    You didn't overclock the case?

    i might just go with the 7700K & 1080 since my MB supports the 7700K

    Factory OC got a reaction from Himommies in Do motherboards support 1440p 120hz+?   
    At 1080P, you'll definitely hit 60 FPS (low - med) constant, maybe 70-80FPS with a overclock, but don't expect 144FPS. But if 60FPS does it, you'll have a nice experience.

    Factory OC got a reaction from kirashi in Xbox one emulation for crossplay?   
    Well, I'm pretty sure Microsoft would check the hardware for legitimacy, and I'm pretty sure if there was a emulator, it would only be able to play offline due to what I said previously. And emulators are not illegal, the games that people pirate to play them on a emulator are.

    Factory OC reacted to TDP_Equinox in Noticed high CPU Usage after installing Honey (LTT Sponsor)   
    During the WAN show this week there was a new sponsor, Honey (https://www.joinhoney.com/linus). 
    I figured I'd give it a shot and installed it. 
    That night, malwarebytes popped up saying that it quarantined a cryptominer. I thought this was my etherium miner folder and promptly ignored it. 
    The next day (today) I noticed that youtube was choppy at 1.5x speed. I checked task manager, and chrome was using 50% of my 4790K. I restarted, same thing. Malwarebytes again popped up warning me of a cryptominer. 
     
    So I removed the Honey Extension and usage went back down to 0% immediately. 
     
    Re install Honey; usage back to 50% and malwarebytes freaks out right away.. 
     
    Perhaps LTT should look into this sponsor and consider dropping them. You guys are generally pretty good at making sure your sponsors are reputable, and I can understand that things get missed; but I hope that someone sees this ( @nicklmg ) and looks into it. 

    Addition: Installed at 10:30 PM, malwarebytes didn't react until 3AM and symptoms were not noticed until around the same time. The second install, however, spikes CPU usage immediately. 
    Malwarebytes scan results:  
     
    Addition 2: It appears the site no longer affects GPU usage, and installing the extension no longer gets flagged as a crypto miner/affects CPU usage from what I can see. 
    There doesn't appear to be any statement from Honey, so I can only assume that they dealt with the issue quietly and hoped no one noticed. 
    I won't continue using the extension, but it may be relatively safe now.

    for sure, i mean it doesnt ALWAYS have deals on everything you want to buy, but in terms of how easy to use it is and having the possibility of saving a little bit of money here and there as well as being able to compare price lines for those wanting to know if their getting a good deal easily, i cant really see a reason to not have it  BTW love LTT, and we need more super fun videos =P

    I know some of my friends like it, but where I live, sites don't really take advantage of it, so I can't really say how it is.

    Oh yeah. I miss clippy. He was so friendly, and didn't have a super creepy voice that sounds like you PC's going to kill you.
    Sadly, you can ask Cortana weird questions, and she answers them.

    Hey, how's the Pixel?
    Oh no, I like this rom.
    Why do you have a custom rom?
    Because, um, it didn't have a OS...
    That's why I'm with Apple.
    At least I have a functioning calculator...

    I would like a old school season, like running a certain couple old games with components not exceeding a certain period (2000,2005,2007,2009, any year really can work here).
