  1. It does to some extent as it includes synthetic diamonds for efficient thermal conductivity.
  2. IC Diamond 24 Carat thermal paste.
  3. Another thing worth considering is a graphite thermal pad, it is reusable, never needs to be replaced, and perform almost as well if not as equivalent to most high grade thermal pastes.
  4. There is also risk of seepage as it is a liquid, thereby it can leak out regardless of whether you applied to much or not, .

    I think I know, but do I really??

    Well, at the time most games did not need 3GB of VRAM, and of course Nvidia wanted to continue their sales of the 1060 card plus they were probably sitting on a decent stock pile of poorly binned P106s so they probably decide to release this to improve their bottom line and better compete with the RX 470/480 4GB. Honestly the only thing wrong with it is that they decided to call it "GTX1060 3GB" instead of something like GTX 1060 light, or something like that.

    Because VRAM is/was expensive.

    Thunderbolt gpu on a desktop?!

    Would it work? if it is indeed thunderbolt 3, then yes, Is is practical? Most likely not, you may lose as much as 20% of your performance.

    new phone (~400 euros budget)

    Well first it has a Quad DAC headphone jack, allowing it to power high end headphones, it has LG's amazing "manual mode" (a camera mode) which allows you to control things like ISO, exposure, white balance, RAW photos, and etc. allowing you to take near professional grade photos if you know what you are doing,it can record FLAC audio, it also has a snapdragon 845, and etc.

    What's your budget? Also if you are interested in getting the latest and greatest, the S3 is last gen, currently Samsung is on the S4.

    Fake Chinese SD Card Scam!

    If SDHC does not set off any alarms then I don't know what will, as the SDHC spec maxes out at 32GB.

    Issues with Windows installation.

    Hey everyone, I recently needed to reset my computer for one reason or another, and the reset failed so I setup the Windows installation media tool on another computer, and created a USB installation drive, after installing windows on my computer, I noticed that oddly enough, the HDD went undetected, even though at the start of the install it was detected, I chalked it up to a corrupted installation, so I redownloaded the tool, and tried again, and ran into the same issue, then tried the tool on another computer, this time the HDD was detected and usable but the CPU was constantly under load, I left it for a day and came back to find no change, the system was eating at least 60% of the CPU, so I tried another computer no change, and left it for a week hoping that whatever issues/corruptions were present would work themselves out, as it has now been a week and I still have this issue, I have come to ask for help on finding a way bring my computer back online and running efficiently. Thankyou in advance for any help!
