  1. Caffeine and its derivatives are fine, which is all this gum has in it. whats frowned upon are harder and usually illegal substances.
  2. 5 gum = ~$ 0.018 per stick Razer Respawn= ~$ 0.187 per stick EDIT: Just read the article fully and its a 5 Gum partnership... good choice. id imagine the cost difference is largely in the additives and razer isnt actually making bank on this. roughly 10x the cost per stick compared to my regular gum, but far from the worst price ive seen either... idk, people will buy it. If its what @PineyCreek says it is, i may even buy it or source the same product cheaper.
  3. Could not tell from the pictures if anything got in the way with a GPU in place, since things get shuffled around depending on what hardware is in... I suppose only one way to find out!
  4. Hello! Looking to do a build in the SG14 as i absolutely need a 5 1/4" drive and its about the smallest case i know of that supports one and is basically a better thought out version of my current case, the Thermaltake Lanbox Lite. My question is as such. Does anybody know if i can have a full length GPU and a 5 1/4" drive in the case at the same time? Its difficult to tell from the photos and the website doesnt say. Thank you in advance!
  5. Its a fine paste, but being preapplied curing starts immediately and shipping conditions (heat, moisture, etc) are horrid on paste. ESPECIALLY on coolers bought from online retailers. I recently bought Noctua NTH-2 and repasted my macbook air with it, very happy and its now my go to paste
  6. Preapplied thermal paste usually isnt good. Reapply with some high quality stuff and make sure your mount is good
  7. I was referring to the OS developers themselves, not apps... apps are of course a mixed bag. However, as efficient as the linux kernel is, there is quite literally nothing more efficient than knowing exactly what hardware your software will see. THAT is where iOS gets its buff in optimization, and partially why iPhones get away with lagging behind in battery sizes, RAM, etc... And for the record i have on several occasions in my life dialed android phones, including cyanogenmod and other "stock" android versions.
  8. iOS also has vastly superior software optimization than google can ever achieve, since the iOS devs know exactly what the software will see and can code around it. Android doesnt have that same level of certainty.
  9. I dont see those two things as directly related. Me, personally, i am 100% a hardware enthusiast. I work on hardware for a living, super specialized board level stuff sometimes. I am exactly the kind of person most PCMR stereotypes would dictate as an Android user from what i know. I also own and daily *deep breath*: 2014 Macbook Air 13" 2020 iPad Pro 12.9" Apple Magic Keyboard Apple Pencil Apple Watch Series 4 44mm Stainless Steel edition Airpods Pro iPhone 11 Pro Max iPhone 6 Plus Modded 6th Generation iPod Classic (battery mod, flash modded) Im not a fanboy, but it safe to say for my personal devices i have a preference... I of course have my pc's, but those only get used for gaming. Even video editing is done on apple.
  10. Word is theyre quite good, though my radwagon (i did end up deciding on getting one) hasnt arrived yet. I know Louis Rossman praises them. No way to be correct or incorrect about subjective opinion, also, i paid less than that for my radwagon because of preorder pricing. I will admit that the value proposition is there with the envo going down in price and the radwagon going up, but i felt the higher cargo capacity of the radwagon and overall accommodations (the radwagon being designed as an ebike) were worth it since i intend to use the bike for work as well as commute.
  11. While it is overclockable, only do it for fun. You wont see much out of it.
  12. Depends on what the price per share is. Stands to be some good quick money if you catch it early and then sell when it over-inflates from initial hype.
  13. I got a little in my board as well, you should be fine. AM4's socket has a very tight tolerance beneath the socket itself, meaning thermal paste bridging pins underneath the socket is near impossible. Even if it is a conductive paste, it should not cause issues as the pins already conduct to the socket itself.
  14. Not only that... linus very rarely if ever writes his own videos. Pay attention to the credits people
