    Go to page 22 and read all the way up until page 25.
     
    To me, this is the moat profound message the book sends. Many, many people work for money hoping that they can go off and get a higher job. Then there are people who use their money to work for them.

    Hopefully they start selling the tickets soon AND they don't run out, because that would suck SOOOOO much because then I would have to go and try to cancel shit.

    I cant imagine this happening for several reasons, but the biggest one is the antitrust laws we have in the US. 
     
    Having all x86 made by one company would be a monopoly, and its already bad enough with only two players.
     
    I doubt this will happen and if it did, it would be very, VERY bad for consumers even if you are a super hardcore intel fanboy that believes AMD should just die, because this would allow intel to sit on their ass and produce nothing new like they did during the AMD FX days.
     
    Really dont think this will ever happen, I expect its just intel corporate stirring up some nonsense to generate press.

    Ive decided I will be selling my main desktop PC sometime in march. 
     
    For my needs, my X99 rig is massively overkill and my needs have changed. I no longer need a fast computer. Not only that, but it sits at my house almost never used while im in college. I will be switching to using my laptop exclusively.
     
    I will also be building a computer specifically for testing hard drives, PSUs, RAM, and expansion cards for my computer reselling business since beforehand I was using my desktop for hardware testing.
     
    This test machine will likely run windows 7, windows 10, and linux. It will probably be based around the LGA 775 or lga 1366 platform since I want to use very expendable hardware (core 2 duo machines are as common as grains of sand at computer recycling centers) that I can easily replace if it fails.
     
    Coming spring break, I will be selling my X99 rig. I will also be publishing a build log for a guinea pig PC on the LTT forums. Expect to see some updates in march.
     
    As a reminder, now is still a good time to get into X99. If intels X48, x58 and X79 platform can tell us anything, its that there will be a huge dump of extremely cheap server CPUs on ebay sometime in the 2020s. Because of this, X99 motherboards will shoot up massively in price to the $300-400 price range. Try to get in while the boards are cheap.
     
    Will I one day go back to having a desktop PC? Absolutely. But it just doesnt make any sense for a college student who uses a laptop all the time to have an expensive computer sitting at home never used. Keep in mind that machine is losing value every day I keep it, and I would prefer to turn it into cash since I can take my money and invest it and grow it, while I cant do that with computer parts.
     
    Let me know around late february if you are interested in the following parts:
     
    Gigabyte X99 SLI motherboard
    (This board supports BOTH Xeon CPUs AND ECC registered DDR4, VERY important for the predicted xeon dump)
    I7-5820K
    Some giant ass phantecs cooler (TC14PE?)
    EVGA Gtx 970
    16gb ddr4 4x4gb
    Samsung 950 pro 256GB PCIe SSD

    CUDAcores89 got a reaction from WikiForce for a status update, Asrock and Gigabyte boards are better than Asus boards. Why? Because I've found and r   
    Asrock and Gigabyte boards are better than Asus boards.
     
    Why?
     
    Because I've found and recovered hundreds of motherboards at the junkyards and overall, asus boards have had the single highest failure rate. i'm also not just saying that because I find a lot of asus boards and it's skewing the statistics, because I don't. I don't find many asus boards to begin with. I usually find more Gigabyte boards anyway.
     
    Nearly every single asus board I have brought back from the junkyard was DOA, while the gigabyte board sitting right next to it in the same recycling container worked perfectly fine.
     
    It doesn't even matter the architecture. I've found asus LGA 775, AM3, AM3+, X58, LGA 1150, LGA 1155, LGA 1156 have ALL have been dead or had some sort of problems coming out of the gate.
     
    This is the single biggest reason I will never buy an asus board. For some reason asus boards can't take a beating and being tossed into a container kills them. Meanwhile the Gigabyte and Asrock boards function like nothing happened.
     
    Although last week I did recover an Asus P5Q Pro board that appears to still work. That being said I've had asus boards just die randomly in my possession just from trying some different RAM, it makes absolutely no sense.
     
    Overall if you plan to use the same motherboard for 10+ years like I do, stick with something more durable. Gigabyte and Asrock are good choices.
     
    I suppose you COULD use asus if you plan to absolutely baby your board, but who plans to do that? At some point you will have to remove your motherboard from it's case for cleaning, installing a CPU cooler, or even just doing a board swap for an upgrade. If your asus board dies, then there goes your ability to resell the board to get some money back.
     
    Now why is this?
     
    I think it's because if anything on an asus board stops working like the SATA controller, the entire board will refuse to boot. If something breaks on a gigabyte or Asrock board, the board will continue to function, just with that particular functionality no longer working. For example, an asus board might refuse to boot if one of it's RAM slots is dead. Meanwhile the same dead RAM slot on a gigabyte or Asrock board just means that RAM slot no longer works but the board will still boot up and keep working with the still functioning RAM slots. This is just a guess.
     
    Is this planned obsolescence? I'm not sure.
