedom Mobile customers here on a prepaid plan?

    Wow. Nobody? RIP Freedom. Let's set Oct. 20 as the deadline on a first-come-first-serve basis. After that, let's just consider it a donation to Freedom, who clearly are in need of some financial assistance. edit - offer off the table, mods please feel free to remove this thread

    Any Freedom Mobile customers here on a prepaid plan?

    I've moved away to a location outside Freedom's coverage area, so I'm closing my Freedom account and have about $15 in top-up credits left. They're non-refundable, but I can transfer them to another Freedom prepaid account before I close mine in case anyone wants them. Must be right now, though...

    Hot Deals!!!!!

    FWIW, I only said "probably" because I don't have those kits myself. But no other ICs would be binned at those speed/timing combos, so they're almost certainly B-dies. edit - And whoa! Suddenly none of them are available. So clearly I was right. edit2 - These now seem to be the cheapest B-die...

    List of SSI-MEB cases

    Well, I doubt you'll ever find a Ziggy Elysium. The HAF932, despite having to bend a couple flaps is actually, truly ideal because of the great airflow. The later HAF, though, is a no-go - so maybe the HAF932 is hard to find now too. The Stacker you know all about. The rest I honestly don't...

    Protip: buy the cheapest kit of Samsung B-die you can find and OC its tits off.

    The next build or builds? What do you guys suggest?

    FWIW, I'm still rocking a Xeon E5 on X79 for my DD. The Ryzen 9 3950X is the first chip that's given me the upgrade bug since then.

    List of SSI-MEB cases

    Mobo mostly supported in the HAF932 - just the top row of standoffs don't exist. I used rubber spacers that I glued to the mobo tray instead. Many years of use and heat later, those spacers are still in place. edit - You'll also like this. It's a SM H8QGI-F in a cheapo $70 Rosewill R4000:

    what's more secure? AMD or Intel?

    Actually, the most likely attack vector is going to be your decision to give your fridge unencrypted access to your home network. When was the last time anyone updated the firmware on their "smart" appliances? I'm pretty sure nobody ever has, even once.
