    Spannerhands got a reaction from JoeyDM in Price of silicon wafer rising sharply   
    In the production market today there has been a massive increase in the cost of recycled and kraft papers (single wall packaging) & corrugated products (Boxes) due to a Far East paper shortage. Does not make the news, but making a much larger impact.

    Spannerhands got a reaction from Bajantechnician in FX9590 Project Cool Down   
    Needed a new cooling solution for my FX9590 (bought for £299) so don’t flame me for buying one…

    Anyway, the FX9590 having a 220W TDP overclocking it sort of maxed out the H100i abilities and made everyday operation of computer a bit loud, as fan often went to max during only light load, and with that any hopes or aspirations of overclocking the FX9590 was dashed…

    So I decided to do a bit of an overkill solution and here are the results…

    Hope you like…
