With Navi we shouldn't need it. Tdp is much better. AIB cards should be fine but this stock cooler has got to definitely go

The only time the stock cooler is useful is where like my mate he just ordered one but didn't have enough in the budget to swap cases has crappy airflow then and only then is it viable.

I still think the 1080ti blowers are the nicest looking on the market. Shame I replaced mine with 2 blocks.

The 20xx series are drab in comparison.

Noo picture because y'all know what it looks like, but I got a 970 Evo 500GB from Prime Day. Wasn't on sale but figured why not. Was going to get the 970 Evo Plus model but for the same capacity, it is $20 more. Not really worth it tbh.

Was also debating getting a x2 NVMe drive 1TB for the same price as the Evo i bought as it was a prime deal, but I would rather have the speed and no need for 1TB.

Partition it man. I've done so with my 1tb Intel drive. 300gb for the OS and 700 for my fave games.

Can't stand partitioning stuff. I like everything complete on its own drive.

I'm still eyeballing the 2TB Intel NVME. It's slow, but for $260CDN, you can't beat the price.

2000 Specialized Fat Boy Hemi. Always wanted one. Got it super cheap without the wheels. Bars are going (not original) cranks have gone in the trash can. I bought these wheels.



A BB conversion kit to Euro.



Nice little project bike. Will get some more stuff for it Friday.

Not gonna lie spent over $200 yesterday because Prime Day and as I am getting ready to switch to a NCase M1(most of it was for SFX PSU), and of course, I got a notification this morning from Amazon that if I spend over $200 TODAY ONLY I get $22 in credit, basically gift card. Doesn't apply to previous purchases.

Pretty freaking annoying if you ask me. Can't even return for refund and then buy it again I am pretty sure. If nothing is wrong with them I believe even with Prime you still have to pay shipping. Though I am not sure. It's just stupid as to why Amazon would do it the last day when they could have done it for either day as long as you spend $200.
