    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from oveek123 in i7-8700 = 4.30 Ghz on all six-cores (Turboboost)   
    Dope post. I have the same CPU with an H7 and I set the windows power limit to max performance and I've had 4.3 on all cores 24/7. I got the H7 on that one Newegg sale like a few months back and I don't get more than like 65c under load so it's been a great run

    IdiotPenguin reacted to Sakkura in Refresh rate question for existing VR users   
    It depends on the person. It's not comparable to monitor refresh rates either. An insufficient refresh rate in VR can be much more uncomfortable.
     
    You'll have to try it to know.

    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from Slottr in way to see if my gpu is limited   
    GTA and CPU don’t mix that well even for higher end chips so you might wanna upgrade sooner or later

    IdiotPenguin reacted to Commodus in Tradeoffs between Android (phones and the software itself) and IPhones   
    I'd say Android is to the iPhone as a tuner car is to a leased Mercedes.
     
    Android is more customizable and flexible, and likely to be a better value if all you care about is raw specs.  However, it's also flakier, trickier to use and not well-supported.  The iPhone?  You can't tweak much or do absolutely anything you want with it, but you do get a more reliable, easier-to-use and properly supported platform, and the seemingly lower specs may belie superior performance in key areas (for example, Apple's six-core A12 chip is generally faster than all the eight-core chips in current high-end Android phones).
     
    Personally, I prefer the iPhone simply because I'm more interested in getting fundamental smartphone tasks done than tinkering with my device, and I want a strong support network both for updates and in case anything goes wrong.  But I also wouldn't fault someone for getting a good Android phone if they have use cases that Apple won't touch (like pen input on a phone) or simply crave a specific hardware feature.

    Apple pros:
    iOS is better in terms of built in features (e.g. iMessage, FaceTime, App Store, AirDrop)
    Better software integration (as Apple only make the software for their own brand whereas Android is made for dozens of brands)
    Their phones age better (depends whether planned obsolescence kicks in though)
     
    Apple cons:
    Everything is tied into the Apple ecosystem
    I've found their devices to be more fragile than Android phones (this is a personal experience though so don't be 100% on this)
    Their phones are overpriced
     
    Android pros:
    More devices to choose from
    Better price to performance
    Quicker access to new features (in screen fingerprint scanner, multiple cameras etc.)
    You can get phones that perform like flagship phones for a more budget friendly price (e.g. OnePlus 6/6T, Pocophone F1)
     
    Android cons: 
    With Samsung phones the battery degrades quicker 
    You can brick your phone if you screw up a mod

    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from Levent in Does 32 GB RAM give you more performance?   
    Miniscule performance gains. These "pro gamers" are probably content creators as well so more ram = content creation stuffs yknow?

    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from Origami Cactus in First time builder, need some final advice (AMD)   
    I've never heard of GoodRam but that's probably just me being clueless (if its a good company go for it but you might wanna look into like Samsung or Crucial and other more known companies) You should also go for a 2TB drive instead of 1 unless you're absolutely certainly sure you won't need more (but even then its only like 15 dollars for an entire terabye more)
     
    That case and PSU could probably be replaced with better picks

    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from Ehanderson in Recently Upgraded GPU. Still have old one. Worth it to SLI?   
    I don't think mirroring a monitor connected to your 1080 Ti would impact the performance
     
    You also can't SLI a 760 with a 1080 Ti, only the same cards

    IdiotPenguin got a reaction from iLostMyXbox21 in why do people spend so much on Fortnite skins?   
    People around my age group (teens) are usually the ones who buy skins. Since their frontal lobe isn’t completely developed yet, they might not know the value of money and what they could use the money they spend on skins on something else more important. Nah just kidding it’s all for the clout fam

    IdiotPenguin reacted to Wh0_Am_1 in why do people spend so much on Fortnite skins?   
    Because they want to show off to other people, and they have the money. Honestly I think this is monetization done right.

    Among already released games there aren't any must-haves right now, but I might pick up Two Point Hospital, Surviving Mars, Windlands 2, or Red Matter.
     
    Fallout 76 is right around the corner (already in preorder beta), but I dunno... have to wait for reviews on that.
     
    Farther off I have my eyes on Imperator: Rome, Cyberpunk 2077, Just Cause 4, Starfield, Elder Scrolls VI, Metro Exodus, and maybe Rage 2.
