  1. Compared to other SSD cells , yes . They can only do about 1000 or so PE cycles before dying . But if you think about it ,that's still multiple Petabytes worth of writes for that 2.6TB NAND flash chip . That's actually quite a bit , especially when you consider that people don't usually write data to their drive that much compared to how much is read, where damage doesn't occur. Also , keep in mind rated vs actual endurance statistic . For 2.66 PB of write endurance , that means you could still write roughly 1.5TB to your drive every day , for FIVE YEARS.
  2. Ryzen 3000 series might have more than 8 cores

    Only 9999......$ Who are we kidding, intel can't yield that until 2020
  3. is my tap water safe to drink?

    Both, actually. While the pipes certainly didn't help, the major problem still remained the flint river itself and poor treatment however. There is a statewide effort to replace the old lead pipes in flint. It's worth noting that from 1967 to 2013, before the switch to the flint river as main water source, these pipes were still there and weren't causing any significant problems. No, the issue stemmed from cost cutting mesures enacted by the flint administration that preceded the incident, not to mention constant denial and obstruction after the water pollution was clearly demonstrated. Stuff like legionnaire's disease was clearly not caused by corroded pipes either.
  4. is my tap water safe to drink?

    To be fair, during the incident, lead levels were considerably higher than what we are talking here, with concentrations well above 20ppb (spikes up to 100+ ppb) and more critically, the 15ppb Federal limit. Not to mention a whole suite of heavy metals and other pollutants coming directly from the flint river.
  5. is my tap water safe to drink?

    As @pangea2017 said Lead, as any naturally occurring substance, will be find in water in some quantity, there's simply no avoiding that, and there has been since the beginning of time, before we started dumping pollutants into our streams. Therefore our body has some level of resistance towards it. What matters here is that the quantities involved aren't high enough to cause damage over the long term. As seen, even average tapwater contains some amount of lead, and hundreds of millions of people drink it every day. I'd be more concerned if he found a significant quantity of mercury in the water supply...
  6. is my tap water safe to drink?

    It's probably fine. Looking purely at lead content , it's well within the margins set by the EPA , but higher than average to be sure. I compared the values to what we have here in france , we personally have a 10ppb limit on lead for drinking water , but it used to be 25ppb up until 2014. The reality is that there's always going to be some lead in water because it's fairly common in nature. If you don't feel comfortable drinking tap water like that ( which i can understand ) , consider investing into a water filter.
  7. ASUS GTX 960s SLI troubles...

    Are you still running the sabertooth board ? or did you get another one ? sorry , couldn't quite tell from the text
  8. i5 3570k or i7 2600k

    the i7 should pull ahead quite a bit . It's likely able to OC farther ( i"ve seen people get well over 5ghz on a 2600k) as well but 4.5ghz is about the max for Ivy bridge due to not being soldered , and it'll run very hot unless you're under liquid. all in all the only thing the i5 has going for it is pcie 3.0 and lower power consumption
  9. Isnt this better offer?

    Plus , if you look at the board spec sheet
  10. Isnt this better offer?

    the board itself doesn't have DP , but it doesn't matter because the r5 1600 doesn't have an onboard GPU , meaning you'll have to connect your display to your GPU anyway " 2 x M.2 Socket" , so yes that means it has m.2 . Plus , it's a standard feature on the x370/x470/b350 chipsets
  11. Isnt this better offer?

    it's fine
  12. Isnt this better offer?

    well you didn't update the link , so i couldn't really have known ... But yes, you can use ethernet if you want. In fact , why don't you look at x470 boards ? They're usually the same price but have more updated features edit; nvm , that x370 board was cheaper than i thought
  13. Isnt this better offer?

    that's what you listed?
  14. Isnt this better offer?

    2600's stock cooler is the same . The chip just runs hotter, but the stock cooler is still adequate . The SSD is only overkill depending on what you plan to do . Your system will feel a little bit faster, but not 4x faster. There's no obvious weakness to speak of
  15. Isnt this better offer?

    board is fine . I have the same one myself . It doesn't have wifi though. But why are you buying a 1600 when the 2nd gen chips are out?
