    its a torrent. weirdly enough i went to down load it again and its no longer available to download from the site i got it from yesterday morning. i may end up buying some games later this year after i buy a new gpu and better cpu.

    i ordered the corsair vengeance 2x8gb lpx 3600mhz c18 kit for $77 cnd off amazon. this is the first upgrade toward my itx build that i can still use in my current build. im not sure why but there are two options to buy, one is in stock and over $100 and the one i got wont be instock till the 26th and is $77.
    https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-Venge...+vengeance+16gb+3600mhz&qid=1600601393&sr=8-5
    https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-CMK16GX4M2Z3600C18-PC4-28800-Desktop-Vengeance/dp/B07FBVYFKH/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=corsair+vengeance+16gb+3600mhz&qid=1600601311&sr=8-8&th=1

    looks like the difference is build date. the one i got has a d and the more expensive has a z. the d is a few months older.

    so it turns out my cpu and the 2600 im eventually buying only supports 2933 ram speed so i canceled the order for the 3600mhz kit and got the 3200mhz kit instead. saved $2 and it will arrive sooner.

    I was watching that yesterday when they hit 14059. They got it just a tad higher when they went colder again. It was around -180C that they would’ve hit this record. It’s extremely impractical.

    FWIW, the 3090 looks like it’ll hit 13,150 out of the box.

    Vendor was out last week to replace the mainboard in this Lenovo T570 laptop.

    Customer contacted me this morning stating "unable to connect to WiFi"... Well it's because of this. :confused::oops::mad:

    Damn that picture is HUGE! Sorry about that ya'll.

    Yes the black & white wires were off the Intel WiFi adapter. I don't believe the person dropped the laptop. I think the vendor (who was out last week) did not reconnect them when she put a new mainboard in.

    Ohhh that makes sense. And the other two wires to the right that are loose? What are those for? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a laptop that looked like that
