    It was -2C today. However, there was no frost/ice on the roads at all meaning my driving test wasn't canceled and I passed!  
    I can now officially drive in the UK and anywhere that accepts an International Driving Permit (in 8-9 months however as to get an IDP, you need to be at least 18).

    Upgraded the connection between the x299 and x399 rigs.
     
    10GbE is very impressive.  While it sucks that it still bottlenecks the NVMe RAIDs, it's still a hell of a lot faster when moving large files between the rigs compared to the old 120 MB/s gigabit.

    Great.  My dog is an AMD fanboy.  Oh well, I still like him.  I just don't trust him as much now.  
     
    He used to hang out next to my x299 rig all the time until x399 came along.  Don't read too far into that AMD fans as he's also known to lick his own ass.

    I can't say that this video was very good TBH.
    I mean, come on, who uses an i3-7100 when the G4560 exists? They could have built a PC with a G4560 and a 1060 or 580, for (roughly) the same amount of money and it would have performed much better than that i3/1050 Ti build.
     
    And we should not forget that if you want to play games online on console, you have to pay $60/year. Online multiplayer is completely free on PC, so you could use those $60 to get a better CPU or graphics card

    So the testing begins.
     
    I've dialed in stable overclocks for both the 1950x and 7900x.  The 1950x is set to 4 GHz on all cores and the 7900x is set to 4.9 on all cores with 4 boosting to 5 GHz.  The 1950x is a bit more shaky at this speed than the 7900x.
     
    Temps on the 1950x are better than those of the 7900x despite the 7900x being delidded and the 1950x having 6 more cores.  
     
    Before starting, I wanted to make sure that both chips were outputting the expected performance at their given overclocks.  With that said, in Cinebench R15, the overclocked 1950x easily punches the overclocked 7900x in the face when it comes to multi-threading, but the 7900x completely decimates the 1950x in single-threaded performance.  
     
    1950x - 3416 multi / 164 single
    7900x - 2743 multi / 224 single
     
    I've started comparing Handbrake and I can say that the multi-threaded Cinebench results of the 1950x don't necessarily translate into better multi-threaded performance in this application.
