    @essenbe If your offer still stands I could look at sending some funds to your PayPal account. I think I can trust you.

    There is actually little point to buying the EVGA cards locally as if you need to RMA the card gets sent to Taiwan anyway, there is no EVGA service center here. No need to get the store to do that for you and I can usually organize advanced replacements myself. I could probably save quite a few hundred dollars if I got somebody in the US to buy one for me. I'd like to see the NZD gain some strength first though.

    I was really only joking. If I bought it for you the card would go through customs when it arrives there. You would have to pay duty on it. I really doubt it would help you much at all. We have had that discussion here more than a few times. I'm sure I would do it, but I honestly think it would be a bad idea for you.

    I just got it Steve about 10 mins ago, took me a while longer than I expected, they are real strict on how you pay it seems. Or their web site was messed up, BUT ....I bought it finally. No delivery date yet.

    That's looking really good Cliff! Not really breaking 80C in Cinebench at 5.3Ghz I think you have a really good chip. I'm surprised you even got 5.3Ghz! Well done. Was this a standard retail box 9900K?

    Thanks Mike, temps getting boarder line now, but nice "low" voltage.
    I said before the Maximus X Hero has good VRM's(according to online reviews), but this is surprising me a lot.
