    If only you would do it straight... it kinda hurts my "premium" thing. To be fair, never delidded anything, so I have no idea how hard it is to align IHS correctly, but it looks like something what you would buy on aliexpress. Especially on b-rolls ;p

      Honestly, would it have killed them to stop and cut that tape square? Sure, it won't be seen, but neither will that gold top. So... same same.

    A fiber optic laser isn't really a type of laser. It has only to do with the light's being inserted into a fiber optic cable before it's coupled with whatever you want to use it. The term is usually " fiber coupled laser," and they're usually adjustable and usually not very powerful unless you want them to be (i.e. if you pay for a model that's powerful).

    I think a matte black PCB, like lets say an EVGA GPU type color of PCB or ASUS motherboard type PCB color would look better and maybe a brushed gold heat spreader would look nicer but imo they did an awesome job frfr

    they don't need to do better cosmetically... it already costs $500 CAD last time i checked might be cheaper now. It won't ever show on your rig because of the cooler. By doing it better cosmetically and increase production cost, they won't do it. If it increase retail value because they did something cosmetically, i wouldn't want them to do it.

    i once fixed an aunties desktop. it was doing 70 degrees with the heat sink. so i put a 5 cents coin on the cpu. the damn thing dropped 5 degrees. wonder what would happen if i put a 20 cents coin on it?

    just wondering why didnt you just go with a silver plating? given ya know heat transfer rate is all that matters for the face of the cap.... o.O given gold is about a 1/3rd the heat conductivity rate vs silver and is even below copper.... you actually just insulated your chip. But at least you didnt nickle plate it... which is HORRID for thermal transfer dun dun dun for all you nickle plated waterblock users...

    you could of used cermark and sprayed it on the ihs.. then use the laser and what cermark does it turns to a pretty black ceramic coating where the laser went over..just look up cermark lasered metal

    when gold plating the thinness allows you to see the base material underneath. this is also why gilting(mercury based gold plating) has a different color, it has a thicker layering and also the mix with the mercury has an effect.
    also purity of gold used will have an effect.

    Since 5ghz was sustained, thermals didn't bottleneck speed. The maximum CPU boost did. Curious as to what maximum sustainable Clockspeed is with that material.

    X86 is a backdoored bloated architecture
    By the way no architecture has had a completely formaly proven security (that i like to define as the concurrent existence of availability to authorized users, confidentiality of privileged information, integrity against improper system modification, correctness of service delivery)
    I have not gone througt all risc V documentation but i am not sure that they tryed to prove maximum information leakeage between domains througt covert Channel analysis am i wrong ?

    It seems like Linus has more competent people working under him, but because he wants to do everything himself he just ends up screwing shit up more often than not, and the poor bastard just has to stand there thinking to himself "I knew this was gonna happen" and "not again...". And obviously one word out of place, and Linus being the dick that he is will fire their asses.
