    Random temp spikes w/ Ryzen

    This is what I'm seeing when the CPU isnt under load. Device manager doesn't show anything using CPU intermittently...Nothing running out of the ordinary, Firefox/Spotify, back ground activities like steam... Is this a bug in Afterburner? Windows? Something else? A bad CPU cooler mount?

    Shield TV 2017

    We changed up the house a bit, so the 2nd Shield I've had lingering around waiting for a home isnt required any more, and I'll just keep using my 2015 shield. Shield is new, never booted. I used the 2nd controller for a bit. Other than that its NIB. This is what they call the "Gaming Edition"...

    iPhone bootrom exploit

    This is literally the biggest hardware news of any sort in a long LONG time. It makes spectre/meltdown look like a joke. And it's really bad for Apple security. Buckle up buttercup. We're in for a wild ride over the next weeks and months.

    evga 1070ti sc

    08G-P4-5671-KR Mild/moderate use, I mean, I gamed with it, then relegated it to the work PC. Did overclock it. Didnt mine with it. I dont even remember where I bought it, may be a review copy from here? So probably no warranty. B-Stock has it for $389 USD. Ebay seems to be around ~400 CAD. Is...

    8700k + Asus z370-e

    Assuming the 15% intel cut comes through, what could I expect for this combo used? Searching MemEx, a 9700k is currently $500, so $425 post cut. Equivalent asus mobo is about 200. 625 retail on the combo...$500 on the forums here?

    Rumour: Canada Computer Ryzen 3 prices

    3900X - $679 3800X - $549 3700X - $449 3600X - $339 3600 - $279 I have this on very good authority from someone in the organization. It's obviously still subject to change, but this is a safe bet for release within $20 I would say.

    Overprovisioning SSD's

    Considering I dont fill my SSD's ever to 100% capacity, is overprovisioning actually neccisary & beneficial on modern SSD's? It's my understanding modern controllers utilize any empty space on a SSD for write amplification & wear levelling nowadays..which makes me think as long as I have...
