    I find coffee to be completely revolting. Going to have to skip this generation.
    I'm starting to see that the CPU and Hardware world are at a stand still and not the gains it used to be

    Every Generation has a 5% increase which overclocking is pretty much Balances it out seems to me we're better off sticking with the current hardware until about 2020 seriously by then it may be a 20%performance increase at best from Intel anyway

    AMD has brought back competition but reality is none of these will improve hardware from 2015-2017 for gaming everything is with in margin and really no way to say what solution is best it is a Tie as far as i am concerned

    Sadly though this is almost across the board with the select 1% that uses Powerful builds for other purposes but most of us do about the same thing if any that is why we come here

    I bought a 5960x but it was a dud and returned it

    Now i am considering grabbing a 7700k that was already delided and repackaged that will hit 5.2 Ghz with no Thermal issues what so ever

    Just something for me to consider i am not even sure if it will make any difference besides benchmarks

    If you want to skip all the deliding and effort just get one from Silicon lottery


    They have CPU's up tested delided and resealed for your pleasure it seems like a way better option then trying to find a chip that will do it and they brought the temps down by 25c at best

    It would be pretty much locked in results they published with cooler temps of 25c

    Nothing to be afraid of delidding nowadays, my 6700K survived to operation OK.

    Try delidding a Threadripper...I am quite confident that you'll brick the CPU
