  1. No I quoted the right person lol. It was a joke, since you wrote a novel
  2. I mean i can get about 120hp/200tq or so out of an adjustable waste gate mod and a tuner. Too bad the stock trans is actually worse than bicycle gears
  3. Is this one of those copy pasta memes? Yeah you right. I still need to figure out a plan to get my truck up to respectable numbers while building a drift car... that’s gonna suck lol. Time to find a second job
  4. Honestly I wouldn’t worry about it too much. As long as the voltage adjusts, and doesn’t go way too high. You can try turning up your LLC, but I wouldn’t go more than 1-2 below the highest for a daily OC
  5. Most motherboards are either .001v, .005v, or .00625v increments. Kind of weird that yours would be .016. When was the last time you update the BIOS?
  6. Linus has made a lot of videos...
  7. RAM’s eco diesel makes 420 lb ft. That’s better than the hemi, which I think is he only V8 option. It probably gets 30 or 40% better gas mileage also. I don’t know what Chevy’s diesel makes, not what the Ranger’s diesel is suppose to make. edit: feels bad when my 5.9L makes the same power numbers as a 3.0 V6
  8. RAM prices are supposed to continue dropping into 2019, and 3x less expensive than normal is usually not a good thing
  9. That would assume diesel takes the place of gas, meaning the majority of the market. I think we both know that’s not happening. That said, if you need to warrant a bigger diesel in a half ton, buy a bigger truck. If you want a smaller diesel in a 3/4 ton, you don’t need a 3/4 ton. As for cars, I just want a diesel golf hatch or rabbit pick up with anti-lag (rabbit pick up when? 2022?)

    GTA 5 PC Infinite Loading Screen

    I’ve been experiencing the same during random loading times in online. Not entirely sure why, as last time I played the game (probably 6+ months ago) there were no problems (other than GTA V just generally being long to load).
  11. I’m so glad diesels are starting to come in smaller forms here. Maybe one day I’ll get my wish of more diesel options in cars. Too bad by then no one will sell cars in the US.

    Looking for some info for first build

    Like I said, glad I can help. The more people with good PCs, the less consoles! Jk I’m not that slob-y lol. It’s crazier to think some people budget up to or over 50% of their build money on a GPU alone. A $2000 might have a 2080 Ti, and those are $1200 lol. Weird about the monitor, but not surprised. There are so many monitor model numbers that who knows. MX-4 is a good paste. Stock TIM is usually fine but you’ll get a couple degrees off with that.

    8700k Cooler Issue

    That's what I'm saying. Funny you said that, I mentioned that on the discord server like 2 hours ago lol. Might as well just glue the CPU to the top of Mt Everest. That oughtta be enough, right?

    Looking for some info for first build

    stop apologizing. Extra fans are always good to have around, never know when you need one. Weird your case only has one front fan mount though. Glad I can help. Not sure. The GPU should be 2.0, but the monitor might be 1.4. Who knows with monitors honestly. HDMI is garbage anyways lol. If I had a third displayport cable I wouldn't need to use it at all... alas. Also, freesync is essentially free to add to any monitor, since it uses a standard protocol included in every TV/monitor, so it's basically just a selling point for anyone that wants extra street cred, yo.

    8700k Cooler Issue

    Actually I don't think anything is a good representation of cooling an 8700K until you delid it and know that the TIM under there is at least covering the whole die... lol.
