    Nick980 got a reaction from Mel0nMan in Delidding an old AMD CPU, whoops!   
    Had an old Phenom II lying around and wondering if I could delid it to get a look at the die (because I'm bored and stupid), too say it didn't go well is an understatement, AMD definitely used solder back then as  well. Dont worry, the CPU was dead long before I tried this but thought people might enjoy the image.

    Nick980 got a reaction from whm1974 in Retailers Price Gouging :(   
    Was momentarily excited today when i spotted some 6700XT for sale at my local PC retailer, that quickly turned to sadness when I spotted they were charging similar prices to the eBay scalpers. Clearly going to be well toward Christmas before I can get my hands on a card. Retail price on AMD website is £411.60, Can't believe retailers are charging insane prices, AMD/Nvidia should refused to supply cards to them if this is the case

    Yes, they do look normal because sequential is the only sector that gains real advantages from RAID 0. After having looked at dozens of laptop tests with RAID 0 models, pretty much none has increased 4K rates. The results are perfectly fine and among the reason why I think RAID with NVMe SSDs is useless.

    As far as I'm aware the two terms are interchangeable and mean the same thing
